The second period there were no goals scored. The third period the Vipers had three goals, from Nick Duerrich unassisted, next from Robby Santa with an assist from Connor McHugh and the final goal came from Ty Eckenroad with an assist from Nolan Musti. With this win we were heading into the Championship game in 1st place.
Monday, the Vipers faced Camilus in the Championship game. The boys fought hard but came up short with a 2-1 loss giving them a 2nd place finish in the overall Tournament. Michael Castle scored and was assisted by Robby Santa in the 3rd period.
The Steel City Shootout was a great event for this Bantam B Vipers. The team played outstanding defense and saw the best goaltending of the year. Only giving up three goals in 4 games! The team had a great time hanging out together all weekend. The team played x-box, shopped, watched movies, had a pizza party and help to celebrate Coach Campisi's birthday with a Birthday Cake - Coach Campi was able to blow out ALL the candles in one blow!
Thanks to all the coaches, and manager of the team for all that you do!
