Super Master's Division (40+)

Championship: Elder Statesmen 16, C2C Magic Wands 4
On a glorious early July afternoon at 8000', the mostly-somewhat Hobart group of Elder Statesmen easily won their second consecutive Supermasters title at the 41st Vail Shootout. It was a very convincing 16-4 victory over the Magic Wands out of Texas. Dan Pratt (Syracuse '87) opened the scoring for the Elder Statesmen. Pratt methodically made the trip from one end of the field to the other where upon arriving he simply deposited the ball into the Magic Wand net. Goals were spaced evenly in time and amongst many names Lance Savage (Hobart '90) had 2 goals and 2 assists, Sam Hovey (St. Lawrence '87) also had 2 goals and 2 assists, and Cort Kim (Albany '92) had 3 goals and one assist. Dan Cisneros (Bowdoin '84) had 11 save in yet another stellar goal tending performance.

The dominance got to a barrage state as the Statesmen reeled off 6 goals in the third quarter and zapped any magic that might have been left in the Wands and it was 12-3 after three quarters. The Elder Statesmen are a very colorful group. The roster is a who's who of yesteryear and still a most fun team to watch.

Dr. Tom Watts Memorial U-19 High School Boys' Showcase

Division 1 Semifinal: Laxachusetts 8, Adrenaline Jr. Tropics 4
Adrenaline showed a lot of heart, but just could not match the speed and ball handling of the Green-clad Boston boys. Laxa's ball hawking on ground balls gave them numerous possessions and they cashed in several. In addition, their #15, Mike Oregice dominated the faceoff circle.

Division 1 Semifinal: Baltimore Crabs 17, FCA 8
It appeared that the Crabs could score at will and they did so in clusters. Tied at 2 at 5:04 of the first, the Crabs ran off 4 goals in less than a minute to determine the outcome. The Crabs were never again threatened. Bright spot for FCA was F/O specialist S. Kelly with 7 wax jobs, Greene with four goals, and Guterding with two goals and five total points led the Crabs.
