forum Replica Roex . If, as you have already said, you would buy an unparalleled Replica Gucci Handbags, take a good look at that forum and contact the salespeople personally to ask ALL the questions before proceeding to a purchase. And if the answers do not convince you, let it go.Of course, Replica Christian Dior Handbags Travolta apologized and the bad drink is over. At least on his part since he recently presented the Ocala Film Festival in Florida.In short, what is undeniable is that the style of Travolta is very personal and, largely, responsible for its success despite its scandals, so if the actor has chosen Breitling as his favorite Replica Roex Watches, we will not be the others That we deny to Travolta the great personality that transmits its aspect. And it seems that Victoria has managed to go a step further, getting her look and that of Replica Watches are referent, not for the general public, but for other celebrities so the relevance of what they wear is even greater.

(4)Les Rouuuges vs Mighty Drunks(8)

Y.Dube and Mighty Drunks pull away late for double up win

Like a lingering cold, Les Rouuuges just wouldn't go away. The Mighty Drunks felt that they couldn't let go of a given situation presented in front of them. By having pretty much all of their players versus a side that barely had change ups, it was only normal that they felt confident for the win. However, this contest was far-from convincing.  It took a third period surge for Mighty Drunks to distance themselves. Y.Dube was one of a few pieces that made it happen as the sniper struck once in every frame to record a hat trick. Next in line saw M.Beaudry bury a pair as a defenseman, but what made this game memorable was that all of Les Rouuuuges's four goals belonged to A.Henein, who also played as a d-man.

(3)Chaos vs Carnage(9)

Carnage blast Chaos with third period onslaught

For two straight periods, the game looked promising for Chaos. They went ahead 3-2, and had the chance to double the lead only to give up a shorthanded goal instead. Still, things were fine up until the third period began. Then, the flood gates open, and Carnage just kept piling on the goals. Six of their nine tallies came in the final frame alone with the captain F.Pace striking twice along with S.Azzi posting his second while setting up four different teammates. It's been somewhat of Chaos's theme this season to battle hard in the beginning but not able to sustain enough of a pace for the duration of the match. Despite the loss, B.Elbaz, M.Roach and D.Elbaz did most of the damage combining for seven points.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Steve Azzi of Carnage. While most of Carnage's players chipped in with a point or two, S.Azzi was way ahead of everyone accumulating six that included a pair of markers.

(2)Les Raymonds vs Winter Soldiers (5)

Winter Soldiers pull away-from Raymonds in third period

After Les Raymonds evened the score in the second period, the Winter Soldiers responded with three straight by the third to pull away for a 5-2 victory. C.Kakivelis struck early, and J.Mckenzie took advantage of a power play only minutes later coming through with a very big goal. That was McKenzie's first of two with the second one feeding an empty cage. The game saw a seesaw battle for two frames but that all changed when the game mattered the most in the final fifteen minutes. The Winter Soldiers got better as the game went, and ultimately got what they deserved.

(4)Horsemen vs Golden Knights(5)

Third period scare nearly haunts Golden Knights

Wins aren't coming easy for the Golden Knights, who nearly endured a haunting finish. Down 5-1 after two periods, the Horsemen nearly staged a comeback that would have left long term psychological ramifications for the Golden Knights. Instead, despite giving up three in a row, the Golden Knights fought to kill off five long minutes to secure a nail biter. For a rare time this season, a full roster dressed that saw five different player's find the back of the net. And even though he didn't score, R.Ricard had a major role in the win as the skilled forward set up three teammates. The Horsemen dropped the ball in the second period and early in the final frame where they couldn't get anything going.

(1)HBHA Masters 37+ vs Team Haiti(3)

Tight checking game ends with Team Haiti on top

Both sides did an excellent job closing off the shooting lanes which explained a very low scoring affair. After continuing a 1-1 stalemate heading into the third, J.Benel came through for Team Haiti. The HBHA Masters were the first to strike early in the game but found themselves snake bitten unable to get a second goal. What made this result remarkable for Team Haiti was that they did it with only eight players dressed. D.Vericain was responsible for two big plays that included his clubs first goal and the set up for Benel's winner.

