The Blue Tongues Update – August 9, 2011

Gold Coast Blue Tongues

What a great week it was for our heroes, the Gold Coast Blue Tongues.  Needing as many points as they could get against the first place Melbourne Ice in order to keep their tenuous hold on the 4th and final playoff spot, the Blue Tongues split the series.  They handed the Ice only their second defeat of the season in regulation time.  The Blue Tongues are putting it all together at the right time of the year (for Australia that is).   Next weekend is in Melbourne with games against the Ice and the Mustangs.  Very important games.  We will play our final 2 games, on the road against the second place Newcastle North Stars in a must win situation.  The 5th place Adelaide Adrenaline are a mere 2 points behind in the standings.  Stay tuned for the results.

Video is a recent promo that explains some stuff about Australian hockey and the league. (AIHL)
