Thursday December 8(Playoffs, Round 1, 4 vs 5)

(4)Legacy vs Northstars(1)

Back to back slap shots push Legacy through to next round

With so much on the line, neither side wanted to make any sort of mistakes. This contest was your typical low scoring playoff game that saw both sides play it very cautious till the end. But at one point something has to give. Dead locked 1-1, Legacy looked to one of their game breakers to crack the barrier. E.Girouard ripped a cannon fromm near centre that completely fooled M.Croteau, and all of a sudden Legacy was on top. However, this match wasn’t done just yet with the very same Girouard taking a four minute penalty. That call came with about four minutes remaining in the game, more than enough time for a power play goal. Unfortunately, you know it’s not meant to be when a similar goal goes in like the one of E.Girourad. This time, S.Robineault took lessons fromm his most valued linemate by notching an identical tally. What made that even worse for the Northstars was that it came shorthanded. Legacy held on at that point and capped off a hard fought win when their cornerstone d-man T.Bozinakis found the empty cage.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Eric Girouard of Legacy. If timing is everything, than E.Girouard proved it with a blistering slap shot that snapped a late 1-1 tie.

This win advances Legacy to the semi finals where they’ll take on a familiar opponent. The River Rats will be eager and anxious to take on one of their rivals. Although the odds may favor the River Rats for finishing in first place, Legacy will try and prove everyone wrong once more with the amount of recent success. Discipline will surely be a key factor in this series as both sides work an excellent power play.

The other semi final match up will feature the Bramabulls taking on the Left Wings. Theoretically the Bramabulls know what they have to do but it’s easier said than done. Can the Bulls stop J.Adamou, J.Provost-Blais and company? The entire game plan needs to revolve on those two players. If they can be contained than the Bulls will be fine, if not, then the Left Wings will be playing for the C Thursday division title.

Thursday December 8(Quarter-finals)

(7)SBS Trashers vs Street Ballers(0)

Street Ballers picked apart by high-octane Trashers

With the SBS Trashers hungry to begin what could be a long playoff run, the division leaders meant business in their decisive win over the Street Ballers. The SBS Trashers grew stronger as the game went on. It was by the second period where the powerless Street Ballers fell apart. J.Scalia and M.Elfassy each scored power play goals building a 4-0 lead after two frames. P.Hodhod along with Elfassy went on to add their second of the night while F.Gentile controlled the back end accumulating four helpers. The Street Ballers attempted almost 20 shots and were unable to solve R.Pampena. Now that this round is out of the way, the SBS Trashers will enter the semi finals in their quest for a repeat to the final.

(7)Chiefs vs Carnage(2)

Chiefs pummel Carnage in 7-2 rout

The Chiefs made sure to start strong and they did building a 3-0 first period lead before countering any hopes of a Carnage comeback. Using their three centers and two sets of wingers, the veteran side got contributions fromm many players. But it’s not only the forwards that produce in this club. P.Cardillo and N.Gilbert provide just as much offence as both defensemen combined for three straight goals. D.Galloro got the ball rolling striking first and last to finish his night with five points. The Chiefs couldn’t ask for a better game dominating in most areas. S.Pare held a tight ship up until the early stages of the third period where S.Bourlakos’s finally solved the stubborn net minder.

(2)Werewolves vs P.E.Y.O(8)

J.Courteau and P.E.Y.O oust Werewolves, punch ticket to semi finals

It came at a time when the game was already out of reach, but nothing should be taken away fromm anybody who can score four goals. J.Courteau had a field day by the third period. The rugged forward did more in one frame that most players do during a season. With the score 4-1 after two periods, J.Courteau put the game away posting four tallies. He did get help by B.Deslauriers who normally puts the ball in the net, but decided to be generous instead since it’s the holiday season. Prior to the onslaught, J.Pantelis continues to score as a well as the crafty centre man added two more goals. The Werewolves don’t usually give up so many, especially in the most important time of the season. Despite a close first period, this match belonged to only the P.E.Y.O.

