and cruised out to a 9-2 victory! Taking sole possession of first
place in the STRONG B, eight different skaters would hit
the back of the net for Brown Street as Anthony Galeano
lead the serge with a two goal three point night. Pitbulls
would earn four points in week six as last Wednesday night
team Captain Genero Soriano was good for a hat trick in the 7-3
winner. The two wins in week 6 move the Pitbulls to 3-1
on the season. At the 6:37 mark of the second period Knights
of Coloumbus had a comfortable 5-0 lead. Flash forward to
6:43 left in the contest the score read 5-4. But that's how this
track meet would end as the Knights of Columbus would hold
on for a 5-4 win. Mike Millazo was good for two in the win as
Alex Kelly netted two in the loss. Beach Rats and Wolf
Pack were also involved in a tight game in the night cap as
the Beach Rats would edge out of this one with a 5-4 victor.
Mike McGrath has been on a scoring spree of late as he was good
for a trick and two assists in the win as the five point night
puts him in a tie for the scoring title with Rob Alibrandi. Moving
along to Thursday night draft the Bay Brewery would put
up their best game of their seasonal. Carl Murraco has been back
but last game he arrived! Putting together a five goal six point
night Carl dominated this one in the Brews 9-3 stomp out.
The draft race has been tight but one team has been strong all
season and now sit on top of the pack! The Hansons lead
by the leagues new leading scorer in Chris Brown. Chris put home
two and added three assists as Stephan Renner tallied his tenth
goal of the season. Hansons in a 6-4 tilt. The rest of
the night was a wash as the rain hit late. Those games will be
made up by season's end. All pages updated, Week 7 below!
10/4/17 TEAM 40 and BROWN Street set Up a Collide, Astoria
are still Favorites and Pitbulls Shine in new Threads! Team 40's
Bob Munday made is 2017 fall debut last night with a bang
hitting the back of the net three times for the trick and soaring
his squad out to a 3-0 start! James Amsterdam also made is
Kings Bay Hockey debut in a Team 40 uniform netting
a goal and an assist in a 4-2 win. Brown Street didn't
hold back and unleashed the weaponry hitting the target eight
times in triumph! E. Sosnoski and Ryan Cheng both had a
two goal night earning stars of the contest. Astoria locked
down and their hustle is crazy! Rob Alibrandi lead the charge
with a two point night, goal and an assist as M. Carpanini and
Meridino also hit the mesh in a 3-0 win as BJ Florio shinned between
the pipes posting a zero. The Pitbulls unleashed a furious
attack that would raise a few eyebrows in the Bay. Danny Balsamo
was hungry hitting the back of the net for a trick while Nicky
Manfredini hooked up three tallies in the win. Standings updated,
stats over the weekend as we have another night of STRONG B
in the Bay tonight!
9/31/17 Brown Street turn it Up, The Buzz Debut, Knights of
Columbus Thrive and Team 40 in a Shoot Session! Brown Street would
connect on a bomb pass to Frank Alliago for a break away tally
with just :39 ticks left in the middle session breaking a 1-1
knot. It would be all Brown Street in the third posting
four unanswered in a 6-1 finish! Knights of Columbus would
even their record at 1-1, also posting a six goal night in a 6-3
win. Dennis Millazo lead with a two goal night as four different
Knights also hit the back of the net in triumph! The
Buzz set off their season posting two in the first, one in
the second and another two in the third. Three of the five goals
scored were compliments of the red hot Dominick DeMarco! Goals
against would read 0-0-1! Mike Szendry bid for a shut out was
ruined by a late Mike Daskalakas goal in the 5-1 winner! Last
season Team 40 had problems putting up goals but with a
few key additions this season that don't seem to be the case.
Matt Galeano was good for a two goal night as KC Krober dished
off two. But it was Mike Chindemi's lone shoot out goal that was
good for the extra point in the standings for Team 40!
LIT AF with a STRONG Look, ALL IN and Hansons Storm as Bull Dogs
look to the A Division! Lit AF has a fast defense and a one
two punch of Kyle Goonan and Mike McGrath that has been a force
of late. Kyle don't pass much but he knows how to hit the back
of the net as he put up goals eight, nine and ten in the contest
in a 4-1 LIT AF win! Quick notable mention goalie Ryan
Palmer put up a hell of a game in his rookie season between the
pipes only letting by one while making many big saves through
out the battle. Feeding off of last seasons championship win All
In seems like they are getting better every week. Posting
a ten spot stomp All In's Dominick DeMarco has continued
to light the lamp posting back to back hat tricks for his club.
At one point in this game All In put up nine unanswered
as they sit in first place along side the Hansons who matched
their eight unanswered with nine unanswered in their meet and
greet! The Hansons Stephan Renna and Anthony Galeano both
combined for a seven goal night as Stephan netted goals five through
nine on the season as AG was good for the rabbit out the hat!
Don't have much to say about the Bull Dogs win as i'm still
smh at their captains stunt. All pages Updated except Knights
vs TNT stats need to be addded, Week 6 moves to the
home page. Two nights of STRONG B this week!
9/23/17 Zorros Back on Track, All In Drop Heavy, Homies Sting
Three and Sunday Sauce get to even! After four weeks of play
in Draft League play we have four teams tied for first place all
with 3-1 records! Games have been intense as so was the opening
game last Thursday night between the Bull Dogs and Zorros.
The Bull Dogs jumped out to a 4-1 lead off of a John Carey
hat-trick and assist early in the middle session but Jesse's Zorros
would fight back! Tying the game by periods end the game winner
would come off Mike Gambino's stick with just 2:30 left in the
game. Mike Gambino was good for a four point night as he currently
leads the league in points with eighteen! The Bay Brewery
were in disarray with both their top defenseman out of the line
up and All In made them pay. Scotching the mesh for eleven
lamp lights, Anthony DeMarco was fire putting up a four goal six
point night in the 11-4 stomp out. The Homies took advantage
of the Chris Brownless Hansons and went to work early.
Posting a 3-1 lead after one they carried out a 7-3 game plan.
Jon Hennessy and Pete Teserio both finished with a hat-trick in
the win. Tied at two with under nine minutes to play Sunday
Sauce's team leader in points James Carricato would break
the lock with 6:46 to go! Robbie Marino would add some insurance
and the Sauce would walk out of the Bay with a 4-2
winner while evening up their record at 2-2. Like I said earlier
in the write up the draft games have been intense early in the
season as we have a four way tie for first between the Homies,
Hansons Zorros and All In. Things will get more interesting
as the season moves along! All pages updated including standings,
league leader and team pages! And with all that said Week 5
9/16/17 Pitbulls Stack Well Beach Rats make Waves, Astoria
Pull away and Team 40 on the Grind! All In attack the Third, Homies
with an Effort, Lit AF Win and Hansons Bring the Pain! The
STRONG B Division kicked off last Tuesday night and teams
came heavy! The defending champion Pitbulls set off the
night boasting a roster screaming to repeat! They would trail
by a goal heading into the final session then bombed the third.
Netting four unanswered newly recruited dogs Danny Balsamo and
Chris Ryan both had a two goal night in the title defending opener.
The Beach Rats poured it on with big night's out of Mike
McGrath and Basardo. The duo both put up a hat trick in their
convincing opening night win. A heavy weight bout between Astoria
and Brown Street saw a 4-4 knot heading into the final
session but a 2-0 win in the third period saw Astoria walk
away with a 6-4 triumph. Rob Alibrandi was all business in this
one having something to do with every Astoria goal hitting
the back of the net five times while dishing off one! First game
out of retirement Mike Chindemi was good for a three point night
with two goals and an assist as Team 40 lashed out with
a 4-0 win. Last Thursday was Draft night in the Bay and
All IN's Matt Galeano was back in the line up and doused
the mesh with a trick. The leagues so called best one two punch
hooked up twice in the 6-3 win. The Zorros jumped out the
gate 2-0 but the Homies of Harambe were able to slow them
down. They lead in this one as much as four goals and downed the
Zorro with an 8-6 win. Jonathan Hennessy tallied up four
while Mike Gillispie rang up two in the Homies win. Lit
AF and Bay Brewery bumped heads and the game saw the
return of Carl Muraco to the Bay. Fresh off an undisclosed injury
Carl was able net a goal and an assist in the Brew loss.
As for the speedy Lit AF Kyle Goonan was a steam roller
as the power forward had a five goal night while also putting
up a natural hat trick in the 7-6 OT Shoot Out win! Chris Brown
would put up his most serious game this season for the Hansons
as he would have something do with six of his teams seven goals
for. Chris was good for three goals and three assists as the Hansons
glided out with a 7-3 win. All Draft and SB pages updated.
Updated standings here! And the
Full season schedule has been posted!
9/9/9/17 Hansons and Zorros Jump out with Two, Homies Control
and All In for a Win! Two first period Chris Brown goals would
push the Hansons out of the struggle in a 3-2 final and
a 2-0 start out of the gate. Both goalies were good in this one
as Josh Gilbert and Frank Sciortino get the nods for stars of
the game in the low scoring draft battle. Jesse Hetzler's Zorros
look to be a draft power house just two games in putting up seventeen
goals for. The one two punch of Thomas Votto and Mike Gambino
have been nothing short of excellent as the duo already have a
combined twenty points on the season. Last Thursday's game the
Zorros would trail by a goal heading into the final session
and win the final period 2-0 skating away with a 7-6 win and also
jumping out to a 2-0 start. Even though the final score read 4-2
the Harambe's Homies controlled most of this game. Sammy
Pontillo posted two goals as Hennessy and P. Teserio followed
up with a tally. All In get in the win column getting scoring
from five different skaters. DeMarco, Buckman, Barcavage, Yuspa
and Risatano all chimed in pulling away with a 6-4 win. All pages
updated and a Week 3 schedule posted! 5 on 5 Hockey
is Back this Week!
9/3/17 The Fall Draft Season Set off in the Bay and the Hansons
Flexed Youth, Bull Dogs Held On, Sunday Sauce Broke Out and Zorros
Stomped hard! The Hansons would net the first four
goals of the contest and march out of the season opener with a
4-1 win! Rookie Stephan Renna shined in his Kings Bay Hockey
debut posting a hat-trick in the win! Could Stephan be the steal
of the draft? The Bull Dogs would scorch the the middle
session for five and leave the second with a commanding 5-1 lead.
Lit AF wasn't done in yet netting the next three unanswered
for a one goal game but that's as close as they would get in a
5-4 final score. John Carey was good for a two goal night for
the B. Dogs as Matt Dillberti put up two darts for Lit
AF. Team Captain of the Sunday Sauce Ralph Maurchi
was quick to trade picks to get his main man back in Anthony Alliago
and it paid off nicely in the season opener. Ant put a natural
hat-trick on the way to a 5-3 Sauce win! The Zorros
top four look like this Votto, Gambino, Manson and Morozov! They
all were in the line up last Thursday and the squad put up ten!
Votto and Gambino lead the way with a five and six point night
as the duo are the first to make the league leaders page! Opening
night success in the Bay as the Fall draft looks to be a good
one! For the coming week we will be playing only this Thursday
with the holiday week and an all draft night again. The STRONG
division will start up the following Tuesday. We are nine teams
strong and will be setting up the division in a new format. You

