Now about the game. Despite badly outshooting Vaughan, the Storm squeaked out a sloppy 2-1 win tonight. The win moves the Storm to within 3 points of Vaughan with 4 games in hand. Scoring tonight was Jasmine with a slapshot from the point that the goalie never saw. It was a rough night for Jasmine who spent most of the night on her rear end as a result of a faulty skate edge. Winning goal was scored by Heather. Sheri chipped in with two assists.

An anonymous tipster reported seeing the two big ice-resurfacing machines chug through a Burger King drive-through and return to the rink about 12:30 a.m. on Nov. 10. The squat, rubber-tired vehicles, which have a top speed of about 5 mph, drove 1½ miles in all.
The Zamboni operators, both temporary city employees, had to negotiate at least one intersection with a traffic light on their late-night creep from Idaho Ice World. The bad news is that the employees could still face charges for driving an unlicensed vehicle in a public street.

Tonight was the directorial debut for our own Rebecca R. in a production of Arthur Miller's The Crucible at Cardinal Carter. The play is one of my favourites and I was certainly not disappointed. I was impressed by every aspect of the productions from the actors to the sets and costumes. It's obvious the talent in our dressing room goes well beyond the arena. And I'm sure Rebecca appreciates the support from her team mates. Congratulations again Rebecca!

Well eight more penalties for the Storm tonight that bring the total to fourteen for the day. Our opponents did not fair any better with a total of sixteen in our first two games. The crackdown on obstruction has made penalty killing critical and tonight Madeleine was up to the challenge. In the final minutes of the game she did a tremendous job tying up the opposition while we were down two players. The final score against Russell was 1-1 and both teams scored their goal while playing 5 on 3. Heather scored again with her third goal of the day. Does that count as a hat trick?
So here we are in Ottawa having survived the trip to the rink. Coaches Willie and Bruce made the 15 minute trip into a 60 minute adventure. We saw Cornwall, Carlsbad Springs, two cows, four pigs and a farmer's daughter before we finally found Ray Friels arena. But the trip was worth it as we took Rockland 3-0 to start the tournament out with a big win. The refs were a little whistle happy calling 16 minors before calling the game 3 minutes early because of curfew. Scoring for the Storm was Heather with two and Jasmine with one. Shutout went to Nicki. Off to Nickels for dinner and then Russell.
