The First Annual USHL Fall Classic

In a smooth move, the United States Hockey League - one of the primary sources of American college hockey players - has developed a nice, new look on their homepage and has established the USHL Fall Classic with its own website that is title-linked to this post.

With two days worth of games almost behind them there is a bit of news to report on the Future 'Cat front.(for more Future 'Cat information refer to the lower portion of the right hand column of this blog)

We'll start with Matt White. Matt helped spur his Omaha Lancers to a 5-0 rout of the Chicago Steel in their game today by notching the first goal and assisting on the second. It seems thus far that Matt is developing a trend of putting pucks in the net for the boys representing the 'Gateway to the West' team.

Next we'll move to the two from Waterloo - Matt DiGirolamo and Blake Kessel. Matt started for the Blackhawks in their Thursday game but could not hold off the Sioux Falls Stampede. Stopping 21 of 23 shots just was not enough on this night where fellow Future 'Cat, Blake Kessel picked up an assist on the lone goal for my 'favorite town to destroy in Rampage' team. Tonight as Matt platooned, taking his turn on the bench, Blake decided that he wasn't feeling like playing this night either and dropped the gloves just 57 seconds into the game.

Last we'll tag along with Mike Borisenok and his Green Bay Gamblers where Mike capped the victory for the Titletown boys with a shorthanded, empty net goal.

All the boys (well, maybe not Blake as I'm not sure of the USHL rule regarding fighting) will be in action tomorrow from anywhere from noon to 7pm. Be sure to check out the website (title-linked to this post) where you can link to the B2 Network webcast games.

Way to go boys! Keep up the great work! We'll be watching and waiting!

Go 'Cats!
