In a season that started with crazy amounts of snow and bitter cold and had a dangerous late season meltdown, Broomball managed to survive like always. The regular season went well, with the new additions of Monday Night Broomball and the Non-Compete league showing a lot of promise. We saw tons of fans out throughout the year at the rinks and many of us witnessed some great upsets that led to define the middle rounds of the playoffs this year. In the end the two teams in the championship were both highly favored picks and they did there best to live up to expectations.
The long awaited end of the Broomball season finally came to an end Tuesday night with our championship game. Troy Hard came out strong and kept up the pressure and scoring to take a 4-1 lead going into the half. Old Time Hockey wasn't going to lay down and take it though, and employed a impressive 5 man fore check to keep the ball well trapped in the Troy zone. This earned Old Time Hockey some good shots and bounces into the back of the net. Troy Hard eventually was able to start breaking the press and was able to capitalize on a breakaway and some odd man rushes, backing the fore check up a little and bringing the game to a competitive 6-4 ending. The game had lots of drama, multiple penalties, but in the end proved to be all of what was expected out of the best two teams in Broomball. Troy Hard brought the championship trophy back to the On Campus leagues with a great outing from their 6 graduating players. Congratulations to all our other League Champions and to all players who joined us for a great season!
