Punishers stampede their way to glory
F.Russo's game winning goal of the first game, and S.Bentivegna's back to back tallies in the second contest couldn't have come at a better time for the Punishers, who showed why they are deserving of the 4vs4 Monday division. The Dragons barely let the opening encounter slip away, but were nowhere to be seen in the second game where the Punishers were simply too good. Once Bentivegna struck on the power play for the 3-0 lead, the writing was written on the wall. C.Retsinas went on to add two insurance markers and P.Stamkopoulos had a near perfect night allowing only one goal in both games. The Punishers came out hard from the get go, and once they turned the screw, they literally blew past the Dragons. When looking back at how the Punishers started their regular season, no one would have thought that they would reach this potential height. But as time went by while tweaking some adjustments here and there an average looking team turned quickly into a sleeping giant. John Fidrilis knows what it takes to win a championship as the captain has put together plenty of success in the past. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, congratulations go out to the Punishers captain and the rest of his club for winning the 4vs4 division.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Peter Stamkopoulos of the Punishers. After yielding only one goal in two big games, there was no doubt that Peter Stamkopoulos was up to the task earning a well deserved title.
