Broomball League party
As always The ABL Party
was a great time for all! The BIG winners this year were the
girls. Jen took the winner and "show" places in the
calcutta. Cindy walked away with a new set of golf clubs, and
Layne grabbed the winning horse in the "draw" pool. Kirk
Barton took home what ever prizes were left over!
There was plenty of FREE draft beer, soda & delicious food catered by the Full Moon.
The ABL would like
to thank Gary, Tadd, Adam and all other helpers, for putting on a
Tadd and Adam and
Full Moon Staff thank you for your hospitality throughout the year!
To All the Ice
helpers this year - Thank You!
A special Thanks
goes out to Gary for all you do for the league!
Gary Going over the racing odds
and the winner is Jen!
Nic is just happy to be here!
Get - R - Done Dave!
Can Kirk talk Cindy out of her club?
...no Cindy took home the whole bag!
February 24, 2005 - HIG
3 - Frostbite 2
After trailing 2-1, JD Jr. ties it up in the second half and then blasts
in the gamer in OT.
Excellent game by these 2 teams, both capable of going the distance.
Iron Clad 5 - Labatt 0
Much better game than the score reflects. 1-0 at the half with the Blues
just unable to find the back of the net. 5th goal came as the last minute
was winding down. Appears as a mercy, but was a hard played game for a
full 50 minutes.
February 23, 2005 -
2 - American 1
Close call for ATS with a controversial goal and killing off a game ending
4 on 2 against a short handed American Tree team playing without their
regular goalie and another key player out with an injury.
McCann's 9 - Poulin
Ah, the suffering is over for PR. Time to build for the future.
Both winners advance to league semis on Saturday.

the President's Cup:
Copied from The Outlaw's website
The Oswego Outlaws
recently participated in the 2005 Adirondack Broomball President's cup
tournament February 19th & 20th in Glens Falls NY. The Tournament is a
4 on 4, short ice tournament
with two 20 minute periods.
On an outdoor rink the Outlaws played their first game of the tournament
at 1:45pm against HIG (Adirondack) for a 3-2 Win. Outlaw goals being
scored by Robb Crisafulli, Mike Thompson & Bob Schadt.
The Next game was a 4:45pm start time against Poulin Roofing (Adirondack),
with a 10-0 win, goals being scored by Jack Pascarella (3 goals 2
assists), Russ Crisafulli (2 goals , 4 assists), Robb Crisafulli (1 goal,
3 assists), Gary Bowhall (1 goal, 2 assists), Brendan Benson, Dan Henner
& Bob Schadt all putting up goals for the Outlaws!
The 10 goals scored the Outlaws bumped Iron Clad (Adirondack) for the 2nd
place team slot.
Sunday morning start at 11:45, the Outlaws played the Time Warner Ice Rats
(Syracuse) for a 5-0 Win.
Goals being scored by Robb Crisafulli (2 goals), Dan Henner (2 goals) and
Russ Crisafulli (1 goal, 3 assists).
On to the Semi Finals against the American Tree (Adirondack).
The game was scoreless until just before the half, when Mike Thompson let
loose from center Ice
to score for the Outlaws!
Oswego took the win with a 5-1 score.
Scoring for the team was Mike Thompson (1 goal), Russ Crisafulli (2
goals), Robb Crisafulli (1 goal, 2 assists),
Barry Sharkey (1 goal).
The Championship game was played against the Adirondack Tree Surgeons
(Adirondack) with a 15 minute break for the Outlaws.
Outlaws took the lead with a goal scored by Russ Crisafulli, and another
by Russ Crisafulli before the half, left the Outlaws with a 2-0 lead into
the 2nd half of the game. Russ Crisafulli racking up another goal for the
Hat trick in the game and Robb Crisafulli ( 1 goal, 2 assists) scoring an
empty netter to end the game with a 4-1 final score!!
Some amazing saves by goal tender, Rick Crisafulli ensured the Wins for
Congrat's to the Outlaws for a GREAT tournament!
February - Welcome to the Adirondack Broomball President's Cup Tournament
President's Cup Recap
Oswego Outlaws 5-0 +23GD (Goal Differential).
As predicted, they were out to prove that they were the team to beat after
underachieving last year, here and in Plattsburg. Dominated on Sunday 5-0,
5-1 & 4-1. #88 Captain Russ Crisafulli takes home the hardware and
"Most Outstanding Player" scoring the first three goals in the
2nd Adirondack Tree Surgeons 4-1 +19GD
Not as solid without Timmy in net. Narrow wins over a short-handed Full
Moon team, a penalty riddled Massena and a close come from behind over HIG.
Bench was deep, teaming up with 4 from the Frostbite. Maybe a little too
3T Home Improvement Gallery 2-2 +5GD
Unable to hold a 4-2 lead against ATS on Sunday to go to the finals. New
keeper a little shaky in net but continuing to improve each game. 21 PIM
(penalties in minutes) in first three games, but none in their semifinal
game, which perhaps kept them in it. No surprise doing as well as they
3T American Tree 2-2 -2GD.
As Bino noted, Coach Bunns & company made this team a contender.
Strong leadership and only 9 PIM pushed this team to the semis. Eliminated
Iron Clad early on Sunday, shutting them out in regulation and in the
first OT. Their tourney team had no weaknesses on the ice.
5T Iron Clad 2-1 +7GD.
Throw the W-L & GD out the window with this tourney's format. Zero
goals against in all 3 regulation games and OT. Tally first, in the 2nd
OT, w/o goalies, missed several empty netters then gave up the next 2, in
a 5 minute, most goals, tie breaker against American. Sunday's team much
weaker than Saturday's team w/o Mitchell. Paco's still gotta be shaking
5T Time Warner Ice Rats (Syracuse) 2-2 -1GD.
Adjusted well to 4 on 4, short ice, outdoor brooms. Experienced veterans
could have used a little more depth. 2 W's handed to them by Beamers, one
being a lame forfeit for which the director mustered up a scrimmage for
them. Pleasure to have them attend.
5T The Full Moon 1-2 -3GD.
Combo FM/Labatt team with no surprises other than keeping it close against
ATS in their opener starting with 3 players and holding off an early 4 on
2. Like IC, only 3 PIM in all 3 games.
5T Open Net (Massena) 1-3 -9GD.
No shocker here - 36PIM. Adapted to the 4 on 4 outdoor ice quickly, but
not to the no checking/no swearing tournament rules. 21PIM (that's only 14
minutes w/o) in their opener, including a triple minor, gave them no
chance against American's 5-0 mercy game.
9 Poulin Roofing 0-3 -16GD.
18PIM didn't help these guys any. Surprise entry from the league's 2-10
team. Captain Steve-O just loves this sport. Keep going guys...
10 Beamers 0-3 -21GD.
Can't even give them their official 9T finish after showing up in monkey
suits and then dropping a forfeit later that day. No business entering
that unprepared, but the league looks forward to working with them on an
expansion team for the 2006 season.
Excellent weather, good ice and a well run venue made this the biggest and
best ABL tourney yet. Great job by all those that officiated, especially
when getting together, after a whistle, and trying to make the proper

