Exhibition Game Result: TKL 6 vs. Estonians 4

Sorry to our fans for the short notice regarding this game. It was a Baltic Cup qualifier game organized by the Toronto Estonians on Friday Feb 27, 2009. 6 - 7:15pm at Centennial RC (Scarborough). Great ice given the rink time shortages throughout the GTA!

The Estonians were a bit short staffed and many thanks to the four TKL'ers that jumped over to the dark side to help them out! The score was tied at 2 after one period, 4-3 TKL after two and we traded a few goals in a hard fought third.

Most notable was the great effort on the part of both goalies, mainly TKL's Jonas Kurpeikis who took a couple hard shots off the clavicle and had some serious welts to take home as his souvenir along with his second Baltic Cup win. Stewart Pitchford filled in for the Estonians and did an admirable job snagging his share of shots too.

Also of note was Mike "Shakes" Mazeika finally breaking the ice - more like opening the floodgates - to rifle in 4 goals! The other TKL goals were scored by Alvin Kišonas and Rick Dresheris.

Here are a couple of game photos...

Another close one against the Latvians!

AWESOME Baltic Charity Game yesterday!!! It was for a great cause and the Labdara Nursing home really appreciates it.

Even though we didn't win, we sure came close to winning our first game against the Latvians. We scored the first goal and we were leading late in the 3'rd with a score of 3-2.

The final score was 4-3 for the Latvians and would of won it if only we didn't have 3 men in the penalty box during the last 3 minutes! The Latvians tied it with 3 minutes left on a power play with the go ahead goal while we were down two men with one minute remaining.

Steve Podsadecki scored 2 goals and Alex Butkus scored the other. Our youngest player Brendan Butrimas played in his first baltic game and made a beautiful assist. Danius Lelis played terrific in net!

Nice work guys and AČIŲ to EVERYONE who participated!