8/12/17 All In For Another Championship Win! With the
clock dead locked at four All In team Captain Joey Risatano
would take a Matt Galeano feed and squeeze it through the pads
of the goal keep finding the back of the net for a 5-4 lead that
would hold up to be the game winner with just 6:38 remaining.
The final game was a good one as the Bay Brewery would
take a 3-1 lead into the middle session but the game tone would
be changed in the beginning of the second period as All In
netted two goals in just 1:42 in a span of just sixty four seconds
apart and a 3-3 knot. The two goals came of Risatano's and Galeano's
sick as the duo hooked up three times in the contest. The two
teams would trade goals the rest of period two for the four four
lock down brining us to the heroics in the third period that would
capture the Kings Bay Cup! All In finished in first
place during the regular season and finished on top in the end.
Having the number one goalie in Mike Szendry and the leagues top
scorer Matthew Galeano these guys were tuff to beat not to mention
the tuff core in Zadvaydas, Gillisipi, Yuspa, Barcavge and Stachell
that all made this championship win a reality. Congratulations
to the full All In Crew! With another great season in the books
and new one is upon us! NEW SEASON UPDATE!! The new
Draft season season will kick off Thursday August 31st

forward to having a great season with you. 8/5/17 ALL IN Fight
Back force a Final Game Three! After not making the score
sheet in game one All In's Matt Galeano would post a hat-trick
and carry his team to a final game three. All In would
take a 3-1 lead into the final session as the Bay Brewery
would get back within one with five minutes to play but
Mike Szendry would hold the fort down the rest of the
way an empty net goal added and a Game 7 date is set in stone!
Winner takes all This Tuesday night in the Bay!
8/2/17 CHAMPIONS! PITBULLS TAKE THE CUP and Bay Brewery Storm
Game One of the Draft League Finals! In a dead lock battle
tied at one late into the final session Sammy Pontillo would pounce
on a rebound and slam home the game winning goal with just 5:06
remaining to capture the Kings Bay Cup Crown! The
game set off with a Brian Murray tally just 3:01 in and 1-0 Buzz
lead but Anthony Alliago would get the Pitbulls on the
board with just over a minute to play in the opening period to
lock us at one. A hard back and forth battle from both clubs and
the second period would go score less taking us into the final
session of play and finally leading us to the goal of the game
that would capture the Cup. The Pontillo goal sent the crowd into
a frenzy as the roar shook the Bay! The Pitbulls would
add a empty net goal as the Buzz would press for the equalizer,
the final horn blew and the Pitbulls would be the KINGS
BAY CUP CHAMPIONS. Hats off the The Buzz who played
a great series as this series was very close and a good one that
will be remembered! The Bay Brewery whirl wind in game
one and close it out with a 5-1 final score. Mike Gambino would
get the Brew on the board in the first with a break away
back hand tally for a 1-0 lead at tick of 9:48. Ian Stachel would
even things up in period two at the 8:51 mark for a 1-1 tie and
the lone goal scored for All In. But then the Bay Brewery
would erupt netting three goals in a span of just 4:36 taking
a 4-1 lead into the final session. Jason Schector would add his
second goal of the night and the Bay Brewery would soon
take down game one of the Draft League finals! Game two is this
Thursday night at 8:00, the Kings Bay Cup will be in the
7/12/17 Pitbulls Handle Game One and ALL In Move to the Draft
League Finals! The Pitbulls Anthony Doran tallied up early
in the third and it would break the 2-2 knot that held up to be
the game winner as the Pitbulls would move on with a 4-2
winner. The opening game was good as Jonathan Hennesey would open
the scoring just 4:06 in as the Buzz would even things
up minutes later for a 1-1 knot after one. A Pete Teserio goal
in the middle session would put the Pitbulls up 2-1 but
his second of the night would seal the deal in a 4-2 final. The
Pitbulls march on in game one and are on the verge of a
Kings Bay Cup title with one more win! But Joey Risatano's
bunch will stand in the way as Joey still claims his squad will
take the Bay! Game two, not sure when but stay posted as a date
will be posted shortly.. They claim this Thursday is no good.....
All In dominated play into the Draft League Finals
with a 7-2 oust! All IN's Joe Barker would put up a goal
and two assists as his squad would run up a 7-2 final and a date
into the draft league finals! The Draft League Finals are
now set... Bay Brewery will meet those All In kids
in a best of three series for the right to lift load Kings
Bay! The series should kick off this Thursday night in the
Bay! Stay fine tuned!!! Updated playoff stats soon......
7/7/17 The Pitbulls and The Buzz on a Crash Course to the
KINGS BAY CUP FINALS! The Pitbulls and the Buzz
will meet in game one of the KINGS BAY CUP FINALS next
Tuesday night. Last night the Pitbulls would find themselves
in a 1-0 hole just six minutes in but it would soon be the last
time they would trail all night. Pete Teserio would get the Pitbulls
on the board just 1:36 later with a top shelf snipe in the back
a forth battle as period one would soon end knotted at one. Flash
fwd to just over the mid-way point of the game Sam Pontillo would
make the play of the night driving to the net hard and making
a back hand pass to an open Jonathan Hennessy slamming the biscuit
into an open cage for their first lead as they would take that
2-1 lead into the final session. Sammy would stay hot for the
Pitbulls darting home a wrist shot for a dominating 3-1 lead
early in the third and then seal the deal for a Pitbulls birth
into the Kings Bay Cup finals as he would sail home the
final goal of the game into the empty net to complete the victory.
The Pitbulls will now meet The Buzz who were involved
in one of the longest games ever just a prior week before. The
defending Champions Astoria would jump out to a 2-0 lead
after one but the Buzz would fight back for two goals in
the middle session off the sticks of Alex Kelly and Frank Millazo.
Jason Merindino would put Astoria back up 3-2 early in
the third and it looked like Astoria would be heading back
to the finals again. But Alex Kelly would make sure that wouldn't
happen as he would even the game a three with just 4:24 remaining
sending the game into overtime! First overtime session, No Goals
scored. Second overtime session, No goals scored. And four minutes
and and seven seconds into the third overtime it would be Ryan
Zillini sending the Buzz into the Kings Bay Cup finals.
And now the table is set The Buzz vs The Pitbulls
for the right to lift the Kings Bay Cup! Tuesday night
in the Bay it is on! All playoff stats updated on team pages.
6/25/17 Bay Brewery Storm to the DRAFT LEAGUE FINALS! PLAYOFF
SCHEDULE POSTED. Tom Galigan would take the opening puck drop
into his own hands scoring just fifty two tics in putting up a
hat-trick in the first period of play as the Brew Crew would
leave the first fifteen up 4-0. From their on in the Speedy
Sunday Saucers would give everything they got but the Brew
Crew were in defense mode securing the lead and slowing them
down. Sunday Saucers would net their first goal with 10:05
left in the final period to cut the lead to three but that's all
Frank Pizza Boy would let by his goal line as the final score
said 4-1. Bay Brewery head to finals with a stingy defense
as they gave up just three goals in their first two playoff games
as it's been an all out team commitment to get the job done!
6/24/17 The Buzz Get Serious, Astoria Jumps Out Hold On and
TNT in a slow burn! Still fresh in their minds after last
season's first round check out the Buzz would make sure
history would not repeat itself. Facing off again with Team
40 in round one of the Kings Bay Hockey Playoffs, The Buzz
would capitlize off of Team 40 turn overs. First up
