PDX Ball Hockey represented well at this past weekends tourney up in Everett, WA. After going undefeated in group play (4-0), Portland HC earned a bye into the semi-finals. It must be noted that the boys beat 2 of the Seattle Teams during group play. Awaiting them in the semi’s were Denny’s Little Heroes, who scored a bunch of goals in their respective group. Defense would reign supreme, as Portland HC put a ton of pressure and never allowed Denny’s to get into rhythm. Final score: Portland HC 3 Denny’s Little Heroes 1. On to the finals. A rematch was in the works against the Oreo Cakesters whom Portland HC played in their first game. After a long day of hockey, Portland HC ran out of gas and lost 8-4. Great job by Josh, James, Pascal, Adam, Joe and Bob. And props to James and Pascal making the all-division team and Pascal for making the all tournament team. Full details are here.
Pick Up is on Wednesday, June 22 @ 5:45PM. Bring a white/dark shirt. Beers at the Florida Room after.

With the #1 selection in the 2011 PDX Ball Hockey League Entry Draft, Bill McCreary’s All Stars select from Williamstown, Vermont, Kyle Laggner. So began the draft this past Saturday. The selection of Laggner first overall defied the odds and left the draftniks stunned. But then again how would McNinny get to the games? His big wheel is in the shop and it is a long walk from the SE. Check out the full team rosters here. Regular season begins Saturday, so for those entered in the draft your captain will be contacting you shortly. Looking forward to a great inaugural season.
Pick up on this Saturday, April 2 @ 10AM. Please note the earlier time. This is the final pickup in order to be eligible for the upcoming draft to be held later that day. Also, in order to be eligible for the draft your league fees must be paid by April 1. You can go to the link on the website and pay via PayPal, but if you prefer to pay me with a check or cash on Saturday that is fine, but you must communicate this to me. We have had a great response as we embark on our inaugural season and are trying to finalize the players list.
