Saturday, December 8th B-Div Finals/3rd Seed Match:

Noon Game #2 A-Div Final: All Mesh vs Rebels...All Mesh lead the series 1-0 going in. For two periods the Rebels tried but All Mesh were a pass ahead of them at 2-0 and 6-1 at the breaks. All Mesh went up 7-1 and that is when the Rebels found their game and tilted the floor and roared back to come within a goal at 7-6. The crowd was into it now and then Danika Gratton made a huge play to set up Mike Fuller with the big goal to give All Mesh the game and the championship. Congrats to both teams for yet another entertaining time and to All Mesh for another championship! All Mesh win 9-6.

1pm (3rd Seed Match) Net Masters vs Perfect Blend...the Blend used a first period 3-1 lead to their advantage by playing well defensively after that to build a 6-2 lead heading into the 3rd. Then with Blend seemingly in control up 8-3 the Net Masters rallied to make it 8-7 and time left to tie! The Blend hung on but it was a whale of a finish! Perfect Blend win 8-7.

2pm (Final) Average Joes vs Pylons...the game everyone was waiting for. And it was worth the wait! The two teams played a tight structured game and scoring chances were the result of hard work and creative passing. The team defences were air tight most of the game and the goaltenders were only beaten by perfect shots. The Joes were up 1-0 and 3-1 at the two period breaks. The Pylons made it 3-2 fairly early in the 3rd to set the stage for more back and forth play until finally with goalie pulled the Pylons ran out of time and the Joes scored two into the empty cage to take their 2nd Championship! Congrats to both teams for a splenid Final. Average Joes win 5-2.

Congrats to the Fall 2018 B-Div Champions Average Joes:

 

Highlights Super Saturday semi-finals for the B-Div and Game #1 of A-Final Tuesday, December 4th:

 

B-Div semi-final: Average Joes vs Perfect Blend...a pick-em at best match as this was expected to be a closely played game. it was a close low scoring game with excellent goaltending. Guy in the Joes net was almost invincible and he was the key to to the Joes victory as they were held to 3 goals. The Joes are off to the finals! The Blend will going for the 3rd seed on Saturday. Average Joes win 3-1.

 

B-Div semi-final: Net Masters vs Pylons...the Pylons finishing first were the odds on favourites to win. But the always solid goaltending on the Net Masters is always a factor. However it was no Joey but the back-up Dave Labelle who wanted to prove his worth in the big game! The goaltending from Labelle almost stole the show! At 6-6 the Pylons needed a late goal to punch their ticket into this Saturdays final. The Net Masters will try for 3rd. Pylons win 7-6.

 

Game #1 A-Div Final: Rebels vs All Mesh...fasten your seat-belts!! The All Mesh were up 3-0 and it stayed that way a long time after that. The teams traded a pair each in the 2nd for a 5-2 score. Then up 6-4 the All Mesh weathered a few close calls and pulled away late to take game #1 of the Final. Game #2 this Saturday. All Mesh win 8-4.

 

December 1 Highlights:

 

A-Div: Orleans 93's vs Rebels...game #7 of challenge series. Rebels go in 1-2-0 and 93's 1-0. The game was excellent as expected. It was close for two periods plus and then the 93's shut-down the Rebels back door play and their down low plays to take over the game in the 3rd. Some nice triangle passing set-ups also powered the 93's through this one. Orleans 93's win 10-5.

 

B-Div: Pylons vs Perfect Blend...another well played game and potential finals preview. Close the entire game but the Pylons were always up a goal or two. Finally the Pylons kept the lead as time ran out on the Blend. Pylons win 8-6.

 

B-Div: Net Masters vs Average Joes...a goalie battle for 2 periods as the goals by the Joe's kept this game at 2-0 until the 3rd period. Then the Joes pulled away for the 2 point. Average Joes win 6-1.

 

A-Div: Game #8 and the final Challenge Series game which have been tremendously successful and fun. The All Mesh came in with a 1-1-1 Challenge Series record while The Block were 0-1. It was a very even game but another game where a team was up a pair and kept the lead throughout as the All Mesh pulled the trick. With the victory by All Mesh the entire Challenge Series ended with a slight edge for the Challengers with 4-3-1 record. All Mesh win 7-5.

 

November 24 Highlights:

 

A-Div: Flint Tropics vs Rebels...Game 5 of the Challenge Series. Challengers held a 2-1-1 record and the Tropics had tied in their first match with All Mesh. The first period was the best at 4-4. The Tropics pulled away for good in the 2nd period with a 5-0 period win. The 3rd was tight again. Fun stuff. Flint Tropics end with a 1-0-1 record for the Challenge Series. Flint Tropics win 12-6.