would be Robbie Marino hitting the back of the net with just 1:52
left in the first period of play for a 1-0 all we would need lead.
Joe Passarella would net back to back goals for the Buzz
as they would finish off a dominating 4-0 win and a ticket into
the semi-finals. And oh yeah, Mr. Mike Sezendry with another shut-out
in the win. Defending a KB CUP Astoria would jump out to
a 3-0 lead early in the final session off of goals from Koysta
Kasimis, Mike Carpanini and Mike Gillespi. But the three goal
lead would soon be one as the Beach Rats would net two
in a four minute span to make for a one goal game with 6:58 remaining.
BJ Florio and the Astoria camp would hold the fort down
the rest of the way as the Queens kids would rise to occasion
once again and set a date with the Buzz in a semi-finals
match up. TNT and the Wolf Pack would bump heads
in a low scoring fight as Ray Recco's lone first period goal would
be the only goal scored till an empty net was found by Christopher
Fats and a 2-0 final stamp on a TNT win. The Strong
B Semi-Finals of the bay are set! The Pitbulls will
see TNT as Astoria will face The Buzz.
6/24/17 Final STONG B STATS FINALLY POSTED! While
sharing last season's scoring title Jonathan Hennessy would make
sure this season's highest scorer would be his own! Pulling away
at the end of the season with some big games John finished with
a twenty two point season, twelve goals and two assists. The
Buzz's Mike Szendry would post his second GAA award title
finishing with a stunning 1.11 G.A.A. with six shut outs. Off
the top of my head i'll have to say this is the best ever. A look
into archives will have to be checked as J. Chici had a season
similar to this many years ago. Congradulations to both John and
Mike with the awards.
6/21/17 All In and Sunday Sauce do what they were supposed
to do as the Bay Brewery and Lit AF come out of the Trenches!
After trailing 1-0 after one the constant pressure and assault
would collapse the Bull Dog wall and the Sunday Sauce
would net five unanswered goals for a dominating 5-1 lead
and a well schemed 6-3 final. Speed and hustle would put a stamp
on this one as the one two punch of Alliagio and Carey proved
to be too much as the duo combined for a five point night. The
crash coarse is still on as All In went in for the slow
kill with the score tied at one all the way up to the 6:41 mark
of the middle session and then every check of the score board
there after would see All In add another with five unanswered.
Joey Risatano claims him and Matt Galeano are the best one two
punch in the league as he might be right as both All Iners
finished with a trick and a 7-3 final score. The Bay Brewery
would be trail two zip just 8:05 in and it would seem like it
would be a long night for the Brew Crew. But after a late
first period goal to get back within one the Bay Brewery
would not give up a goal the rest of the way thanks to the likes
of netminder Joseph Chici! Two goals from Tom Galligan and a trick
off the stick of Alex Kelly would etch victory in stone and a
6-2 final for the Brew! And the nod for the game of the
night would go to Lit AF and the Hansons. If you
happened to read my preview I said the Hansons were a scary
bunch but Lit AF would counter with the likes of Steve
Kelly and Aarron Gainley. The counter was in full force as Steven
Kelly's third of the night for the for the trick would of made
your jaw drop and a two goal lead for Lit AF with just
2:42 left in regulation. Final score Lit AF 5 Hansons 3 and
a beautiful night of Hockey in the Bay! The Final four
is set! All In vs Lit AF and The Sunday Sauce vs
Bay Brewery! Playoff stats updated on team pages as i'm finally
signing off from the Commissioner you love to hate!
6/18/17 All In Secure the Division, Sunday Sauce lock up the
Second Seed, A Double SHUT OUT IN THE BAY and TEAM 40 will meet
them again! All In would lock down the division with a 9-1
record and a dominating season finale assault! Displaying what's
ahead in the draft playoffs Joey Risatano's first two round picks
were on display. Matt Galeano would stamp down yet another scoring
title with a seven point night having something to do with seven
of the eight scored as goal keep Mike Szendry's Draft League
debut would net him the GAA award with a 2.75. Last Thursday
he would only let by one on his teams way to the president's trophy
winner. Could they be on a crash coarse to the finals against
Sunday Sauce? Sunday Sauce also dominated their
last game of the season as they did most of this season with a
very deep line up and an 8-2 record. The speedy Sauce would
put up twelve on the way to a mercy win and lock of the second
seed behind All In. As Anthony Alliago did his thing finishing
in second place in the scoring race his final game of the season
saw a six point night and an entrance to the 30 point club. While
Anthony was good this squad is very deep with the likes of John
Carey, Matt Carlton, Jame Carricato and the speedy Eddie Conte
with strong net play by Bill Fox. When you hear the word shut
out in the Bay as of late you know it probably has something
to do with The Buzz net minder Mike Szendry. Well in this
contest it did but Mike would not be the only goalie earning a
shut out in this contest as the Wolf Pack's goalie Josh
Gilbert would also earn a shut out as the Wolf Pack and
The Buzz were knotted at ZERO when the final horn
screamed. As long as I have been in the Bay my memory fails me
to remember if this has ever happened before which I believe it
has not. As for the game the shoot out would have to decide this
one with a couple of pipe rings and a James Carricato snipe in
round five for the lone goal scored and an extra point in the
standings for the Buzz. What a great hockey game! If your
part of our facebook page you can see the shoot out on facebook
live. The Buzz who got the win will get to see TEAM
40 in the first round of the playoffs like they did a short
season ago. Last season they met them as a one seed while this
year it will be a 3 vs 6 match up. TEAM 40 was Abel to
stay out of the cellar as team leader Bob Munday was good for
a four point night with two goals and two assists. THE DRAFT
LEAGUE PLAYOFFS ROUND ONE: All In vs Zorros,
as the 9-1 All In are the team to be beat this season along
with the Sauce the Zorros will have a tuff battle
ahead if they are planning to shock All In. As the Zorros
definitely have the speed to make this happen in a one game
playoff, Frank Alliago and Ray Recco will have to be on their
game as so will goalie Anthony Ciambriello.
With the names just being mentioned they can upset this team with
an A game effort but if not Joey Risatano's bunch will earn a
first round win. Sunday Sauce vs The Bull Dogs, same thing
in this game. As the Bull Dogs line up looks very deep
the squad season was not impressive with a 2-7-1 record. With
the likes of Pontillo, Congustia, Finley and Shor these guys will
have to play to their max levels to slow down the speed of the
Sauce. In a one game playoff also possible but they will have
to get a great outing from BJ Florio and Alex Morozov as well.
If not the Sauce will earn a win in this one quickly. Bay
Brewery vs Harambe's Homies, as Bay Brewery took a
gamble on the injured Carl Murraco on draft day it don't look
like the gamble will pay off. With that being said this game still
has the looks to be the game of the night as both squads play
with their hearts on their sleeve and who ever comes out in this
one it will be no surprise. Players to watch. Mike Millazo, Jonathan
Hennesy, P. Teserio and Dilberti on the Homies side, Galligan,
Gambino, Schector, A. Kelly and Weston on the Brew side.
The Hansons vs Lit AF: When the Hansons have their
full line up in order this is a scary bunch. With the Wheels of
Johnny Wagner and Thomas Votto they will be tuff to slow. Lit
AF will counter with three words Kelly and Gainley. Round One
of the Draft League playoffs sets off Tuesday night, strap
yourselves in! Coming shortly STRONG B PLAYOFF Preview

