Tory Jacob recently recovering from a shoulder injury that sidelined him for most of the year, returned last night and helped the Gators cruised to beat Kahoots 14-3 “It was great to finally get back out there and make some moves. I felt good for the most part” said Jacob.
It was one of the most lopsided victories this NAHL season.
Kahoots Coach Todd Forselius screamed in defense. “We have a great record against the Gators, always have, but some times you need to have a realty check every once in a while. A total fluke on an off night.” What is not a total fluke is the fact that Forselius juggles goalies like he’s Mike Kenean.
You can not blame the loss on the Kahoots goalie, he played 2 great periods letting up 5 after the first and 0 in the third, but struggled to find his form in the second period, giving up 9 goals. Gators did all they can do to break his spirit, then in the third, Gates decided to try and break his jock strap with a slap shot, just classless.
Gators candidate for MVP, Brendan “Hotstick” McKiernan was to trying to prove that he belongs on the top line as he matched Tory Jacob point for point on the night. McKiernan could not finish off the hat trick, even after 9 attempts.
Goalie Jason Szerszen was in top form last night, making sure that he skated to every player to introduce himself before each faceoff and a couple during the play. His attempts to get an assist and send a man on a breakaway can be called a “laughing stock” but at least he is willing to pass the puck, right McNeil?
