-North Hollywood, CA
The inaugural game for team LGK looked nothing like a pre-season game for a team that had never played together. zgold9915 opened the scoring when he received a stick to stick pass from forward Vortex and buried it five hole, 4 minutes into the first period. 90 seconds later Defenseman Kosher Hamm poked checked a puck away from the Scorpian forward as he tried to carry the puck into the LGK zone, he then skated on sides and passed to CheezNCrakerz96 (aka Peter Harrold) who was streaking up the opposite boards where he beat the goalie with a wrist shot glove side. LGK had a chance to widen their lead but Defensemen James Jewett was robbed by the quick right leg of the Scorpion netminder after Jewett had broken in all alone on the left side and had the goalie out of position with the backhand shot short side. The Scorpions rallied around the effort by their goaltender and answered with the next two goals of the game.
A second period power play goal by Vortex gave LGK the lead at 3-2 but the defense would not hold and the Scoripians answered back with a goal off a two on one to even the contest. Defenseman Aaron Arak (who as of now; has the best looking girlfriend on the team) had the hit of the game during the middle of the second period. Scorpion Forward #14 tried to make a move to gain access to the zone and was stood up and denied by Arak who showed no interest in the slow-motion move and instead chose to take out the body.
The start of the third period opened with the Scorpions winning the draw but a quick steal by K. Hamm and a great series of cycles by LGK ended with a very athletic backhand goal by zgold9915 while the defense was draped allover him. The Scorpions would answer with another goal off a 2 on 1 that beat goalie Romik “The Postman” Rostomyan blocker side.
Team LGK found themselves with the puck and a great opportunity to score late in the third period but Gold’s one-timer off the pass from K Hamm hit the post. LGK regain possession but an ill advised backhand pass by Hamm lead to a 3-2 break for the Scorpions who finished the play with a slap shot from the right circle.

Team LGK Notes: Forward zgold9915 and Forward ElkHockey both made their roller hockey debuts and looked very solid on the hard surface.