 

B-Div: Average Joes vs Perfect Blend...a bit of surprise as Perfect Blend built a solid 7-2 lead based on some nice play making not to mention finishing. Everyone was waiting for the Joe's to come roaring back, but they gave it a little go with a pair but missed one great chance and then Perfect Blend protected their goalie well. Perfect Blend win 7-4.

 

B-Div: Pylons vs Net Masters...Joey in the net made some memorable saves in this one as the Pylons had their offensive game in the best gear we have ever seen it. The Net Masters had some offence but 8 was not enough! Pylons win 15-8.

 

A-Div: Dekes of Hazzard vs All Mesh....Game 6 of the Challenge Series and the Dekes had won their game with the Rebels in a very entertaining match a couple of weeks ago. Another amazing game! 3-2 and 7-5 All Mesh leads and then a 2-2 3rd period tie gave All Mesh the win and the Dekes an even 1-1 record for the Challenge Series. The stars of the game were the All Mesh girls and in particular their goalie Melanie Simard! Nice work everyone! All Mesh win 9-7.

November 17 Highlights:

 

All Mesh vs Rebels...the classic match-up. And it turned into all offence. Thing was that the Rebels had it all while the All Mesh had chances but could not bury to keep close. Noteworthy was Olivier Raymond scoring 7 goals for the Rebels in his best performance of his career....the buzz in the French Palace was on as at 7 goals the fans started talking about the record of 10 goals in a game (Belanger and Polk share the record) and after the 7th goal Olivier had many Grade A chances and was robbed by Mel Simard.  Rebels win 14-7.

 

Pylons vs Average Joes...the pundits say this is a big potential final as long they don't meet in the semi-finals. This was a low scoring affair as the goalies were on their games Marquis vs Pilon. The Pylons welcomed back Moose into the line-up and they had enough offence to pull out in front early and stay there. Pylons win 5-2.

 

Net Masters vs Perfect Blend...a close match as the Net Masters struggled on offence but had a stellar defensive game. The Blend were on their game enough to win it. Oh and Olivier Raymond potted 3 more goals in this one! Perfect Blend win 7-4.

November 10 Highlights:

Game 3 of the 8 game Challenge Series: Dekes of Hazzard vs Rebels...what a game what a game what a game! Passing at its best from two very talented teams. The Dekes were up 2-1 and 5-2 at the period breaks. In the the 3rd the French Palace crowd grew and cheered on every great play. The Rebels exhilerated the fans by tying it 5-5 to est-up a wild finish. At 6-6 the Dekes scored with 1:34 remaining. The Rebels pulled the goalie and owned ball posession to set-up 4 glorious opportunities to get the equalizer by agonizingly missed them all. Congrats on yet another great Challenge Series match. Dekes of Hazzard win 7-6.

Average Joes vs Net Masters...the Nets Masters had Joey on fire in the net plus some bench strength to play sound defence. The Net Master scored enough for 1-0 and 3-1 leads at the breaks. The Joes were fired up for the 3rd and worked hard for very entertaining tie. 4-4 tie.

Perfect Blend vs Pylons...this was all Pylons! 3-0 and 9-3 period break leads were enough for comfortably played 3rd period. Pylons win 12-6.

Game 4 of the 8 game Challenge Series: Flint Tropics vs All Mesh...more passing at a high level that accentuated creativity and the beauty of the game. Goaltending was top notch with Ryran Girgrah in the Flint net and Shawn Pilon in the All Mesh net. Not much mesh hit nor flint to light the lamp in the 1st period as All Mesh was up 2-1. The 2nd featured the impressive shooting and over-all offence that was frankly expected for this version of the Series as it was 6-6 after two grilling periods of sizzling play. The 3rd period the tempo even pumped up higher if you could believe it! At 9-8 Flint the All Mesh pulled their goalie for the extra attacker and tied it with 1:27 left. More chances from both sides had the fans on pins and needles but it ended breathlessly with no winner. 9-9 tie.

November 3 Highlights:

The Block vs Rebels...the first of the 8 Challenge Series games for Super Saturday and it was awesome! Most of the goals were in the 1st period as the Rebels were up 4-3. Then the goaltenders took over as the teams passed incredibly well to set up glorious chances. 5-4 Rebels after the teams traded a goal each in the middle frame. It went down to then wire and finally the Rebels scored an empty netter. Rebels win 6-4.

Perfect Blend vs Average Joes...fast forward to the seconds ticking down with Perfect Blend up 5-4 and the Joes just beat the buzzer to knot it up. 5-5 tie.

