On Thursday, the Balmy Beach Old Boys hosted a visiting Ostrava, Czech Republic team.
After 2 tight periods of hockey, the host Old Boys managed to break open with a 5 goal run – overcoming a 4-3 deficit, and winning 8-4.
Asked after the game for comment, Old Boy MVP Jeff Tomlinson (4 goals, 0 PIM) had this to say:
“I didn’t understand a word they said – so I just kept shooting the puck”.
Following the game, the visiting team were welcomed back at the BBC, for a post-game reception and game recap – although we have no idea what the translator was saying – so we can only assume they offered kind words.
