Friday Knights
4/16 2001 Game Result
Opponent: Nitro

Result: Knights win 1-0

The Friday Knights opened the season with a 1-0 victory against "Nitro", who self-destructed ... Although the score doesn't reflect it, there was NEVER A DOUBT as to the outcome ... Nitro was never really in the game at all .... the whole evening was more like a practice than a game but still the Knights worked hard and earned the victory - their first towards their defense of the Troy Senior C Championship ...   Despite a foot injury Steve (Scotty Bowman) Thomas (#7) of the "Salsa Line" ended up with the only goal on the score sheet [see Scotty celebrating with the score sheet in the after-game photo attached]. Gary Rochon (#8) was given the lone assist. This may be the first (and only) time that Thomas leads the team in scoring ... nonetheless he was given "Star of the Game" for honors for Game and celebrated with "Extra Salsa" ....   In a related story - Joey was seen with his lower lip extended out a foot or so in a huge post-game pout after losing his season openner 6-0 .. JOEY!!!! (he may ask to be made a free agent soon!!!)     Scotty Bowman out ...I gotta go crank up my snow-blower and get my money's worth out of it ...
