We had a great start to our playoffs, which were on February 22, 2018!
In our first game at 8:30 we had Aware vs Expedia. Aware got off to a really hot start, scoring just 45 seconds into the first period. By the end of the first period, Aware was leading 4-0. After the 4th goal, Expedia called a time out to reorganize their game plan. After this, Aware only scored 1 goal in the second period and 1 goal in the third period, but Expedia scored their 1 goal one minute into the 3rd period. The final score of the game was Aware 6, Expedia 1. The Rolling Stone Pizza Player of the Game went to Ollie Moyse for his hat-trick on the night.
In our second game of the night, we had the Sukhumvit Spitfires against Hertz. If you look at the last 2 games of the regular season, Hertz seemed to be finding their stride, and they scored the first goal of the game just 30 seconds into the first period. Hertz scored their second goal of the night at 2:35 of the first period. Hertz played very defensively in the second period and prevented the Spitfires from scoring any goals. With just 1:47 left in the game, Moo Tengsakul scored an empty netter to seal the game for Hertz 3-0. The Rolling Stone Pizza Player went to Hertz’s netminder, Lance Parker for stopping all 27 shots.
