Jokers back in W Column with 2-0 Shutout Win
The Jokers of Doom got a boost from its newest member Steve Looze in a 2-0 shutout win over Pure Chaos. Looze scored the first goal just 27 seconds into the second period after a scoreless first. After a blast from the circle by Ken Herren was stopped by the goalie, Kevin LaPrade picked up the rebound and slid a pass over to Looze between the circles who ripped home a quick wrist shot.
After two periods the Jokers were holding tightly to the 2-1 lead and held the shot advantage 15-11. In the third Rob Kurdy would deflect home an insurance goal off of a flicked pass toward the front of the net, assists went to Jeremy Battye and Looze. Goalie Greg Benoit would turn away all 6 Chaos shots in the 3rd with 17 saves in total to grab his first shutout as a Joker.
Notes: Defenseman Mike Bradigo also made his season debut for the jokers… Captain Jim Brunetti remained sidelined with a foot injury, he is probable for the next game… John Condit and Frank Melillo missed the contest for unspecified reasons.
