Squirrels Special Edition from their Facebook Page:
Game 8, our first against an opponent in the round robin, was against shooting blanks. In the regular season the squirrels struggled to find offence as they lost 7-0. This time, things seem to be perfect. Just before the halfway part of the game Phuong scored his first and padded the Squirrels lead to 5-1. After that, much changed as the Blanks attacked hard, and frequently. Much congratulations must given, as the team scored seven times, however, the Squirrels defensive game struggled a little as they allowed eight, a season high.

The Flying Squirrels vs Average Joes...The not so average guys jumped out to a very quick 2-0 lead and carried this momentum to a 1st period lead of 4-0.

Average Joes vs Cool Runnings...what a classic once the teams settled down after a few early tense moments. It looked like it might be the first ever 0-0 OBBHA tie (Cool Runnings came within 4-seconds of one a few years back). Cool Runnings scored late in the 2nd for a 1-0 lead.

Net Masters vs Pylons...the Net Masters now give every team a very competitive game. This one was all tied up at 4-4 heading into the final period. Looking for the upset win the Net Masters were up 6-5, but the Pylons scored late in the period to win it by 2. Pylons win 8-6.
Super Saturday February 4 Highlights
Tsunamis vs Perfect Blend...for two periods the Wave were in this one at 1-1 after one and only down 6-5 after two periods. But they were beached in the 3rd as the Perfect Blend offensive juggernaut got untracked and blended for a mix of nice goals for the victory. Perfect Blend wins 11-6.
All Mesh vs Rebels...super game for Super Saturday. Rebels are looking super these days with their revamped line-up. Rebels were up 4-1 after one period but the All Mesh squad had many super scoring chances and were maybe super unlucky to be down 7-6 heading to the 3rd. The 3rd was the super period for the Rebels as they were up 10-7 and the All Mesh pulled the goalie and then Super Struts went super stupid looking for a late call to rally the comeback but it was way too super late for any super rally. Rebels win 11-7.

Wings vs The Flying Squirrels...its well known the Squirrels magic number on offence is 4 goals per game. So the figured they would concentrate on defense to see if the could win with those 4 goals. 1-1 and 2-2 period finishes set the stage to see if this new strategy would work!? and it did! The Squirrels got their 4 goals and kept the Wings just under 4. Flying Squirrels win 4-3.

Shootin Blanks vs Net Masters...a wild one! Net Masters were 2-1 at the first break but the Shootin Blanks rebounded for a 6-4 lead by the end of the 2nd.

Super Saturday January 28 Highlights
Perfect Blend vs All Mesh...Perfect Blend was minus their hero "Trevor the Teddy Bear" so All Mesh slowly picked apart the Perfect part of the Blend including their spare goalie AJ who gave a gallant effort. 2-1 after one was for All Mesh was actually a bit of a victory for Perfect Blend. But it grew into a 6-2 lead after two. All Mesh wins 9-4
Operation Win vs Rebels....quite a display of skill on hand as the game intrigued the French Palace crowd early. Operation Win held a 3-2 lead after one and were up 7-3 late in the 2nd period. Then the Rebels had the fans behind them as they clawed back to tie the game very late in the game 7-7 with 4-straight unanswered goals. Operation scored the winner with 2-minutes left and then added two into the empty net as the Rebels tried valiantly to tie it up. Operation Win wins 10-7.
Tsunamis vs Vanier Voodoo...Voodoo had their number one goalie "Nat" nursing a minor injury and this seemed to have the Voodoo off their game from the get-go in this one. Tsunamis built a huge early lead and were up 10-2 heading into the final period. Unlike last week this time the Wave prevented any kind of back-draft comeback and went on for a very solid win. Tsunamis win 14-4
Net Masters vs The Flying Squirrels...the Net Masters knew if they kept the Squirrels to 4 or less goals they would have an excellent chance of winning based on the Squirrels own analysis of previous games they had played. The Net Masters broke a late 4-4 tie and score two huge goals for a very impressive win. Net Masters win 6-4
Cool Runnings vs Shootin Blanks....the Shootin Blanks need a full line-up in order to compete with the top teams including Cool Runnings who have given them this lesson in the past. Cool Runnings win 11-3.
Pylons vs Garbage Men...two teams that have very high effort levels each game and play with passion. The G-Men have been hot and hard to play of late, but had not run up against a stronger passing team. The Pylons mantra is their passing game and when this part of their game is on they have been almost unbeatable. This time it carried them into 2-1 and 5-1 leads after two periods. There were no goals in the final period in a very well played match. Pylons win 5-1.
Average Joes vs Wings...the game of the day was the final act of this Super Saturday. 1-1 after one period and then with the Wings up 4-1 in the middle period the Average Joes roared back to tie 4-4 by the period end.

