Champions Once More

It would be fair to say that 2 teams were triumphant last night – as the Dawgs captured the Thornhill Elite Gold Medal, and the BBC Old Boys captured the Thornhill Elite Bronze Medal….the other 2 teams were losers – so in a way, that makes the Old Boys second. Now, if we wanted to be fair, the old boys didn’t get to play the Dawgs in the playoffs – so it wouldn’t really be right to just call them ‘Champions’.

So by an interesting twist of events (and logic) – I am crowning the old boys as champions, or at the very least, tied for champions….call it ‘co-champions’.

The 5-3 victory ends the season, and kicks off the second season – no, not the playoffs, the summer – with many events and fundraising occasions before us, it will prove to be a busy and entertaining time off.

Thanks to all the coaches who came out, and to those who made it our for a quick beer post-game.

Watch here for news on the upcoming picture party (May 30th) and the Old Boys Volleyball Tournament (Jun 20).

Presidents…and run at the bronze

The Balmy Beach Old Boys dropped a tough 3-2 decision to the hands of the Chiefs last night,  in the first game of the sudden death playoffs.  For those of you who don’t know what Sudden death means, it meant sudden death to the dream of winning the playoffs, as they have been relegated to battle for second last place trophy – next week at Sir Honourable Clacky Clatworthy Arena, in Markham, Ontario.

A road-wearied crew just couldn’t find the momentum or energy after numerous players were playing through the very highly impairing injury of ‘alcohol withdrawl’…..that and the dynamic line of Juice, Tom and Jake were mysteriously disbanded after their success in Croatia – with coach Ed Caterer making Jake a healthy (?) scratch for the 24th time this year.

Hopefully the skill and energy will be returning from Europe shortly, as the players have been here 3 days already.

Game time next Tuesday – 9:30pm.
