On Friday night, March 27, the LABBB staff played a street hockey game vs. the Lexington High School hockey team for a LABBB fundraiser. This was not a pick up hockey game, it was serious street hockey consisting of two 30 minute periods. The LABBB staff were motivated to win!! Four years ago the LABBB staff lost a close game vs. the Lexington High School Hockey team after they were winning for more than two thirds of the game but just could not keep up until the end. This year was different. The LABBB staff took the early lead and kept the momentum going throughout the entire game. The High School team was clearly surprised.
The LABBB staff took an early 3-0 lead behind the solid goal-tending of Matt Bencal for the first half. Paula Rizzo started in net for the second half of the game for the LABBB staff and let in an early goal but she regained her composure and played consistently for the rest of the game. The LABBB staff pulled ahead by 6 goals and never looked back. It ended by a 12-5 win by the LABBB staff. Thank you to everyone who help out that evening. It was a fun event and we look forward to it next year!
