D1 Playoffs- Fall Semi Finals
Thunder Turtles 12 Terkk’s Computer Services 11
Sudden Death overtime in Division 1 playoffs…it doesn’t get much better than that. And with light benches, both the speed of the game and efficacy of passing were over the top. For the die-hard Turtles, Connor Stump scored 5 goals and 3 assists, John Hunter 4 goals and 5 assists, and Jake Tackett 3 goals and 3 assists. There was no bench. For Terrk’s Neil Conway fired in 7 goals from every angle, and 3 assists on the ones he didn’t score. Brandon Tackett had 4 goals and 3 assists for Terkks---with help and assists from teammates Jeff Havel (2), Adam Grady (1) and goalie Ritchie K(1). The win in net to Brady Kloss for the Thunder Turtles.
Conway Land Title 7 Old, Fat & Drunk (Erie) 5
A volatile upset took form when Mike Ingenthron of Conway Land Title ripped 3 of his 4 goals early in the contest. Goals by Jason Wiess, Neil Conway and Brandon Tackett sealed the deal and a spot in the Championship. Erie’s failed comeback was led by Mike Timms with 4 goals and Captain Tony Rondinelli with a goal and an assist. Assists were added by Chris Merski (1) and Jake Binney (2) for Erie. The goalie dual was brilliant, with Michael Thompson prevailing in an equally stunning performance by Adam Grady.
Kudos to Brian Dolan for a night of excellent officiating.