(7)Deadlast vs French Connection(4)

Deadlast use speed to outlast French Connection

The French Connection have all the necessary basics of what it takes to do well except for maybe one thing, and that is speed. With the help of a couple of quick forwards, Deadlast used their speed to their advantage. K.Kakivelis is an example of it as the forward opened the scoring before adding his second that stood up for the winner. For two straight periods, this match wasn’t even close. Deadlast entered the third period up 5-1 before the French Connection finally woke up. The Trailing side scored three straight goals that included two with the man advantage to pull within one. But as much as the comeback was in effect, the momentum eventually got crushed when N.Gikas and J.Skafidas each scored to secure the win. M.Nikas collected four points and J.Sanoudakis kept his club in it when it mattered the most facing up to 26 shots.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Jonathan Courteau of the P.E.Y.O. In one period alone, the sharp shooter struck four times to help secure an 8-2 win over the Werewolves.

In a night where all the favorites came in, each side will enter the next phase, and that is the semi final round. The match ups are as follows:

(1)SBS Trashers vs P.E.Y.O(4) Goal scoring and solid goaltending won’t be an issue for both sides. That leaves one important aspect of hockey which is defense. Whoever decides to apply playing better without the ball should prevail in this battle. The SBS Trashers won both their encounters during the regular season. But that won’t bother the P.E.Y.O too much knowing that the games were extremely close.

(2)Chiefs vs Deadlast(3) Both sides will need to play two full out 45 minute games in what will likely go down to the wire. The Chiefs need to make it difficult for the Deadlast forwards. If they do that then they’ll be fine. As for Deadlast, they’ll need to figure out how to penetrate many layers of defense including a very good goalie.

...

Wednesday December 7(Round 1, playoffs)

(2)United Arms vs Raging Rhinos(3)

C.Levesque’s late goal sends Rhinos to semi finals

Much of the game felt like overtime with both sides keeping it as close as possible. After an early third period goal by D.Charbonneau, the United Arms grabbed their second lead of the night with still plenty of clock time left over. In search of an equalizer, the Raging Rhinos eventually got their opportunity on the power play. M-A Piche managed to get his name in there as the sniper tied the game by the five minute mark of the frame. At that point, neither side wanted to make any sort of mistake knowing that the next goal would almost surely decide their fate. But all things must come to an end and somewhere down the line somebody will pull through. In tonight’s case, it was the Raging Rhinos prevailing. C.Levesque scored in what felt like an overtime goal that left just over a minute left on the clock. N.Mauro and K.Haratounian gave their sides an equal opportunity to win the game, but it was N.Mauro’s extra save that may have made the difference.

(2)Underdogs vs Fat Roy(4)

Big 2-goal first period sets tone for Fat Roy

By getting their two first period goals, Fat Roy had the luxury to dictate the pace in their favor. J.Velenosi and M-A Lanenti each scored in the opening frame and J.Sanoudakis didn’t concede a tally up until the ten minute mark of the second frame. J.Eid cracked the barrier for the Underdogs in hopes of sparking more goals to come. While they did manage another tally, Fat Roy never fell behind. N.Gikas snapped a 2-2 third period tie five minutes before J.Pantelis’s added an insurance marker. The Underdogs didn’t get the start they wanted but battled back to make things very interesting. Unfortunately, it just wasn’t meant to be. Both sides took nothing for granted playing a full out 45 minute game.

(5)Armadillos vs Dragons(1)

What could have been? Dragons give up 2 shorty’s in 5-1 loss

When playing for your season, you almost have no choice for any sort of mistakes. The Dragons, on two straight attempts, rather then capitalizing on their power play managed to give up two shorthanded goals instead. That kind of a sequence only hurts your morale. P.Koutsogiannopoulos and J.Urqhart each scored with a man less and the Armadillos just fuelled the rest of the way. R.Cohen set up P.Koutsogiannopoulos’s second right before collecting his third point of the night. Looking back, the Dragons were awarded a pair of golden opportunities that could have potentially gone their way. Their only bright moment came by the five minute mark of the third period when L.Dulcetta spoiled C.Stavriadis’s shutout.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Peter Koutsogiannopoulos of the Armadillos. His early shorthanded goal along with his second tally was a big reason why the Armadillos got the better of the Dragons.

