Someone tell the RIDICULOUSLY sharp trumpet player to STOP PLAYING!!!! Argh.

Anyone else surprised not to see Boyles in goal?

Also, if people want me to post a lot of updates I will. If anyone else is watching and wants to chat over AIM, let me know.

Does no one know how to pronounce Thunstrom? Seriously?

EDIT: Reshuka?!?! Come on, these arent difficult names.

And I'm half expecting Dominique "Tebow" to throw a hail mary or something.

GREAT defensive play to prevent a breakaway by Motherwell!

10-02-2009, 07:12 PM
1-0 Clarkson, 12:25 left in the first.

10-02-2009, 07:15 PM
10:48 left to go in the 1st, Shannon Webster to the box for tripping.

10-02-2009, 07:16 PM
PPG for Clarkson, 10:36 to go in the first. 2-0.

10-02-2009, 07:18 PM
Blake Bolden, 2 minutes for checking (I think). 9:13 left in the first.

10-02-2009, 07:20 PM
BC kills the penalty.

10-02-2009, 07:26 PM
Bolden with one of the most impressive breakaway savers I've seen :eek:

10-02-2009, 07:29 PM
3-0 Clarkson, 1:27 left in the 1st on a scrum-ish goal.

EDIT: It's under review... they have video review? Wow.

EDIT 2: It stands.

Andddd, that's the end of the period. Shots were 7-2, Clarkson. Analysis to come...

10-02-2009, 07:37 PM
Well, that was abysmal.

The period started much more even than it ended. After Clarkson scored their first goal (5 hole), BC really seemed to play scared. Clarkson's second goal game about 12 seconds into their power play on a really nice couple of passes. The third goal was a scrummy thing that sneaked in before the net came off.

In all, Clarkson dominated the end of the period. BC's offensive attack was nonexistent. We had one shot with a reasonable chance of going in and one without much on it. We were set up in Clarkson's end for maybe 30 seconds of the period, total.

The lone bright spots in the period were Motherwell and Bolden each breaking up a potential breakaway by swatting the puck away while behind the skater and not drawing a penalty.

I hate to say it, but they look EXACTLY the way they played the last time they were without Schaus, against Dartmouth last year. Literally NO offensive threat, because they're playing scared. I don't know if that's their mentality or not, but that's what it looks like.

My hope is that they are rusty, since they haven't played any exhibition games or anything, and since their ice time was probably more limited than they would have liked, with Conte not having the ice down.

If there were ever a situation where they would get better as the game went on, this would hopefully be it.

Also, Clarkson's band is horrendous. For God's sake. Is that an ECAC thing?

This team is extremely young... some hard times early in the season, especially against a strong opponent, are to be expected.

Especially with very little ice time on a rink down the street and with no exhibition game.

Corinne Boyles in goal for the 2nd period.

10-02-2009, 07:50 PM
And with that, BC gets two shots in the first 24 seconds with some good pressure.

Much, much better start to the period through the first 2 minutes.

10-02-2009, 07:57 PM
2:00 on Bolden for checking, 15:05 left in the 2nd.

10-02-2009, 08:01 PM
Penalty killed.

10-02-2009, 08:03 PM
So, somehow Clarkson ended up with a 2-on-0 and was DENIED by Boyles.

Much more concerning is the fact that we gave up a 2-on-0.

11:40 left in the 2nd.
