Testing Results

Caden Ulmer ran the fastest time in the 40 yard dash.  He ran it in 5.27 seconds. Sammy Grimaldi came in second with a time of 5.28.  Dan Costabile ran a 5.34, Chris Cerven ran a 5.41 and Alec Pape ran a 5.45. 

Team Building Results

Once again there was controversy as the players are becoming too smart for their own good in the scavenger hunt today. In an effort to finish first, teams tried to cut corners and must not have listened carefully to the directions. White appeared to finish first but found the extra keys for locks instead of the one key that was hidden in the room that had their color tag on it. Black then finished but hadn’t fully completed unlocking everything. Red was still behind in the race. After deliberation and astrological consultation, it was decided to split points, giving 1 to White and 1 to Black.

Game Reviews

Game #1 Red vs White 1:3

Sammy Grimaldi opened the scoring for red after nine minutes of scoreless play by weaving through the defense and dekeing the goaltender. White then scored three straight goals to win the game 3-1.  Mike Verni tied it up 1-1 with his second goal of the tournament. Oliver Nalepa scored with an assist by Pawinski. Finally, Henry Keich scored on a pass from Nalepa.

Game #2 Black vs Red 2:3

Red came out on top of this very hard fought game.  Black seemed to control the game, but Red controlled the scoreboard.  Nick Tinerella opened the scoring with an assist from Grimaldi. The next red goal was a highlight reel by Grimaldi.  He split the Defense, and then deked the goalie to put the puck into a wide open net. Moments later, Jacob Kneiling scored on a pass from Tinerella to make it 3-0.  Black was held scoreless until Chris Cerven scored with just over 4 minutes left. Vincenzo Fiore and Arthur Hans picked up assists on that goal. From this point on Black was on a mission and David Parker made it a one goal game with an assist from Chris Cerven.  Red held on to win the game by a goal.

Game #3 White vs Black 5:2

White took an early two goal lead.  Henry Keich scored one minute into the game with assist credited to Pawinski and Nate Zimmerman.  Pawinski scored the second goal with the pass coming from Keich. One minute later Sean Pondelicek scored on a blast from the point to make it a 2-1 game.  Keich continued his hot streak by scoring his second of the game on a great pass from Nalepa. Nate Zimmerman then scored the final two white goals to make it 5-1, before Arthur Hans finished the scoring to make it a 5-2 final.

Vegas Odds

Black moved right back to 4-1 long shots.  White has a virtual lock on the automatic bye to the championship.  There is now very little payout on a bet for White.  

White 1.25 – 1

Red  3.5 -1

Black 4-1