After a nail biting night, the three winners will move on to the semi final rounds. The Punishers skipped this do or die round for finishing in first place. The semi final match ups as are as follows:

(1)Punishers vs Raging Rhinos(7) As long as the Raging Rhinos keep it close than they have a chance. It’s up to the Punishers to find their openings and keep doing what they’ve done all season long.

(3)Armadillos vs Fat Roy(5) One slight advantage the Armadillos have is their experience. Although Fat Roy have years under their belt as well, C.Zafiropoulos will need to implement a strategy on how to stop or at least slow down the Armadillos transition game.

...

Wednesday December 7 (Semi Finals)

(7)Les Boys vs Scorpions(3) F2 Game 1

Scorpions couldn’t stop the bleeding, give up six unanswered goals

Up until the twelve minute mark of the second period, the Scorpions couldn’t have asked for a better performance. F.Martin had scored twice and H.Trahan was looking like nothing was getting by him anymore. But once T.Karvouriaris scored to narrow the gap, this contest was headed in a different direction. It’s no wonder that Les Boys finished with high 69 goals for in only ten game of a regular season. After tying the game 3-3 and heading into the final frame, M.Gagnon snapped the tie on the power play which set the tone for more goals to come. J.Fidrilis scored twice in that span that included Les Boy’s second power play goal on four attempts. This loss may feel bitter for the Scorpions, but they still aren’t out of it yet knowing that they’ve played well enough for two periods.

(2)Horsemen vs Fat Cats(3) F2 Game 1

Third time’s a charm, Fat Cats protect late lead

Although the Fat Cats managed to grab leads, they weren’t able to build on it long enough as the Horsemen struck twice to level the game. But with less than three minutes remaining in the match, G.Sangiovanni and his defence made sure to protect it the rest of the way. The Fat Cats got a late tally by E.Panzera after receiving a pass by J.Scalia. Each side struggled to get much of a groove going with the amount of penalty minutes taken. With this game out of the way, the Horsemen will look to adjust and find a solution to try and strike first. For now, both sides will wait a week before going at it again.

(3)Primetime vs Hellfish(8) F3 Game 1

Hellfish take advantage of missing top guns

For the Hellfish, it didn’t matter that A.Petrucco and L.Haouzi were out of the line up, but for Primetime it proved to be costly on this night .Regardless the reasons for the loss, Primetime may look back and have only themselves to blame. They managed to build a 2-0 first period lead before collapsing in a big way by the second. The Hellfish regrouped in between frames and came out storming erupting with six unanswered goals. M.Chartrand and F.Benhamadi tallied twice while D.Laurin used a big power play goal to take a 4-2 lead. Chartrand wasn’t done yet completing his hat trick by the third period. N.Bourgeois continues to roll as well as the forward accumulated five more points. After facing 28 shots, B.Verducci held his ground not allowing a goal for over two periods.

(7)UHC vs United Arms(4) F3 Game 1

UHC use special teams goals to outlast resilient United Arms

Despite tying the game on three occasions, the United Arms couldn’t get that lead they hoped for. The UHC used three special teams goals, and a one sided third period to take the opening game of the series. B.Patel came through snapping a 4-4 tie with the man advantage. Already with a pair of helpers, M.Cristiano made sure to cap off the win by providing two late insurance markers. The United Arms aren’t concerned with their goal scoring ability. J-F Aumais showed that with two goals and an assist but their defensive game will need to tighten up in order to survive the round. With a week to think about it, G.Missakian will make the adjustments required in hopes of extending the series.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Eric Panzera of the Fat Cats. The Fat Cats forward avoided overtime by netting a huge goal late in the game.That was his second point in a tight 3-2 win over the Horsemen.

...

