WELCOME TO OTTAWA'S NEWEST BALL HOCKEY LEAGUE
Capital City Ball Hockey League (CCBHL) is Ottawa's most exclusive invite-only ball hockey league. We play one night only - in Barrhaven on Tuesdays. We value fun, teamwork, fair play and sportsmanship.
In our final game of the season we have the first place Lions taking on the always gritty Saviors. The Lions came out of the gate strong as captain Brock Murray catches SV spare goaltender Collin Jackson taking a nap and snipes one up high. Young gun Austin Perron would follow it up off a perfect play with 87. They would add two more as league assist leader and Ducks super fan Sam Parsonson nets one followed by Perron's second off a nice pass from goaltender Mike Adams. The Saviors would not go down easily as super spare Justin Larose and Jake Clark each pot one to pull within two, 4-2 CCL. Halfway through the second 87 goes off and fires home a natural hat trick offf some great passes from Parsonson and the always cheery Faith Murray. Saviors and CCL would each exchange oen more goal as Larose would pot his second and 87 nets his 5th of the period. Shots were 24-14 CCL at the half with the score 8-3 CCL.
The second period would open strong for SV as Alan Neeff would fire one home from the point. That would be as close as they come as Perron is in on five straight goals from himself and Parsonson, as well as a couple apples from Hannah MacDonnell. The game would finish at 4 minute mark as Faith would ice this game for the 14-4 mercy. Austin Perron finishes first in scoring in the league with 47 goals and 73 pts in 11 games. Sam Parsonson led the league in assists with 27 with his teammates Austin and Brock not far behind at 26 apiece. These two teams will face off next week in the playoffs for what should be an interesting matchup. Don't sleep on the Saviors as they gave CCL a run for their money earlier in the season when they had their full squad.
In what will be a preview on next week's first round playoff matchup we have the always strong Lights Out squad facing a surging Buzzkills team. The game started off with some back and forth action with both teams fighting for supremacy. Sniper Bradley McCarter opens the scoring with a beauty goal to make the score 1-0. Shortly thereafter captain Dan Ballem gets called for a tripping penalty and Buzzkills capitalize as Nevill Carney roofs one top corner to pull ahead 2-0. The period was back and forth with some great plays on both ends but the goaltenders stood tall with Collin Jackson shutting the door in the first period with 19 saves as the period ended 2-0.
Fast forward to the second frame and Lights Out turned up the pace. Less than four minutes in BEAST MODE Andrew Stephens snipes a laser top shelf while coming off the wall to give his team some energy. Speedy Zach Thomas follows it up only a minute later to pull within one. Captain Ballem completes the comeback as he wires it past the Buzzkills goaltender and we have a tie game halfway through the second period. This wakes up Buzzkills as Tim Squires snipes two straight at in less than a minute to put his team ahead 5-3. This was too much for LO to come back from as Lynn Fournelle would finish off a perfect pass from McCarter and he would add one final goal to finish the game 7-3 in favour of the Buzzkills who finish off the season with 4 straight wins. Next week these two teams will face again in a battle to see who can make the finals.
