This was my favorite highlight of the day. In the Cub Silver final the Stallions from Colorado were down by one goal, 5 to 4, to AKS with at least 30 or so seconds left on the board. It was looking like AKS was going to take this championship. Boy was I wrong, the stallions tied the game with 1.1 seconds left in the second period to send the game in to overtime. Colorado stuns the crowd with a comeback in the second and ultimately a goal in overtime.
The event I have been waiting for, the Cub Gold final! Initially it was a close game to start. Rockets lead 3 – 2 at the midway point over Anarchy. Anarchy manages to score another goal despite the Rockets scoring two more to solidify the victory of 5 to 3.
Kiha warriors from Hawaii start strong with a 3 nill lead by half time. Las Vegas Tour Rebels put up two goals but it was not enough to get them the win. Kiha takes home the Mite Silver trophy. After the game NCR Tour Elite were welcomed on to the rink to receive their bronze medals for placing 3rd in that division.
Pee Wee club final will be held tomorrow versus Half Moon Bay Cougars and the Revision Puckhogs.
Pee Wee silver final will have the Higher rollers versus Bauer Riot tomorrow. High rollers had to play NorCal Extreme to earn a spot in the Silver final game. With one spot remaining the only team in Bauer Riots path is the Dragons of Hong Kong. Riot defeated the Dragons in a close overtime game to get to the Silver final game.
There are two Midget Silver semifinals to be played on rinks 2 and 3 as the last games for the night. All in all, it was a great day today. Phenomenal job to the little guys today! Check the websites live scoring for the results!
