A tough battle

Malys had a good victory this week which propelled them into a playoff spot.  A spot where I didn’t know if Maly’s would have at the beginning of the season in a much tough division.  Maly’s won a hard fought 5-3 victory on Wednesday night, and I had a pretty good game considering I let in a weak goal at the end to give them a chance to come back.  My butterfly just doesn’t seem to work as fast as I want it to sometimes.

Marketlab lost a tough hard fought battle tonight to the 1st place Puckups by a 4-3 final.  We had a 3-0 lead at the start, but the Puckups flexed their muscle in the 2nd and 3rd periods and came away with the win.  It was another loss we have had by only 1 goal, which has been the story so far this season for us.  Either we win decisively or we lose barely.  With 3 games to go, we can still finish as far up as 2nd which is what I am aiming for.

Overall, I was pleased with my performance this week.  I still have ice hockey next week, but I am confident that things are going to go well for us tomorrow.

In the meantime, I am just trying to stay positive.  Marketlab and Maly’s have legit shots to do something special come playoff time.  It just depends on how fortunate we are when the playoffs hit.  Tonight, Marketlab just couldn’t find the back of the net in the 2nd and 3rd periods.  They had great chances but just fired it wide, high of the net, and just missed on their chances.  I would much rather have them miss now than miss come Saturday playoffs.
