The Bramabulls were doomed as of the seven minute mark of the first period where Wocafloka began their barrage of goals.

(2)Eagles vs Billionaires(8)
The Billionaires got their moneys worth as they downed the Eagles 8-2 to start their season. The goals came in bunches early on as five went passed the defenceless net minder in the first period alone. M.Colatosti continued the barrage of goals, adding two late second period tallies for his hat trick. Another big piece of the puzzle was J.Velenosi, who scored twice and made three goals happen with assists. The Eagles will need to go through the motions of getting their feet wet, but as time goes on, the young squad will only improve.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to John Bourlakos of Carnage. Bourlakos notched two out of the four goals scored for his team in a close 4-2 win over the A-Team....
Wednesday May 20(F Divisions)
(4)23rd Hour vs Acotyles(6)
M.Allard lifts the Acotyles to victory with a late power play goal. Deadlocked at four goals a piece, the Acotyles took advantage of a late power play opportunity never to look back. Leading to that point, S.Dicaire was a menace posting three markers. The 23rd Hour trailed the match on three occasions, and despite evening the score every time, they couldn’t take the next step to turn the pressure on their opponents.

Captain R.Ricard scored his first of two early in the second period for a 3-0 lead .For nearly two periods, the Golden Shaft didn’t allow a goal until J.D’Angelo finally got on the board for the Money Shot. The Golden Shaft doubled their opponents 2 to 1 in the shots column finishing with 32 attempts towards P.DelliColli, who fell short to his counter part T.Leroux.
(4)Hellfish vs Bolts(2)
It took just over half the game for the Hellfish to finally get things going. Once N.Fotakis got his club on the board, the Hellfish found their touch scoring twice in both the second and third frames. Fotakis evened the score at one goal a piece before adding his second for a 4-1 third period lead. After allowing the first goal of the match, F.Vigliotti shut the door for most of the contest enabling the Hellfish to take over with four straight tallies.
(1)Brewers vs NWV(4)
C.Kalogeropoulos celebrated two goals and added an assist to help lift NWV over the Brewers. The NWV left the opening frame with a 2-1 lead and added a pair of insurance markers only as of the third where Kalogeropoulos added his second of the contest. The Brewers scored only once in the first period courtesy of R.Hagen before going through the frustrations of trying to solve B.Madonis for a second time.
(1)Chaos vs Monsters(7)
P.Legatos nets a hat trick during a seven goal barrage, and the Monsters got off to a spectacular start with a 7-1 victory over Chaos. P.Klitirinos scored and added three helpers while A.Klitirinos had a game to remember finishing with six points. The only slight miss hap for the Monsters was when J-M Tremblay got the better of the Monsters net minder J.Liopoulos early in the second period.
(5)Punishers vs Dream Team(2) E division
The Punishers carried good habits as they take down the Dream Team to start their season. The recent F2 champs only took charge late in the second period where P.Karvouriaris scored his first of two to get the Punishers on the board. The third period was filled with non stop action where each side combined with six out of the seven goals scored during the whole game. It was C.Gagnon that ran over his opponents as his three goals and two assists were too much to handle. F.Vigliotti just finished playing a half hour earlier with the Hellfish and didn’t miss a beat acquiring a second win in a very short period of time.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Connor Gagnon of the Punishers. In just over a period, Gagnon broke out posting five points that included a hat trick....
Tuesday May 19
(4)Hellenic Republic vs Expos(1)
The summer season has finally hit. Tuesday kicked off the season opener between the Hellenic Republic and the Expos in game that saw Pantelis Palioudakis and the Republic start their night the right way. A 3-0 third period lead was built and W.Tang was headed for a shutout until E.Bakopanos spoiled it on the power play with just over two minutes remaining. With four different goal scorers striking, the Hellenic Republic got balanced offence that included the game winning goal in the first period courtesy of M.Harper.