Tuesday December 6

(4)Icons vs Bramabulls(3)

Icons start strong, Hold on for 4-3 won over Bramabulls

Rather than starting the game complacent, the Icons were an energized squad in the first period, outscoring the Bramabulls 2-0. The Bramabulls appeared to be in better form by the second notching three out of the four goals to tie the game at three. While the momentum seemed to be going their way, P.Assadi quelled some of the worries by providing a go ahead marker for the Icons. That goal left just over nine minutes which gave more than enough time for the Bramabulls to respond. But with the game winding down, J.Vrettis made sure this contest ended in regulation time. The net minder was brilliant facing 28 shots to give his club a big win to end the regular season. Both sides had no one score more than once, but J.Gagne did have the most points finishing with three helpers for the Bramabulls.

(5)Team Finland vs Smooth Sailors(4)

Win and you’re in, Finland edges top seed to solidify playoff spot

You never want to have a bad start knowing that your playoff hopes are on the line. Team Finland, who may have needed to win this contest found themselves in an early jam giving up two first period goals that included one shorthanded. But with the Smooth Sailors taking some penalties, Team Finland smelled blood. The next three goals all came with the man advantage that helped Team Finland claw back into the game. J.Tutino gave his club their first lead with his first of two on the night, and just like that, this contest was shifting in the right direction for Team Finland. However, there was still some work to be done with the game leveled at four goals apiece. The Smooth Sailors looked once more to M.Testolina to bail them out as the spark plug collected four points that included the equalizer with just over two minutes remaining. At that point, the question became can Team Finland pull out another rabbit out of the hat. After last week’s remarkable comeback versus the Smackdaddys, the magic still translated into this game when M.Raimondo bagged his clubs biggest goal of the night. Raimondo scored with only 40 seconds left on the clock and Team Finland didn’t need to worry on what the Smackdaddys did in their game versus the Bramabulls as they find themselves playing next week in a best of three series.

(4)Smackdaddys vs Bramabulls(8)

Bramabulls end season strong, Smackdaddys down after Team Finland win

The Smackdaddys didn’t have the right mind set entering this game versus the Bramabulls. Knowing that they were officially eliminated fromm a playoff berth, this contest had meaning for only one club. The Bramabulls needed to erase what happened earlier versus the Icons by getting back to their winning habits. After a 2-2 first period, the Bramabulls parted ways outscoring the Smackdaddys 6-2.E.Paquin and A.Mirolla each scored twice that saw both players combine for eight points. This result gives the Bramabulls a 6-4 regular season record, identical to the Icons as both sides will face one another in the semi finals.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Marco Raimondo of Team Finland. With only 40 seconds left in the game, Raimondo couldn’t come through at a better time providing the game winning goal and a playoff spot for his club.

Four very good teams will be going at it in a best of three semi finals on Tuesday December 13. The match ups are as follows:

(1)Smooth Sailors vs Team Finland(4) Two losses in ten games seems nice for the Smooth Sailors. But with their last defeat belonging to Team Finland, the overall standings may mean absolutely nothing. Finland is hot after pulling out two incredible wins. The Sailors also have something special going on, and that is the scoring leader of the division M.Testolina.

(2)Icons vs Bramabulls(3)Both sides have a ton of players. This series will come down to player management. P.Chiotis and A.DiPerna will need to make quick and sharp decisions over the course of the two or three potential games to see who will come out on top.

...

Monday December 5

(1)Team Haiti vs Red Lite(7)

Early jump start leads to easy Red Lite win

It didn’t take long for Red Lite to get the ball rolling, and once they did, Team Haiti knew they were done. An extraordinary five point game by K.Kuczmarski, plus an early two goals by J.Bradley helped improve the front runners to their fourth consecutive win of the season. Red Lite totally outplayed Team Haiti early on posting five first period goals. P.Raphael gave his side something to celebrate as the only player to get the better of S.Beauchamp. With the game out of reach, Red Lite let go of the gas pedal and simply played the clock in their favor. It’s a lesson Team Haiti will look to build on with still so many games in front of them.

(2)Black Knights vs HBHA(4)

HBHA score two late goals to double up Knights

With the Black Knights leading 2-1 after two periods and looking poised to collect a fifth victory, the HBHA stunned their opponent with three unanswered goals. The comeback began when J.Adamou leveled the game by the five minute mark of the third period. Then, with just over two minutes remaining, M.Arkalis notched another marker and just like that the HBHA were ahead. The HBHA never let up and kept playing till the very end to hand the Black Knights their second loss of the season. It’s never easy limiting the Knights to only two goals, but with the help of brilliant goaltending by A.Bitsakis along with a structured defensive game, anything is possible. This win places the HBHA within striking distance of the two giants ahead of them.

