Championship Weekend

Category : Uncategorized

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!

Wednesday Night League Championship

Eskimo Bros. (1) v. Bowhunters (2)

Just as happened the week prior the Bowhunters were coming into a second game of a double header facing the rested Eskimo Bros. Early it looked as though the Bowhunters would have an advantage as Richard Moritz had a skate break leaving the Eskimo Bros. short handed in the first period. BuZz Green of The Plague kindly provided Richard a skate so he could return to the game. Richard made the most of his return scoring a hattrick, leading the Eskimo Bros. to a 7 – 2 victory. Brett Chaffin, Nathan Yellon and Nick Lane each added a goal and an assist.

Nick Lane ended the season as the scoring leader (27 points) and the assist leader (11 points) while Brian McIntyre took the goal scoring title (17 goals). Top goaltender honors go to Aaron Hipwell with 8 wins and a 3.00 goals against average.

Thank you to all who came out and played. Here are some photos from the Championship Game:
