2018 Finale & Summer Season Wrap Up

August 17, 2018 3:19 am Published by

What a fantastic way to end the 2018 summer season! Our finals night provided those in attendance with two action packed championship games from both the U17 and U19 divisions. Our first game of the night was in the U-19 division between top seed and defending champs – DSG, and second seed Ganas Gear. DSG came out flying in the first half by taking a 5-0 lead. After the first half they never took their foot off the peddle. Even with Ganas’ high flying offense DSG was able to take the championship for the second year in a row by the final score of 6-1. Stick taps to Evan McBride for his MVP performance. In the second game of the night top seeded Performance Central took on the fourth seeded underdog, Monsters. Performance Central came in hot and jumped out to a three goal lead early in the first half, only for the Monsters to storm back to tie it at 3-3 before the first half was over. The second half was very tight and featured some end to end action. Performance Central stood strong and was able to come away with the 5-3 victory. Second half goaltender Evan Wrightsman from Performance Central shut the door earning his Finals MVP!

Congratulations to Dick’s Sporting Good’s and Performance Central on winning their respective divisions regular season and post season championships!
