From the desk of: THE COOLEST GUYS IN BROOKLYN
BROOKLYN AVIATORS: Kings County's Coolest Earn Four More Points After a Very Hard Fought FHL Week Three.
The latest game in the rivalry between the Whalers and Aviators goes to the team from Danbury two periods to one.
A late first period goal by Devin Guy which gave Danbury a 1-0 lead came on a power play after Casey Mignone was called for slashing.
Brooklyn carried the second period play with two goals. After just nineteen ticks off the clock, Anthony Iaquinto scored the tying goal. Twenty-one seconds later, Danbury got whistled for tripping putting Brooklyn on the power play. And one minute and thirteen seconds after Iaquinto's goal, Andrew Owsiak cashed in on the man-advantage at the 1:32 mark with the go ahead goal.
But Danbury had final say in the third period. Two unanswered goals; the first by Greg Holt, then a power play goal by Stephen Mallaro; finished off the A's 3-2, and ended Brooklyn's weekend on a sour note.
In the weekend that was, Brooklyn lost a home-ice back breaker in over-time last Thursday to the Vermont Wild in the first ever meeting between the two teams.
Goalie Peter Dundovich entered the Vermont game in relief of Thomas Lee. And Coach rewarded Peter's effort by giving him the rest of the weekend. Dundovich made both starts against Cape Cod and Danbury.
During the Friday Night Fight in Hyannis against the Cape Cod Blue Fins, a hockey game still managed to break out. And after all the pleasantries, punches, and penalties to both teams, Brooklyn still posted a 6-1 drubbing of the Fins.
Then of course, there was Saturday night's close game, but a loss none-the-less, against Danbury on our home-ice which didn't nearly resemble the whooping we put on the Whalers last weekend.
Brooklyn's portion of the FHL's Week Three schedule is done. The Aviators went 1-1-1 this weekend. They are now 3-2-3 for the season, good for twelve points and fourth place as of Sunday night. They are one of the top four teams in the standings with double digit points.
The A's have a quick turn around this week. For Week Four, Brooklyn takes on the Whalers in Danbury this Wednesday night. They get a day off and host Cape Cod on Friday. Then Saturday, the Danville Dashers, another of the FHL's expansion teams, will make their Flatbush Avenue debut.
Thursday - Vermont Has WILD Third Period
