    By Jeremy Ellis In hockey, the first goal of a game is integral to success.  In roller hockey, this rings especially true.  The Labeda Snipers took this strategy to a new level this weekend.  In their three playoff games, the Snipers scored first in each and every one.  The aftermath was a stranglehold of puck possession and suffocating defense; the recipe for Sniper success.
