Another typical night, and one that has played out for several years: smuck team, has no chance to win, starts the hacking and running people when the game is out of hand. Classless parents cheering awful play and unsporsmanlike play because their kid was not good enough. Great idea; lets cheer when someone gets leg checked, tripped, or shoved into the boards for penalties; Real classy. We are talking about Shrewsbury, and their unsavory play tonight in Lynn.
Lets just call out a player right now: # 8 for Shrewsbury. Running around the entire 3rd period, being a total jerk; and, a group of parents cheering every move. With just 24 seconds on the clock, and the Lynn teams seniors on the ice for the first time in the 3rd period (embarrassing blow out) , playing for the last time in there home rink and making 100 games with out a loss.....# 8 is on the faceoff....the puck is dropped and up come a cross check right to the face of SMH # 2. the puck goes to # 6 of SMH and she circles the zone, with # 8 chasing, but unable to catch up; instead, of the way by # 10 SMH on defense is standing on the blue line and # 8 decides she can't catch # 6, so lets just run into # 10, who is not near the puck, Then.... ..here comes # 8, all the way from the blue line on the left side of the ice, and the puck is clear across the rink. She's not heading for the play, or to cover someone, she is heading straight for the Lynn teams best player, who is standing off to the side of the net. Here it comes, its and old story played out over and over against our team.........Checked and kicked from the blindside seconds left........
# 8: you are a jerk ! If my kid did that, she'd be out of hockey. Then the best part: my kid, yep, I'm a quite Lynn guy.......tells me after the game...that # 8 approached her on the very first shift and told here “I'm going to fn kill you.” Of coarse that was not backed up............she would have ended up just like the A Williams kid that tried that.
Bottom line; there should be a super 8 girls division, or some type of segregation; or make it more difficult to get in and cut out the scrummy teams. Teams with talent and class to not play like this. Hingham, AC, Arlington, AP, Lexington, you don't see the BS, and the cheap shots; that stuff is coming in from the bottom dwellers that don;t have a chance. Why should the big teams be subjected to the scrumms that have no prayer, so “they gonna run someone and try to knock them out of the game.”
Seen it over and over and it has to stop; games should go to running time, and get the bottom feeders on the bus home.
BTW...........anyone want to see the play by # 8, its on video..........
PS...........dirtiest, worst bunch in 4 years at SMH is easily the Framingham team.
PPS: power plays are no good when your up by 5, games should end via mercy rule rather than let the scrumm run around and attempt to injure, and the parent cheer them on.
