Polk Check Division March 5 Highlights:

Wild Dawgs vs Tsunamis...the Dawgs were up 3-2 after one and by the mid-point of the 2nd it was 7-2, but the Wave would not give up and by the end of the period it was 9-6 Wild Dawgs. Both teams exploded for 5 goals each in the 3rd. Wild Dawgs win 14-11.

Dekes of Hazzard vs Polk's Heroes...Dan Bujolds had a season changing game in the nets last night in the Sunday league for the Dekes and carried his strong play into this one. With the Dekes up 4-3 in the 3rd and the game in doubt as the Heroes poured it on, he shut the door while the Dekes pulled away late with 3 goals. Dekes of Hazzard win 7-3.

Polk Check Division February 26 Highlights:

Wild Dawgs vs Dekes of Hazzard...8-8 tie

Tsunamis vs Polk's Heroes...5-2 Tsunamis

Polk Check Division February 12 Highlights:

Wild Dawgs vs Polk's Heroes....Dawgs goalie Marty Myre was under the weather but did not under perform! He backstopped the Dawgs to victory to be sure in this tight game. The Heroes scored the only goal of the opening period while the Dawgs scored the only goal in the middle period to head into the final period knotted up 1-1 in an interesting tussle. Finally the Dawgs broke free and the Heroes were befallen by a key injury to an offensive cog and fell short. Wild Dawgs win 6-3.

Tsunamis vs Dekes of Hazzard...Al Jolivet played the first game for the Heroes then came into this one simply robbed the Dekes of at least a point. One save was worth the price of admission for the French Palace crowd. Another game that featured two low scoring periods followed by an explosion of goals. 1-0 for the Dekes after one and then 2-1 for the Wave after two. At 5-4 for the Wave in the final minute the Wave scored an empty netter but the Dekes quickly closed to within one before coming agonizingly close in the closing seconds to tying it up. Unsure of the tech difficulties for not getting most of this game Live Streamed for review. Tsunamis win 6-5.

Polk Check Division February 5 Highlights:

Tsunamis vs Wild Dawgs...Marty Myre was back none worse for wear from a groin pull last week. He played well although his team played a picture perfect game in the 1st period for a 3-0 lead. In the 2nd while the Dawgs debated penalty shot prowess, the Wave snuck back into it by scoring the only two goals of the period. In the 3rd it went 4-2 and 4-3...the Wave had chances but could not close the gap. Wild Dawgs win 4-3.

Polk's Heroes vs Dekes of Hazzard...the Dekes were excited to play but Terry Cleroux was a true hero and was a difference maker. the Heroes had the offence clicking in the 3rd period to pull away after building 2-0 and 4-1 period break leads. Polk's Heroes win 8-4.

Polk Check Division January 29 Highlights:

Polk's Heroes vs Tsunamis...with rumours abound once more for a name change for our Heroes, the fan base was in an uproar as they showed their love for Polk's legacy. As well an OBBHA reporter under-covered some possible dissension on the team itself over the potential of a name change. The game itself took over from this chat in the sitting-room only crowd at the french Palace. A Goalie battle took over the buzz in the seats. Polk's Heroes took a 2-0 lead in the 1st. The Wave tied it up 2-2 in the 2nd. Save after save at both ends became the theme as Terry Cleroux and Dave Holt put on a show. Check out pic of the Waves Holt in the Tweet on the right side of this page/site. This stayed 2-2 until the last very wild 90 seconds. It featured a missed penalty by the Heroes, a lucky deflection Heroes goal for a 3-2 lead, a penalty shot goal for the Wave to make it 3-3 and finally a beautiful winner for the Wave! Whew!! Thanks for the entertainment boys!!! Tsunamis win 4-3.

Dekes of Hazzard vs Wild Dawgs...this was about goaltending too. In the first the teams ended up 2-2. in the 2nd the Wild Dawgs won the period 4-0 for a 6-2 lead, but Marty Myre in the Dawgs net stole the show and the game from the Dekes as they fired many shots of high quality that were repeatedly denied. A 1-1 3rd gave the Dawgs a solid team win. Wild Dawgs win 7-3.

Polk Check Division January 22 Highlights:

Dekes of Hazzard vs Tsunamis...the Dekes roared out to a 3-0 lead as the Wave came in a little late for the party. In the 2nd the Wave came back to close it to 4-2 and scored the only goal of the 3rd to close to within one goal. The Dekes had so many chances but Big Dave in the Wave net was a big factor keeping his team in it. Dekes of Hazzard win 4-3

Polk's Heroes vs Wild Dawgs...the Dawgs held 2-1 and 6-3 period break leads. The big story was how many blocked shots the Dawgs had! This kept the Heroes offence off kilter to be sure. Marty in the Dawgs net was very good on this freezing rain night as he froze out any comeback bid. Rumour has it the Polk's Heroes are fanning the flames for a name change for the French Palace faithful. Wild Dawgs win 7-3.

Polk Check Division January 15 Highlights:

Wild Dawgs vs evenly played as it gets. Goaltenders Travis and Marty were on their respective games. The video on the live streaming will tell the story and in the first period there was a great glove grab by Marty that had the fans roaring with approval. The Dawgs were up 1-0 at the first period break. In the 2nd the Wave broke through for 3 goals and played great D in front of a confident Travis Guay for a 3-1 lead heading into the 3rd period. in the final period the teams threw caution to the wind a plethora of goals occurred.The Wave won the 3rd 5-4 for the win. Tsunamis win 8-5.

Dekes of Hazzard vs Polk's looked like the Heroes were going to win this game in the early stages of the game as they came out flying and looking good. They held a 3-2 lead but could have been up more at the end of the 1st. in the 2nd the Dekes settled down for a 5-4 lead. Then the Dekes slowly took over in the 3rd for a slow death grip on the win. Dekes of Hazzard win 8-5.

For the first game of the Winter Session on Monday, January 8th, rumours were abound that two more teams were in the Wings trying to build and join the division! However the other teams started the first games in earnest!!

Tsunamis vs Polk's Heroes...the Heroes revamped line-up took only a few shifts to show some impressive chemistry! 2-2 after one period and then the Heroes won the 2nd period 2-0 as well as the 3rd for a big first win! Polk's Heroes win 6-2.

Wild Dawgs vs Dekes of Hazzard... this was probably the best game the Dekes have played on any given Monday nighter. after a scoreless first period where the goalies mad it clear that this would be their night, the Dekes won the 2nd period 3-2. The well played game continued to be a tight affair, but the Dekes were able to play great ball control to protect their lead for the win. Dekes of Hazzared win 5-3.
