Regular Season - Sim 5 Edition


BATTLEBORN'S OFFENSE PICKING UP BUT DEFENSE STILL STRUGGLING TO FIND IT SELF


                        The Nevada Battleborn followed their first win of the season by starting their 2nd losing streak of their young season, after going 0 - 2 last sim. Although the Battleborn have seen their offense start clicking, with 7 goals this sim, Nevada continues to struggle defensively allowing 84 shots on net through the 2 games. It's been an ongoing issue all season, albeit it's still early in the season, as Nevada's coaching staff continues to tinker with player line ups and tactics to try and find there best fit. 

                        The first game of the sim was an exciting 9 - 5 loss at the hands of the St. Louis Scarecrows. With 6 goals in the 1st period and 6 goals in the third period, plus the 2 in the middle, it was a high scoring affair from finish to end. Phillip Weaver (@W19eaver) was pulled for the 4th time this season, late in the 1st period after allowing 4 goals on 15 shots. Zelma Zuntnere (@Jogurtaa) continues to have a hot stick, proving why she was taken in the S55 SMJHL Expansion Draft, scored 2 goals, including 1 on the powerplay to bring her season total to a team leading 5. Battleborn rookies Chad Danger (@Arayvenn) and Vili Afalava (@Wasty) also had strong games offensively with 2 assists each, with the former also leading defensively as a +2 and 4 hits. Unfortunately for Sammy "The Goon" Koa (@ThatDamnWalrus) he had a game he would very like to forget as he was a team low -5 which caused him to be in the middle of some local media jokes, although all the Battleborns know that was just one flukey game and he will come back bigger, stronger and motivation to stick it to everyone who doubts him. 

                        The next game was Nevada's rematch against the Detroit Falcons which they ended up losing 3 - 2. Nevada promising rookie defender Grandmaster Funk (@GMFunk) scored his first career goal midway through the 2nd period to tie the game up 2 - 2. Battleborn's penalty kill game up big this game, going a perfect 3 for 3 when down a man, but also scoring their first short handed goal, scored by undrafted rookie Jimbo Slice (@JMolloy54). Sachimo Zoidberg III (@Jala) continues to lead the way defensively this time picking up 6 blocked shots and 2 hits, while Grandmaster Funk (@GMFunk) also had a solid defensive outing with 4 blocked shots and 3 hits. 

                        With only 1 matchup next sim, it should be a little quieter then normal for Nevada. Although that one game is a doozy as it the Battleborn's first regular season match up against the Vancouver Whalers. Pretty much since before the S55 SMJHL Entry Draft, Nevada co-gm @Nokazoa has repeatedly told us his one and only true goal for the season is to beat the Whalers at least once. The Vancouver Whalers are currently sitting at 3 - 7 - 1 so a win there doesn't sound too far fetched, plus all of the Battleborn roster wants to grant their fearless leader his goal. LETS GO BATTLEBORN Battleborn