(5)Smooth Sailors vs Smackdaddys(2)
The Smooth Sailors scored four third period unanswered goals, and G.Follano made 25 saves to lead his club passed the Smackdaddys on Tuesday night. The barrage of goals came as of the two minute mark of the final frame where J.Velenosi evened the score at two goals a piece. Marco Diaco immediately put the Smooth Sailors up shortly after and S.Liparota along with J.Palmitano closed off the night adding insurance markers. The Smackdaddys got both their tallies from M.Chenier and N.Gilbert as the only two players to solve G.Follano. The Smooth Sailors look to be stacked up with talent and depth and have already shown that they expect nothing less than a perfect season.
(5)Spartans vs Rhum & Coke(2)
Maybe it was a question of being new to the division but the Rhum & Coke settled things after falling behind 3-0 in the first period. The Spartans did their homework early enough and kept the game in check en route to a 5-2 win. P.Karvouriaris had a multi goal game, J.Mandracchia notched the winner late in the first period and C.Stavriadis allowed only two goals in the span of two minutes. Despite the loss, the Rhum & Coke can take plenty of positives after dropping their season opener versus an established opponent.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Willy Tang of the Hellenic Republic. The net minder was two and a half minutes away from recording a shutout in a 4-1 win over the Expos....
Wednesday May 13(A Finals)
(5)Red Lite vs Royal Flush(1) Game 2
With their backs against the wall, Red Lite looked to regroup to even the series at one game a piece. The Royal Flush knew they needed the better start to the match and despite grabbing a 1-0 lead, N.Vargas Dias responded within moments to even the score. That tally led to a strong finish to the second period where Red Lite went up
3-1, only to kill 18 more minutes. Y.Labonte and D.Morency complemented each other on the first three goals of the game, and N.Vargas Dias made sure to seal the contest by posting his second in a yawning cage.
(4)Royal Flush vs Red Lite(6) Game 3
The opportunity was give two times for the Royal Flush to get it done, and as much as they challenged a powerhouse team, they weren’t able to reach the finish line on time. Only six minutes in, Y.Labonte and M.Frechette already made the score 2-0 putting immediate pressure for the Royal Flush to adapt. That lead only increased as the match went on that saw Frechette bury his second of the contest for what appeared to be a comfortable 4-0 lead with only one period remaining. Despite having to climb a big mountain, the Royal Flush never gave up showing plenty of resilience by winning the final frame 4-2.C.Valois planted some concern when he reduced the gap by two goals with still 12 minutes to play. But as time went on, M.Lebrun calmed his bench by tapping in an easy goal with a feed from Mathieu Duguay.
So often, Red Lite finds a way to get it done. They weren’t the most convincing regular season team and despite being down 1-0 to the Royal Flush, the legendary squad didn’t have to convince many for what they’ve accomplished. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, we would like to congratulate Yannick Labonte, Mathieu Lebrun, Paul Roy and the rest of Red Lite for capturing the A Premier division title.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Yannick Labonte. The Red Lite captain showed conviction in game two by putting up three straight points before scoring games three first goal to put his club in the drivers seat the rest of the way....
Wednesday May 13(B Finals)
(1)Capitals vs All Blacks(8) Game 3
The way both games one and two went by ending in overtime, nobody could have seen this one coming. Totally out matched, the Capitals saw a superior team show up when it counted the most. The All Blacks did everything right on this night by winning every frame, almost every battle along with defending properly from start to finish. S.Ghilarducci just finished playing with Red Lite, and with barely anytime to rest, the cardio machine found a way to riffle three straight goals for his club. D.Traversy, also played earlier in the F division with the Werewolves showed no signs of fatigue by posting up two tallies. The only bright moment for the Capitals came when A.Boucher found a way to solve F.Rolland. After a season of texting his boys along with showing great leadership, J-F Pilon has plenty to feel good about. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, we would like to congratulate the captain and the rest of his troops for winning the B division championship.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Francis Rolland. Many pulled their weight on this night, but F.Rolland still had to make the key saves in order for the All Blacks to get it done....