(3)Team Haiti vs United Armenians(0)

Team Haiti bounce back from-blow out in shutout win over United Armenians

Team Haiti couldn’t have asked for a better response after a lopsided affair earlier on to Red Lite. After netting two first period goals by H.Merone and A.Odnel, Team Haiti grabbed the control they needed to dictate the pace in their favor. The Haitian side went on to add a second period tally while making sure to give nothing to the United Armenians, who couldn’t getting any offense going. It won’t be easy but the United Armenians will need to figure out a way to get some more goal scoring done with only two so far in three games.

...

Monday December 5

Trying to keep good habits, Team X tighten up in wins over Les Coqs

With the playoffs only a week away, Team X didn’t get off their game plan and that is to defend the right way. Les Coqs noticed it with only one goal in both matches. P.Assadi faced 35 shots in two games allowing only J.Lamoureux Remo to beat him. After being out of action for a while, S.Sicuso didn’t  seem to miss a beat as the d-man was able to notch the winner in the second contest with a power play goal that beat F.Vigliotti five hole. Team X didn’t score many, but struck just enough times to collect both wins. In their four goals scored, J.Melo had a hand in all of them scoring once while setting up three different teammates. Both these victories came without four regular players by Team X. If the yellow t-shirts can have their full roster in what’s to come, than it’s up to them to perform fromm the opening draw if they plan to reach the finish line. However, one thing’s for sure is that the 1 Timer won’t budge that easily as they’ll take on Team X in a best of three series.

(1)Les Coqs vs Team X(2)

(2)Team X vs Les Coqs(0)

Venom send Jokers foreshadowing message in what’s to come

Knowing that they’ll take on the Jokers in next’s week’s semi final match up, Venom sent their opponent an early and firm message of what’s to come. Surely Venom has the fire power and more goal scoring capabilities, but the Jokers have been there before with their recent title. However, they cannot perform like they did tonight or their season will end quickly by next week. After an easy 4-0 game to open up the night, Venom used two second period goals in the second period to defeat the Jokers by a closer margin of 3-1.The Jokers did defend better in the second contest but struggled to score overall with only one goal beating M.Trivisonno. If there was one player that stood out in both games, that player was P.Franck. As a defenseman, F.Franck provided most of the offense participating in five of the seven goals. Not to be forgotten also was their leader and goaltender M.Trivissono. After facing a total of 38 shots, and despite playing with flu like symptoms, the net minder couldn’t have performed better than he did.

(0)Jokers vs Venom(4)

(3)Venom vs Jokers(1)

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Pedram Assadi of Team X. With a few key elements missing in front of him, P.Assadi made every save possible except for one to earn the player of the night.

With the regular season coming to an end, four clubs will be headed for a new conquest. The semi final match ups are as follows:

(1)Venom vs Jokers(4) It’s no secret, Venom have more fire power up front. However, the Jokers do have M.Gagnon that can shift a game on any given night. If the jokers defend well enough and get balanced contributions, than the improbable can be possible

(2)Team X vs 1 Timer(3) After the numerous times both these clubs met, you can flip a coin to see who will win. Team X have to play P-A Surprenant accordingly and they will have a chance, if not, the prolific goal scorer will send his club to the final.

...

Sunday December 4 (Quarter-finals)

(8)Romans vs Les Aces(4)

M.Testolina hat trick ensures semi final spot for Romans

It was another spectacular performance for M.Testolina as the Romans were on the right side of a goal fest on Sunday night. Testolina was able to shine for the favorites scoring a hat trick and an assist in what was a crazy game. While the score may indicate a one sided affair, Les Aces were dead even at four goals apiece after two frames. It was only by the mid way mark of the third period where the Romans found a way to pull away. What helped were their two power play goals in just over two minutes. L.Mancini snapped the tie and J.Palmitano increased the lead for his third point of the night. If not for the untimely penalties, Les Aces may have potentially caused a major upset, especially with the way Danny Brousseau was playing, who bagged a hat trick in the second period alone.

