The Wags Bend 45 Degrees!

The high scoring GRZ Line (Granato, Reel and Zagorski) was again reduced to Russ ReelTommy Z is still on the DL. and Dan Granato was AOL again, so others had to step up again and they did.  Ed Waghorne was stellar again as he kicked out 26 shots to lead his team to a 14-11 win over  a tough 45s team that had several nice smelling females.  Hockey players are not used to going into the corners and wrestling with a perfumed opponent.  Dan Lopatka gave the Wags an early lead only 15 seconds into the game when he hit John Paolello with a break out pass then followed the speedy St. Rita grad into the zone where John gave him a return pass that he fired into the top of the net.  Less than a minute later, Pete Hornik made it 2-0 on a goal

Dan Lopatka picked up a Hat Trick while playing Defense.
