The Blue Tongues Update – August 21, 2011
Houston, we have a problem. After splitting their games on August 13 and 14, only to see Adelaide win both theirs, we see the Gold Coast Blue Tongues in 5th place, looking up at the 4th place Adelaide Adrenaline. They are 2 points down with 2 games to go (wins are worth 3 points in this league) and have a tough series on the road next weekend against the second place Newcastle North Stars. The Adrenaline play 2 at home, one against the 7th place Canberra Knights, the other facing the 8th and last place Sydney ice Dogs. The Blue Tongues need to win at least one and have the Adrenaline lose both, or one if the Tongues sweep. If not, the season is over for our heroes.
In Blue Tongue news, Matt Amado set an AIHL record with his 41st goal of the season. He held the previous record of 39, which he also held and set in 2007 in only 20 games. He currently has 41, with 2 games to go. It would be great if he scored 10 next weekend.
Good luck next weekend.
