Championship weekend was headlined by one predictable finish and one huge surprise.
The recreational division playoffs went as the regular season had gone. Mother Puckers defeated The Plague for the right to face Byrne Outs in the championship game. An exhausted Mother Pucker team fell in the final 3 – 0. Byrne Outs completed an outstanding season (only one loss) with their first league championship.
Competitive playoffs went off script according to regular season results. Bendy Bunch had a rough season of rotating goaltending and inconsistent attendance usually playing shorthanded. With a goalie and line up of 6 skaters this would be their weekend. Game one versus Bowhunters seemed to follow what had happened to them all season, give up too many goals early and find themselves too far behind to catch up. But they recovered in time to win in a shootout. The top seeded Tuttle Park All Stars were without their captain, Andrew Telfer and their starting goaltender, Nick Lane and it proved to be too much. Bendy Bunch took the game 5 – 2. They were just getting warmed up as they posted a shutout in a 9 – 0 championship game victory over FortyFour7Hockey.com.
Congratulations to both Byrne Outs and Bendy Bunch!
Thank you to all the teams and players who make this league possible!
