Wednesday January 8 (E Final)
Fat Roy claims a memorable title
Fat Roy made this season one to remember. After going down in what was a one sided affair, Fat Roy never gave up battling back to level the series before capping off a thrilling overtime finish in game three. As one would expect after dropping the opening contest, desperation was apparent in the level of play from Fat Roy. D.Lombardi brought the fire power early on in game two and wasn’t afraid to use it providing two key goals to set the comeback in motion. Clearly it gave Fat Roy a boost that translated into them gaining control of the match. While they continued to put on the pressure after finding their footing, Wocafloka couldn’t get any of their momentum going. Maybe that was because they fell behind early while dealing with a shorter bench versus a team that rolls three lines. Regardless the reasons, nothing was yet decided as both teams had all but fifteen minutes or possibly more to claim their pride. With game three left over to decide matters, both teams made sure to not give much head way. A.Agudelo struck first for Wocafloka, who till that point had an incredible final by collecting his sixth goal of the night. However, that didn’t sink the moral of Fat Roy as A.Angelis responded shortly after to eventual put this series in critical condition. Then, barley two minutes into the sudden death frame, C.Fragkiudakis lifted Fat Roy to a memorable night by posting the championship winner. As the Fat Roy bench exploded with noise, his teammates raced to mob him to celebrate the special moment. It seemed only fitting that this win came the way it did for a team that carried plenty of magic late in the regular season and throughout the playoffs. On behalf of Hockyballe.com, congratulations go out to Costa Zafiropoulos and Fat Roy for claiming the E Wednesday title.
