Our season has come to an end! Before we get to it, HTBHL would like to thank each and every one of you for participating. We saw some new faces on the floor this season and all were good people!

Huge thanks to Shawn Blais and his helpers for scorekeeping. Shawn got everything to us quick to have everything updated as fast as possible! Also, although not all of you will agree, we want to thank our referees who have the hardest job in the world. Without your efforts there is no league, so thank you!

Lastly, we want to thank all captains who take the time to organize their teams and spares each and every week. Players often take you for granted but we know the work you put in to it and thank you for doing it.

Now, onto the recaps:

Tide Pods vs Mi Casa Su Caza

HOLY HOT! The rink is cooking tonight and players are sweating already and it’s only into the warm up. Game 1 tonight was the 3rd place game.  Tide Pods vs. Mi Caza Su Caza. Both team starting line ups were thin and on the warmest night of the season both teams only had 2 spares. TP would score less then a minute in to open the scoring but MCSC Vet Sean Frewen would score on a short side squeaker with TPS goalie cheating a bit a minute later. MCSC would go up 2-1 thanks to a pretty Dan Ballem goal where he danced around a d-man and went high glove side. The score would remain with out change until the mid time buzzer. Halfway through the second period TP tied the game, giving themselves some momentum. The next five minutes were back and forth, TP clear the lose ball from harms way was the closest thing to a goal. IN the last five minutes Ben Tait stepped up. He scored two quick goals on the door step to give his team a 4-2 lead. MCSC pulled the goalie in the final minutes to no avail; TP takes third 4-2.

Luminators (2) vs Tequila Shooters (1)

The Finals! The much anticipated top two team laid it out on the line to be claim the title. The play went back and forth with both teams getting shots but no huge opportunities.  It wasn’t until the fifteen minute mark, TS carried the ball into the slot with the odd man rush, the pass went down to the short side of the net, where it was pass across to the wide open Sophie Berthiaume who buried it. Two minutes later Lumz came down the floor the shot was wide but Mona LeBlanc was on the side of the net and backhanded it high over the goalie tying the game. Halfway through the period TS dumped the ball in Shawn Blais raced to the ball took the sharp angle shot beating the goalie short side over the shoulder. TS added to their lead giving themselves a 3-1 cushion with eight minutes left. With some more nice passing TS entered the zone with a two on one, the pass came across to Pat Desjardins who scored the fourth goal on the one timer. TS just killed the penalty when Lumz got the back low in the slot and Bill Fong beat the glove and cut the lead in half. Seconds later Lumz came down the floor again and Derick Asirvatham made the huge save ending the period with TS up 4-2. Five minutes into the second half Lumz were on the breakaway, with some quick hands they looked like it was a goal, but Asirvatham came up with another huge save. Lumz picked up the tempo and looked more thirsty pinning TS in their own end coming close a couple of times.  TS beat the D off the wall to go in alone, MC Chartrand flashed the blocker to keep the score at 4-2. Lumz were in the box, TS moved the ball found Darren Asirvatham on the point, with his signature more he spun and backhanded into the top corner. The succeeding faceoff Lumz enter the zone and Dave Woods blasted it over the glove, 5-3. TS went on two score another goal, which gave TS the win 6-3, TS Champs.
