FEDERAL HOCKEY LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP
AKWESASNE LEADS SERIES 2-0
New York Aviators: Must Win Tonight!
As Kevin Druce goes, so shall the Aviators go. In both games of this series, after establishing early leads, the third period has proven to be the team's achilles heel. Akwesasne's secret success however, has been their 4-0 record on the road through two rounds of playoffs. As a result, they are in position to win this year's FHL Title tonight. They'll have two chances to win one game on home-ice and clinch a championship. Meanwhile, the Aviators are faced with having to sweep the next three games. If they manage to win the next two games, they will come back to Hangar #5 in Brooklyn for a series finale.
After the first period, the Aviators led 3-1 in Game One. But Akwesasne came back to hand New York a 4-3 loss. In game two, Jesse Felten kept the A's ahead for the first two periods; recording a goal in each session. The Akwesasne Warriors then exploded for 6 third period goals. The Aviators managed two more goals but lost 6-4.
They now face elimination in Game Three.
Bring the series back home. Let's Go Aviators!!!
