The Streak Ends

The losing streak finally came to an end on Saturday afternoon.  The Renegades faced off against Pentastar.  They only had 10 players while we had 14.  It was a close game, tied 3-3 at the end of the second.  We managed to outplay them in the third period, and hung on for a hard fought 6-4 victory.  The official shot count was 27-21 for us but it seemed like there were a lot more shots than that.  Nice to finally put our losing skid to and end and hopefully start a winning streak.  Maybe all the superstition payed off so I can't change anything moving forward.  Our next game is at the old Northlands Coliseum.  The Oilers played here for many years but with the opening of the new Rogers Place Arena in downtown Edmonton last year, this rink now sits largely unused.  Our beer league has been playing a bunch of games there but the City has now decided to close it at then end of 2017, and is considering demolition.  This will be our last game here....