Operation Win vs Tsunamis...the Wave was all Tsunamis for two periods as they were up 9-3 heading into the 3rd. Then inexplicably the Wave stopped running and this was all Operation Win needed to try and make it Operation tie. They stormed back to tie it up 10-10 and the final two minutes were wild as the teams traded chance after chance in a fire-wagon style finish. 10-10 tie
All Mesh vs Vanier Voodoo...All Mesh had the ball control and passing, but could not make this an easy win by any means. The Voodoo stayed within striking distance right up until the end. All Mesh wins 6-2.
Garbage Men vs Shootin Blanks....the Shootin Blanks look like a team that can be a factor this session, but the G-Men are on their game these days and they simply outworked and outplayed the Shootin Blanks. The G-Men were methodical in their work ethic as they built 3-1 and 4-1 leads and played and even 3rd. G-Men win 5-2.
Cool Runnings vs Flying Squirrels...the rodents were in this one at 0-0 after one period. But after they were down 3-1 after two periods they were forced to open it up and this played right into the hands of the vaunted Cool Runnings offence. Cool Runnings run away in the 3rd period for the 7-2 win.
Average Joes vs Net Masters...the Net Masters played the defending champs well and were up 2-1 after one period. The Net Masters can play amazingly well for a period or two, but seem to have one bad one each game. This time it was in the 2nd period as they were outscored 6-0. Then they played a good 3rd. Average Joes win 9-2.
Pylons vs Wings...this was by far the best the Pylons have played in quite some time. Their passing game of old resurfaced and this powered them to the win. Pylons in 12-5.

Vanier Voodoo vs Rebels...Rebels were up 2-1 after one period. Then Voodoo lost defensive coverage for some reason the rest of the way. Rebels win 11-2.
Tsunamis vs All Mesh...3-3 after one period as Tsunamis looked to give the heavy favourites a match. But the diamond passing of the veteran All Mesh team grounded the Wave for an 8-3 lead after two periods. The Wave adapted for the 3rd period tying it at 1-1. All Mesh win 9-4.
They Flying Squirrels vs Garbage Men...the Squirrels were looking to generate more offence and they did. But just came up short in the end by one goal. The G-Men were up 5-3 in the 3rd and held off a furious comeback bid by the rodents and they were all over the G-Men can (net). G-Men win 6-5.

Pylons vs Cool Runnings...Cool Runnings after a stunning loss in last Fall's final were looking to get back on track for another run at the Cup.

Shootin Blanks vs Average Joes...the defending champs in the Average Joes were down 1-0 after one, but up 3-2 after two. They extended the lead to 4-2 only to have Shootin Blanks rally to tie it late in the game. Shootin Blanks look to be a factor in the early going of this Winter Session. 4-4 tie.

Rebels vs Ottawa Avengers...the game of the day in the A-Div. The Rebels had to call in some recruits to help out the depleted girls. The game was played at high pace and the passing was impressive. The Rebels needed an empty netter to finally put this one away. Rebels win 8-6.
Vanier Voodoo vs Team Iceland...another interesting game between these two rivals. Voodoo had the scoring in this one for the victory. Voodoo wins 8-5.
B-Div play-off Round Robin Game 2:

Cool Runnings vs Shootin Blanks...not much to choose from here! 1-1 late in the first when Cool Runnings score 3 in the final minute of the 1st for a 4-1 lead.