love to hate! 6/17/17 FINAL DRAFT STATS POSTED, PLAYOFF MATCHES

need to be updated. 6/10/17 THE BIG B STORY! Pitbulls Take the
BIG B!, Astoria Drop Two Straight and Bounce Back Hard, The Buzz
Give Up None Take Two, Wolf Pack Grind out a Shoot Out win and
Will See them again! With a long week in the Bay with Three
full nights of play this update will have the write up done by
division! The Pitbulls met with TNT to set off Week
11 and this game would be decided in period two of play when
Nicky Congusita darted home two finishing off his hat-trick
and a 5-3 final. Fast forward to Wednesday night after trailing
2-1 after two the Pitbulls would storm back with three
unanswered goals and a 4-2 win. Ralph Maruchi's second of the
night on a credited empty net goal sealed the fate in this one.
With those two wins the Pitbulls finished their season
at 8-2 the same as Astoria would finish theirs. Who knew
the contest between the two the prior week before would be for
the division as the Pitbulls took the W and a first round
bye. With just two short season's under his belt The Buzz's
Mike Szendry is already famous in the Bay and a name in every
fans house hold! Posting shut out's four and five in Week 11
Mike has five shut out's in eight games played posting a stingy
1.25 goals against average. Joe Chici had a season like this years
back in the Bay for Marine Park as we'll have to check
the archives on this as to see the record for most shut outs in
a season. With that the Buzz Knocked off Astoria and
the Beach Rats last week and move into third place and
own the third spot and will face either the Beach Rats
or Team 40 in round one of the playoffs. Astoria
stopped their two game slide and scorched the back of the net
for ten and a mercy rule finish! Rob Alibrandi went for a trick
and two assists while the Kasimis brothers netted two each and
Merindino set up four! The Wolf Pack would close out Week
11 with a shoot out win over TNT. With TNT trailing
3-1 heading into the final period J. DeAngeo would net two to
even the score putting the shoot out in play. Jason Weston of
the Wolf Pack goal in the skills comp would hold up to
be the game winner. As the standings sit these two teams will
meet again in the first round of the playoffs! And that's your
Week 11 BIG B look! Standings have been updated, stats
next! The DRAFT LEAGUE STORY AS OF WEEK 11! All In and Bay
Brewery both take Two, Sunday Saucers in a Shoot Out Edge and
Bull Dogs Dominate! All In would set Week 11 off on
Wednesday night and flexed their muscle. Notching wins seven and
eight their top two picks in Matt Galeano and Mike Szendry both
lead the league in scoring and GAA! A draft shut out would be
served by Mike on Wednesday night as Matt had a five point night
with two goals and three assists having something to do five of
the six scored in the victory. All In carried the momentum
into Thursday as it was Steven Yuspa's turn to have a big night.
Hitting the back of the net four times Yuspa was in the zone!
All In would turn out a 10-5 win in that one as they have
one game left and if they can plug out a win they will own the
top seed! Here is where things get interesting. Sunday Sauce
will have a shot at the division if All In lose, they win
and can over take the plus minus catagory which they currently
trail. The two teams spilt their head to head matches during the
regular season. The Sauce on Sunday got their win on Tuesday
night when Matty Carlton was the lone goal scorer in the shoot
out session getting All In that extra point! Bay Brewery
currently standing in second place alone can do no better
than second or drop to third. As they finished off their season
with two wins in Week 11 Mike Gambino was a nasty man on
Tuesday night having a four goal five point night in the Brew
Crews 6-3 win! The play off that win carried into Thursday
as the squad put together five unanswered goals but held on in
the end for a 6-5 win! Thomas Galligan was the bread winner on
Thurs with a trick and two assists. The Bull Dogs needed
a strong effort in Week 11 after a sub par seasonal and
would get one. The Dogs first round pick in Steven Finley
played serious netting two goals and two assists in the dominating
6-0 victory. Two games left and then the second season will begin!
Standings pages updated, Stats next and a Week 12 schedule
by Sunday morning.
6/4/17 Hansons Get Serious, TNT Tighten the Race, Lit AF in
a Burner and Pitbulls hand them their first! How deep is the
Hansons lineup? Well their record won't show what this team
is capable of doing but the squad was running on all cylinders
last Thursday night hitting the back of the net for eight! Taking
a 4-2 lead into the final session they won the final fifteen by
the same score and an 8-4 win. Thomas Votto came late and put
home two as Johnny Wagner was good for a trick and two assists
as they still await a Nicky Mazzolla release off the DL. Arch
rivals TNT and the Buzz went at it and before the
contest started the two teams were locked at eight points each
in the standings. TNT would jump out to a two zip lead
after one and a trade of goals in the middle session would make
for a 3-1 TNT lead heading into the thrid session. Alex
Kelly would get the Buzz back with in one with 7:37 left
in the period but that's how this one would end as goal keep Anthony
Ciambriello of TNT was sharp to make the final score of
3-2 stand! TNT's Andrew McCord netted two goals in the
win as his second goal of the night held up to be the game winner.
Lit AF and Harambe's Homies were involved in a defensive
draft struggle and after Mike McGrath would put Lit AF
up 1-0 just :57 tics in, the next goal scored wouldn't be till
the Homies Matt Dilberti evened things up at the 11:26
mark of period two. Fast forward the 1-1 knot t 8:32 left in the
affair it would be a Phil Rykala goal that would hold up to be
the game clincher for Lit AF. A 2-1 final as each period
saw a lone goal scored, good work by both goalies on both sides
of the asphalt! After winning last season's championship Astoria
jumped out the gate this seasonal to a 7-0 start. Looking back
they finished last season with four straight wins in their playoff
run totaling eleven straight! The last time the squad lost you
would have to go back to Dec. 27th of 2016 in a 5-4 loss to the
Beach Rats. The streak would finally come to an end last
Thursday night at the hand of the Pitbulls as the dogs
would dominate the final two periods of play! Trailing 3-2 in
the opening period the Pitbulls would net the next seven
goals unanswered for a 9-3 lead as this one would end with a 9-5
final score. Jonathan Hennessey of the Pitbulls would put
together a six point night with two goals and four assists retaking
the scoring race with nineteen points with two games to play.
The Pitbulls will also have a shot at the division as they
now trial Astoria only by two. A big Week 11 Posted
below with three nights of puck in the Bay and then only one more
night after that as the second season is only four nights played
in the Bay away. All pages pages updated! And this read was worth

