Professional Inline Hockey League action returns to The Asylum, the home of your Harrisburg Lunatics, on Saturday October 22nd. All Pro and Minor teams in the Eastern Conference will descend upon the Sport Center for one day of action packed roller hockey. Games begin at 7:30am with the Minor Division playing during the first half of the day. Pro action gets underway at 3:30pm with the last game starting at 11:45pm.
The Harrisburg Lunatics Pro team will look to improve upon their three and two record so far this season as they hope to capture their first ever Founders Cup. With the addition of five-time scoring champion Brian Yingling to the lineup, as well as welcoming back former Tics Kevin Hollenbush, Scott Gartzke, and Scott Miller back into the fold, the Tics seem loaded and are ready to conquer the Eastern Conference. Don’t forget about veteran sniper Jay Mazer, along with Shawn Powell and second year pro Frankie Saad along for the ride as well. The Tics will try to avenge their loss In Pottstown a few weeks ago to the Suffolk (NY) Sting with a game at 5:00 pm. The Tics will also take on the Pottstown Team Blue (8:00 PM) the Pennsylvania Typhoon (10:15 PM), and they will close out the days festivities with a game against the Scottdale Inferno (11:45 PM).
The Camp Hill Lunatics won two of their first three games on the young season, defeating the Pennsylvania Monsoon and their chief rival, the Lemoyne Lunatics, after falling in defeat to the Scottdale Inferno in Pottstown. The CH Tics are loaded with speed and talent up front as former pro Svend “Dave” Sheppard and rookie standout Nate Conway led the offensive charge. The team is anchored on defense by veteran d-men Angel Silva and Mike Edris, with third year pro Jeff Farenga and second year Tic Matt Morgan between the pipes. Camp Hill will look to continue their winning streak, facing the Monsoon (8:10 AM) for the second time in three games, followed by contests against the Marshalton Rampage (9:30 AM) and Thorndale Rampage (12:10 PM).
After a tough start to the season, the Lemoyne Lunatics look to find their footing in the young season and capture their first win. The Lemoyne Tics fell to the Monsoon, Sting, and Inferno on their first three games, but were able to salvage a point against Camp Hill before ultimately falling in a shootout. Team captain Bryan Lowe led the way offensively potting 4 of the teams’ nine goals, while rookie Alex Leland had a two goal effort against Camp Hill. Lemoyne will get their first looks of the season against the New Jersey Grizzlies (7:30 AM), Marshalton Rampage (10:50 AM), Pottstown Team Blue (12:50 PM), while finishing up against the Grizzlies (2:10 PM).