Pylons vs Average Joes...another barn-burner. 2-1 Average Joes after one period and all tied up 3-3 after 2-periods. It stayed that way until with 3-minutw remaining the Pylons scored to take a 4-3 lead. But the Average Joes scored with 2-minutes left and then with 9-seconds left to win it! 5-4 Average Joes win.
The Struts OBBHA Challenge Series...November 6th Inaugural Match:
All Mesh (Saturday) vs Tsunamis (Monday)...All Mesh is undefeated in the Saturday A-Div with almost half their team very solid female performers. Tsunamis is a 9-year veteran team of the OBBHA in the Monday Division (they have seen Blue Zone Gym action and in recent years the French Palace Gym). For this first Challenge Game the game was tied 1-1 after the 1st period as both teams felt each other out with some end to end action. In the 2nd period All Mesh got their vaunted passing game going and had Tsunamis chasing enough to take a 4-1 lead until a late 2nd period goal by the Wave brought the score to 4-2. In the 3rd it was that All Mesh passing game that took over for the most part despite some spirited efforts on offence from Tsunamis. Andrew Gowing in the All Mesh net made key saves to keep the Wave from making All Mesh feel too uncomfortable with their game. Of note Melanie Dagenais was injured and her sister subbed in for her. Stephanie Dagenais of the Saturday Newbies played up front with Struts and scored the hat-trick to the squealing delight of the French Palace faithful...even a helmet was dropped on the floor to salute her 3-goals in lieu of hats! In the end these two teams enjoyed a game that featured contrasting styles and lots of great action. Passing/ball control vs hustle/determination. The All Mesh recipe prevailed 8-4.
This first game of the Struts OBBHA Challenge Series was a success and paves the way for more to come! Here are the two teams that trail-blazed this exciting initiative:
Super Saturday November 5 Highlights!
A-Div: Perfect Blend vs Vanier Voodoo...Perfect Bend was missing only one ingredient this week and this was just enough for Voodoo to take advantage of. The Voodoo worked hard to put themselves in a position to be up by a goal and then they hung on for a big win. Vanier Voodoo win 6-5.
A-Div: Team Iceland vs Rebels...another wonderful match between these two. In the end there was not much too choose from as both teams held momentum swings for periods of time. 6-6 tie
A-Div: Ottawa Avengers vs All Mesh...All Mesh seemed to be in command from the start with a 4-1 first period lead, a 6-3 midway point in the game lead and then a 7-5 lead late in the second. But a last second period goal by the Avengers placed the match at 7-6. The Avengers scored the only goal of the 3rd with 3-minutes remaining. 7-7 tie
B-Div play-off Round Robin Game 1:
Flying Squirrels vs Average Joes...the Flying Squirrels were up 3-1 with 10-minutes left in the game. Then the first place Average Joes exploded for a goals! A crazy defensive game turned on its heels late in the game. Average Joes win 7-4.
Garbage Men vs Shootin Blanks...the G-Men and ladies were up in the first period early and held a 6-3 lead heading into the 3rd period. The Shootin Blanks got it going offensively and held an 8-7 lead going into the final minute of the game. The G-Men pulled the goalie and got the equalizer in dramatic fashion. 8-8 tie
Newbies vs Cool Runnings...Cool Runnings passed their way to victory as the Newbies were unable to string enough of their own passes together to generate enough offence. Cool Runnings win 10-1.
Net Masters vs Pylons...the Pylons were wary of the Net Master improved play. So the Pylons played their collective hearts out to win this one despite the hard effort the Net Masters gave back. Pylons win 8-4.
The Struts OBBHA Challenge Series...starts Sunday, November 6 at 3pm as the Monday Night Div Tsunamis take on the Saturday All Mesh squad!

