Wednesday August 28 (Final)
(4)Bramabulls vs Knights (1) Game 1
Bramabulls use a good start as priority
The final round of the playoffs got underway on Wednesday night with the Bramabulls and the Knights opening up their series. It was the favoured Bramabulls who took game 1 with the help of four straight markers. After setting up S.Liparota to get the ball rolling, J.Palmitano doubled the lead just prior to the first period ending. The Knights, despite falling behind were still in it, but knew their chances started to diminish when Liparota struck for a second time. There was almost no way that the Bramabulls would falter a three goal margin. The Knights did grab one positive in this encounter, and that was to get the final say courtesy of late power play goal-from M.Kardum. Until that point, G.Follano was rock solid needing only four minutes to earn a shutout.
(0)Knights vs Bramabulls(7) Game 2
Bramabulls cruise to F Wednesday division title
Unlike their series against Carnage, the Bramabulls weren't messing around versus the Knights. This time, they made sure to grab a good start, and in doing so gave no chance for the Knights to respond. It was evident from- the drop of the ball that the Bramabulls meant business. M.Maggiore used two first period goals to start what was a foreshadowing of more to come. Even though both sides may have felt where all this was headed, B.Sansotta's goal surely confirmed the eventuality of this final. The Bramabulls carried a 4-0 lead heading into the final frame where they kept pressing by adding three more tallies. The one area that the Knights were hoping for to giving themselves any sort of chance lied in the idea of playing with the lead. Unfortunately, they just ran into a very determined Bramabulls club, who didn't take their opponent for granted. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, congratulations go out to Anthony DiPerna and the Bramabulls for capturing the F Wednesday division championship.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Gerardo Follano of the Bramabulls. In two games, G.Follano was as close as perfect can get. The net minder confidently led his team to a championship by allowing only one goal all night.
