In case you don't speak the Espanol, this weeks game happens to fall on May 5th which is known in many psuedo-hispanic cultures as a holiday celebrating the "unlikely" victory of the Mexican army over the French at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. But it's evolved into any other great holiday tradition to basically include a large consumption of alcohol. Enough history for today..
Previous Game Recap:
We continued our strong start to the 2013 season last weekend with another solid turnout with about 18 people showing up last weekend. The white team won the first game easily, pounding the red 5-1. After the first game the commissioner approved a trade sending himself to the white team and Tim the drunk to the red team. Unfortunately, this tactic didn't seem to improve the red teams play and went on to lose the second game 5-3. Tim did help boost the scoring of the red team but the red team could not shut down the high powered white team offense. After the second romping, teams were jumbled and alliances were broken. The third game was the turnaround for the red team, after listening to a recording of Herb Brooks pre-gold medal game speech. Most of the players stuck around for a fourth game which the red team continued to draw inspiration and tied games at 2-2 with a 5-2 victory.

Who is the SCH IHC?
Since 2011, people have been gathering around the city and burbs to play in an outdoor, inline hockey game. Why outdoor? Why inline? Because it makes the game free! Well, mostly free, we had to purchase a new net because a group of hoodlums stole one. But we are back at full strength with TWO nets.
Now, we're on our third year of playing with a regular weekly game ranging from 10 to 18 players, yeah it's growing. We play with goalies and have subs. All skill levels are welcome for this casual, cheap, and fun hockey experience!
Join us to make 2013 the best year of our Inline Hockey Club yet!
