Monday April 23 (Division 2 final)
Underdogs pull it off with incredible comeback
When the Rebels scored two quick goals for a 3-0 second period lead, they had all but sealed to even the series with the Underdogs. Somehow it wasn't over and the Underdogs stormed back with three straight goals in only five minutes to force a shootout. They won the first game rather easily with a 5-2 result and needed only this contest to secure the championship. By sending F.Nasser and M-A Haber, the Underdogs decisions paid off with both players scoring in the breakaways. The Rebels didn't have the same luck unable to solve C.Malkoun, who denied both shootout attempts. Even though the Underdogs grabbed their 1-0 series lead, they knew that the second one would be that much harder to win. As the series turned into a battle of wills, the Underdogs put forth a burst of desperation in what was a remarkable comeback. Throughout both games, M-A Haber was their most productive player collecting a total of five points along with a shootout marker. In the end, it wasn't for nothing that the Underdogs finished first place in the regular season. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, congratulations go out to Joseph Constantin and the Underdogs for capturing the 4vs4 division championship.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to M-A Haber. There was no denying that the number 18 showed up to play like he always does. Tonight, he was involved in so many ways that resulted in 5 points and a shootout goal.
