The Playoffs

Category : Uncategorized

Player appreciation week, aka The Playoffs have arrived. After 6 weeks, many double headers and lingering hot weather, a perfect day came along for our final weekend.

Semi-Finals

Decapitators (2) v. Byrne Outs (3)

This game finished with a very lopsided score of 8 – 2 in favor of Decapitators. Until late in the 3rd period this game had a very competitive nature. That being that, every member of the Decapitators had a goal and Walter Stepanenko led all scores with 4 points (2 goals, 2 assists).

Championship

GeriHattricks (1) v. Decapitators (2)

Head-to-head this session these two teams were evenly matched with one regulation win each and one game decided in a shoot out.  The GeriHattricks staked an early 3 -1 lead. The Decapitators, however, battled back with 2 goals late in the second period to tie the game.  GeriHattricks lost momentum and ran out of gas as the Decapitators dominated the 3rd period posting an 8 – 4 victory. Once again every skater for Decapitators tallied a goal and once again they were led by Walter Stepanenko’s 4 point performance (3 goals, 1 assist).

Week 6 – The Splits

Category : Uncategorized

So, weird title, right? Both teams playing doubleheaders this week split, one win, one loss. That was my attempt at a pun, or something like that. Now, lets talk about the games before you stop reading.

Byrne Outs v. The Plague

These teams have alternated victories over the last three meetings with The Plague bettering the Byrne Outs two out of the three.  In one of the most competitive games played all season a scoreless tie went into the 3rd period. George Victory scored the lone goal and goalie Jason Devore took the hard luck 1 – 0 loss. At the other end Aaron Hipwell recorded his league leading 2nd shutout of the season.

Decapitators v. Byrne Outs

Byrne Outs were solid in the 3rd seed for the playoffs but the Decapitators could take the #1 overall seed if they won both games of their doubleheader. Led by another huge game by Walter Stepanenko (3 goals, 5 assists) Decapitators cruised to a 12 – 3 victory. Chad Hammond and Ryan Jones each had hat tricks. Newcomer Micah Siegmund found the back of the net twice in his ORHC debut.

GeriHattricks v. Decapitators

The showdown. The winner would take the season series and move on to be the top seed in the playoffs. Adam Barnett and Walter Stepanenko, the top two points leaders and goal scores battled it out. Barnett bested Stepanenko 3 goals to 2 as the ‘Hattricks took the season series by a score of 4 – 3. Caleb Smith (Decapitators) and Kelly Klancer (GeriHattricks) each dished out 2 assists a piece.
