I'm not sure how to react...

Okay, here's the situation:

-Late in the 3rd
-Blow out game (We're down 10-1)
-It's co-ed house league
-Standing in front of the net as I normally do
-Get slewfooted
-Check to see who did it and give them a piece of my mind
-It's a girl
-Proceed to stay in front of the net
-Receive 15-20 crosschecks to the back
-Just took it until a female teammate came to the rescue

Just for future reference: How the hell should I have reacted in that situation? Did I do the right thing? Because I feel pretty damn emasculated

It's a lose-lose-lose scenario.

Do nothing, she keeps hacking away. Lose.

Drop the mitts, get even. You're a loser.

Drop the mitts, get beat by a chick. Hand in your gun and mancard to the front desk.

You could always tell her she's fat.

If you're playing in a league you're susceptible to the same treatment as everybody else. I wouldn't drop the mitts with a girl, but don't be afraid to respond when they start hacking you.

I'm sure that after the game she'd appreciate the fact that you didn't let up on her just because she was a girl.

I feel like if I reacted at all in a 10-1 game, I would have just been asking for one of her teammates to come in a beat me to a pulp (I'm a tiny dude (5'8, 125lbs), so that's really not an option for me)

To OP, I'd probably do the same if I were in your shoes...

I'd cross check her right in the ****. You want to give it, you better be ready to receive it. Gender equality and all that, right?

Give her a piece of your mind, verbally. And next time you see her in the game where you have the puck and she goes to back check, crank the speed and 'accidentally' skate through her.

Probably would've just pulled her stick out of her hands and chucked it into the corner. It's a beer league blowout and she's playing like it's the cup finals right there.

Not much to do, just swallow your pride for now. Trashtalk her in the next game and pull out a few cheap shots if you want

That's intended as a joke, but that's the only solution.

If you get physical with a girl you look bad doesn't matter what you do. I was in training camp last summer where a big one (she was about 6'1", ~3" taller than me) got pissed cause I picked her pocket all the time (we were put in the same skill group). She started to slash whenever I had the puck. I just gave her a little tap on her calves, I was almost thrown out opf practice by the same coach who didn't see her slashing my stick to pieces.

Telling her on the other hand, that she's fat, will have its effect, even if she's not.

125? Eat a cheeseburger, man! If you bulk up girls won't be able to knock you over and you can just laugh at their feeble attempts to do so.

this is the best response. You may get a penalty...but if they're letting the crap she's pulling go you should be safe.


But it is hockey, and gender be damned. If I'm getting hacked like that i'll shove back to gain better positioning. If she wants to play like that you have every right to play a little more physical.

the last one will either shut her up and send her to the locker room in tears , or she will crack the stick over your head and cry when she gets home

To tell her that she reminds you of Byfuglien is really the only appropriate variant. Damn girls who try to act tough.

Should've leveled her, but not fought. Equal rights, equal treatment.

Sneak your stick between your legs, hook her ankle and pull her down, fall on top of her if you wish. Then insult her skating ability.

I would have turned to her and simply said, ' sweetie, one more cross check and I'm going to slash that stick right out of your hands.' Chances are, she doesn't even realize that she's crossing the line. A lot of less skilled players think this is the way you defend the area in front of your net.

I was going to suggest a verbal assault but this idea is pretty good.

Either that or just stand there taking it and get the refs attention, look at him and throw your hands up.

Girl or not I would have started giving tiny "invisible" crosschecks to the back/sides when the refs weren't looking. Once you start in with that crap it's fair game. And that's about as dirty as I get. I don't cheapshot or headshot or elbow or slash, I just start shoving them out of the way.

Then again I'm your height + 75 pounds so I'm a little tougher to deal with

Hmmm, if such a thing happens again I'll be sure to call her fat but I'm pretty fond of this idea:

Honestly all you need to do in that situation is give her a nice slash on the top on the laces. She'll drop like a rock and it doesn't look that viscous in the grand scheme of things.
