Day 2, Disabled Hockey Festival: Wings’ Long Saturday Ends With a Tough Loss

After opening the Disabled Hockey Festival with a win, the Wings had a tough Saturday losing in an early game to the Johnstown Sitting Bulls and then played against the Hornets from Chicago and suffered a 3-2 defeat. The Wings will now play for third place against the Sled Wings from Grand Rapids Michigan. In the Chicago game the Hornets jumped out to a 3-0 lead, but the Wings fought back on goals by Hesham ‘E’ Nassar and Robert, the ‘Beast’ Vettese to get within 3-2. With new Wings goalie Iron Mike Reiner stopping everything thrown at him over the next two periods the Wings cut into the lead, but could not get the equalizer.

Wings forward Garret-G-man-Goebel broke in with Hesham late in the second period and after G Man was stoned, Hesham was there to put home the rebound and give the Wings some new life at 3-1. Moments later the Beast had the puck along the boards and ripped a shot on the ice and into the net to bring the Wings to within one goal. But the Hornets’ defense tightened and did not allow the tying goal.

Notes: Iron Mike made several big saves throughout the last two periods, but one in particular stands out when he batted the puck out of the air with the puck ticketed for the top corner.

Tomorrow will rap up the weekend celebrating different abilities and Hockey, here at the New England Sports Center in Marlborough, Massachusetts.
Special thanks to Mike Costantino for his fair and unbiased reporting.