(4)Shockers vs Hit List(3)

Third period rally see Shockers erase two goal deficit, win in overtime

Just when the Hit List thought they may have had it, the Shockers stood up instead. The Shockers woke fromm the dead in the third period Sunday, rallying two goals down before scoring in overtime to stun the Hit List. C.Debonis was behind most of what happened for his club to prevail. The consistent forward participated in all three third period goals that included a pair that found its way behind A.Vivas. But as much as he sparked the whole comeback, the Shockers got their last say by another big piece of the puzzle. M.Blackman ended the night and the Hit List’s season just 90 seconds into the sudden death frame. It was a match that both sides took valuable lessons from. The Hit List played well in the first two periods with the help of their captain S.Trudel, who scored twice and provided an assist. Knowing that it takes three full periods, the Hit List couldn’t keep up long enough to shut down their opponents. While the Shockers are glad to advance, they’ll need to keep in mind not to play with fire and start their next games ready and focused.

(3)Lumberjacks vs Nighthawks(2)

Too little too late, Nighthawks fall short

With goals in every frame, the Lumberjacks did everything they needed to do and oust the Nighthawks out of the playoffs . D.Ruiz opened and closed the scoring for the Lumberjacks, who can thank N.Mackeen for keeping them in the entire match. The only slight let down for the net minder came late in the game. The Nighthawks attempted a miracle by getting their first of two goals with less than four minutes remaining. Despite the unlikely comeback, E.Medrano pulled his club within one that still over two minutes left on the clock. Unfortunately, it came a little too late for a club that trailed fromm the very beginning of the contest. The Lumberjacks won a prototypical playoff style game which they hope use in their next round versus the Shockers.

(3)Brew Crew vs Red Nose(8)

Red Rose crack Brew Crew defensive code, punch ticket to semi final

In a very uncharacteristic game, the Brew Crew didn’t know what hit them. Red Nose capitalized twice on the power play and won a decisive second period to blow the game wide open. As expected, N.Delia had a say as the natural sniper put two quick goals together to finish the frame up 5-1.By then, the Brew Crew felt beaten down despite scoring twice in short span. Y.Leroux and M.Bourassa were also a burden for the Brew Crew as both players each tallied twice. Whatever was said prior to the game definitely worked for a side that had only nine players against a full out experienced roster.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Matt Blackman of the Shockers. The calm and collective d-man upped his gear at a time of need. M.Blackman helped mount the comeback with an assist before notching his clubs biggest goal of the season in a 4-3 overtime win over the Hit List.

After four grinding battles, four clubs will head off to the next round where things will only get harder. The semi finals are a best of three series that will be played all on the same night. The match ups are as follows:

(1)Romans vs Red Nose(5) Both sides have plenty of fire power up front. Since goal scoring won’t be an issue, what may be a problem for Red Nose is how they’ll keep up in the second game with a shorter roster. Game one for the red machine will be key

(2)Lumberjacks vs Shockers(3) Two young talented teams will see each other more than their girlfriends on a Sunday night. With that, come frustrations as both sides will need to be very disciplined if they plan to advance.

...

Friday December 2

(6)Hawks vs Brewers(3)

A.Watts shines in limited duty

Even without their regular goaltender gone for a couple of weeks, it can’t be easy for a Brewers backup to be fresh. However, lo and behold A.Watts lived up to the hype on Friday night. Apart fromm the opening goal, the Hawks had to work hard to get the better of Watts and a depleted Brewers side. This was a game that wasn’t anywhere close to be being easy. If not for a solid four minute sequence, the Hawks may have gone empty handed. But with the help of A.Zarzour’s two quick tallies, the Hawks felt the tension drop knowing that their opponent would struggle to keep up. E.Capalbo and J.Melo collected three points each. Despite the loss, A.Lanni looked like the energizer bunny as the pest never stopped running creating plenty of turnovers.

