Excalibur goes into beast mode after embarrassing game one loss, crowned champions
For how lopsided game one was favoring the Degenerates, it seemed farfetched that the Excalibur had much of a chance to bounce back into the series. The opening contest was completely dominated-from a more committed side resulting in five goals while barely giving up a scoring opportunity. S.Marricco continued his pace riffling three markers in the first period alone. Then, what appeared to be a route to an expected path turned into an instant t downfall for the Degenerates. The Excalibur did the right thing by striking early to finally get the monkey off their back. That one goal sent a shock wave to their bench as many more followed leaving the Degenerates in disbelief on what was slowly unwinding in front of all of them. Still, no matter how embarrassing the loss, a 12 minute game was left over for a potential turn around. Unfortunately for the Degenerates, the nightmare continued and the Excalibur just went about their business adding four goals in a 4-1 decisive score. F.Bchara led his teammates up front notching five tallies in three games. But perhaps the most significant piece to the puzzle was the play of S.Sauk. After looking average in game one, the net minder was in a league of his own in the following two games. Sauk stole the show making plenty of remarkable saves .Only one goal went by S.Sauk, who was absolutely brilliant throughout the rest of the series. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, congratulations go out to Scott Sauk and the Excalibur for winning the 4v4 division.
