Degenerates score 2 quick goals to shift series and claim championship
What a way to turn things around. With just over a minute remaining in game one, the Degenerates trailed 2-1 and it looked like the Classics would have taken a strangle hold in the series. It took only 25 seconds for the deficit to turn into a late lead thanks to who other their than their most prolific goal scorer. S.Marricco had narrowed the gap late in the first period and ultimately decided matters with less than a minute to go. The Degenerates felt that it was only a question of time before they took control of the series. They had a much better pace winning lots of loose battles and smelled blood entering game two where they took it to their opponent. Again, it was S.Marricco filling up the net, this time claiming three more tallies en route to a 4-0 shutout victory. As much as Marricco played a significant role throughout the playoffs, the Degenerates were in sync as a collective group getting plenty of contributions-from everyone. J.Atch clearly had their backs making plenty of key stops with the help of a committed defense in front of him. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, congratulations go out to S.Sicuso and the Degenerates for finally taking it all.
