TCHC White

A tough loss for the TCHC Whites last Saturday against REDBLACKS, 6-4. White was fighting hard and early in the game the big heavy solid D, Meehan had his own strategy to show the young Vilmer the Swede, how old school hockey works with a ‘friendly’ hit to the chest. Didn’t help the White team much though.

The first 15 mins of the game was scoreless with lots of chances but no goals as goalies on both sides denied all attempts to score.

The REDBLACKS opened the scoring with a nice top shelf goal by Hiroki Iida, assisted by Young Vilmer. Christ Colluci with an individual effort and Eric La Cara from Mr. “Pony Tail” Kuyama san closed out the 1st period scoring.

Slick skating Noah Honch got the Whites on the board at the end of the first period on a great end-to-end rush.

Hiroki Yamashita got TCHC White a second goal early in the 2nd frame, but veteran D-man, Brent Carlson picked off a cross ice pass from long time foe Grey Beard Meehan, skated in alone and roofed one to put the REDBLACKS up 4-1 after two periods.

Josh Fly tallied the 3rd goal for the Whites, assisted by Chaw Dog and new comer Chris Ludgate. However, La Cara notched his second goal of the game on a nice feed from Young Vilmer.

Honch made another patented rush up the left wing and went top cheddar on a sharp angle shot, perfectly placed above the keeper’s shoulder on the short side to bring TCHC within one goal.

It was 5-4 REDBLACKS into the last minute of play. This time the REDBLACKS would not be denied and Chris Colucci put the nail in White’s coffin with a last second marker to give the REDBLACKS a 6-4 victory.

The pick for MVP was very easy and goes to Eric La Cara, coming straight from the ski slopes and was flying around the ice like he had a long and soft Saturday.

This author wonders if this is first time in the TCHC history to have three Swedes on the ice at the same time. Was it history?
