And this year's winners are...
Thank you to all of our teams for joining us for the Annual Frozen Biscuit Summer Bash!
Another year, another upset. This year, in the A Division, Washed Up took home the trophy over the five-time reigning champions Play It Again Sports. No one can argue that goal-tending from Matt Suyderhound was spot on- With a shut-out against a skilled PIAS offense, he clearly was a game-changer.
But the efforts of the PIAS goaltender Blake Scott cannot go unnoticed. After getting peppered with shots in the first period, and showing no signs of weakness, a hungry Washed Up offense had to kick it up a notch. With efforts from Andy Appleby and Nick Wheeler, they were able to secure a much deserved victory. Although Washed Up was short-handed (5v3) for nearly 4 minutes in the third, defensive discipline and a brick wall in net saved them against a relentless PIAS.
At the final buzzer, PIAS still fell short by two to Washed Up (Final Score: 2-0). Matt Suyderhound was awarded game MVP, and received a Warrior goalie stick courtesy of Play It Again Sports, Newport News.
Congratulations to Chris Daugherty and his team!
In the B Division, the Iceplex Elite Hockey Club (IEHL) put up a valiant fight against the Marines. Going into the third period tied 1-1, the adept Marines squad kicked their game into a new gear. Two powerplays late in the third gave them ample opportunities against a tiring IEHC. Responding with four goals total in the third, and another 17 shots on the dexterous IEHC's Scanlon, the Marines secured the championship title.
Congratulations to the Marines, and thank you for joining us this year!
In the C division, the Play It Again Sports (Green) team fell short yet again to the Huskies 2-1. This is the third year in a row the Huskies have come out with a victory of 2-1 against the seasoned Play It Again team. Shots were even, goal-tending was immaculate, but a third period goal by Mallory of the Huskies gave them the edge against the Green. Congratulations to WJ and the Huskies again this year!
