Playing with a total “team first” mentality and a combination of stellar goaltending, stingy defense and an explosive offense, the D'oh-Nuts finished with a record of 5 wins no losses, including 25 goals for,2 goals against and 3 shut-outs. The Championship game against Nepean KFC went to double overtime before Nick B picked up the puck in his own end, raced down to the other end and was able to slide it in under the goalie with 49 seconds remaining.
Support from family and friends in the stands throughout every minute of every game certainly did not go unnoticed by the players.
Everything from the cow bell, bugle, vocal cords, red goal light, huge banner and even our Homer Simpson mascot contributed to motivating the boys to victory.
When all was said and done, the only thing from the stands that shone brighter than the goal light was the pride in the parents faces as the boys were awarded their gold medals.
Well done lads, well done indeed.
