The first period saw mostly fantastic goaltending from from both
ends, including Scott Brady who instead of skating, was in the crease tonight.
Both made excellent saves to open it up. The Sewer Rats were picking up the
play, and opened up the scoring to make it 1-0. Dave Petzinger would sit for a
rough, but before the Sewer Rats' power play was over, the got a penalty. Dave
Scioscia's double minor for roughing and unsportsmanlike conduct put him out of
action, but not content with ending the first period with a 1-0 lead. Sewer Rats
made it 2-0 at 4-on-4 play, with the Rodents now starting to wear down the
Sewer Rats increased it to 3-0 on the power play with a slapper, but the Puck Pimps woke up with Chris "The Kazmanian Devil" Kazlauskas roofing one over the Sewer Rats goalie to make it 3-1. Sewer Rats would be assessed a trip, but their goalie kept out the Puck Pimps during their power play. Unfortunately for the Sewer Rats, after matching minors to the Rodents and Dave Sheeler of the Puck Pimps (roughing and slashing respectively), they would continue their way to a potential comeback when Dave Petzinger scored at even strength to make it 3-2. The Pucks Pimps' momentum would be curtailed when Scioscia would get a roughing penalty on which the Sewer Rats scored to make it 4-2, but a Chris "Kazmanian Devil" Kazlaukas goal from John Vivino got the Puck Pimps to down one once more and made it 4-3. T he Puck Pimps would again dent their momentum and comeback hopes with a Vivino trip, then a Petzinger cross check for Sewer Rats 5-on-3. Sewer Rats would score while up two men, and it was 5-3 Rodents going into the third.
The third period would see the Puck Pimps not go quietly, but eventually a Sewer Rats goal put them up 6-3. The Sewer Rats were now comfortable, finishing off the game with two more goals for an eventual 8-3 final. Scott Brady turned aside 27 of 35 shots in the loss.
