After several weeks of games, parity is emerging between the teams in the Skatium broomball league.
Mad River Glen and the Mad River Garden Center Liver Spots, two top teams during the first half of the season, both suffered losses on Presidents Day. Waitsfield-Champlain Valley Telecom avenged two straight losses with a 5-3 victory over the Liver Spots. Word has it that Ed Read, after learning of his team's loss, booked a flight to the Congo to recruit some more gorillas.
Jamieson Insurance improved its record with a 5-3 victory over MRG. (Jamieson was later penalized one goal for not playing co-ed to make it 5-4.)
The team won-lost records with three weeks left in the season are: MRG 2-2; Liver Spots 2-2; Jamieson 2-1; WCVT 1-2. Next Monday evening MRG squares off against the Liver Spots as they vie for the league-leading third win and WCVT seeks to even its record in its game against Jamieson, while Jamieson could tie for the league lead with a victory. There is still no sign of Sugarbush.
The spectacle is open to the public.