Super Saturday October 29 Highlights!....B-Div play-off 3-game round robin starts next Saturday...quarter, semi and finals follow
A-Div: Perfect Blend vs Rebels...Perfect Blend were missing some family for this one as their top two stars were not blending in for this tilt. And the blender was off for this one as Perfect Blend forgot how to play the team game of passing. The Rebels on the other hand passed with distinction. Rebel win 9-4.
A-Div: Team Iceland vs Ottawa Avengers...Team Iceland went toe to toe for this one and perhaps deserved a better fate. Ottawa Avengers win 7-4.
B-Div: Pylons vs The Flying Squirrels...the Squirrels were met with a surprise for this one! Al Jolivet their old goalie vs Kaptain Kennedy in their own net. This one on one goalie battle was tied at 1-1 so this game was the rubber match. Over on the Pylons bench the call was who needs DuBroy when you have Simon Zimmerman (aka now "Wooly Booly"). Simon potted one early so to speak as he rear-ended one in as the teams traded goals until late in the 3rd period at 6-6. The Squirrels scored with 2-minutes left to take a 7-6 lead. Then with under a minute left the Pylons pulled their goalie....the Squirrels took a shot at the open net only to have Big Ben make a huge stick save on the Blocker side and then proceed to take a shot that Simon Zimmerman ended up on a rebound with and thn used a very skilled one hopper slam home to send the Pylons into celebration at 7-7 with 50-seconds left. Then as the clock ticked down a warp-around attempt by the Pylons ended up on Simon Zimmerman's stick once again and he made no mistake with 5-seconds left and his goal celebration had the French Palace crowd smiling as this was the hat-trick and game winner! Pylons win 8-7.
A-Div: Vanier Voodoo vs All Mesh...All Mesh was without their #1 goalie Terry Cleroux for this one. The Voodoo jumped out to a 3-1 lead and the first period ended 3-3. Then Voodoo inexplicably lost defensive coverage too many times to keep it close. All Mesh win 12-5.
B-Div: Average Joes vs Garbage Men...Riel Ouimet was back as the #1 goalie for the G-Men and ladies who were quite excited to have him back in the fold. The Average Joes have been better than average are in first place and proved it in this game with great defence and goaltending. Average Joes win 6-2.
B-Div: Newbies vs Shootin Blanks...the featured game of the day as this one was too tough to call by the French Palace pundits. A very well played game. The only difference was the passing was a little better on the Shootin Blanks side. Shootin Blanks win 8-4.
B-Div: Net Masters vs Cool Runnings...there was excitement as the Leafs vs Habs game was to follow! So this "night-cap" match had some zip to it. Net Masters were in this one only down 4-3 after two periods vs a very good team. But Cool Runnings owned the 3rd period. Cool Runnings win 10-3.
Super Saturday October 22 Highlights!
A-Div: Perfect Blend vs Team Iceland...Iceland is known for their slow starts and then something kicks in and they roar back to make a game of it. The storyline was the same today. Perfect Blend win 10-6.
A-Div: Rebels vs All Mesh...a classic everytime! Fun! Fun! Fun! Great passing and nary a whistle the entire game. A one goal game the entire match and the Rebels could not tie it up with the goalie pulled in the final minute. All Mesh win 8-7.
B-Div: Average Joes vs The Flying Squirrels...a low scoring well played defensive game. Average Joes managed to squeeze a few more in while Guy Saumure in the Joes net made a game changing save that wowed the French Palace crowd. Average Joes win 5-2.
A-Div: Ottawa Avengers vs Vanier Voodoo...Voodoo had a very short bench and that was the story. Avengers win 11-0.
B-Div: Pylons vs Shootin Blanks...tough to score in this intense game where clear chances were minimized by great defensive structure and coverage. 1-1 heading into the 3rd period The teams traded goals 10-seconds apart early in the 3rd for a 2-2 tie. Then on a penalty shot Shootin Blanks pulled off the upset win! Shootin Blanks win 3-2.
B-Div: Newbies vs Cool Runnings...Cool Runnings were on their game early despite a fine effort from the Newbies. Cool Ruunings win 9-3.
B-Div: Net Masters vs Garbage Men...Net Masters were looking for their first win and were feeling it! The magic started happening in the 2nd period with the score knotted up at 3-3. The Net Masters scored 3 late 2nd period goals to take a 6-3 lead into the 3rd period. Then the Net Masters had the confidence and used it to power to an impressive first win!! Net Masters win 12-6.
Super Saturday October 15 Highlights!
A-Div: Perfect Blend vs Ottawa Avengers...although the Avengers won by a very large score this game was a close and well played game. The difference maker was Avengers goalie Stephane Portelance and was just out of this world! He was on his game and more. The French Palace was buzzing over many of his saves and it is just wild that he did not get the shut-out! 11-1 Ottawa Avengers win.
A-Div: Vanier Voodoo vs Rebels...in the first period the Rebels held the balance of play and the scoring chance but Nathalie Girouard in the Voodoo net was very strong and kept the first period a scoreless tie heading into the second period. The second was all Voodoo and they took a 6-2 lead in the final period. The Rebels put on an impressive push but only could get within two goals. Vanier Voodoo win 7-5.
B-Div: The Flying Squirrels vs Garbage Men...the Squirrels took 2-0 and 4-0 period leads. In the 3rd the G-Men tried a new strategy and it worked well for their break-out and ball movement. They made it a game with a couple of quick strikes early in the period but could not get anymore by Kaptain Kennedy in the rodents net. Flying Squirrrels win 4-2.
B-Div: Newbies vs Net Masters... the Newbies built a 2-0 lead after one period and were up 3-1 in the second before the Net Masters roared back to tie it up 3-3 heading into the final period. The Net Masters took a 4-3 lead and then the Newbies tied it up. The game was back and forth and entertaining. A very just 4-4 tie.
B-Div: Pylons vs Cool Runnings...the teams were tied 2-2 after one period and this was a great game with quick pace. The Cool Runnings held the advantage in the 2nd period and were up 5-3 at the end of the 2nd. The big moment came when Big Ben of the Pylons arrived after running out of gas on the way to the game. Well be brought lots of gas in his tank and this rejuvenated the Pylons and they were just flying in the final period to take this game by a goal. A wildly entertaining match that a lot of fans watched and enjoyed in the French Palace. Pylons win 8-7.
B-Div: Iceland vs All Mesh...All Mesh won this one the backs of their passers. They owned possession a ton. But they still struggled as always with the never say die offence from the Iceland who kept making the game anything but a laugher. All Mesh goes through division once without a loss and get right back at it next Saturday. All Mesh win 15-7.
B-Div: Average Joes v Shootin Blanks...Shootin Blanks jumped out to a 3-1 and held the advantage 3-2 after one period. But then inexplicably they stopped their passing game and became individual players. This was the recipe for disaster as the Average Joes were able to stop those individual forays and capitalized on the easy turn-overs. A lesson for Shootin Blanks one would hope. Average Joes win 7-5.
Reminder no games Saturday, October 8 (Thanks Giving Long Weekend)....see everyone back in action Saturday, October 15