(6)Kentucky Blue vs Hellfish(1)

T.Oliveira knows how to finish

T.Oliveira took his scoring prowess to another level on Wednesday night netting an impressive five goals to help thrash the Hellfish. However, his madness only took over as of the second period. After snapping a 1-1 tie on the power play, T.Oliveira buried four more as the only player to score for the two sides from-that point on. Perhaps the Hellfish should have paid more attention to Oliveira, but by the time they would have figured it out, this contest would have been done with. L.DeCubellis and A.Franceschini chipped in with a pair of assists each while P.Delli Colli recorded the win in net allowing only one goal on 21 shots.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Tyson Oliveira of the Kentucky Blue. The forward had an extraordinary night bagging five straight goals en route to a 6-1 win over the Hellfish.

(3)Les Raymonds vs Kentucky Blue(8)

Kentucky Blue use 4 goal first period to blow by Les Raymonds

Throughout two periods, the Kentucky Blue held a 6-1 lead on Les Raymonds. They scored four of those goals in the opening period and only gave up their first marker by the later stages of the second frame. Until that point, six different players got a taste at finding the back of the net with James Tutino being one of those players who went on to add a couple more to complete his hat trick by the third. The Kentucky Blue played the night before coming off a convincing 6-1 win and showed no signs of slowing down in this contest with Les Raymonds.

P.Turturici and P.Corbin shine in goaltending duel

Les Carmoni fell to Les Reds by a 2-1 shootout but were able to respond in what was another outstanding goaltending display. Only three total goals went in out of the four periods. The two net minders combined for 53 saves with P.Corbin recording a shutout in the second encounter. After settling for a 1-1 draw in the opening contest, F.Nasser was the only player to figure out the breakaways. The slick defenseman used his long reach to wrist a perfect shot past Corbin. The second match had a similar reflection of the first one. The only difference being that only one goal was scored courtesy of J.Meynard. Les Carmoni took their slight 1-0 lead early in the second period and never looked back to even the score with Les Reds.

1 Timer completes comeback en route to a pair of wins

If the first handful of minutes was an indication of what was to come, then the 1 Timer would have endured a long night. Instead, they got their act together and mounted a remarkable comeback to take the opening contest 4-2. The relentless effort was led-from every single player that saw four different goal scorers get involved. As much as they merited the win, the 1 Timer wanted more than to just sit back in the second contest. And it showed as they continued-from where they left off adding four more goals. In this particular case, S.Gravel provided much of the offense striking twice while setting up the game winner. The Chic Choc started both matches on the right track but were nowhere to be seen in the second periods where they gave up six of their eight goals.

The Corporation double dip for six clean points

Neither side would argue that their goaltenders gave them a chance to win. And while both the Tocas and the Corporation generated plenty of quality chances, it was only a question of time before something had to give. Tied 1-1 after one period, G.DeMarinis was able to figure out how to get the better of G.Castilloux. His tally put the Corporation in front 2-1 which happened to be just enough for L.Dias to take care of the rest. The second game was not at all a reflection of the first. This time, the Corporation opened the flood gates striking three times in both frames to once again double up their opponent. G.DeMarinis continued his onslaught adding two more tallies while J.Scalia had the most points assisting twice along with a goal. Despite grabbing both wins, the Corporation couldn't afford to let go of the gas pedal against a side that kept pressing all game long.

Vitamin C bring Degenerates back to earth

Even though the Degenerates took the opening contest by a 5-2 score, the Vitamin C decided that enough was enough for the unbeaten side. Perhaps the major reasons for the downfall was due to the energy and compete level put forth by the Vitamin C. In the first eight minutes alone of the second contest, F.Catanzariti and J.DiMarco each scored twice to put the Degenerates on their heels. At that point, there was almost no way the Vitamin C would allow the Degenerates to battle back, even though they applied plenty of pressure. B.Madonis knew he had to be sharp and did a brilliant job frustrating some of his opponents making one key save after the other.

Hustlers & Punishers square off in battle of the heavyweights

When giants collide, expect some tremors. Tonight's battle involved arguably the top two teams to beat in the first division. And while they all have the attributes required as hockey players, defence and goaltending dominated the stage in both games. The first encounter saw both sides trade only one goal in regulation time and one goal in the shootout resulting in a 2-2 draw. With that contest out of the way, the second meeting would follow the blue prints of the previous match. The only difference being was that the Hustlers took advantage of a power opportunity. The match was levelled at one goal apiece when P.Assadi struck for his second with the man advantage. Now, many would assume that the Punishers would get at least one more goal considering how much fire power and time they had. Unfortunately for them, they just couldn't find enough of that space going up against a smothering defence and stellar ball stopper in C.Stavriadis .Both sides can equally thank the net minders in tonight's case. F.Russo did all he possibly could to give the Punishers a better outcome.

