(6)Fat Roy vs Horsemen (5) S.O Game 1
Back and forth action goes to Fat Roy in shootout
Though tempted throughout a back and forth affair on Wednesday night, the Fat Roy refused to let their head to head with the high energy Horsemen slip out of their grasp. This win featured almost everything you could ask for in a meaningful game. From-the get go, both teams were off to the races generating plenty of scoring that can only give goaltenders fits. Despite the high octane offense, a 45 minute game still wasn't enough to decide a winner. The pressure would eventually take place in the shootout where both net minders had a chance to steal the show. J.Pantelis was and is always a logical choice when it comes to the breakaways. The Fat Roy forward collected two assists during the match while netting the lone shootout marker. On the flip side, the Horsemen had three attempts to get at least one but failed to solve J.Sanoudakis, who finished strong to collect an important victory.

Unlikely hero G.Lallis leads Fat Roy to glory
G.Lallis doesn't score many goals but prevents many for how sound he plays defensively. But G.Lallis made this rare one count more than your average tally. For a second straight game, this series appeared to be headed for a shootout,that was up until G.Lallis riffled the winner with only ten seconds left on the score board. Fat Roy knew how important it was to try and win this game. So with the score tied 3-3, they were firing on all cylinders making sure that the Horsemen don't get any sort if life. P.Elizardo and N.Gikas were also vital for the victory as both players collected three points each. In a series that could have easily gone either way, Fat Roy kept showing their never quit attitude that helped decide it all. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, congratulations go out to Costa Zafiropoulos and Fat Roy for capturing the F Wednesday division championship.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to George Lallis of Fat Roy. Of all the players throughout the Fat Roy line up who can ever score a huge goal and win a playoff series, G.Lallis isn't the first player that comes to mind. But when his team needed him the most, G.Lallis came through providing perhaps the mast important tally of the season.