Monday May 11(Finals)
(1)Capitals vs Bramabulls(4) Game 1
A.Mirolla and J.Mandracchia combined with six points powering the Bramabulls to a 4-1 win over the Capitals. Together, they form a formidable combination of skill and plenty of talent picking apart the Capitals defence especially as of the mid way point of the game. The Bramabulls gave up the first goal but bounced back immediately finishing the second period strong and the third period even stronger. After facing over 25 shots, J.Beaudry completed part of his task by earning an important win.
(6)Capitals vs Bramabulls(3) Game 2
Once the third period hit, the Capitals surged with four goals to force a third and deciding game. The division leaders weren’t planning to go down that easy as efforts from six different goal scorers came through to solve the Bramabulls net minder. The Capitals scored twice on their power play, got the winner from A.Boucher, and a 24 save performance from C.Fortin.
(1)Bramabulls vs Capitals(0) Game 3
D.Verta broke a scoreless tie, and J.Beaudry shines once more as the Bramabulls did just enough to capture the C division title. Each side had 15 minutes to get it done which only suggested how important that first goal was. Verta received a feed from J.Mandracchia by the twelve minute mark of the game which left only three minutes for J.Beaudry and the Bramabulls to kill off. The Bramabulls didn’t share the record the Capitals had in the regular season, but as proven so many times in most sports, the playoffs are a completely different ball game. Anthony DiPerna and the Bramabulls have plenty to be proud of once more. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, we would like to congratulate the Bramabull captain and the rest of his troops for getting it done.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Jonathan Beaudry. After allowing only one goal in game one, Beaudry shut the door in game three enabling the Bramabulls to take it all....
Monday May 11(Finals)
(2)Armadillos vs Left Wings(2) Game 1
With game one nearly in the bag got compromised when M.DoCouto scored a late power play goal to even the game for the Left Wings. Down 2-0 after two periods, the Left Wings took control of the contest netting two unanswered tallies to take the win away from the Armadillos. The Armadillos were the better team for two periods getting their goals from P.Karigiannis and T.Baltzis before letting the final frame slip away.
(4)Left Wings vs Armadillos(1) Game 2
The pieces fell into place for the Left Wings as they showed everyone that they are champions of their division. After a 1-1 first period tie, S.Lincourt and B.Brathwaite put the Left Wings in the driver’s seat leaving only one more period to kill. At that point, it was all motivation and adrenaline as every player made sure to do their part to their fullest potential. G.Gaitanis made sure to add some insurance with his second of the game and F.Vigliotti limited the divisions best regular season team to only three goals in two games. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, we would like to congratulate Nick Sotiropoulos and the rest of the Left Wings for winning the D Monday division.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Freddy Vigliotti. Still going strong, the veteran net minder captures the championship by allowing only three goals in two games....
Sunday May 10(E1 Finals)
(2)Red Vipers vs Red Nose(6) Game 1
Red Nose opened up the series with a 6-2 pounding over their rivals on Sunday night. Red Nose got contributions from five different players and built a 5-2 lead only 13 minutes into the contest. M.Bourassa made some noise scoring twice while feeding two teammates and J-P Gagnon bounced back to go flawless after giving up two first period goals.
(5)Red Nose vs Red Vipers(1) Game 2
Being down 3-0 after one period, the Red Vipers couldn’t overcome the deficit as Red Nose captures the E1 Sunday night division championship. M.Bourassa didn’t stop from where he left off as the centre man scored twice once more that included a back breaking short handed marker early in the first period. M.Latreille extended the lead on the power play and J-P Gagnon went perfect in nets up until the late stages of the second frame. Each side knew the series was wrapped up at that point which left only 15 minutes for Red Nose to grab what they’ve been playing for all season. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, we would like to congratulate Sylvain Laniel, Giovanni Delia and the rest of Red Nose for winning it all.

Sunday May 10(E2 Finals)
(2)Bramabulls vs Lounge 5(4) Game 1
Capitalising on their opportunities, Lounge 5 scored once on the power play and once short handed in a double up win over the Bramabulls. B.Daniele sent an early message scoring the games first goal only 9 seconds into the contest, and was able to add his second in a short handed situation by the nine minute mark of the third deflating any hopes of a Bramabull comeback. Lounge 5 took this game by jumping off to the better start and by never allowing the Bramabulls to even the score.
