The Blue Tongues Update – August 1, 2011

Gold Coast Blue Tongues

A lot has happened to the Gold Coast Blue Tongues since my last post on July 8.  I will bring us all up to date.  In the AIHL, the top 4 teams make it to the Finals.  On July 8, we were in 5th spot looking up at the Adelaide Adrenaline.  In the period since then, we have gone on a bit of a tear, winning 3, losing 1, and 1 each of a shootout win and a loss.  As a result of this streak we are now in 4th spot, 2 points up on Adelaide with 4 games to go.  In the AIHL, a win is 3 points, a shootout win is 2, a shootout loss is 1 and nothing, of course, for a loss.

The surge has been led by Matt Amado, who now has 37 goals in 22 games.  His linemate, Tobias Falk has 28 assists.  Goaltender, Luke Fiveash has returned from injury to post 4 straight wins and a 3.00 GAA.  All of the above has combined for a legitimate shot at the title.  A major test will be held next week as the Blue Tongues play the first place Melbourne Ice.

The video attached is a short news story on the Sydney Bears, who were preparing to meet our heroes.
