The Camels are again this season's Mixed A Grade Minor Premiers, having not lost a game all season. Who will Stop the Camels? The B grade minor premiers are the Foreign Invaders. Well done to both teams! Can they carry this form into the Finals? We will begin to find out next Tuesday (4th Dec) from 7:15pm as the Mixed competition finals series kicks off from 7:15pm @ the IceArenA! Check the schedule to see what time you play!
Some notes for the finals series:
Good luck to all Mixed teams competing in the finals! Commiserations to the Wolverines, who unfortunately miss out this season and get that big 'ol spoon thingo to stir the pot with and mix up a winning formula for next season!
Men's Contact Grand Final
The Men's contact Grand Final was fiercely contested on Tuesday night, with "Those Guys" facing off against "The Foreign Legion". Those guys gained an early ascendancy and controlled much of the game, but due to the solid defence of the Foreign Legion, were unable to find the back of the net with the game seemingly destined for overtime. That was until a piercing shot from Mark Crowther broke down the defences in the second half. Late in the second period, the Foreign Legion managed to score a great goal from a breakaway through Kyle Matthews, levelling it up. Those guys pounded the opposition defence as the Foreign Legion suffered a late penalty, but were unable to take advantage of it as the final hooter sounded. This put the game into a four on four overtime period, with the Foreign Legion down to three due to the penalty. The three Legionaries defended gallantly until an unfortunate mix up between the goal keeper and defence of the Foreign Legion saw Brad Mackintosh swoop in and steal the decider from under the goal keepers nose. A disappointing end to what what a thrilling battle of the top two Men's sides. One can't but feel it is a little unfair for a team that couldn't be bothered to pick a team name to take out the crown, but their on ice performances throughout the season silenced these notions making them deserved winners.
A great effort by all three teams this season and hopefully all involved enjoyed the experience and skills gained through this format and will be keen for another Men's Contact competition in the near future.
The Women's competition has been completed for this season, with only two teams there is no need for a Grand Final to decide the winner. The Champions this season are the Snow Maidens - Well done to the Maidens! Also well done to all the Beavers who battled hard against them all season. We hope all involved enjoyed the competition and gained valuable experience that can be taken into next year's National Championships where we are hoping to have multiple Women's teams. We are also hopeful that you will be keen for another Women's competition in the future as we want to grow this area of our sport and encourage more female participation.
Good luck to all in the Mixed Finals!13-Nov-18 -
