Wings of Steel - Adult Team

Wings Adult team wins very first game
Written by Mike Costantino

BuddhaMan gave the Wings a 1-0 lead early in the first period scoring down low. The Kodiaks tied the game in the second period, before Justin put the Wings ahead for good, scoring his first goal in some time. Justin joined us after spending his playing time as a goalie with the Delaware Sled Snipers team.

Also joining the Wings is Mike Popovich, also from the Sled Snipers team, who had a strong debut as well. Leading just 2-1 entering the third period the game was still in the balance when Buddha scored with just over four minutes left in the game. Good solid defense by Freight Train Tursi and Yo Bro Ismael, along with newcomers Bill Kile, Scott Roman and Scott Sheldrick helped keep the Kodiaks’ off the board.

Our second game was against the Bennett Blazers. It was unsettling that it appeared Bennett skated at least 4 A level players and despite the lopsided level of play and scoring against a stacked team it did not take away our spirit. Great start to the season! Nice job by Coach Sullivan in his first game behind the bench with Ernie Jewell assisting . GO WINGS!
