Monday August 26 (division 1 final)
Venom Crowned division 1 4vs4 Champions
Venom defeated the Punishers 4-1 & 3-1 to capture the 4vs4champiosnship on Monday night. Both victories required a maximum effort unlike the way they won many of their games during the regular season. The Punishers were the only team to really challenge Venom and it showed once again tonight. Playing with a lead always helps, and Venon was able to play ahead throughout the entire series. J.Courteau set the tone early in the first encounter while Y.Gazuri netted the winner thanks to J.DeSua's feed, who capped off a three point performance. The second match was just as close up until the early stages of the second frame where F.Labrecque collected his third assist to widen the gap by three. The Punishers did eventually capitalise on the power play courtesy of P.Arkalis but that was as close as it got. On a few occasions, the Punishers had plenty of chances to even the score. If not for M.Trivisonno bailing his club out, this series could have taken a different turn. The net minder couldn't have performed better than he did on this particular night. From- goaltender out, Venom had the balance and skill set to achieve their goal.On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, congratulations go out to Mike Trivisonno and Venom for taking the 4vs4 first division title.
