"Upgrades" help Candyland to first win, 5-3.

The winless red team got one upgrade and one downgrade, but it really came down to who showed up on this cold and snowy day, and who did not show up.

We are not sure how Marc Teal is an upgrade, or who even made that trade, but however you cut the pork, the Candyland team picked up their first win of the season, 5-3 over the previously undefeated Life team.

DeFelippis had Life up 1-0, and everyone thought, 'here we go again'.

But first period goals by JA Ambrosino and journeyman Chris Caruso had Candyland with a rare lead at 2-1. In the 2nd it was the C player show, as Steve Iannetti and John Ambrosino both scored, which is like your dog bringing home a pay check.

"It's hard to lose a game when your two worst players both score," said Ed Coughlin.

Late goals in the 2nd pulled Life to within a goal at 4-3. Only one goal was scored in the third, and that was an open netter by Dustin Silk to seal the deal.

"I'm okay with losing, I'm just happy that I got Chiulli off this team and he won't be stealing any more goals from me," said Melito.
