Those Mean Old Teachers 2 Riemann Sums 1

Peter Hammond was the only scorer for Those Mean Old Teachers, but his two goals were enough to get them past the Riemann Sums. Hammond's first goal came after he was left wide open in front of the net by the Sums defense. Hammond scored his second goal from the top of the crease with a hard slapshot that got by Sums goalie, David Ufford.

Towards the end of the game, Victor Roy scored for the Riemann Sums after he intercepted Teachers goalie Mark Curran on a goalie throw. Roy was wide open and he put it in the lower left corner of the goal immediately.

Raging Gametes 3 Nachitos 2

After a back and forth battle, the game was 2-1 Nachitos, with Julian Shapiro providing both of their scores. One of Shapiro's scores was a shot that went through a screen and just past Raging Gametes goalie Adam Schuyler and his outstretched arms. The second goal was a nifty wrist flick that was shot from just outside the crease into the top of the net.

As the Nachitos hunkered down on defense, it seemed that it was all over for the Gametes as neither team could keep the ball in the opponent's territory for long.

With eight seconds left, however, the Gametes mounted a desperate last stand and Peter Bullen managed to get open and slap the ball into the Nachitos goal and the game was tied after regulation.

The overtime period was short, though, barely a minute long as the Gametes controlled the opening faceoff and immediately went on the offensive. After some crisp passing that countered the Nachitos zone defense, Greg Jukes ended up with the ball on his stick and a whole lot of wide-open space. Jukes shot an awkward, bouncing and spinning ball that snuck past a screen and into the back of the net, and the Gametes went wild.

Justice League 6 Born To Command 1

Born To Command was forced to play two men down as they didn't have any of their girls show up and it made a difference against a well-prepared Justice League team that was not going to be denied a spot in the playoffs.

Lucas Henry was especially terrifying for Born To Command goalie Mike Bushnell as he often got one or two uncontested shots, as the shorthanded defense was slow to rotate to pick him up and he ended up getting two goals. Also, two of Mikey Tsai's hard slapshots found their way past the beleaguered goalie for a pair of scores.

In a losing effort, Born To Command's Ryan Ly scored off of a nice pass from fellow wingman, Albert Nguyen.

    Henry's amazing; he was much better than Mr. Gibb. Henry moves around the key to shoot and their passing attack really blew the doors off us. It's not easy to win playing with 3 guys to 5, but 6 goals? Not a good game in the slightest.

    but gibb is good enough, we're still undefeated!

    RAGING GAMETES ALL THE WAY!

    I'm just sad that the teachers broke up their championship-calibur team. When Gibb left (unquestionably one of the best players in the league) our team felt cheated that we wouldn't get to face the full force of the Arthritics (the 02-03 teacher team). Now with Mr. Grossman and Mr. Henry (both excellent) gone as well, there's no standard to measure up to. So seniors: enjoy victory, but know that you're not necessarily the best. The teachers in their glory days could beat any current team.

    i am sorry funkmaster but our team and ur team should be tied because one of our players scored from the other side of the court and nathan didn't see it and ur goalie even said it went in

    It's great to see floor hockey is alive and well, and even better to see that this article is being used as a forum for trash talk. Good luck...someone please beat the teachers for me.