B-Div: Newbies vs Garbage Men...a very even game. Hard to get clear scoring chances as both teams focussed on team defence. G-Men win 6-3.
A-Div: All Mesh vs Ottawa Avengers...a very big game to end the Super Day! All Mesh are looking like the old days as their passing game is flourishing. The Avengers were up 4-3 heading into the final period.

The team wanted to win for her....so she went out and scored the winner in the final period! All Mesh win 8-5.
Super Saturday September 24 Highlights!
A-Div: Perfect Blend vs All Mesh: A shoot the lights out affair at the French Palace! The RedBlacks would have been hard pressed to win this one. The fans were shaking their heads at the amount of goals and finally with All Mesh up 11-10 in the final minutes they put it away after some scary moments with two late goals. All Mesh win 13-10.
A-Div: Ottawa Avengers vs Rebels: The Avengers just could not shake off the Rebels. The Avengers held leads throughout and looked like they had it in the 3rd period up a couple of goals.

B-Div: Net Masters vs The Flying Squirrels: The Net Masters scored some timely goals to keep close to the Squirrels who were on their game today. Some fine goaltending also kept this game getting into CFL territory. Finally the Squirrels scored some key 3rd period goals to pull away with insurance markers. Flying Squirrels win 9-6.
A-Div: Team Iceland vs Vanier Voodoo: A very low scoring match that is a bit of a surprise as the scoring chances were high. Both goalies were very hot as Terry Cleroux and Al Jolivet shared the honours of 1st stars of the game (along with being the past winners of the Tommy Raftis Award). It looked like Voodoo had the game up 4-3 in the final minute but Iceland tied it up with :26 seconds left. 4-4 tie.
B-Div: Cool Runnings vs Shootin Blanks: The new kids Shootin Blanks jumped out to a 2-0 lead and were perhaps a little too overconfident. Plus they thought the could compete with a shorter bench. The veteran presence on Cool Runnings and the large bench put to rest any thought they Winter defending champs would wilt from an early deficit. Cool Runnings took over the game and dominated. 15-6 win for Cool Runnings.
B-Div: Pylons vs Garbage Men: The G-Men and lady were into this match and the Pylons tried hard to kick-start themselves to match the intensity. But the G-Men were up 5-3 late in the game.