Cup - Sunday, 20 February 2005 -
Congratulations to the Oswego Outlaws,
the 2005 President's Cup Champions!
to the runners up -
McDermott's/Adirondack Tree Surgeons - Nice job all weekend, and
during your regular season!
Probably the best game
all day was the game between Iron Clad and American Tree Service.
This game was all tied up at 0-0 at the end of regulation play. It
remained tied at the end of the first overtime period. The only way
that either team would score, was to pull the Goalies, for the second
overtime! Great job both teams, especially the Goalies.
American Trees did eventually pull out the win, only to run out of gas
against the Outlaws!
Penalty Shot in the
second overtime actually hits the back side of the net. However,
American Trees do win in the 2nd OT.

from the opening game of the President's Cup 2005
Full Moon team showed up with just THREE players and a goalie!
After Chris Howe was seated with a penalty, the Moon was down to
just two players, and their goalie. Adam had to come out from
working behind the bar to help. Dan Hewitt scores for the
Moon, and the goalie was OUTSTANDING! (Hire that guy for next
year!) All in all, that was a great game played by both
teams! The Full Moon did a fantastic job, keeping it a close

- Full Moon Team! Jim celebrated by announcing his retirement after
36 years of playing broomball!
As a good former Sunnyside RAT (and Homestead player), Kirk Barton helped
Jimmy celebrate, by scoring two goals for the Full Moon! Full Moon
scoring ends at 6 for the young guns, and 6 with one unofficial goal for a
total of 7 for the Old Guys!