(6)HBHA Seniors vs Stones(7)

Stones build confidence with win over HBHA Seniors

The Stones couldn’t ask for a better time during the season to earn a big win versus a front runner. It wasn’t pretty, and by far not easy, but the Stones did that one extra thing to get the job done. Of course T.Settino needed to be involved as the slick cornerstone player made plenty happen. After bagging two goals in less than a minute, Settino went on to set up three tallies. Y.Mouchaca benefited twice while R.Kilgour got the other. Each sided entered the final frame leveled at five goals apiece. The Stones stormed early on bagging two straight markers that included the eventual winner by A.Ferro. The HBHA Seniors normally defend better but struggled on this rare occasion. In the loss, G.Kamvosoulis scored twice while J.Bolanakis chipped away collecting four points.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Tony Settino of the Stones. Arguably one the best players of the division, T.Settino carried his club producing two goals and three helpers versus a solid HBHA Seniors side.

An extraordinary five point game by K.Kuczmarski, plus an early two goals by J.Bradley helped improve the front runners to their fourth consecutive win of the season. Red Lite totally outplayed Team Haiti early on posting five first period goals. P.Raphael gave his side something to celebrate as the only player to get the better of S.Beauchamp.

HBHA score two late goals to double up Knights

With the Black Knights leading 2-1 after two periods and looking poised to collect a fifth victory, the HBHA stunned their opponent with three unanswered goals. The comeback began when J.Adamou leveled the game by the five minute mark of the third period. Then, with just over two minutes remaining, M.Arkalis notched another marker and just like that the HBHA were ahead. The HBHA never let up and kept playing till the very end to hand the Black Knights their second loss of the season. It’s never easy limiting the Knights to only two goals, but with the help of brilliant goaltending by A.Bitsakis along with a structured defensive game, anything is possible. This win places the HBHA within striking distance of the two giants ahead of them.

(3)Team Haiti vs United Armenians(0)

Team Haiti bounce back from-blow out in shutout win over United Armenians

Team Haiti couldn’t have asked for a better response after a lopsided affair earlier on to Red Lite. After netting two first period goals by H.Merone and A.Odnel, Team Haiti grabbed the control they needed to dictate the pace in their favor. The Haitian side went on to add a second period tally while making sure to give nothing to the United Armenians, who couldn’t getting any offense going. It won’t be easy but the United Armenians will need to figure out a way to get some more goal scoring done with only two so far in three games.

The Canadian Ball Hockey Association (CBHA) is deep in preparations with Provincial hosts, the Wild Rose Ball Hockey Alberta (WRBHA) and the International Street and Ball Hockey Federation (ISBHF) to deliver a spectacular World Masters Championship event in Banff this year.


The 2016 ISBHF World Masters Championships will be held from June 1st to 5th, welcoming teams already confirmed from the US, Austria, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Greece, India, Italy and of course, Canada comprising of at least thirteen Men’s national teams in total and six Women’s national teams.
 
Using the tagline, “Masters Elevated” to promote the event, the marketing machine is in full flight. Event information, including links to hotel packages, travel information, and the sport schedule can be found at www.Banff2016Masters.com.
 
Says Shelley Callaghan, President of the CBHA, “We are so thrilled that Canada will be the Host Nation for World Masters this year. Over the years, so many countries have hosted us, and now this is our chance to welcome Masters athletes from across the international ball hockey community to our home. Banff is an incredibly beautiful part of our country, and we can’t wait to share the real Canadian experience with everyone. The sport competition is going to be outstanding of course, and with thanks to the assistance of our Provincial association, Wild Rose Ball Hockey Alberta, we know that this event will deliver a fabulous travel experience to our visitors also.”
 
With two arenas confirmed at the Fenlands Banff Recreation Centre acting as host venues, the Tournament Celebration Night confirmed on June 5th, a trade show of ball hockey vendors and suppliers from the Banff area slated to be showcasing at the event, it’s looking like being a fantastic week.
 
Hotel accommodation is booking up quickly, and teams are encouraged to reserve their accommodations at event hotels before the end of April, 2016.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for our province just like it is for the many players who will be travelling to represent their respective countries. We look forward to celebrating this amazing week of ball hockey in Banff with the players and fans".
