Congratulations Albany Jr River Rats!

22 03 2009

After leading Division 2 of the NEMHL, the Albany Jr. River Rats swept through the final tournament willing all three of the regular games. In an exciting championship game against the Saratoga Blue Knights the game ended regulation time in a 1-1 tie – showing just how hard each team had worked!

In a 5-on-5 sudden death overtime the Rats dropped the puck in to win the championship!

Photos from that last game, the NEMHL banquet the night before, and the end of season pizza party can be seen here.

A very nice article appeared in the Saratogian.

Congratulations men!

Although the regular league season had ended, the team entered the Spring Fling over at North Adams, MA for a final tournament. Three regular game with rather interesting results! The second game ended in a tie after struggling through ice related issues. Apparently an electrical problem disabled the compressors causing the ice temperature to rise significantly! In fact, the water laid down by the Olympia before third period had not frozen by games end!

Overall, however, results were wonderful! With a 2-0-1 record, the Capitals entered the championship game. Battling it out with the Northern Berkshire team, we were down 1-0 into the third period! Some fancy teamwork and great effort got us a goal causing the game to end in a 1-1 tie! On to overtime where, approximately 7 minutes into the period, Capital scored the tournament winning goal!

I have photos of the final goal, the players getting their trophies and the final team picture. As soon as I can, I’ll prepare those into a photo gallery and upload them for you to enjoy. The photos will be posted full-size – just right-click on them to save them to your computer. Then you can print them, make screen savers, etc. I’ll only have them up for a limited time, so please be sure to grab them as soon as possible! Watch here for an update with the link.

For those who had ordered a CD – I only found out the other day that the money had been collected! I’ve already burned the disks and am waiting for the mailing addresses for everyone – then I’ll shoot those out. It has the Rink Rat game, the game against the Comets just before the end of the season, and the photos from the Spring Fling. So if you had ordered the disk, you don’t have to download em. If you did not order the disk and still want one, please give me a call or email and we’ll work it out.

ATTENTION JUNIORS – I do senior portraits! Skip that boring studio and let me do your photos! Bring a friend or two along for their session and I have a special thank you gift for you!

Enjoy! I hope to see everyone again soon!

Rink Rat 2008 – Update

27 02 2008

Folks, just wanted to let everyone know that all items ordered at the tournament have either already been mailed or are going out today! My apologies for the delay – I normally try to get everything in the mail the same week as the tournament! Unfortunately, I seemed to have caught that plague that’s going around and spent 4 days in bed trying to recover!

To the Millbrook folks, I have uploaded your awards photos to this link (media.mjandersonphotography.com/millbrook) so that you may download them! You can either grab the separate image files or, to make it easier, just download the zip file – all the photos are in there. Just “right click” and then “save as”.

My apologies for grabbing the wrong ones for your disk! Feverish photographers sometimes make some mistakes!