6/5/28/17 Week 10 Schedule Posted.
5/24/17 Bay Brewery Charge Back, Sunday Sauce Keep on Trucking,
Lit AF Come Through and Beach Rats in the Win Column!!! Bay
Brewery and Harambe's Homies were dead locked at four
heading into the final session as the Brew crew would pull
away and go up by two mid way through the third. The Homies
Pete Teserio wasn't finished just yet netting two goals in a span
of just 1:19 with only 2:40 left and even the contest at sevens!
But Mike Gambino wasn't ready to through the towel putting home
a Jason Schector dish for his fifth point of the night and an
8-7 Brew Crew Win! Speed and Skill have been on display
by the Sauce of Sundays of late and last night was no different!
Leaving period one up 4-0 they would cruise out with a 10-6 victor.
Sauce's first choice in Anthony Alliago stayed consistant
putting up half his teams goals in the W. Lit AF's Phil
Rykala and his cross fit stayed hot as he put up four more points
in his teams 6-4 win. That's nine points in the last two games
for Philip and two straight wins for Lit AF! It's been
a struggle for the Beach Rats this season as their goalie
went down to an injury and Steve Kelly has only been in a uniform
for a game. But last night it didn't look that way as the Rats
scored five unanswered goals adding up to a 7-4 win! Big John
DeSilva had a two goal night as Mike McGrath was good for two
goals and three assists in the teams best effort yet! All pages
updated.. stats, standing and the league leaders!
5/21/17 Week 9 Posted!
5/20/17 Pitbulls on Attack!, The Buzz and Astoria take two,
Lit AF Grab a Split, Bay Brewery in a Battle and Zorros Soar!
The Pitbulls rushed period one hitting the back of the
net four times adding two goals in the second and another in the
third for a 7-3 winner. Jonathan Hennessy was good for a hat-trick
in the win while over taking a brief league lead in points with
thirteen! It was Astoria's Rob Alibrandi crack at the
scoring sheet next on Tuesday night as he tagged the box
score for five with a trick and two assists in the 6-2 walk. On
Thursday night Astoria was in jeopardy of losing their
first game of the season falling in a 3-0 hole and fighting back
for a 3-2 deficit after one. TNT would go up 4 -2 but two
John Verde goals would end the second in a 4-4 balance. TNT
would go up 5-4 with 3:40 to play but Spiro Kasmis would nab
the equalizer with 46.1 left as Spiro again would be the lone
goal scorer in the shoot out session for a perfect Astorian
7-0 march on the seasonal! The Buzz were back at their
shut down hockey lead by their goal keep Mike Senzerdry who added
two more shut outs to his collection! His second and third of
this current season! Mike was quick to credit his defense on all
his success in the Bay! Kelly, Risatano and Brian Murray all hit
the mesh in the 3-0 victory on Tuesday night as Alex Kelly put
home a hat-trick on Thursday in a 6-0 romp. Lit AF would
storm the mesh on Tuesday night for eight. Phil Rykala's intense
training paid off in this one as he was good for four goals and
an assist with a five point night! Bay Brewery and the
Hansons were involved in an intense low scoring draft battle!
Knotted at one after one a Jason Weston snipe in period two would
make for a 2-1 Brew Crew lead. That's all the scoring this
one would see besides a Alex Kelly empty netter in a 3-1 Brewery
grind out! The Zorros pumped out the offense in our last
game of the week putting up six! Frank Alliago would put up four
of those six goals as Anthony Galeano had a goal and three assists!
All pages updated with Week 9 update on Sunday morning.
5/14/17 Hansons take two, Bay Brewery Come from Behind and
Sunday Sauce Hault the Win Streak! Hansons dominated Week
7 putting up big numbers with eighteen goals in two games
evening their record at 2-2. Captain Rob Mazuchin stayed hot with
a rare four goal night in the win on Thursday! Bay Brewery
were in jepordey of dropping their second game of the week trailing
3-1 and 5-3 heading into the final session. But a Jason Schector
goal with 5:50 left in regulation put the Brew back within
a goal and a Tommy Galigan equalizer came with only nineteen tics
left to send this game into the shoot-out. Bay Brewery's
Mike Gambino was the only skater who would connet in the shoot
out and that would earn the win for the Brew Crew! The
game we all marked on a calendar between two of the top draft
squads went down between the undefeated All In and the
on the rise Sunday Saucers! The Sunday Sauce were
able to flex their speed and take advantage of the Matt Galeano
less All In in a 6-3 final geting goal scoring from five
different skaters in the win. A frustrated Joey Ristano was quick
to point out "It was still a one goal game with under five
minutes to play even without Matt in the line up". All team
pages updated, league leader, standings and a reworked schedule
below in a rain out catch up week as some teams fell behind with
the rain outs earlier in the season.
5/11/17 Pitbulls break the knot, All In Stay Perfect, Sunday
Sauce a Force and Team 40 in the extra shoot session! Knotted
at two with under four to play in the Buzz and Pitbulls
match the Pitbulls Nicky Congusita would break the
tie with just 3:47 left as Pete Teserio would add some insurance
at the 1:06 mark for a 4-2 final! All In would groove to
the hum of a 6-0 start pulling away every time their opponents
would inch back in they continued their stellar play! Joey ZaZa
hit the back of the net last night as Paul Barcavage had an assist
on his birthday but more important an All In Win! Team
40 would jump out to a quick 2-0 lead but TNT would
get one back in the first and second periods of play and after
a score less final session a shoot out was needed to settle the
score. After a goal trade in round one Tom Galligan would tally
up in round three as back up goal keeper Pat Black said no and
a Team 40 W! Sunday Sauce flexed dominance with
speed and precision! After taking a 1-0 lead after one they would
win period two 4-2 and the final session 2-1 for a convincing
7-3 win. Anthony Alliago hit the mesh four times and added an
assist for a five point night! All standings and stats will be
updated over the weekend with some teaks in the schedule as well
as some teams need to catch up. Zorros Attack, Wolf Pack Revenge,
Astoria in Control and Hansons Explode! Ray Recco and Frank
Alliago have found each other! The Zorros top line was
explosive Monday night in the Bay hooking up four times on the
way to a 6-1 route! Can't say enough about Zorros
goal keep of late as Anthony Ciambriello
was dynamite between the pipes stopping everything that come his
way besides the lone goal with 1:06 to play. Wolf Pack got
revenge from the last meet between the two teams as they would
control most of the game from puck drop. KC Krober lead the charge
with two goals and an assist in the 5-2 march. The defending champs
making statements they are the team to beat again! Scoring just
:30 into the contest they cruised out with a 6-2 win. Rob Alibrandi
did his thing with two goals and three assists having something
to do with five of the six tallies! Hansons came out on
fire scotching the first period of play! Netting five in the first
and third periods of play they steam rolled to a 11-4 win. The
captain himself had a six point night in the contest as Johnny
Wagner hit the back of the net for four!
5/6/17 Sunday Sauce Break the Third, All In Stay Perfect,
The Buzz Lock Down and The Wolf Pack make a Statement! Taking
a 3-1 lead into the final session the Sunday Saucers would
break out with five unanswered goals in the final session and
an 8-1 stomp out. Anthony Alliago darted a hat-trick in the win
as Bill Fox stoned wall between the pipes! The Buzz's Mike
Szendrey was in lock down mode again posting his first shut out
of the season as his Buzz went on to win three zip. Mike
lead the league in shut out's last season with three while locking
down the lowest GAA, he patiently awaits his trophy! All In
is half way through their regular season and now half way to perfect!
Stringing together a fifth straight win and a 5-0 start they are
the only undefeated team left in draft play! Captain Joey Risatano
took charge last Wednesday setting up two and netting the same
for a four point night in a 6-1 win! Talking about making a statement
the Wolf Pack put up two good games last week but it was
Thursday's night game that should have teams turning their heads.
After trailing 1-0 just a minute into play the Wolf Pack
controlled most the contest. Lead by Thomas Kirby and KC Krober
the Wolf Pack would net the next four goals unanswered
and demand a 4-1 win. Kirby was good for two goals as KC and Jon
Krober both set up two! All pages updated with a Week 7

From Behind Thriller, TNT Set Off and Astoria in a Good Burn!
Harambe's Homies came out on fire with four unanswered goals
and didn't give up a goal against till 1:32 left in the middle
session. But the Hansons fought back hard netting the next
three of four to make for a one goal game but the Homies would
end that noise as Greg Hilare would put the game away for good
at 3:48 mark and a 6-4 final! J. Hennessy and Pete Teserio posted
a pair in the win as Johnny Wager was good for a trick in the
loss! It was the Steve Kelly show in the Lit AF match vs
the Bull Dogs as Steve would hit the back of the net seven
times wiping out a three goal deficit in the final session and
netting the game winner with just 1:06 left in regulation in the
crazy come from behind triumph! DeAngeo, Recco and Fitzpatrick
all went mesh building a three zip lead for TNT into the
final minutes of play as the Beach Rats would spoil the
shut out in Anthony Cimbrello's stellar performance with just
fifty four tics left and a 3-1 final! And in the final game of
the night it was the World Champion Astoria vs the Wolf
Pack in an exciting match that went down to the final minute
of play! As Astoria would open up a 2-0 lead on two Kosta
Kasimis goals heading into the last fifteen captain Dave Kalman
would get his team on the board for a 2-1 game then Thomas Kirby
would go end to end shoot wide catch his rebound off the boards
and slam home a 2-2 tie! With out Wolf Pack's big guns
in the lineup last night the David vs Goliath match would end

4/19/17 Pitbulls Crash the Third, All In String Four while
Bay Brewery nail a third! As the NY Rangers played
game four at the garden last night in a must win situation we
knew the attendance would be poor in the bay as the Pitbulls
and Beach Rats would set our night off with no bench
on either side the rink! But the game was indeed a good one as
the die hards suited up and the score was knotted at three after
two. After the Beach Rats would score an early third period
goal it would be all Pitbulls from their scoring three
unanswered goals off the sticks of Dilberti, Conguestia and Pontillo
to ring up the 5-3 win. Joey Ristatano's All In would end
regulation tied at three and would earn a forth straight W and
a 4-0 start in the extra session win. Galeano was good for two
in the victory as Hennessy posted a trick in the OT loss. Bay
Brewery has been down 1-0 in all three of their games this
season but what they do after they been down a goal has put them
out to 3-0 start. These guys have been all cylinders a go as line
two teammates Kelly and Weston hooked up twice as so did the defensive
forward punch in Galigan and Gambino. Jason Schector also was
offensive from the back field netting deuce in the 6-4 final.

up in their third meet! After trailing 1-0 the Dogs would
net the next five unanswered for a 5-1 triumph. Martin Shor netted
two with a helper as Sammy Pontillo had a goal and two assists.
Astoria and Beach Rats bumped heads and after Astoria
opened up a two goal lead on Jason Merideno and Mike Byrne goals
but the Beach Rats would keep it close making it a one
goal game twice. A Verde goal with just 4:25 left would put Astoria
back up by two and soon close out a 4-2 win. TNT would
play their second game of the week and were just as good in this
one as their season opener. Steven Ampster showed flash hitting
the back of the net twice as new comer Taylor is making a bid
for rookie of the year scoring twice and dishing off two for a
four point night. TNT move on with a 6-2 gallop. With that
being said both last season finalists are both out to a 2-0 start.
All pages updated with Week 4 below.
4/11/17 Bay Brewery String Two out the Gate, Harambe's Homies
and TNT come Goal Keep Strong and All In blow out the Candles!
Picked seventh and eighth over all on draft night Tom Galigan
and Mike Gambino have been working well together just two games
in. Last night the duo hooked up twice while both scoring twice
on the way to a 4-1 Bay Brewery win! Jonathan Hennessy
would score just 4:35 into game play and that's all Robbie Teserio
would need to get a win. Posting a shut-out a rare feat in draft
play Robbie was very good! Shutting down some big offensive guns
the Homies would move out with a four zip stoner! Another
goalie who was on his game TNT's Anthony Cimbrello also
playing a stone rock wall not letting any in cooling off the Wolf
Pack who put up nine in their pervious contest. New comer
Taylor put home two in the five zero triumph! The crowd all got
together chanting the Happy Birthday song and made the Birthday
boy Matt Galeano blush. While the singing continued through out
the game Galano sang to the hum of a six point night with four
goals and two assists in a six three final for All In.
Having something to do with every goal scored Matt took over the
scoring lead race from teammate Joey Risatano who lead the league
in scoring for exactly five days. Five Days! With all that chatter,

