ESSHL SENIOR LEAGUE GAME SUMMARIES FOR 9/17
Game 1: Charles E. Morgan Termite and Pest Control Penguins 2, Grounds Keepers Lawn Care
The 21 st season of the ESSHL Senior league kicked off with a bang, as the Caps ran away with the
first tilt by a seven-goal margin. While the Pens tried to find their hockey legs, the Caps were
good to go from the jump. Captain Pat Trick laid the hammer down with alacrity, scoring a first
period natural hatty on precisely three shots, winding up with four goals and two assists for the
game. Keith Hagler and James Haley had a goal and an assist apiece; Zach Webb, Robbie
Washington and Local Hero Dean Dedicatoria each tickled the twine; Jenny Hagler and Julian
Dedicatoria each picked up helpers. For the Pens, Captain Zach “General” Mills and Mr. Tease,
Matthew Teasley, found the back of the net. Mills, Ray Schreffler, TR Hoyt and Wayne Ayer
Game 2: Blues 2, EZ Loan Bruins 6
During the off season, Captain Mark Stapleton decided that he didn’t trust anyone under 30
(i.e., lost his mind) and drafted accordingly. The youngest buck on the roster is thirty-one, folks.
It didn’t take a young Bruins team long to be able to outrun wisdom and cruise to a four-goal
win. Captain Donnie Williams, the Smooth Criminal, scored two goals and two assists while up
and coming star CJ Jones registered a “pace yourself” hat trick. Tayler Parks scored a goal and
two assists; Chris Potter picked up a helper. Scott Millikin and Danny Tweedy scored the Blues’
markers; Danny Miller and Wes Stapleton assisted. More importantly, no broken bones, heart
attacks or strokes occurred on the blueshirts’ roster.
Game 3: Delmarva Soil and Concrete Red Wings 5, Charles E. Morgan Termite and Pest Control
The Pens started to gel during their second affair, but it wasn’t enough to outlast the Wings,
who came away winners of the best game of the day. Captain Brandon Stapleton, The
Huntsman, fielded arguably the most balanced team this season, and it shows. Solid in all three
zones, the Wings held their ground when General Mills put the Pens on his back. Stapleton
recorded a two goal, two assist game; Preston Shover rang up two goals; Guy Shover picked up
a goal and an assist. For the Pens, The General produced two goals and an assist; TR Hoyt
scored a goal; Ray Johnson and Mr. Tease picked up helpers.
Game 4: Grounds Keepers Lawn Care Capitals 4, Blues 0
Appropriately enough, it was Ol’ Plugalong, Guy Parks, who registered the first shutout of the
ESSHL season, as Mark Stapleton’s geriatric jamboree somehow managed to improve upon their
first game and receive a goose egg for their effort. Though they managed to hold the mighty
Pat Trick to just one goal, James Haley, Keith Hagler and Robbie Parker picked up the slack and
sealed the deal for the Caps. Parker added a helper, while Zach Webb produced two.
Game 5: EZ Loan Bruins 3, Delmarva Soil and Concrete Red Wings 6
To close the day’s slate of games, the Red Wings spread their, well, wings, and sailed past the
Smooth Criminal’s Bruins for a two-win Sunday. Although the Bs managed to contain The
Huntsman for the most part, Preston Shover, father Guy and Jesse West were happy to oblige in
using any open court given to them. The younger Shover came away with two goals and an
assist; West scored twice; Michael Vargas and Autumn Shover each put the biscuit in the
basket; Adrian Clark, Matthew Sullivan and the Huntsman chipped in assists. For the Bruins, CJ
Jones netted two markers, while Donnie Williams added one. Devon Corbin picked up a helper.
