Mountaineers Drop Game 1

The Mountaineers dropped game 1 of the NECBL Championship series to the Newport Gulls 11-2 last night. The good guys may have been suffering a bit of bus-lag after travelling on a bus every night since last Friday. These kids deal with a brutal travel schedule all season long and it may have finally caught up with the Mountaineers last night.

I know these guys have to return to college soon but would it really have caused that many problems if they had put a rest day between the division series and league championship? A day's rest at this point would do a lot for both teams and the quality of play.

Game 2 of the series will be a do-or-die situation for Vermont tonight in Montpelier (6:30pm game time). If they win, the series returns to Newport for a decisive game tomorrow night. If not, the Gulls celebrate the title as we roll their bus over in the parking lot..
