A rainy day Saturday elicited a plethora of ZSABL action. First up was Rochester taking a 4-2 decision from Las Vegas to move to within a game of the Eastern lead.
Then Philadelphia extended the "holier than thou" division's woes by dropping Memphis 5-1 and moved into a 1st place tie with Brooklyn.
The Sound took the last contest to avoid the sweep. Those in attendance were shocked by the Memphis skipper's language, since they knew him as a "good Catholic boy", when he let go a series of oaths and expletives that would make a sailor blush. His sheepish response was merely "Excuse my French".
In other action, Hartford kept up their stellar play by capturing their 3rd straight 5-1 victory, this time over USMC. The last time the Hurricanes opened a season with 3 consecutive victories was 2005 when they won their first four series en-route to their LAST Championship.
Billings got on the winning side of the ledger by knocking off Las Vegas 4-2 for their first series triumph of the year. The loss dropped the Crazy Horse to .500.
The USMC vs Amsterdam results just came in and it was a 3-3 split.
Hartford slammed Sherwood 5-1 with the Machine taking the last contest to avoid the sweep.
