The league could not have asked for a better final. Both teams came to play and play they did. Goaltending on both teams was exceptional.
Game 1 - Blackjacks came out firing and pressured the BUZZ in their zone the entire game. Their hard work effort paid off with a 5 - 3 victory. The Blackjacks lead the Best of Three series 1 - 0.
Game 2 - The BUZZ had their backs against the wall and faced a must win situation. The BUZZ took the early lead and never looked back. A 12-4 BUZZ victory, tied the series and forced a game 3.
Game 3 - One of the best games the entire season. Both teams played with heart and left nothing in the tank. Much like the first game, the Blackjacks came out with a mission. They lead 6 -3 late in the first period. The BUZZ put together 2 late first period goals to make the score 6 - 5 Blackjacks going into the final period.
Great period of action by both teams. The BUZZ scored 4 goals in the period and held the Blackjacks to only one goal. 9 - 7 was the final score for the BUZZ in a game that could have went either way. Great game by both teams.
Congrats to the BUZZ for winning the first RHL CUP !!!
