Barre-Montpelier Coed Floor Hockey Winter 2012 Champs

The Night Hawks became, on Sunday April 15, 2012, the very first Barre-Montpelier League Champions as they convincingly defeated in back-to-back games, the Cardinals (16 to 3, SEMI-FINAL) and the Jets (15 to 7, final).


The Night Hawks and the Jets finished 1st and 2nd respectively during the regular season with only two points separating the two rivals. However, the Night Hawks posted two wins out of three regular match ups between the two teams this season.


In Sunday’s final, the Night Hawks surprised the Jets by unleashing a ferocious offence as indicated by the 8 to 2 score after the first period. The Jets rallied offensively in the second period but the Night Hawks kept their scoring pace of the first period to double up the Jets by the final buzzer.


The Night Hawks are now awaiting the Champions of the Greater Burlington League. The two teams will face off for the grand Club final leading to the Vermont Floor Hockey Cup Title. The game will be held at 6:00 pm on April 29 at The Edge, in Essex Junction.
The Winter 2012 Night Hawks include C. Amell, T. Cole, L. DePaul, G. Dukette, A. Fifield, S. Hurley, R. Knapp, D. MacDougall and H. Russo.
