We had a great Week 1! Things started off with our opening ceremony which was emceed by DJ PK.
In our first game we had a face-off between last seasons championship game, Hertz and Aware. Things were pretty evenly matched, ending the first period 0-0. Hertz scored 2 goals in the second period, with Aware cutting Hertz’s lead in half when they scored with 4 minutes left in the second. In the third period, Aware just opened things up, scoring 4 unanswered goals in the third to give them a 5-2 win over Hertz.
The Rolling Stone Pizza Player of the Game went to the hot young player out of Pattaya, Aaro Vuorma for scoring 2 goals late in the game.
In our second game, we had the Novotel Spitfires going head to head with TRUE. Both teams scored two goals in the first period, with the Spitfires scoring 2 more in the second period. TRUE tried to make a comeback and scored one early in the third period, but the Spitfires sealed the deal by scoring their fifth goal of the night with just under 4 minutes left in the game.