February 14, 2005 - We are down to the last week of regular
games before the play off and the pressure is building. Remember
we are out here playing to have fun. Let's not get to carried away
with the game. We do not need to embarrass ourselves or others in front
of family and friends. Let's have a nICE finish to the 2005 Season.
February 13, 2005 - Game scores being posted on the message
Full Moon team had their NET full all weekend. However, they
did manage a couple of scores. Chris "the Young Gun"
Howe scored and Dan Hewitt also got one. We are giving Paco a
unofficial score, as the spectators and players, believe his
rocket-shot ripped a whole thru the back of the net (but was not
counted.) With one game to go the tally is Old Guys 5 and the
Young Guns 6 goals.
February 12, 2005 - nICE job to everyone this week in getting the
rink back into playing condition. Between
the warm weather and the snow storm there was a lot of work!
February 6, 2005 - The Full Moon looked like the old Moon with Both
the Barton Boys playing. Keith
will do anything to keep his jersey for another year! With
Scott Howe and Jimmy Riley coaching the team looked good in defeat.
February 5, 2005 - The Full Moon Team would like to thank
Aron & Bubba (goalie) for
diving up from Scranton PA. to play today. It is nice to see
some dedicated Broomball players. We appreciate you guys
filling out our roster.
February 2, 2005 - McCann's 3-1 over American Tree.
American unable to
capitalize on short handed McCann's w/o their goalie.
Iron Clad vs Frostbite 3-3 tie.
IC coughs up 3-1 lead
with 10 minutes to go, yet holds on for a tie down 4 on 2 with 2 guys
(Turcotte & Ingalls - interference) in the box in OT.
February 1, 2005 - Corrected Standings up to
30 Jan 05. Frostbite
and HIG are currently tied for 2nd place in the Northern Division with
7 points each. Iron Clad and McCann's are tied for first in the
Southern Division. Tie breaker rules will come into effect, if
needed, for final standings and playoff positions.

WIN! Paco scored one, Jimmy Riley scored two (just missing a
hat trick), Kirk Barton added another, and
Tommy D. scores again!
Old Guys win
5-2 over the Devils!
Stranahan had the game of the year in goal.
Scott Howe had
an assist or two, and played an outstanding defensive game. Kevin
Kingsley also had a great game on defense, and almost score with his
"heat-seeking-moisture missile!" Dave Rubado played his
heart out on both the offensive line and the defensive lines. This
my fellow Broomballers is what happens when you put beer on the line
with the Old Guys!

results Coach Bobby Beard did all
he could do with the Old Timers, but in the end, the Big Uglies came
out with a win over the Full Moon / Britton's Old Guys. In Wednesday
Nights other game Dango's eliminated the Red Devils. Breaking
News - Full Moon has challenged
the Devils to a BEER game Monday night at 6:15! No reason to end
the season, the Ice is still here!
Feb 04 - The
Full Moon / Britton's Old Guys make the playoffs for the first time in
their 3 year history together! They win a close one over Curtis
Lumber (2-1) with a two goal performance by Kirk Barton! Barton's
second goal coming with less than 30 seconds remaining in the
game. With this win, the FMBOG improve to three wins, one more
than last year!
Today's match-ups have
the top 2 teams in each division, from last years standings,
playing against each other, and the bottom 2 teams from each
division as well. Incredibly, none of these 4 games will have any
significance in the division standings, for Big Uglies and Dango's
clinched division titles on Saturday, Clad and Surgeons have 2nd
places locked up as do Labatt and American have holds on 3rds. The
only major factor might be Clad and Surgeons determining 3rd and 4th
overall finishes for next years seedings, which would take an ATS
win combined with an IC regulation loss, though a lot can
change from year to year.

The Full Moon/Britton's came close to a "Miracle on Ice"
today as they had a 2-0 lead on Iron Clad! The Clad came back to
tie it up and pulled away. The Old Guys did not let them get too
far ahead, staying with them to the end! The Final score was
10-6. Kirk Barton had a "Hat Trick", Kevin Kingsley
scored a couple and Scotty Howe scored
one to round out the scoring for the Old Guys!
Sat. 31 January -Full
Moon/Britton's Old Guys post their first "W" with an
impressive 3-1 win over Curtis Lumber. These
2 teams will likely be battling it out for the 8th and final playoff
spot, in a re-match, on
the final day of the regular season.
A re-match of last
years championship game and somewhat of a re-run. Iron
Clad 2-1 in OT over ATS, all 3 goals arguably disputed, but both teams
knowing it's all part of the game, showed
nothing but class when the game was over. Sporty hand shakes, hearing
"Good game", "Good luck",
"Have a good
season", etc., was a moral victory, in my eyes, for the good of our
physical game, with a little heckling that even carried over into
the bar. Great
Red Devils give the
rink it's 6th consecutive dose of H2O in as many days, why is
this daily scheduling thing looking so easy?
2 Feb 04 -The
boys booked the rink for a little hockey again this year.
Figured it couldn't
hurt anything, didn't interfere with brooms and best
of all, the rink gets one more sheet of ice that can only
help later in the season. It
all adds up, thanks boys!
1 Feb 04 - The
Pepsi Tourney is only one weekend away.
Who's in? Who's out?
Who needs players? Who
wants to play?
There's gonna be a
goalie shortage with BJ & Timmy in FL that weekend.
Uglies & American Tree: Captains
and C-committee, please get in touch with each other to establish a
daily maintenance schedule for the week 2/2-2/8.
Schedule is on the wall
at the Moon. Amer Tree has picked some nights already but it's up
to both teams to agree on.
Please put down names
for each day for all to see who's doing all the work.
Red Devils: Chris,
John, actually anybody, Adam says there has to be covers over the
junction boxes ASAP.
Another fire inspection
on Tues. If
anyone can take care of this Mon or Tues, let me or Adam know.
Also, one light is out.
Dango's and Curtis:
Please see John Ingalls
or myself about the balance of your league fee.

