The Knights, representing the Greater Burlington Coed Floor Hockey League defeated their Barre-Montpelier League counterparts, the Gators, by a score of 5 to nothing in the end of season inter league championship game on Sunday April 28, 2013. The 3-goal lead obtained by the Knights after the end of the first period did not reflect the way the period was played. The Knights scored their first goal on a solid shot but then increased their lead on a goal during a penalty shot and later on added another one on a weird play during which the ball bounced off the back wall to hit the goalie and roll across the goal line. The second period was scoreless for the greater part of it until the Knights scored two relatively quick goals towards the end of the period to seal the game. Behind by 5 goals, the Gators kept fighting, but missed scoring opportunities on a penalty shot an on a shot that hit the crossbar.
