Jokers of Doom Lose Fall Season Opener, 6-1

The new season brought a few new faces to the Jokers of Doom roster, including goalie Matt Dutily, forwards C.J. Lupoli and Delfo Tringali, and defenseman Aaron Duncan. Unfortunately the overall results continued to resemble last season with a major struggle to put the ball in the net. Miraculously the Jokers and opponent Charlestown Chiefs both had 31 shots on goal, but almost all the quality chances were with the Chiefs, including a hat trick from Sean Miller. The Jokers could just never break through the stout Chiefs defense, with most of the shots coming from lengthy distances or tough angles. Dutily’s first game as net minder came with many point blank shots, so the Jokers will look to tighten the defense and generate some offense in the next game vs the YellowJackets.