Don't want to jinx
us, but Tadd said the Full Moon team did a
great job on the ice tonight to start off the week.
Baden balls will be in
tomorrow. A fluorescent orange color, official size & weight. Will
put them into play starting Wed 1/28/04. They are $25 each, no
guarantee, they wont take them back. This is the same ball we had
problems with 4 years ago with the bladders not holding air.
Am told they are
holding up much better this year, use at your own risk. Balls have been
a never ending problem.
Shoes are also expected
in tomorrow for those waiting on 6's or 8's.

The weekend games
went off with out a hitch again this week. The biggest problem right
now is that it has been extremely cold! Better than a warm thaw and
no Ice! Thanks goes out to the guys who made ice Saturday
night! On Sunday, the playing condition of the ice was
excellent! From what I have been hearing, these guys used barrels of
water to lay down the ice. NICE

games Thurs night:
IC 7 - FM 3
BU 5 - Dangos 4
Not the best of weather
but we got both games in. 2nd
game must have been a real beauty because no one would leave the
sidelines to fetch balls.
Seriously though, we
lost one ball Wed night and 2 in the 2nd game Thurs night.
Bringing your kids on Saturday? Challenge them to go find those big
orange Easter eggs.
With Cindy out for the
1st week (Bday party), Jenn questionable right now and not hearing from
anyone else yet,

So far, a great start
by Big Uglies and American Tree working out their ice maintenance
schedule for Mon & Tues. Teams
will be recognized for doing their share, as well as not, however these
emails are not intended to defame any
of the teams or players in our league when examples are given.
Which brings up my next
point about starting games on time.
Saturday's 12:30 game
started at approx 12:32 as players were just arriving and running on to
the ice. These
games were scheduled at noon last year and moving them to 12:30 doesn't
appear to matter. However,
thanks to Lou Campbell who runs the Korbel Short Ice Tournament with a
first prize of $4000.00, (yes
4 grand), we will be able to adapt to some of their rules made
for 4 on 4 short ice broomball. (I
will forward everyone the email he sent me when I get time) but
starting with Saturday's 12:30 games, if a team has a total of 3
(three) players at game time, the game will begin. Thus
4 on 2 (w/goalies) can be an official start. Reason being, "If
one team knows that they are a stronger team, then
playing with three is not a disadvantage. Having only two players
is and can change the direction of the game". I
know some players are always reluctant to change, but the rule only
we have been punishing
players in the past for showing up on time by making them wait for late
starting times this year have been moved forward, so there should be
less excuses. Keep
in mind that the new mercy rule may shorten games up by 5 minutes as
teams will be getting their notices of this change on Wed & Thurs.
Most all of the work is
done now, and everything has been going smoothly. What
could possibly disrupt such a great start to this 2004 season?
18 Jan 04
-The 2004 Season began Saturday the 17th of January. Things went
pretty smooth for most! Things were not so smooth for the Full Moon
/ Britton's Old Guys! The Big Uglies dominated their game.
complete Check out the 2004 schedule
Great job by Mike
Stranahan getting the 50_50 going! It's nice to see different faces
out selling those tickets. Who's next? We sold $120 worth of
tickets, raising $60 for our league. The first $300 raised will be
donated to Bay Ridge for flooding our rink. Hopefully, we can
continue to raise more money for the league to help with the costs of
getting all the snow blowers running properly. Thanks go out to Kirk
Barton and Scott Howe for taking care of getting the snow blowers tuned up
and ready , this investment should last us a few years...
and teams in charge of ice this week, starting Monday 1/19, need to get in
contact with each other to schedule who is doing which days. Iron
Clad flooded Sunday, there was a little snow, so it could be a little
rough and in need of a smoother watering before Wed. I will take care of
painting the centerline. As of Sunday, the hose has to be run from the
cellar until the outside faucets are repaired.
Have a great
season, and make it an ICE week!