C on his chest hitting the back of the net for three and his number
one draft pick he was forced to pick would follow up with two
in Matt Galeano as All In would cruise out with a 6-2 glide.
The Pitbulls displayed video clips of their game plan and
followed suit. Out hustling, capitalizing on mistakes they would
rush the mesh for eight. Anthony Alliago made his debut in a Pitbulls
uniform posting a hat-trick as Hennessy and P. Teserio followed
with two. Pitbulls run deep this seasonal with many weapons
in their arsenal. Wolf Pack added some juice and some puck
play to strengthen their core and beast mode was in effect! Posting
a nine spot Tom Kirby, Jay Weston and KC Krober all hit the back
of the net twice on their way to a 9-1 stomp in their season opener!
The game of the night nod would go to Sunday Saucers and Harambe's
Homies! The seesaw tug a war would persist as Sunday Saucers
would be up 3-1, then down 5-3 as they would grab the next two
to equalize off of James Carriato's stick. Regulation couldn't
decide this one as the shoot out would last two rounds as Sauce
was served cold with Cary and Alliago both glorious in the All
In Win! Website pages being worked on........
4/2/17 Homies Debut Hard, Astoria Defend well, Bay Brewery
Pull Away and All In Pop off! Mike Millazo and Jonathan Hennessy
would both hit the back of the net for tricks as the Harambe's
Homies would tally up eight on their way to an 8-4 win. Homies
rolling deep! Fresh off a championship win the Astorians
would open up a two goal lead just six minutes in and take a 3-1
lead into the final session. Team 40 would get back within
one on a Mike Goucher breakaway goal but the team couldn't find
the equalizer as Mike Carpinini put home his second of the night
into the empty basket to seal the deal. Jason and Jason, Schector
and Weston with a dose of your favorite commissioner all hit the
back of the net twice as the Bay Brewery pulled away in
this one with a 7-3 tilt. Goalie Frank "Pizza Boy" was
solid between the pipes as Liam Morris laced up the quads after
a long hiatus playing a good dee! After trailing 3-1 early in
the third period of play Joey Ristatano would put up a natural
hat-trick while singing Happy Birthday to himself humming out
an All In Win! Great opening night in the Bay as this Draft
seasonal looks to be one to remember. All new team pages stats

3/25/17 SPRING SEASON KICK OFF IS HERE! WEEK
1 POSTED BELOW AND FULL SEASON SCHEDULE POSTED ON SCHEDULES
3/4/17 TEAM BROWN Take Down Kings Bay Hockey
Glory in an deciding GAME 3 OVER TIME THRILLER! Just four minutes
into the first overtime session the Hero of the Day would be Steven
Ampster slapping a bullet through traffic finding the back of the
net for a TEAM BROWN Championship win. The game was nothing
but a battle from puck drop as both teams played a cautious game
that would only see a trade of goals through regulation. With Rob
Mazzuchin banging home a first period rebound goal for Team Brown
and Nicky Conguista netting a top shelf beauty after showing off
some razzle for Harmabe's Homies getting even at one in the
middle session. A score less third period of play and if you were
on the Face book live feed as you know the phone died early into
the overtime session missing the Ampster heroics. Talking about
heroics both goalies can get the nod for player of the game in this
one! Rob Halsey and Robbie Teserio both stepped up to the occasion
making many big stops keeping this a low scoring affair and a memorable
deciding game for the crown. With that being said the 9-1 Team
Brown go all the way to the top of the mountain and get the
job down etching their name in history of Champions of the Bay!
Congratulations Chris Brown, Steve Ampster, Dan Brown, Nick Calabrese,
Nicky Mazzolla, Rob Halsey and Rob Mazuchin. And helmets off to
all Homies of Harambe putting up a hell of a series in a
battle of the one and two seeds that could of went either way. And
now with one season ending a new one will be beginning. Who will
lead the way to the next Kings Bay Cup? New Season info
2/26/16 Crown the Champs! Astoria take down the
STRONG B Championship! Team Brown Battle out a win and force a Game
Three! The Heart, the Hustle, the Skill and a display of shut
down Hockey were the ingredients in Astoria's final stamp
on a Championship run! Opening up a two goal lead after a period
of play off the sticks of Mike Gillispie and Rob Alibrandi and that's
all that Astoria would need as the Final score would read
the same! Goal Keep BJ Florio was able earn the shutout making
the big saves when he had to as the Astoria defense gave
him the support he needed to do his thing between the pipes.
In an history spanning way back to 2007 when they first raised the
cup it was a combination of the youth, the new faces and of course
the veterans that got the job done this seasonal. The Veteran mix
Mikey Byrne, Rob Alibrandi, Jason Meridino and the vacationing Nick
Divititio. The youth Rosselli and Dylan Alibrandi and those new
faces in Gillispie and Florio! And the main man who keeps it all
together Joseph Barker! Crown the Champs Astoria Wins the Cup Winter
2017! TEAM BROWN evens the series at one to force a final
Game three for the Draft League title! And what a game it was, as
said in the previous loss some of the weight has to come off of
Christopher Brown's shoulders for this team to succeed in this finals!
Nicky Mazzola would step up to the task at hand wheeling and dealing
in the defensive end while hitting the back of the net three times
for the hat-trick! Harambe's Homies Pete Teserio stayed hot
posting another hat-trick with his third goal of the night making
it a one goal game with just 1:58 left in the contest! But that's
when Nicky Mazzola would finish off his trick just thirty one tics
later to earn the two goal lead back and eventually the win to force
the game three! There was some bitterness between the two squads
after the contest which is going to make this an even more anticipating
final game to watch for the Kings Bay Cup! Game three for
the Draft League finals coming at you this week! Final STRONG
B Stats posted, Draft stats next along with a new season update
2/23/17 Harambe's Homies Storm Game One as Astoria
Special Teams Prevail! Harambe's Homies mission in game was
completed as the squad put up five unanswered goals spanning all
three periods of plan engineering a dominating game one Draft
League Finals performance! Back in the line up Pete Teserio
posted a natural hat-trick while adding two assists for a five point
night. Brother Robbie Teserio was good too setting the tone early
making many big stops helping his team carry the momentum though
out the contest. The Homies of Harambe can close out
the series and a Kings Bay Cup Championship tonight in the
Bay. As for Team Brown the team who won nine straight during
the regular season have now dropped their last two of three will
be facing elimination tonight in the Bay. The Kings Bay Cup
will be in the House as Team Brown will try and stop the
party! Astoria would come out with fire in their hearts from
puck drop, taking a penalty just seconds in and scoring twice short
handed! James Rosselli would add his second of the night just seven

the nod for division champs! Astoria was on attack mode last
night and the man who scored the biggest goal in East River Rats

was at it again! Having one of his best night's in the Bay ever
with a five goal night scoring four unanswered! His name? Nick Divittorio!
Harambe's Homies Nick Congustia threatened he better be in
the write up and a deep look into the score sheet he deserved so!
The gritty D-Man who is one of the last man standing on quads put
home a hat-trick from the point while adding an assist! The game
was a wild one that looked like it was over early as Harambe's

in Team Brown's favor keeping that undefeated season alive!
The game had many highlights including Chris Brown getting back
into the scoring race with a eleven point night having something
to do with all but one goal. And fill in player Scotty Adelle scoring

would be no love lost between the two! In the Battle for first the
game was a good one as the two teams traded goals through the first,
second and third periods of play setting up a shoot out session
and then it would be Mike Szendrey time! The Buzz goalie
has been dominant all season long and this shoot out session would
be no different as he owned it letting up none! The lone goal from
Brian Murray would be the game winner and an inch closer for The
Buzz to clinching the division! Sunday Sauce's domination
in period two of play helped them build a 4-1 lead heading into
the final session and cruise out with a 5-3 win. Five different
skaters for the Sauce would hit the back of the net in the
win including Maruchi, McGrath, Millazo, Delduca and one other guy.
Team 40 and the Wolf Pack would be involved in a goal
trade through three periods of play that landed on four as a skills
competition would be needed to settle this one. Billy Buckman's
deke left would be the game winner as Team 40 earns the extra
point! Team 40's Mr. Thursday night Hockey in Mike Goucher
was good for two goals during regulation but was stopped twice in
the shoot out session as multiple rounds were needed. Harambe's
Homies laid law as team captain Jonathan Hennessy would storm
the back of the net for a four goal night! Teammate and life long
friend Sam Pontillo played the set up roll dishing off four three

game of the season last Thursday night! Trailing 4-3 after two the
Buttheads would open the third with four straight goals to
take a commanding lead with just 2:52 left! The Sword made
one last bid to get out of the basement scoring goals at 2:00 and
1:10 but that would be it as the Buttheads earn the two points and
move out of last place in Draft League play. Conti, Morozov
and Shor all had two goals each in the win. The Buzz would
take a 1-0 lead out of period one and take that same lead deep into
the final session of play until they would earn their second of
the night with 4:55 remaining in regulation and a 2-0 lead. Team
40 would finally break on through master goal keep Mike Szendrey
with 2:25 left but Mike would say no the rest of the way as Joe
Risatano would add an empty net goal and a 3-1 Buzz win!
Borough's Best team owner Carl Murraco would go banana's
in the Bay lighting the score sheet on fire for a doomsday for his
opponents. Dropping a ten point night with two hat tricks and four
assists Borough's Best smoked out a win! Not much to say
about the last game of the night, but it is an official game and
I'm done with all the Chaos Conti is causing! All pages updated
along with a Week 10 Schedule! Attendance records need to
be updated for most teams from Thursday night.
11/30/16 Rain Out... Heavy Rain no play in the

