Losing Skid Ends

The Renegades played a hockey game on July 4th against a team called Riverfolk.  We had our full roster out for this one, and hoped to turn around our losing streak following the two lop-sided defeats last week.  Riverfolk quickly jumped out to a 2-0 lead, and it was looking like deja vue all over again...  We got one back and then the game became close, with goals traded back and forth.  Early in the third period we managed to tie the game 3-3.  Then they scored a short handed goal to take the lead.  One of their players drew a double minor penalty with only a few minutes left in the game.  I called a time out with 1:36 left on the clock and we put our best five players out on the ice.  We were ready to pull our goalie for an extra attacker, if needed.  But the guys scored with just over a minute on the clock to tie the game.  It went to a shootout and our goalie Steve stoned all three of their shooters, while we scored on one of our first two shots to win the game.  Sure feels good to put the losing skid to an end and see a strong team effort from our guys on the rebound.
