Final Score: Puckin’ Monkeys 8 Blazing Nuggets 7
First Star – Matthew M., Puckin’ Monkeys
If scoring the game-winning goal in overtime of the championship isn’t worthy of a first star nod, I don’t know what is.
Second Star – Adam O. & Shawn A., Puckin’ Monkeys
They both tallied two goals and an assist each to help win the Tuesday Roller Hockey championship.
Third Star – James K., Blazing Nuggets
He tallied three goals and an assist. He also finished the session as the top point-getter in all of Tuesday Roller Hockey notching 22 goals and 12 assists.