11/28/16 Week 9 Posted!!! Let's Get it On!
11/23/16 Team Brown Pull Away, TNT the best Dressed
Secret, Teal Team Six Destroy and The Buzz out the Battle! Dan
Brown put home his third of the night early in the final session
of a great draft battle between Team Brown and Haramabe's
Homies that would hold up to be the game winner in a 4-2 final!
The win keep's the Steam roll going strong in the 7-0 charge. TNT
finally got to put on those much talked about threads and after
a slow start they would control the final two periods of play. Ray
Recco would lead the switch board with a trick while goal
keeper Anthony Cimbrello was good for the shut out in victory!
Teal Team Six was out to slaughter the mesh and touched for
ten! Johnny Wagner entered the land of hat-trick's while Anthony
Galeano dished off four in a 10-5 final. Fast Ed Conte of the Buttheads
was good for a hat-trick himself in the loss. The two Strong
B front runners collided for the second time this season and
the same result would unfold. A great one goal hockey game that
ended up 2-1 in Joey Risatano's The Buzz favor! After the
Pitbulls came out of period one up 1-0 the Buzz would
get two second period goals off the sticks of Frank Milazo and Joe
Carricato for a 2-1 lead as the rest of the game would go score
less and the Buzz stand six and one proud! The final minutes
of the game can been seen on our face book page Kings
Bay Hockey Now for those interested! As for last week like
stated below with a blog owed Team Brown in yet another tight
match come out with the edge and a 6-4 win battle against Sunday
Saucers. League's leading scorer in Chris Brown was good for
a natural hat-trick in triumph shinning bright in his team's 6-0
start. After the game Joey Risatano said "We owned the game".
While Others said "The final score said different". From
puck drop Harambe's Homies would run the asphalt! It was rumored
Sam Ponitllo couldn't sleep until this blog was posted and with
much reason. Sammy the blinking wheeled bandit was monster in this
contest totaling eight points on the evening while having something
to do with every Homies goal for! Stunning night in the
8-2 crush! The game of the night nod would go to Beach Rats and
Astoria collision as the Rats would hold on for a 3-2
win. Vinny Delduca of the Beach Rats nailed the first two
goals of his gang's night as Mike McGrath's tally would hold up
to be the game winner. The show must go on and as The Swords
BJ Florio was out sick with the flu and Robbie Teserio was at
the liquor store yours truly would have to suit up between the pipes.
And as much as I like to say I played good, I gave up twelve. Matt
Duffy of Borough's Best had a field day posting a double
hat-trick. But in the end it was a game to be won due to having
a guy like Matt Galeano on your side with 3:10 left in the contest
the score was 10-9! But Borough's Best would hit me up for
two more and a 12-9 winner! Stat central, Stat central yes we are
all updated, team standings too! Everyone eat and drink too much!

11/12/16 Team Brown Stay Gold, Team 40 Sober
Up, Pitbulls Strong and Conti's Chaos with a lead! With Chris
Brown out of the line up George Konstantinidis would be all the
muscle Team Brown would need. Posting a five point night
George would punch in four while setting up one. Team Brown moves
to a perfect five and zero on the season at the mid way point! Team
40 would finally wake up after last seasons Kings Bay Cup
victory and then a four game slide with a win over the same
team. Bobby Munday would provide the scoring seed with a Hat-trick
and a 5-2 Team 40 Win! After dropping the season opener the
Pitbulls have not lost! Posting up their fifth straight victory
last Thursday Jonathan Hennessy would have a four goal night as
leagues leading scorer Sam Pontillo had three assists on the way
to a 6-2 win. These dogs roll deep as they have out scored their
opponents 35 to 12 in the win streak! With all that Jazz it's good
for a tie for first place in the division with The Buzz as
the two will have one more meet this season. The last game of the
night was Conti's Chaos vs the Wolf Pack but unfortunately
I had to leave the arena early and no one was kind enough to pass
the score sheet on to me. But when I left the Chaos was up
4-0. Standings and team pages updated (except Wolf Pack &
Conti's Chaos) , attendance records from Thursday night need

mid way though the second but the lead would be cut to two by periods
end. Carl Murraco of the Borough would have his best noise
maker night of the season as his squad would win the third in a
10-7 final! Carl was macho in this one with a seven point night,
six goals and a helper! Some say the Sword have the best
team on paper but their 0-3 record didn't support the statements.
Last night they finally got it in the W column by holding on in
the end. The Sword would hold down a 6-2 lead early in the
third but Teal Team Six would score three unanswered for
a one goal game with 3:22 left in regulation. The Mighty Sword
were able to kill off those final minutes and capture their
first win of the season. A photo can be seen on the face book page
of the short staffed gang! With a playoff like atmosphere the Buzz
and TNT would bump heads in a mid way seasonal battle for
first place! With a score less battle going into the final session

first place in the Strong B! The Buzz goalie Mike
Szendrey has been nothing short of out standing between the pipes!

by periods end in a 4-3 tussle. Using every last second leagues
leading scorer in Chris Brown would knot the game at five with just
1.8 on the clock in a frantic scramble and a loose puck landing
on his stick in front of the net as he would slam it home sending
us into the shoot-out. Team Brown stays perfect with the
shoot out grab! The Buzz would move to four and one on the
season with an all out team assault. Shredding the mesh for six
the Buzz goal keep M. Szendrey was a nasty man posting his
second shut out on the seasonal while holding down a 1.75 GAA. The
Wolf Pack would stop their four game skid hitting the back
of the net for six! Getting goal scoring from five different skaters
KC Krober lead the club with two goals and an assist. As for Team
40 the Kings Bay Cup hang over continues as they remain
win less on the season. The Buttheads would dedicate their
match to Alex Morozov's hurt dog. Alex's dog was injured prior to
game so he couldn't make the meet and the team made sure they would
notch their first win of the season in his honor. Animal lover and
dog supporter Charlie Sbrigato made sure to sail home a hat-trick
as Craig Krammer put home two. The squad was ecstatic about getting
their first W but showed concern for Alex's dog. All team pages
updated along with a Week 6 schedule!

speed would take over this match as three middle session goals from
D. Alibrandi, Spagtugo and 10 would make for a skate sail and a
4-1 dump. TNT also have some speed in their step and would
out grind and out score their opponents in a 5-3 victory. TNT's
depth would show five goals scored from five different skaters in
serge. Team Brown's goal differential rocks an astonishing
plus 21 in just three short games! The scary thing is the team has
yet to show the full potenial as the teams top three picks have
yet to play together. Final score on Thursday 10-3 as Chris Brown
added five more points to his league leading total of seventeen!
Fresh off a bye week Teal Team 6 built a 4-1 lead after two

three and ultimately skating away with a 7-3 win! Eleven's lit up

with every Outlaws goal with a double hat-trick and a measly

Maurrco and Carlton all netted two each in the win as Mike McGrath
was good for the trick in the L. Harambe's Homies captain
Jonathan Hennesey got the team he wanted to pick on draft day and
that rarely happens. With that said the team showed chemistry right
out the gate posting up a 6-1 convincing win! Not only that the

the pipes (One Goal Against) this could be the team to be reckon
with in Draft play! The 10:15 slotted Wolf Pack would begin
their season opener down 1-0 after one! But with early goals in

home for the dramatic win. Hats off to Bardownski for almost
pulling off the huge upset. The Final for is stone and looks like

the scoring title. The 54 points falls one point shy of Matt Galeano's
record of 55. This is the second time Kelly had over 50 points in
the league. Bardownski would end their season on a positive
beating one of the leagues hottest teams in Team Pontillo Sammies.
Alex Morozov was good for a hat-trick in the win. Team Pontillo
started the season off at 0-4 and finished their season 5-1!
They bounced back from the Bardownski loss the following
night vs the Shamrocks in a shoot-out as John Hennesy was
the lone goal scorer in the shoot session and Robbie Teserio would

Another team finishing their season on a positive were Tommy
Guns as team leader Tom Galligan was good for a two goal night

in the Bay he throws kerosene on the score sheets! Steve Kelly of
Beach Deli threw fire to the back of the net for four and
added a helper for a five point flame. The game was a good one as
the Beach Deli would pull away in the final minutes of play
in a 7-4 gammer. With Steve's five points he sits at 47 points on
the seasonal. Three points shy of hitting the 50 point plateau for
a second time and nine points shy of breaking Matt Galeano's record
of 55! It all remains to be seen as does the Outlaws having
a perfect season. Their still on track as they reached eight in
a convincing 9-4 slam. The dynamic duo was at it again both hitting
the back of the net four times and leaving a stamp Galeano &
Carey on the back of the mesh begging someone to beat them! After

of thirteen with their twelfth victory being the raise to glory.
Going 9-1 in the regular season and 3-0 in playoff contention, their
final victory would see the Beach Rats take a 4-3 lead
into the final session of play then pull away in the third for the
win! Parker of the Beach Rats was pretty much unstoppable
posting a five point night having something to do with 5 of the
7 tallies! A season to remember for the boys from Gerritsen Beach!
STRONG B CHAMPS Winter 15-16! The Knights of Columbus
head back to the finals once again! The kings of the third period
would do it once again trailing 1-0 for the whole contest then equalize
the game with 7:10 remaining and wasted no time taking their first
lead of the game just 1:12 later. Scoring provided by Dennis Millzao
of course. A empty net goal and the KOC await the winner
of the Bergen Beach Brown Street contest for the right to
play for lord Kings Bay! Championship Photos, Video and more
coming later in the day! You can also see the 3 on 3 tournament
game scores below and get a good idea of how it was all broken down!

