Randy Takada and Sean Brokop Become the 2 Newest Members of the Exclusive 500 Point Club
With a 4 assist performance vs. White on Jan 3, 2019 Randy Takada eclipsed the 500 point mark in his 20th GWLHL season becoming just the 20th GWLHLer to do so. Randy is in the midst of a career season playing for Teal finishing the regular season 3rd overall in league scoring with a sizzling 58 points in 17 games for an average of just over 3.4 points per game. Congrats to Randy on a great season and hitting this amazing career milestone!
Not to be outdone, Team Black MVP and perennial score runner-upper Sean Brokop put an exclamation point on his 500th career point with a 7 point performance in an 8-1 annihilation of a short-handed Orange squad last week becoming the 21st player in GWLHL history to reach this mark. Brokop is also in the midst of a career year finishing 2nd overall in league scoring in the regular season with 66 points in 17 games which is just shy of 4 points per game (3.88). With his 7 point performance last week Brokop is now just 1 point shy of his career high in points of 74 which he accomplished in back to back seasons in 2012-2013 and 2013-2014. Brokop becomes one of the fastest to ever reach 500 points doing it in only his 8th season and 165th career game. By the looks of the Player Career Stats page Brokop is likely the 2nd fastest to reach 500 points behind only you-know-who but hard to say for sure. Congrats to Brokop on reaching this milestone so speedily!
Brian 'Buzz' Boult and Ron Hanson Become Only the 10th and 11th Members of the 600 Point Club
With a first period assist in Team Purple's big 3-2 win vs. Green last week Brian Boult became the 10th member of the even more exclusive 600 point club. Just 8 days later Ron Hanson also joined the 600 point club with a 1 goal 2 assist performance in Teal's 10-4 win vs. Orange. Both Buzz and Hanson reached the 600 point milestone in their 17th season in the league.
Technically there's really only 5 members of the 600 point club as the other 6 members have graduated to the 700, 800, 900, etc. point clubs. The 600 point club includes such GWLHL luminaries as Croitor, Maguet, Melnyk, and now Buzz and Hanson. Congratulations Buzz and Ron on reaching this impressive milestone!
Reggie Becomes the 1st Member of the 2100 Point Club
Even more exclusive than the 600 Point Club is the brand new 2100 Point Club which Reggie Goodfellow founded last week with a 9G 1A performance against White. I'm not sure how often in league history someone has scored a hat trick of hat tricks in a single game but I'm guessing not often.