B-Div: Average Joes vs Newbies: Full benches on both sides. Big runs and tons of hustle. All in advance of the big Canada-Russia game! The game was scoreless for quite some time. But then the Joes began a slow move to win this game with a flurry of goals in the 2nd and 3rd periods. Stephanie Dagenais of the Newbies broke Guy Saumure's shut-out bid late in the game. Average Joes win 8-1.
Super Saturday September 17 Highlights!
A-Div: Rebels vs Perfect Blend: The Rebels had built an impressive 6-2 lead by the midway point of the 3rd period via the passing game. Then the Perfect Blend crew showed why they are on the look out for a 3rd straight championship. They used a North South route to the net and tied the game up at 6-6 before the heroics of Olivier Raymond with the game winner with 3-seconds remaining in the game. Perfect Blend with the comeback win 7-6.
A-Div: Ottawa Avengers vs Team Iceland: Already the Avengers are pegged as the favourites with their offence and top flight goaltender. They were caught off guard early by Iceland early before adapting and carrying the play later in the game for a hard earned victory. Ottawa Avengers win 9-5.
B-Div: Cool Runnings vs The Flying Squirrels. The Squirrels were close for the first period and into the second. But Cool Runnings passed their way to a win by slowly pulling away as the game wore on. Cool Runnings win 7-3.
B-Div: Shootin Blanks vs Garbage Men: The G-Men and ladies tried out a new goalie and had their first look at the new team. The Shootin Blanks look like they are for real as they moved the ball with authority for a surprisingly dominating win. Shootin Blanks win 12-3

Voodoo however would not go away with timely goals and great goaltending. All Mesh were up 5-2 late in the second only to see Voodoo make it 5-4 heading into the 3rd period. Finally a couple of late goals put it in the books. All Mesh wins 7-4.
B-Div: Average Joes vs Net Masters: This was a tight defensive game. Net Masters matched the Average Joes in the hustle factor, but the Average Joes had a slight edge in the creative playmaking. Only a couple of fortunate bounces that went the Average Joes was the difference. Average Joes win 4-2.
B-Div: Pylons vs Newbies: For the first two periods Craig Bowman was the big story. He had his Newbies up 2-1 heading to the final period. Last week the Newbies were in a tight game. This time the Pylons exploded for 5 important 3rd period goals as their passing game finally paid off. Pylons win 6-4.

A-Div: Team Iceland vs Perfect Blend: Two time defending champions Perfect Blend were in fine form and were given a stiff test from Iceland. Perfect Blend seemed to always be up a pair of goals as Iceland was forced to play catch-up and create more offence. Finally Perfect Blend prevailed 8-5.
A-Div: All Mesh vs Rebels: A Classic renewed once again. For awhile the Rebels played keep-away with some fine ball control, but then All Mesh did the same but even better!

There were tons of chances but no goals in the third period. All Mesh take it 8-5
B-Div: Newbies vs The Flying Squirrels: A defensive gem from start to end. This game was tied 2-2 late and then the Flying Squirrels score 2 to put it away for a very entertaining 4-2 win. Captain Kennedy in the Squirrels net was very got as was his counter-part in the Newbies net Craig Bowman.
A-Div: Vanier Voodoo vs Ottawa Avengers: Voodoo had flashes but could not solve the outstanding goaltending of the Avengers Stephane Portelance. Voodoo lost some defensive coverage as the Avengers moved the ball around all 4 players with creativity and authority. The Avengers look like the team to beat in a 9-2 win.
B-Div: Average Joes vs Pylons: The Pylons defending champs were on their passing game. Average Joes played it with their usual gusto. The Pylons pulled away in the third period for a 6-2 win.
B-Div: Cool Runnings vs Garbage Men: Cool Runnings were up 4-2 in the third period in a very well played game. The Garbage Men somehow pulled out a stunning comeback late in the third period including a last minute goal to win it. 5-4 for the G-Men.
B-Div: Net Masters vs Shootin Blanks: The new kids on the block had some bullets in that shootin. They get their first franchise win over the Net Masters who seemed to have a bit more speed in the line-up. 12-6 for Shootin Blanks.
