What a spectacular season for the 06 Steamers Black!
Under the leadership of coach Robert Starr, the team went undefeated in regular season play scoring 36 goals and allowing only 4. They played the first match for the State Cup in dismal weather with constant rain and a cold wind. While dominating most of the game, Mickey Crowe and Jake Gould scored goals for a strong finish sending them on to the championship.
The championship game was an arduous back-and-forth struggle against an excellent team who tried to overpower the Steamers with physical play. Mikey Crowe and Logan Hawley scored goals, and the first half ended in a 2-2 tie. Mickey scored another goal in the second half. With less than a minute left, the score was tied 3-3. With everyone on the sidelines mentally preparing for overtime, Mercer Ellis came out of nowhere with a rocket of a shot! Mercer scored the winning goal from the 30 in the final seconds to win the championship! Congratulations to all the boys and coach Starr who worked hard all season and dug deep in their last game for a last-second win!
