Posted in Uncategorized on October 27, 2008 by Chainsaw

In a dramatic championship game, team Republic of Doom overtook the Denver Broncos by a score of 6-5 to take the Pologeist Cup. The ROD team of Jon Bailey, Doom and Brendan Vahey took an early lead of 4-1, then the Broncos fought back to even the score at 4. The last 3 goals lasted well over 30 minutes as the teams dug deep to earn the winning goal. In dramatic fasion, the ball bounced across the line on a ricochet shot by Doom. Third place went to Team Pork Barrel of Portland who outshot team Hammer Time to take a 5-2 victory. Josh Woodard of Pork Barrel led the charge with 3 goals in the title game, his third hattrick of the tourney. The 5th place title went to the Batwinged Bastards of Durango and Flagstaff. Chuck D of Flag regrouping his team to comeback from an earlier injury on teammate Dustin, and scoring the last two goals to seal the victory.
