Holes and Comets go as far as you can go to get a winner.


The Holes made it clear, there would be a third game in the series.

Todd Twombly scored 3 in the first and set up Jimmy D. for another as they grabbed a 4-0 lead.

A nice individual effort by Trevor Legere got the Comets on the board, as he rung one in off the far post. But T2's fourth goal of the game just before the 2nd period buzzer would put the game out of reach.

Wood and Long tacked on third period goals as the Holes reigned Purity Supreme in a 7-2 win in game 2.

"We were up by so many goals, that we were able to rest our better players for the mini game, and get guys like Whittemore, Wood, and Zargaj alot of ice time at the end of this game."


Game 3 needed both the OT and the shootout to finally get a winner. Neither team had any real good chances, as both teams played it pretty safe. A couple of missed passes could have sent guys away on a breakaway, but it was either fatigue or lack of skill that prevented that.

So the teams went to the shootout. And after a 5 minute delay, the green team finally took their shot.

Mike Boccuzzi would stop three shooters in a row in the sudden death shootout, while sub goalie Matt stopped the first two Black Hole shooters.

When coach Armand sent out Andy Long for the 3rd shot, we thought it was a joke. Even Long thought it was a joke. But Andy took the puck, went in, and cooly put the puck between the legs of the goalie for the win.

"This is stuff you dream about," said Long with tears in his eyes. "This is two outs in the bottom of the 9th stuff. Real American dream scenario."

So the Holes move on to the Title game as expected, while the Comets advance to the Consolation Game, as expected. Still, a nice job by the underdog last place green team.

"If you would have told us back in November when we lost 4 in a row and fell into last place that we'd be here in the shootout with them, we'd be okay with that," said Jim Wilkinson. "But if you told us Andy Long was gonna win it for the, we'd probably would have forfeited the series."