Net Masters vs Pylons...Pylon go a lead and kept it throughout. But the Net Masters were pesky and kept within striking distance but ran out of time. Pylons win 8-6.

Orleans 93's vs All Mesh...the 2nd game of the Challenge Series looked very compelling on paper with two more passing teams matching up. Lot's of good hands too on both sides. It looked to be a blow-out with the 93's up 6-1 after one period. But All Mesh came back to tie it up 8-8, but with 35-seconds left the 93's scored the winner. Orleans 93's win 9-8.

October 27 Highlights: Next week the Challenge Series starts for the A-Div All Mesh and Rebels followed by their two game championship match-up: The B-Div now play each other until the semi-finals and Finals in December.

Rebels vs All Mesh...so much fun when these two get together. Back and forth with tons of passing and great back-checking. It appeared All Mesh had the game in hand up 2-0 and 3-1 at the breaks and then even up 4-2 late. But at 4-3 the Rebels tied it up with just over a minute to play. 4-4.

Average Joes vs Pylons...another game that appeared to be going one way as the Joes were up 2-0 after one and the Pylons struggling to generate offence. But the Pylons score all 3 of the second period goals for a 3-2 lead. The Pylons were up 5-4 late and scored into an empty net for the win. Pylons win 6-4.

Perfect Blend vs Net Masters...lots of action and goals in this one. 2-2 and 6-5 Net Masters at the two breaks. In the 3rd the Net Masters pulled away. Net Masters win 11-8.

October 20 Highlights:

Rebels vs Average Joes...Natasha Plourde gets her first OBBHA shut-out! Best game of the day. Contrasting styles as the teams were staying within their own game plans....passing vs hustle. Al Jolivet also shone in the net. Rebel win 3-0

Perfect Blend vs Pylons...all Perfect Blend here. They simply tilted the floor and now are in the mix of favourites to win it all! Perfect Blend win 12-6.

All Mesh vs Net Masters...game was well played. All Mesh had the offence but the Net Masters were full value of their efforts that created their own scoring chances. Finally Laurie Reinhart broke the shut-out bid of Melanie Simard in the final two minutes. Lisa Adamson scored two goals and came agonizingly close to getting her first hat-trick. All Mesh win 9-1.

October 13 Highlights:

Tornado's, breaks, turkey...now its the Super Double to get us back on track!

Net Masters vs Rebels....the Net Masters matched the Rebels in every category but short shifts and man to man coverage. The Rebels took advantage! Rebels win 12-1.

Pylons vs Rebels...Rebels were first up for a double dip. The Pylons were fresh and the Rebels finally ran out of steam as this chess match ended with a Pylons impressive run. Pylons win 11-7.

Average Joes vs Net Masters...Net Masters got the break before getting back into it. A close game with minimum scoring chances as both teams played a structured game. The Joes with a short bench used smart game to stay up. Average Joes win 6-2.

All Mesh vs Pylons...Pylons were anxious for their second shot. The Pylons forgot how to cover the back door play and lost coverage for some reason as it would have been closer if they concentrated on the man to man coverage. All Mesh win 12-5.

Average Joes vs Perfect Blend...Joes were not sure if a break or back to back games were advantageous. Average Joes used the same game plan in game one vs the Net Masters in this one. Average Joes win 6-3.

Perfect Blend vs All Mesh....the Blend were up against a back to back and the rested All Mesh crew....as perfect storm? The Blend added some depth from the All Mesh roster and then schooled All Mesh on how to play their own game! Perfect Blend win 13-8.

September 15 Highlights:

Rebels vs Perfect Blend...good old fashioned fun. 7-7 tie.

Net Master vs Pylons...close for two periods with Pylons up 5-4, and the Pylons pulled away in the 3rd. Pylons win 8-4.

Average Joes vs All Mesh...The Joes played well and were within striking distance until late in the 3rd. All Mesh win 10-5.

Opening Night for the Fall Session September 8th...Our 10th Season Anniversary!!

All Mesh vs Rebels...the most classic OBBHA rivalry. These two team are slated to play in the most lengthy play-off series in the history of the OBBHA and with good reason. On top of that the both will be engaging in the spirit of the "Struts Challenge Series" to mark the OBBHA 10th Year Anniversary. So true to form another amazing game opened up the Super Saturday Season! The Rebels were up 3-2 after one period but not before All Mesh's rookie sensation "Lighting Lisa" opened up the scoring for the Fall 2018 season!! The 2nd period ended up locked up at 6-6. In the 3rd with All Mesh up a goal the Rebels pulled the goalie and came a bounce away from tying it up in the last second!!! All Mesh wins 10-9

Perfect Blend vs Net Masters...full disclosure is that the Net Masters won today and it marked the first time in franchise history that they won a an opening game day game! The longtime Net Masters were up 4-0 early and looking like it might be a cake-walk. But Perfect Blend as always never gave up and close to within a goal deficit at 5-4. But the Net Masters took control late in the game for a very fun win. Net Masters win a historic vcitory 9-5.

