Bird-clipart-black-swan-12Updated standings ---> in Borschland Deep Dives =====>

It was an exciting week in Borschland hockey. Bevinlunz, the only undefeated and untied team in the league, drew 0-0 versus humble Sichebach, narrowing their lead at the top of the table to 1 point over resurgent Wrischer and Rjaward (4-1-0). Meanwhile, Meenesanne's 19-year old netminder Gareth Velnath unexpectedly traveled back to his native Zimroth without a timetable for his return. Meensanne had paid a 40,000 schilling transfer fee for the young phenom and was hoping for great things from him, but so far he has mightily disappointed.

0 Sichebach Bevinlunz 0: Sichebach achieved an amazing result versus previously undefeated and untied Bevinlunz, holding them to a shutout after giving up 5 and 6 goals respectively to Holtzlund and Meenesanne. Bevinlunz defensebear Christopher Sacrament scored a late goal that was waved off because of goaltender interference. After the game Sacrament said it was a just call. “Hats off to Sichebach. They protected their honey like good bees do.”

3 Tarlunz Matexipar 2: Tarlunz showed grit and determination in holding off their steel brethren on their home ice. The Ponders solved Matexipar’s Jaan “The Brick” Brichterglad for three goals in the first period, then held on for dear life behind the goaltending of Maxime ter Aarte. Veteran center Habel Baarda scored his first goal of the season for Tarlunz.

2 Te Staff Atterische 1: Te Staff stiffened their necks at Te Ringk against a previously undefeated Atterische side. Atterische’s Wiebe Minther was back in goal for the Peat Men and acquitted himself well. A desperate slap shot from Sherm Reinhardt with :36 left in the game managed to find net with wing Conraad Gleeph providing traffic in front.

1 Meensanne Rjaward 3: The Cattle Drivers won their fourth straight tilt, two of them away from home. Erick Ritsche, substitute goalie for the Zimrothian Gareth Velnath, held Rjaward to 3 goals on 36 total shots, but got no help from the anemic Meenesanne offense. The Drivers were led by Bearish forward Tulliver “The Wrecker” Rectorbear with a goal and an assist.

1 Sajbell Wrischer 3: Wrischer didn’t get a passel of goals this time, but their defense came up big versus a Sajbell team looking to please their fans. Sajbell have only 5 goals in their first 5 games.

4 Holtzlund Bjaward 4: Another high-scoring tie at home left the fans scratching their heads a bit. Bjaward was a formidable opponent, but they were hoping for better goaltending in Erichels. Dujtrick de Jong had two goals for the Axe Men, while Anvorian Pascal Nuessli had two assists for the Bulls.

3 Onatten Meechen 3: The Longshoremen might have hoped for more at home versus the Proud Lions, who were making their first trip away from Meechen this year, but in the end they needed to make up a 3-1 deficit to take away a point from this game. This was the first time Onatten had more than two goals in a game, and it was thanks to Laurens van Boom, their venerable center, who scored once and assisted on the other two markers.

2 Lojren Dohmatische 1: Te Lughaus eked out a win at home versus the traveling Swamp Hawks, who have not yet given up more than 3 goals in a game, but who have no wins to show for it. This time it was not Kai Ganesmund but the second line of Erick van Meettelin at center and Dirk Zuckermann at right wing who provided the offense for Lojren.
