Blue 6, Black 1
Blue finished the 2011-2012 season on an 11 game winning streak, pulling away late from Black to win the DVMHL Championship. Despite the final score, the game was a tight and physical contest as Blue nursed leads of 2-1 and 3-1 while Black maintained pressure. Pete Barley scored two power play goals on nearly identical slap shots from the point, the second blast serving as the game winner.
Matt Medeiros cut the early lead to 2-1 at 4:21 of the first period on a masterful face-off win and shot combination while Black killed off one of their six penalties.
Pat Georgoff’s tally at 8:24 of the third period sealed the win for Blue, followed by two more goals – the last courtesy of a one-armed effort by Barry “The Chief” Perez.
Congratulations to Black and captain Denis Connell, who played with a severely bruised foot, on a superb season. Thanks to all captains and teams for an outstanding year.
Special thanks to League President Danny Hudyka for all of his hard work and dedication – the DVMHL would not exist without his efforts.
Photos of the Championship Day will be posted soon, as well as photos from the regular season finale and Semi-Finals.
