Last night was Game 4 of the Eastern Hockey League Finals. The Little Flyers had a 2-1 series lead (Best of 5) over the JRFlyers. It was the last home game for the JRFlyers who were looking to force Game 5. The Little Flyers took the lead with less than five minutes left in the game making it 4-3. With 1:11 left the JRFlyers called timeout, and pulled (G) Mac Vail. The JRFlyers kept pressing and just about everyone was crashing the net. The puck landed on the stick of Barry Kneedler and he tied the game 4-4 with only :42 left forcing overtime. The Overtime was pure excitement as both teams traded opportunities but neither team could score and we remained tied after the 1st OT. Late in the 2nd overtime is was Kneedler again, this time scoring from center ice giving the JRFlyers a 5-4 victory to force Game 5 tonight.
Tonight’s game will be in Aston, PA at the Ice Works at 6pm. One more time it will be JRFlyers vs Little Flyers and the winner takes home the Championship.
