Saving Private Ryan

Now I know it may not be popular to associate the Buccaneers with anything as bad in history as the Nazi’s but for artistic effect bear with me a moment here. It may help to say that we had a good time in a well fought and good tempered game and we really enjoyed it, hopefully the buccs did to and any references to Nazi’s is only meant for comic effect. And on that note on to World War II, Part 3, D-Day.


The game started in a massacre of the troops on Idaho beach. Bullets punching through the water, innocents lost even before they had made beachhead. Trapped with a relentless bombardment from the fixed defences of fortress Europe, caught cold and with little cover, casualties where bound to be heavy and in less than 4 minutes the Phantoms where 4 – 0 down and staring down the barrel of another heavy defeat.

Then through shear tenacity they started to engineer a foothold, ney simply a toehold at first, moving the defensive perimeter around the goal ever wider. Super work over those next minutes from the for the night, Brian (Jackson) Charmers, Scott (Fish) Dutton, Emmas (Steamboat) Middelton and Cookie (nickname self evident). Aided heroically by efforts on centre from George Perrett (Captain Millar) and James Ashbrook (Ryan) the phantoms began to find their feet in the game.

Still the casualties rose though as Leo took a blighty for 2 mins for slashing though the barbed wire. With a third of the film gone and the beach seen only just closing the final carnage was 6-0.

Moving on to the great relentless retreat of the German forces. Both sides fought hard but fair for all of the ice, 5 penalties in all for the middle section, Chris Derrick and Scott taking the blows.

James Ashbrook storms a pill box on his own, machine gun rattling and under fire. He launches a grenade high though the hole in the keepers defence. Destroys the bunker and opens up a hole to run though for his first Phantoms goal. And it’s a show reel beauty in such an ugly war.

Sniper George Perrett takes a position up high in a church tower and starts to pepper the opposition. Casualties are heavy and Scott takes one for the team. George fights back and fires a short handed goal into the net. Looking down the barrel of his rifle however he realizes time is up when he sees a howitzer pointing up at him. In a twist from the film he jumps down the stairs in time and escapes and the church collapses around him and the Buccs score three goals to end the period 3-2.

9-2 overall.

In the final period the phantoms have much more of the play and possession in a hard fought climax to the film. George bags another after good pressure from the forward line on a useful shift with lots of close fought action. The buccs respond immediately though and then throw in a surprise a late counter attack which we know from history is doomed to failure in the end but at the time pushes back the allies and brings respite to the German troops. With less than a minute to go of the film the buccs finally overcome the Phantoms defence of the bridge. The heavy tanks too much for troops with small arms. 2 more goals go in.

Private Ryan is lying, probably dying, on the bridge, hope finally lost as the tanks roll on and his comrades have fallen.

Then in the final scene, just as hope and life has been extinguished, the RAF arrive and bust the tanks apart. The offensive is over before it has begun.

History tells well enough what happens next as the Phantoms march onwards to Berlin and final victory. Maybe the whole story will play out in the hockey season this year?

Watch out buccs.

Keepers are there to display, But they dont look great as they are. We dont count Shots on Goal so stats may be a little weird.

Dragons game sheet isnt likely to come unfortunately :(
Think its Dan, Leo and Mike M who got the goals, Not sure on the assists.

But yeah you are difficult playing in and out :P Ill have it sorted soon