(4)Lounge 5 vs Bramabulls(3) Game 2
On three occasions, Lounge 5 grabbed the lead and despite giving it up, the end result was good enough to reach their final destination. D.Grasso put the Bramabulls in a great position to grab the lead after posting all three goals, but kept getting frustrated from their former net minder R.Chieco, who made incredible saves. Once again as expected, B.Daniele was the catalyst for Lounge 5 as the lanky d-man scored two more goals and added an assist to finish with six points in two games. Despite what the standings looked like prior to the series, if both these clubs showed up with a full roster in which they did, no one could have known who was going to take it all. Lounge 5 started off better in both games and had to battle hard until the very end in order to defeat a team like the Bramabulls. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, we would like to congratulate Anthony Rossi and Lounge 5 for achieving their goal.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Biaggo Daniele. In two games, Daniele had a total of four goals and two assists and was a major reason why his club got to hoist the E2 Sunday night trophy....
Thursday May 7(Finals)
(4)Brewers vs Mighty Drunks (1) Game 1
If there is one team you don’t want to trail against, it would be the Brewers as the Mighty Drunks found out how hard it is to battle back. The men in blue put together two first period goals and led the match 4-0 by the mid way point of the third period until the Mighty Drunks finally cracked the barrier. D.Colatosti was a force notching the back to back tallies while setting up D.Verta, who also had a three point game. C.Muccino was solid, often keeping his team in the game, and stopped all but one shot from G.Chountalos.
(1)Mighty Drunks vs Brewers(2) Game 2
With only one think in their minds, the Brewers put everything they had out there to capture a well earned championship. Things got a little interesting in this one, but C.Muccino and company stood tall in finishing off their opponents in two straight games. The Brewers played well from start to finish and grabbed the lead twice that included a big power play goal from C.Moutafis. When a team is able to limit a good opponent to only two goals in two games, speaks volume of how structure, discipline and plenty of experience plays a role. Tonight, the Brewers erased the memories of how things ended in their previous finals by taking the crown as champions once more. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, we would like to congratulate Laz Papadopoulos and the Brewers for taking it home.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to C.Muccino. Two goals against in two games merits the honour for the combative net minder....

Wednesday November 19
(7)Generals vs Royal Flush(0)
The Generals were able to put last weeks outcome behind them quickly as they handed the Royal Flush a 7-0 crushing to open their season. J.Bradley had goals in every frame for a hat trick and K.Kuczmarski also notched three tallies while S.Comptant got the other marker. The Royal Flush didn’t have the roster they hoped for and barely got any scoring attempts on M.Gallant who easily earned a shutout.
(6)All Blacks vs Hustlers(3)
After a wild opening period, the All Blacks continued their progress and eventually doubled up the Hustlers. S.Ghilarducci opened and closed the scoring while adding a helper on the game winning tally. The Hustlers had a decent start riffling two first period goals but struggled to get the ball in the net the rest of the way. N.Tzaferis and his captain T.Bozinakis combined for four points in the loss.
(1)Capitals vs Rated R(0)
One tally, along with tight defence and solid goaltending was enough for a Capitals victory. C.Valois struck late in the first period and the Capitals never looked back as they protected the lead the rest of the way. Each goaltender lived up to their expectations that saw J-F Aumais collect the shutout while his counter part A.Caruso was a rock as well allowing only one goal.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to J-F Aumais. The veteran net minder stood strong between the pipes allowing the Capitals to grab a 1-0 win over Rated R....

Amanda Lalande did a fine job assembling many young talented players and put up a good fight against a team that is still in their prime.
The Quebec ball hockey association would like to thank all five captains (Melie Legris of Les Bonobos, Brittany Diabo of the Montreal Warriors, Lorraine Bourcier of Equipe Quebec, Amanda Lalande of Les Diablo de Montreal and finally Vanessa De Grandpre of Dek Hockey Drummond) for making it happen and putting together what was an exciting brand of hockey.
