Winter Scrimmage #4

Birmingham Ice Arena - Birmingham 1st 2nd 3rd Final
Novi FireCats 1 1 1 1 1 1 6
Birmingham Rangers 0 0 0 0


For the second time in three nights, Drew and his Novi FireCats teammates faced off against the Birmingham Rangers, this time in a scrimmage. Drew's former goalie, Blake, would be getting the start in net tonight, after playing the majority of the previous game in a relief role.

The first period got off to a good start or the FireCats, as they scored the games opening goal on a slap shot that snuck past the Rangers goalie two and half minutes after the opening faceoff. The two teams would trade quality scoring chances during the rest of the period, but the goaltending was up to the task. The FireCats kept attacking though, and they persistence paid off with their second goal of the period, after they tapped the puck in following a scramble in front of the net. That would be the final goal of the period, as the FireCats would take the 2-0 lead into the first intermission.

The second period was similar to the first, as Novi once again got on the board first, making it a three nothing game. This time the goal came on a 2 on 1 breakaway, with some nice give and go passing. The Rangers switched goalies midway through the period, and the FireCats greeted the new net-minder with an onslaught of shots. They finally managed to sneak one past, on a shot from the circle that found it's way through a crowd. That goal would make it a 4-0 game, and that would be the score when the period ended.

In the third period the FireCats took advantage of one of the games few power plays, as they got another 2 on 1 opportunity, ending the power play shortly after it began. With just under five minutes remaining, the FireCats would score the games final goal, as they coasted to a 6-0 victory. Way to go FireCats!
