Aces Remain Perfect With Win Over Tycoons
October 5 - Tyler Dohertys 3 assists and Burger Joys First Star selection helped a depleted Manulife Macau Aces squad overcome a plucky HKBN Hong Kong Tycoons effort. Playing without Assistant Captain Jeff Ceccacci (hip) and 4 other absentees, Aces role players stepped up their game to ensure a gritty victory. In a physical encounter that saw 9 minor penalties, forwards Jonathan Szychta and Matthew Gaetz provided a heart and soul performance for the Tycoons, toiling at length in front of the net and on the boards. Ultimately, the hard work of the Tycoons couldn’t translate into enough offense on the score sheet, leaving Macau on top of the standings after 2 games.
Burger Joys 3 Stars
1. Tyler Doherty (Aces)
2. Tom Allen (Aces)
3. Matthew Gaetz (Tycoons)
