SS Floor Hockey News: Habs and Stars Duel in SSFHL Semi-final
The Habs were the favourites coming into this match, having only lost one game the regular season, but as we all know anything can happen in the playoffs. The game started status quo as Lawson opened the scoring to put the Habs in front 1-0. On the next shift, Adam converted on Jakes cross-crease feed to put the Red, Blue, and White up 2-0. Lawson scored his second for a 3-0 lead before a most interesting turn of events occurred. A Habs clear out pass bounded off Hugo and landed in front of a surprised Habs goalkeeper and on the stick of Aariz, who quickly shuffled the puck into the net. A moment later, Hugo and Aariz combined again for Aariz's and the Stars second goal of the match. The game developed a greater interest as a possible upset was in the making.
Alas, Max responded for the Habs, and Adam managed a second goal, and then Lawson scored his third of the game putting the Habs up 6-2, and it appeared the script was already written. But the drama began to unfold as Mohammed scored off a feed from Aariz, and then he tickled the twine for a second time on a solo effort, and Alina found nylon to close the gap to a lone goal. With their hopes elevated, Lawson took some of the air out of their sails with his fourth goal of the contest, creating a Leafs/Habs final.
