Old Milwaukee rolls over Rolling Rock, 6-3.

The middle of the pack teams played game one on the south rink.

It was a mild, but humid day, and each team had nearly a full compliment of players. A three goal third period was the difference, as OM skated away with the win.

The game started with a hip check from Tony Onello, and that led to the first goal as JA Ambrosino scored on the PP.

Two minutes later Phatt Deskin found the net thanks to Bob Powell and it was tied at 1-1. But before we could even log in that goal, Jimmy D. went in on a slippery breakaway, and buried it to get red the lead back.

Mike Raimo found a new gear that he brought to the game, that now gave him Neutral, to go along with Park and Reverse.

Goalie Tom Fuji had trouble following the puck, especially when it was shot at him.

Meanwhile, Jon Morin was a defensive beast. Blocking shots and taking away passing lanes. They only guy he couldn't stop was Whittemore, see below.

In the second Phil Andrusin scored for red to make it 3-1, then Jeff Whittemore also scored for red, but into his own net. Wilkinson got credit for it. So it was 3-2 headed into the third and still a game.

Then goals just 44 seconds apart by JA and Jon Morin put this thing away. Deskin tallied his second to make it 5-3, but an uncovered Joe Surette blasted one of his several head high slapshots at Fuji into the net with 4:55 to play for the 6-3 final.
