The Bucs woke up early on Saturday after a late game and tough loss to #7 Harding to get ready to play a team that had leapfrogged the Bucs in the national polls.

St. Louis arrived with 13 guys, and the Bucs knew what they had to do. Inserting all 4 lines in regularly, the Bucs ran St. Louis up and down and controlled much of the game. Jeffcoat had a career day, literally scoring the first 4 goals of the game. When St. Louis did have the ball on offense they did have a few moments of brilliance. You could tell if they had numbers this might have been a much different game. However, our defense, once again, was able to make solid checks and take the ball away, even when the Billikens were trying to slow it down.

Overall, it was a fun game on tough field conditions with the Bucs coming away with a 14-5 win, after leading 6-1 at half-time and 11- 3 after the third. Everyone got in and had a chance to play. McDonough made two of the nicest stops of the year after being inserted for the last 6 minutes of the game, on two direct stuffs, one on a one on one. Derek played an exceptional game and Arrington notched his second goal in as many games, as the third line is starting to produce offensively as well.

The solid win, and first OOC win ever for the Bucs made the ride home much more pleasing. Speaking of the trip, there are a few things that must be clarified.

First, as often happens, nicknames find players, not the other way around. Ian "Old Maid" Flechsig was a fit from the beginning, as he was constantly the "old maid" in the card game that literally had the entire bus riveted for hours. There were more "ultimate final" games of old maid than one could shake a stick at,including a massive ten person game to decide the ultimate old maid that literally took an hour and a half. I have seldom seen Ian so focused as when he was playing the game.

Next, it should be noted that coach was forced to sign a score card for Spades, and disputes the final results against Ehrlich and Pritchett to this day. He still has not found a player that is worthy of his "unique" prowess, and considers all those that have left him for other partners...traitors.

Finally, no matter what, it was considered a successful trip, as not once did Joe Dirt materialize on the trip, and because there actually were quite a few guys that did an awful lot of studying.

Next week the Bucs return to the field to play a very tough UTA team, followed up by the scrappy SFA Lumberjacks. A win against both teams will almost ensure the Bucs the First seed in the playoffs, which this year will be held on home turf. A loss to the Mavericks will mean all kinds of ruckus in the standings.

The good thing is that no matter what, the Bucs remain at home for the rest of the season through however far they go in the playoffs. We hope to see all our fans, and some that we can convert, starting this weekend. Two years ago, the Bucs had to come from behind to win in overtime to beat UTA. It should be one of our toughest games of the year, as Gary always has these guys ready to play.

As we begin to wind down the regular season, there are still a few glitches on the team offensively and defensively that we need to take care of in order to be clicking on all cylinders come the playoffs at the end of the month. We hope everyone comes along for the ride.
