WCBN Broomball improves to 2-0


WCBN Broomball (2-0) picked up another victory, defeating Global Access (0-2) by a 9-0 margin. For the second week in a row, WCBN was limited to just three first half goals. Tony "Don't call me Michael" Bolton (Canton, MI / Salem High School) gave another Russell Crowe-esque inspirational halftime speech and WCBN responded with six second half goals. Player of the game, Chelsea Slater (Cincinnati, OH / Turpin High School) let her broom do the talking as she tallied four goals, all in the second half to quickly put the game out of reach.

Global Access gave WCBN a freebie off the opening whistle when a centering pass from captain, Stuart Zaas (Solon, OH/ Solon High School) was deflected by a Global Access player and into his own net to give WCBN a 1-0 advantage just 21 seconds into the game. Bolton and co-captain Andrew Seid (San Antonio, TX / Ronald Reagan High School) would add a goal a piece to round out the first half scoring.

Zaas lit the lamp with his second goal of the night with a one-timer off a beautiful pass from Ben Betzler (San Antonio, TX / Ronald Reagan High School) that was angled perfectly off the boards in front of the net. Seid capped off the scoring stealing the puck from a bewildered Global Access player and converting with a wrister that found the upper left corner.

I still haven't given up a goal, a trend which will continue until the end of time, so be prepared to be the second best broomball team at Michigan.
