Wednesday August 9 (Round 1 Playoffs)
(6)Venom vs Fat Roy(1)
Venom stamp out Fat Roy, advance to semi finals
With this result, Venom will be moving on to bigger and better things to come. They eliminated Fat Roy with a convincing 6-1 result which now punches a ticket with the Punishers. If N.Gilbert,J.Vinet and company can play to the top of their game, then you never know what can happen despite how well the Punishers have fared all season. Both players scored twice tonight combining for six points while C.Stavriadis was in playoff form denying 24 of 25 shots. Fat Roy did put up a good challenge for most of the night but couldn’t keep up by the second portion of the game.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Nicolas Gilbert of Venom. The mobile defenseman got the ball rolling netting his clubs first two goals while setting up the third marker for a 3-1 lead.
The semi final match ups are as follows:
(1)Punishers vs Venom(4) The Punishers will be favorites going in but they can’t take Venom for granted. Each side have too many weapons up front which may come down to defense and goaltending
(2)Smackdaddys vs Tropics(3) It doesn’t get more evenly matched than this series. Both teams share the same record. The only slight thing that will motivate the Smackdaddys is that they defeated the Tropics in their last two meetings. But even at that, it won’t affect the Tropics as they’ll come out gunning.