(1)Punishers vs Hustlers (2)

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Costa Stavriadis of the Hustlers. The Hustlers net minder put on quite a clinic on Monday night by somehow limiting the Punishers to only two goals in four periods.

(2)Butchers vs HC Mutts(6)

N.DeGregorio earns five points as HC Mutts roll over Butchers

N.DeGregorio did pretty much what he wanted accumulating five points versus the Butchers on Sunday night. Even though the HC Mutts had barely enough players, it surely didn't show. They built an enormous 4-0 lead before conceding a late second period goal. The Butchers did strike early in the final frame but couldn't find a way to pull within one. R.Mercandante eased all doubts by posting his second to confirm the victory. As much as the score appears to be lopsided, P.Delli Colli can be thanked for it as the net minder was sharp throughout the entire game for the HC Mutts.

(5)Fatal Demons vs Lynx(9)

Captain J.Lang keeps on scoring, Lynx catch Demons off guard early

With many story lines to this game, nobody can argue a great start along with a furry of goals by their captain made the difference. The Lynx took just over five minutes striking three times to blow the game wide open. The first two tallies came-from J.Mason, and the third goal by J.Lang, who went on another scoring rampage bagging four straight for his team. Despite their slow start, the Fatal Demons kept reminding the Lynx that they weren't done. They actually pulled within two goals and nearly narrowed the gap to one if not for a brilliant save by S.Catalano. By then, the clock kept winding down to its final moments where the Lynx were able to hang on. J.Proulx didn't score but helped make four goals happen in the win.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Nicolas DeGregorio of the HC Mutts. Five out of the HC Mutts six goals had N.DeGregorio's hands involved. The skilled forward scored twice bagging the winner while setting up three different teammates.

(3)P-Ball vs Red Lite(4) O.T Game 3

K.Kuczmarski bats in a beauty to close out series, Red Lite crowned Champions

Trailing by three goals after an ugly first period, the P-Ball rallied to tie the game 4-4 only to see it vanish by overtime. Even though the push was great for the P-Ball, it just wasn't good enough in the end. The sudden death frame was only two minutes old when K.Kuczmarki's incredible eye hand coordination came into play. The Red Lite forward made something that looks so difficult so incredibly easy by batting the ball right past P-O Girouard. Prior to the goal, J.Gagne will be wondering for a while how he missed two golden opportunities to extend the series. The P-Ball captain wasted no time-from the overtime face off creating two very good chances for himself only to get denied twice by C.Lantin. This was the first of three games that could have easily gone either way. Unfortunately for the P-Ball, they didn't get that extra break necessary to make a series of it. Red Lite did the right thing by getting the better start which only put the pressure on their opponents to respond. They got scoring efforts-from five different players that included a sweet back hand breakaway goal-from J.Daoust. In the end, like good teams often do, they find ways to win. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, congratulations go out to Carl Ghilarducci and Red Lite for adding more hardware to their already full trophy cases.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Kevin Kuczmarski of Red Lite. By using his instincts and hand eye coordination, the Red Lite forward batted the series winning goal only two minutes into overtime.

(2)Black Knights vs Red Lite(4) Game 3

Red Lite crowned again as best team in hockey

After only three games in, Red Lite defeated the Black Knights 4-2, to complete a three game sweep and win the Premier division once more. Despite a respectable effort, the Black Knights got deflated in the third period where Red Lite capitalized twice less than a minute apart. J.Provost-Blais snapped the dreaded 2-2 tie for his second with the man advantage, and M.David put the final dagger only moment s later, also for his second that surely provided enough of a lead with eight minutes remaining. Every game was close in this series but the Black knights couldn’t get that timely goal to get any sort of advantage. The saying of good teams always find a way to win surely summed up this series. Red Lite, whether they trail or play with a tie will more often than not find a way to get the job done. Once again, the ball hockey giants proved to everyone how good they really are by winning the Premier division. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, congratulations goes out to Carl Ghilarducci and the rest of Red Lite for capturing the A division title.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Joel Provost-Blais. The forward scored back to back goals that snapped a third period tie along with providing an assist to finish with a solid three point night.