Pylons vs Average Joes...the Average Joes were slightly above average for two periods as they were up 6-4 at this point. Actually early in the 3rd they played above the pay grade as they were up 8-4. The OBBHA pundits had penned in the Pylons as the odds on favourites to win the B-Div this Fall. As everyone knows you have to prove it in the French Palace. The pundits looked like prophets as the Pylons completely tilted the floors in the later stages of the 3rd period to roar back to tie it up 8-8. Note that Josh McCormick scored 7 goals for the Joes....it was a bit short of the league record of 10 goals set by Trevor Polk and Eric Belanger in 2013 and 2014 in the Sunday A-Div. 8-8 tie

A-Div: All Mesh vs Beastmode...always a great game between the two and this was no different. The difference in this one was a late surge in the 2nd period by Beastmode that gave them a few goal lead they never gave up. Beastmode win 10-6.

B-Div: Average Joes vs Pylons...the last game of the day was well anticipated as the two teams have been playing well of late. The last time the two met the Joes dominated. This time it was a complete reversal as the Pylons played their best yet. Pylons win 10-3.

B-Div: Vanier Voodoo vs Average Joes...this was a typical Joes game. Great goaltending and solid two way effort. The Voodoo could not get the offence untracked and could not score. Guy! Guy! Guy! with the shut-out!! Average Joes win 3-0.

A-Div: Beastmode vs All Mesh...not much was expected from All Mesh as they were win-less and were missing their top player. But they were up with a well deserved 8-4 lead at one point and then hung of for a bit once it was tied 9-9, but had the better chances in the final minute of play. 9-9 tie

Super Saturday February 3 Highlights:

A-Div: All Mesh vs Ottawa Reds...this looked to be the game of the day, but the next one was. This was a close 2nd!

The Reds had the snipers working and then had to hold on as the All Mesh crew made a valiant comeback bid that came up just short. Ottawa Reds win 9-8.

A-Div: Beastmode vs Rebels...the Rebels have always brought out the best in people and their teams. This was no exception as Beastmode quickly picked that this was all about skill and great competition. As the game wore on there was nothing to differentiate the teams from the goalie out. The fans loved it and were buzzing play after play.The game ended in a very appropriate 5-5 tie.

B-Div: The Flying Squirrels vs Net Masters....the OBBHA game is very hard to play with a short bench and with unknown spares as the chemistry factor slowly fades away. So the Squirrels had the advantage from the get-go and won this one playing their style of game. Flying Squirrels win 12-2.

B-Div: Vanier Voodoo vs Pylons...game of the day on the B side! The Pylons were missing a couple of key components but jumped out to an early lead only to fall behind and then come back to tie things up 6-6 in the 3rd. Then with 1:45 remaining Dan Apt with a quick shot scored the winner for the orange-men. Pylons win 7-6.

B-Div: Average Joes vs Perfect Blend....the Blend were missing a couple of key snipers and this hurt their offence that never got untracked. The Joes simply slowly pulled away from start to finish. Average Joes win 10-2.

B-Div: Net Masters vs Pylons...a great way to finish the day! Two teams having fun in a very close barn-burner. Pylons kept getting leads but the Net Masters always clawed their way back into it. Finally at the end the Pylons hung on for a nervy one goal win. Pylons win 9-8.

Super Saturday January 20 Highlights:

A-Div: Ottawa Reds vs Rebels...this was a wonderful game. Hard working with many great plays. Goalies were on their game big-time. After two periods it was 1-0 for the Ottawa Reds. In the 3rd the pace continued at a great pace. Late in the game with the Reds up 3-2 on a rifle shot by Ben Gagnon the Rebels came on strong. The Rebels had a goal missed the replays will show but did not complain and just focused in trying to tie it up and then with their goalie pulled they tied it up with 7-seconds left. Very fun game! 3-3.

B-Div: Net Masters vs Vanier Voodoo...Net Masters had a little step on the Voodoo for the first two periods but heading into the final period it was tied up 3-3. The Voodoo new signing of Cameron Parker came to an early bonus as he was a factor on offence in the 3rd period for several goals for the hard earned win. Vanier Voodoo win 7-5.

A-Div: All Mesh vs Beastmode...this was a perfect game. Everyone went hard and made great plays. Beastmode held a first period lead of 5-2 but All Mesh would not go away.
