We had a great first season topped off with a whirlwind of a post season. The first round of the playoffs started off with a the Sukhumvit Spitfires (1) facing off against Hooters Nana (2) and Sport Corner-Titanium (2) going head to head with the Aware (3).
Hooters Nana swept their best of three series against Sukhumvit Spitfires by squeaking out a win in the first game by 2-1 and in the second game, they came back in the third period to win it 5-3.
Aware got the first game of their series by trouncing Sport Corner-Titanium 6-3. Sport Corner-Titanium were able to hold of Aware’s third period comeback to win the second game 2-1. In the third game, Sport Corner-Titanium soundly beat the Aware 4-1 to move on to the finals.
Another hard fought battle for both teams at our late game on Monday night and even though Aware out shot Titanium 25 to 19, they just couldn’t stop Schachnovsky’s point streak!
