Saturday, September 11, 2010
Pittsburgh Jr B Penguins – 9
Brewster Bulldogs – 2

After an extremely successful camp and numerous hours of grueling practices,
coach Brian Cersosimo and 'the boys' proved to be more than ready to drop the 
puck on the 2010/11 season.

Brett started off the scoring for the Pens by burying the puck behind the stunned Bulldog net-minder Alidadi, just 44 seconds into the game. McKown and Leonelli had the assist. The Pens added one more tally in the first form Straub at the 15:42 mark, Leonelli had the assist.  The Pens out-shot the Bulldogs 11-9 in the first.

The second started off even faster than the first did with Nehnevajsa finding Berardinelli just 30 seconds in to give the Pens a 3-0 lead. McNulty added a fourth goal a little over 3 minutes later with a beautiful feed from Parise.  This sent The Bulldog net-minder to an early shower.

The net-minder change seemed to give the Bulldogs the spark they were looking for
when Boudiette fired a shot off of the leg pad of the Pens net-minder Allen and Santini buried the rebound to finally get on the board at the 9:12 mark of the second period.  Hovanec then took matters into his own hands scoring an unassisted goal at 15:10.  Alexander scored the last Bulldog tally of the night 1 minute 8 seconds later from Barnes and Santini.

The second period scoring ended 37 seconds later when Parise buried a feed from
Myers.  The Pens out-shot the Bulldogs 14-9 in the second.

The third period featured more scoring from the Pens as Hovanec, Berardinelli and McKown all added to their goal totals with assists from Nehnevajsa, Brett, Susi, Berardinelli and Hovanec as the boys posted 3 more goals while Allen stood solid in the net turning away all 6 of the Bulldogs shots for the period.

The final shots on goal were 24 for Brewster and 42 for the Pens.
