(3)P-Ball vs Red Lite(4) O.T Game 3
K.Kuczmarski bats in a beauty to close out series, Red Lite crowned Champions
Trailing by three goals after an ugly first period, the P-Ball rallied to tie the game 4-4 only to see it vanish by overtime. Even though the push was great for the P-Ball, it just wasn't good enough in the end. The sudden death frame was only two minutes old when K.Kuczmarki's incredible eye hand coordination came into play. The Red Lite forward made something that looks so difficult so incredibly easy by batting the ball right past P-O Girouard. Prior to the goal, J.Gagne will be wondering for a while how he missed two golden opportunities to extend the series. The P-Ball captain wasted no time-from the overtime face off creating two very good chances for himself only to get denied twice by C.Lantin. This was the first of three games that could have easily gone either way. Unfortunately for the P-Ball, they didn't get that extra break necessary to make a series of it. Red Lite did the right thing by getting the better start which only put the pressure on their opponents to respond. They got scoring efforts-from five different players that included a sweet back hand breakaway goal-from J.Daoust. In the end, like good teams often do, they find ways to win. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, congratulations go out to Carl Ghilarducci and Red Lite for adding more hardware to their already full trophy cases.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Kevin Kuczmarski of Red Lite. By using his instincts and hand eye coordination, the Red Lite forward batted the series winning goal only two minutes into overtime.