2/27/16 All In Snag Game One, Beach Rats Draw
First Blood and Astoria Move into the Final Four! All In would
strike early in period one on an Ian Stachel power play goal for
a 1-0 lead and never look back! Building a 3-1 lead after two and
an early third period 4-1 advantage they were on their way but the
Pitbulls would still make for an interesting end. Scoring
two late third period goals the Pitbulls would get within
one with :38 tics left in regulation, all too late as Matt Duffy
of All In would sail a biscuit into an empty basket and a
Game One Win! Captain Joey Ristatano's video from a prior season
can still be seen below and he was quoted saying "were going
all the way"! It didn't happen for him that season but he is
just one win away from going all the way this season! The dominant
Beach Rats would open the first period of play with two quick
goals within the first five minutes of play and looked like they
would continue their dominance though the rest of this one! But
a late period one Pitbulls tally would make this a game!
After a scoreless middle session the two teams would trade third
period goals and the Beach Rats would take a game one win
in the best of three series! 11 and Mike McGrath hooked up twice
in the Beach Rats game one strike! Astoria would net a goal
through each of the first three periods of play locking up a 3-0
lead with Rob Alibrandi providing two of the three goals for!
NOMAAM's John Carey would have a deuce of his own up his sleeve
netting two within a span of forty nine seconds with 5:31 to play
in a one goal game. Astoria would hold it down the rest of
the way and take a 3-2 win into the BIG B FINAL FOUR! The
final four is set and finally here! Top seeded Bergen Beach
will see Brown Street in a rematch of last seasons playoff
as the defending champions in Knights of Columbus will greet
Astoria! This Tuesday night in the Bay it all goes down!

1/17/16 Pitbulls & All In a Draft League
Final Meet and Beach Rats Pound In! The long awaited write from
last Wednesday night's games is here! The Draft league
was created so all teams shall be created equal, while some
seasons that may be case some seasons may not for one reason or
another. While the last two seasons saw two teams have a perfect
regular season, in the end, all draft teams are created equal! The
Undefeated Hansons took on All In for the right to
get to the Draft league finals and after two the Hansons
took a 4-3 lead into the final session. Let's just pause right here
and state last season it was All In who finished the regular
season perfect and got knocked off by the Hansons in the
finals ruining their perfect season. One short season later and
trailing by a goal with a period to play Joey Ristatano's club would
dig deep and return the favor! Jae Budha would equalize the game
at 11:04 and Steven Yuspa would earn the game winner with a goal
at the 7:21 mark as All In storm into the Draft League
Finals! They will get to meet the Pitbulls who were also
involved in a one goal game getting the edge earning a Cup Berth!
The difference in this match was a Vinny Delduca goal with just
five tics left in period two that would make for a 3-2 lead heading
into the final fifteen as the two involved traded goals in the third.
Pitbulls vs All In! Game One Tuesday night in the Bay!
The heavily favored Beach Rats would drop the heavy in the
third period of play. After a scoreless first and a Beach Rats
lone goal in period two the 9-1 regular season president's trophy
winners would net four more unanswered for a 5-0 win! Mike McGrath
would net two and Aarron Gainley would get the shut out nod in the
semi finals win! Beach Rats will be heavy favorites going
into the Strong B Finals again as the Pitbulls will
try and slow this club down. It all kicks off this week in the Bay!

1/9/16 Knights of Columbus Edge out a first Round
Win, Pitbulls Own the Third earn a Cup Finals Appearance, Brown
Street get four unanswered move to the Semi's and the Draft final
four is set! Two Big Nights One Big Blog! The Knights of
Columbus would break a score less tie in a tight match with
just :28 tics left in period two for a 1-0 lead heading into the
final session. Dennis Millazo would put KOC up by two with
just 4:52 left for a 2-0 lead as Gravesend would get one
back to make for an interesting end, a great playoff opener but
the KOC would keep the lead and move into the BIG B
Final Four! The Pitbulls and Team 40 would lock at
two through two but the young legs would prevail in the end out
scoring the men past 40 3-0 in the final session for a win and a
Championship meet! Jae Budha posted up a hat-trick in the win!
Brown Street would find themselves with there backs against
the wall heading into the final session down by two then would erupt.
Scoring four goals unanswered they would take a 5-2 win and charge
into the semi's. Anthony Allergio and Mike McGrath both put up two
goals each in the storm back win! The Pitbulls would trial
most of the contest by a two zero deficit and would score a late
second period goal off their captain Genero Seranio's stick. They
would take that momentum into the third and there was one man determined
to win, taking things personal and into his own hands! Playing against
his Dad, Tyler Adele would not let this win get away! Netting the
tying goal with 13:04 left he would tally again just under four
minutes later for the goal that held up to be the game winner! The
car ride home was a long one with one in silence and the other with
a grin. All In would reach the back of the net for five while
shutting down their opponents in a convincing 5-2 win! Getting goal
scoring from five different skaters with Matt Duffy setting up two
the squad is ALL IN for a Semifinals show down with the Hansons.
A rematch of last season's finalists, this season Hansons
finished the regular season perfect while last season it was
All In who was perfect through ten . The Final four is set in
Draft play Hansons vs All In and Bay Brewery vs Pitbulls!
Tuesday night is the show down, see schedule below! Final Regular
Season Stats are posted up and Bergen Beach Forward Nicky
Manfredini takes the BIG B scoring title with a 23 point
season as Chris Falco of the same squadron takes home the best Goals
Against Average with a 3.12. In the STRONG B Pitbulls Captain
Generon Seriano earns the scoring crown with nineteen point season
as the Beach Rats Aarron Gainley locks down the best G.A.A.
with a stingy 2.33. In draft league play it was Carl Marraco earning
the 50 points in nine games sitting out game number ten with the
flu and Scotty Adele of the Dragons hit the top GAA with
a 4.25. Scotty won't get the asterisk as he didn't make him self
eligible on draft day but did play in four games with the Dragons
and their playoff game to get the nod.
1/5/16 Beach Rats Storm into the Second Season,
Hansons Go Perfect, Gravesend break knot and Bay Brew Earn the Bye!
With a Real Feel temperature at 3 Degrees the real men came
out to play Hockey! Two refs and a goalie were out there for all
four games getting the nod for Kings Bay's Polar Bear award
in Balsan, Kirby and Chindemi! But enough about the weather let's
get into the Hockey! Mike McGrath lead the Beach Rats
call, pounding out a trick and adding an assist putting a final
stamp on the Beach Rats 9 and 1 season. Last night they would
tally for eight and are starving for the second season to begin!
They will meet the Wolf Pack in round one of the playoffs
Wednesday night in the Bay! Another team putting a final stamp on
the regular season is the Rob Mazuchin lead Hansons! Carl
Marraco was out sick last night and didn't get a shot at the 55
point record but Anthony Galeano would pick up the slack! Putting
home a hat-trick the Hansons final march through the regular
season would finish with a 5-2 win. A first round bye and they will
see the low seed in the semi-finals. Gravesends Ray Recco
would net two goals and an assist with his early third period goal
held up to be the game winner! Gravesend goal keep Steve
Balsan played a big part in the win making the big saves down the
stretch setting up a first round playoff match with the same
Knights of Columbus feeling some confidence off the grind
out win! The fight for the last first round bye in the Draft
League playoffs was a good one and up for grabs for three teams
heading into last nights games. With the Hansons win over
the Pitbulls the the winner of Sharks Bay Brewery
contest would earn a ticket to the Draft League semi-finals!
The Bay Brewery would take advantage of a Matt Galenoless
Sharks and pull away by period two's end building a 5-2 lead
and an 8-5 final. John Maranda would be a set up master in this
one setting up four goals while slapping one in from the point!
A five point night sir. The playoff matches are set in stone and
a look below you will see the meet and greet! Standings updated,
final regular season stats to follow! The second season is among