Note that both Red Lite and the Black Knights will be representing Quebec at this years Nationals. Red Lite will be classified as QB1 and the Black Knights will be QB2.The event will take place from August 7 - 13 at Saint John New Brunswick.

Team Slovakia Wins Gold Medal at WC 5vs5 in Pardubice,Cz Republic--

Team Slovakia Wins Gold Medal at WC 5vs5 in Pardubice,Cz Republic-- Three-peat: Slovaks win wild, back-and-forth final.Canada wins silver

Patrik Svitana’s power-play goal with 1:55 left in regulation time broke a 4-4 tie, as the Slovaks won a gold-medal game in which they blew a three-goal lead, then had to come from behind themselves. Michal Hrivnak of Slovakia and Danick Martel of Canada each had two goals and one assist in the game, which Slovakia won 6-4 to “three-peat” as Men’s Ball Hockey World Champions.

 

Svitana’s goal was the first in a tension-filled third period, but the way the game started, it didn’t seem like the third period would be meaningful at all.

Slovakia struck twice before the game was a minute old, and made it 3-0 by the 7:22 mark. Jaroslav Martiniuk got things started just 19 seconds in, charging through the middle and surprising Tim Barlow with a low shot to the blocker side. Then they went right back to the attack and the Canadians couldn’t clear the zone after Lukas Madera fired a shot off the goalpost, with Hrivnak eventually sliding the puck into the net with Barlow down and out. The third goal was on a slapper by Boris Oravec on the power play, and it looked like the game would become a blowout, with the many Slovaks in attendance going crazy.

Just 34 seconds after Oravec’s goal, Remi Laurencelle got the Canadians on the board, beating Petrik five-hole from the left-wing side. Then they went to the power play shortly afterward and it took them just 14 seconds to strike, with Martel firing a blast over tournament MVP Stanislav Petrik’s shoulder.

Barlow and Petrik, who both posted shutouts in their teams’ semi-final wins, had now combined for five goals against in less than nine minutes.

The game settled down for a time after the wild start, but a pair of Slovak penalties late in the second period opened the door for the Canadians to strike twice and take their first lead of the game. On a 5-on-3, Martel’s second of the game tied it, a one-timer set up perfectly by Victor Azevedo. Then 51 seconds later they scored up one man after some nice tic-tac-toe passing finished off by Marcus Power, which thrilled the few Canadian fans in attendance and left the Slovak majority in stunned silence.

They would have something to cheer about before the period was finished, though. With 1:10 left in the middle frame, some pretty passing led to Milan Rampacek firing a ball into the open side, with Barlow having no chance.

Slovakia went hard for the win in the third period, getting several great chances, but after a shaky start, Barlow was now playing great. However, back on their heels, the Canadians took three penalties in a row trying to contain the Slovak push. They had a two-man advantage for a time, and while still up one man, the ball was worked to Svitana at the point, who’s one-time blast went through everybody, and sent the arena into bedlam.

After an empty-net goal from Hrivnak, the Slovak fans, whose emotions had been toyed with all night long, could finally let loose and start celebrating. After the final horn, they serenaded their now three-time ball hockey champions with the chant: “Zlaty hattrick.”

Reactions

Ian Moores (head coach of Canada): I think we had a great tournament. I’ve got a lot of respect for my players, the coaching staff and the Canadian Ball Hockey Association. We represented the country proudly and well. It’s disappointing to come fall short here today, we were tied coming into the third period, it could have gone either way. Overall I think we had a good tournament but going home without the trophy certainly sucks. I think the host committee did an amazing job here. The host city was great, the Czech Republic overall is a great country. They treated us with hospitality.

Jozef Ďuriš (headcoach Slovakia): We came into final with that, we want win it. We had great beginning, we caught Canada in first minutes off-guard, after them, we took the lead 3:0. But whole match was before us. That was confirmed, Canada turned around toi 4:3. But with enourmous will, enthusiasm and patience we turned the game in the end and gain the third title in the row.
