It is official: The Irwins Bike & Sports hockey team is in a major downward spiral. With only three wins and eleven regulation losses so far this season, we are firmly in last place. Sadly, two of those wins came over the also struggling Funky Pickle team. The Pickle gets the edge thanks to an overtime loss.
Tonight we face Yankee Doodle Dandy Tatoo for the fourth time. While we beat YDD the first time we faced them this season, we lost the other two meetings. Yet tonight could easily go either way. Both teams are fairly even on paper.
Pentico is expected to fill in for Daniels again tonight. He played strong against Alien last week. He looked comfortable compared to the recovering Daniels and made some strong saves. Overall, the team looked solid and determined to win. If not for a few unlucky bounces, we may have been in a position to squeak out a win.
Tonight's game will take loads of concentration and focus. I know that the entire team is itching to break our losing streak. A win over YDD could spark further victories...
