Friday December 20 (Final)
(2)Pylons vs National (9) Game 1
National torch Pylons in blowout win
The Pylons left much to be desired from their performance in game 1 as they fell by a landslide to National. The series turned fast into the Nationals favour after posting a 3-0 lead by the eight minute mark of the first period. They commanded play right from the start and never looked back leaving the Pylons in disbelief for how one-sided the entire game went. Contributions came from everyone with nobody really stealing the show. C.Dagenais, M.Pinheiro and Y.Dube did score two goals each while Rubens Morne set up many plays resulting in five assists. At no point did the Pylons grab any sort of positives. Knowing that game two wasn’t going to get any easier, the Pylons tried to pick up from their poor play in order to put out a better outing in the ensuing match.
(8)National vs Pylons (2) Game 2
National in a league of their own, crowned winners of Masters 35+ division
After often finding themselves on the short end of the stick, National finally achieved what they have been thriving for. There was no doubt National displayed strong determination and dedication throughout the entire series. Their game plan was to control the game, pace and power the Pylons into submission. The execution looked perfect at times that saw many goals look prettier than the other. Even though the Pylons tried to adjust a specific game plan in order to slow National down, nothing was going to work on this night. Just like in game one, the win came courtesy of a collective team effort. M.Pinheiro scored once while setting up four different teammates. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, congratulations go out to Marc Pinheiro and National for winning the Masters 35+ division.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Marc Pinheiro. The captain took nothing for granted on Friday night as he led by example collecting a bunch of points to help lead his team to victory.
