Congratulations to the 2000 Pittsburgh Mega Men for taking home the championship in the Rock 'N Roll Cup in Cleveland.

The boys were untested in the first 2 games of the tournament, winning by a combined score of 26-0, playing against two house teams from Ontario and New York.

In the third game, the competition and the intensity picked up. Battling the top 2000's from Cleveland, the boys earned a hard fought 8-3 victory to head into the championship undefeated. Heading into the third period, the score was 4-3, the Mega Men turned it up a notch and were able to put the game away in the third.

That set the stage for a rematch with the 2000 Cleveland team in the championship. Clinging to a 2-1 lead entering the third period, the boys again were able to pick up the intensity to add 2 third period goals to seal the victory. Both games were extremely hard fought battles, that brought out the best in both teams. Thanks to a total team effort on both offense and defense, the Mega Men were able to capture the hardware.

Next up, a trip to New York for a rematch with the Western NY Selects on April 13th. Wish the boys luck!
