After a few hours of rest. We got ready for our regular "Battle of Alberta" against the host team the Calgary Inferno. As usual drama showed its ugly head. Calgary lost a player for the game and they decided to import Rod 3.0 from team TOBA. Angry and reluctant the Steel Wheels got on the court in front of a hostile crowed of Calgary supporters. Calgary scored the first goal but Edmonton scored the win. They played better in this game than any other game this weekend. Richard played against Clagarys best and ran around them. Skyler pushed like an animal and controlled the game. As the last seconds clicked off the clock I could see how satisfied the players where winning this game 51-45.
My thoughts on the weekend...at times we played good...at times we played terrible...but we did it as a team. In the last game...they play great! Linda was a shinning star this weekend. In one game she scored back to back to back on turnovers and made us all laugh every time she was out there. She got a pass and almost scored on our own goal! LOL. When she was out there she played as hard as she could and had fun doing it. It was like she calmed us down and made us all recognize why we play this game. Our equipment manager Doug usually takes tons of photos but was so busy all weekend changing Ken and Richards tires I guarantee he will sleep for days when he gets home. Great job Doug! Last but not least Terry and Veronica we miss you! Terry was a member of the Edmonton Club but moved to Calgary this year with the family. He played great and putting him out there felt comfortable, like he never left. He will always be a part of this team and wish him and his family well down south.
I am home now...time for family, food and movies. Have a great long weekend everyone and thanks for reading.
