Not Quite 10 for 10

The 8th seeded Iced Out took on the 9th seeded Heavy Breathers in the most exciting play in game in league history.  IO struck first on 1st period goals from Harris and Prindle before the HB's goal from Hoff for a 2-1 IO lead after one.  The 2nd was scoreless and IO  looked to wrap up this game until one of the most boneheaded plays in Seminary History took place. An IO player, which I won't reveal, intentionally threw his stick at the player with the ball with 2 seconds left which initiated a Penalty Shot for the HB's. Skiavo of HB's took full  advantage of the blunder and sent the game into OT.  IO recovered pretty quickly as ex captain  Mellor scored 54 seconds into OT to give his team the victory in a very entertaining game. The Top Shelf/Blues Brothers game got off to an interesting start as one of the BB's dman accidentally shot the ball into his own net while trying to wrap it around the net and boards for a goal credited to Webb to give TS a 1-0 lead early.  TS struck again on a goal from Quadt that was deflected in by a BB's player and TS added another 1st period goal from Turner for a 3-0 lead after one. BB's regrouped in the 2nd on goals from Agostinelli and Podolsky to make the score 3-2 going to the 3rd. BB's threw everything they had a TS keeper Kunin but couldn't get the equalizer and TS advanced to the semi's on some odd bounces. The next game between 7th seeded Mantis and 2nd seeded Shock and Awe was a pretty defensive game as the teams played a chess match through the first 3 periods and the game went to OT scoreless. Just as it seemed the game may go to a shootout D. Jacobeen scored with 55 seconds left and sent his team onto the next round. Keepers Mitchell and Theimann played great in net.  Another great game featured the 3rd seeded Stingrays vs the 6th seeded Fury. The S's Turbett opened the scoring with a great shot to the top corner to put his team up but the F's Jeziorski matched that for a 1-1 game  after the first.  The S's took the lead on a goal from Denne  followed by another from Fournelle for a 3-1 lead.  The league's top youngster, Keeler, took over the game scoring twice including a highlight reel short hander to tie the game up at 3. The S's were a bit rattled but a late PP helped win the game for the S's as Denne struck again before Vivaritto scored into an EN to ice it and leave the F dejected on a game they  could've won. The last game of the night was between the top seeded Loud Mouths and the 8th seeded Iced  Out.  Hawk and Doyle scored in the first for the LM's for a 2-0 lead after the first. The teams played to a scoreless 2nd before Greeney of the LM's iced the game with a 3rd period goal for a 3-0 final and shutout for Holt. 

The semi's started out with a great matchup between Shock and Awe and the Stingrays.  SNA struck first on a goal from Von Der Heydt that was matched by Turbett of the S's in his last game at Seminary before moving to Florida. The S's took the lead early in the 2nd on a goal from N. Bottorff before D. Jacobeen tied the score at 2 heading into the 3rd.  A PPG from D. Jacobeen game SNA the lead and solid goaltending from Mitchell kept the S's off of the board in the 3rd before 2 ENG's from O'Beirne and M. Jacobeen accounted for the 5-2 final in what many league players called an upset.  The other game was between the top seeded Loud Mouths and the 5th seeded Top Shelf. TS's Leblanc struck first for a 1-0 lead after the 1st. The LM's got back to back goals in the 2nd from Hawk and Greeney for a 2-1 but TS's Quadt scored the equalizer to head to the 3rd tied at 2.  The teams went back and forth for most of  the period before Van scored with 2:35 left to give TS the lead and Turner iced the game with and ENG for a 4-2 final. 

The finals had Shock and Awe looking to become the 10th different champion in D2 in 10 seasons against Top Shelf who were one of the 9 previous champs.  TS's Turner got his team on the board first 2 first period goals and a quick 2-0 lead. Leblanc proceeded to give his team a very comfortable 3-0 lead with a late 2nd period goal. SNA managed to get back into the game with a goal at the very end of the 2nd from M. Jacobeen to make the score 3-1 entering the 3rd. D. Jacobeen scored again for SNA and all of a sudden we had a nail biter for the championship. SNA tried desperately for the equalizer that never came and TS captain Turner iced the game with an EN Hat Trick and the championship. Way to lead your team to the Cup their Craig.  Congrats to Craig Turner of TS for being named playoff MVP, an unnamed player for reasons of not accepting his award (thanks to Brian Yurkus for accepting on his behalf) for being named MVP of SNA during the playoffs and George Kunin of TS for being named playoff MVG.  

Congrats also to the regular season award winners as well:  Justin Vivaritto for leading the league with 23 points and 16 goals, Kris Cuccinelli of Blues Brothers for leading the goalies with a 1.60 GAA and Adam Eisenstein of Loud Mouths and Scott  Mitchell of Shock and Awe for leading all goalies with 6 wins.  Here's hoping for another new team winning D2 next season to get the run started again. Can Shock and Awe finally get over the hump or maybe Fury and Heavy Breathers can get it done? Good luck to all in the summer/fall season already underway...
