As even as it gets, Village gets a shootout win
Santa's Village 1 Canobie Lake 1 F
The winner of this game would advance to the finals, but as luck
would have it, they tied again forcing a mini game.
Canobie Lake scored early in the first, then Santa's Village tied it
late in the 2nd setting up a Winner Take All third period. But
nobody scored, so it was only fitting that game 2 would end in a tie
as well. And that's when it got all confusing.
Santa's Village 1 Canobie Lake 0 F
Going into the seldom used mini game 3, the teams skated 4 on 4 for
5 minutes. Nobody scored here either, but Trevor picked up a penalty
with 45 seconds left, and then it got even more confusing for some.
The Lake killed off that 45 seconds and also the 15 that carried
over into OT. That 5 minute sudden death would go scoreless as well,
setting up a sudden death shootout.
The home green team elected to shoot first, and Trevor went. He
deked out goalie Rollie, but failed to lift his shot past the fallen
goalie and his attempt failed.
It looked like the red team was going to send out Don Fortini, but
they were just kidding. Derek Osbahr would take the shot with a
chance to win it, and he did just that, roofing a shot that sent
Santa's Village to play the navy Water Country team next week for
the Coffee Cup.
