Blue win sets up final clash with Lightning


The finals are set for Men’s Roller Hockey Thursday, following last week’s action.

The championship will be decided between New Blue and White Lightning.

White had a bye into the championship game on the merit of their quarterfinal win, but last week Blue had to win their way to the championship game, and had to go through the Morewood Monkeys to do it.

They did so handily, posting a 10-7 win.

Blue was first on the board and held the lead throughout the entire game.

The combined efforts of Justin Elliott and Connor Hodgson accounted for every one of Blue’s goals of their four-goal first period. 

Elliott went on to record a six point night with three goals and three assists. Hodgson had a four-point night with two goals and two assists. 

Chris Embry had a three goal night for the Monkeys, in their losing effort.

In other action, a last minute goal gave the Red Rockets a 9-8 win over White Lightning. The game winning goal was scored by Chad McMillan. It was his second of the night. Darrel Moore posted a team-leading seven point night with four goals and three assists.

Thursday night the consolation game will pit the Monkeys against the Rockets.
