Two More Wins for the 2000 Pittsburgh Mega Men!


Day trip to Amherst is a huge success!

After an uncharacteristic sluggish start in the first game against the Western NY Selects, where the boys found themselves down 3-0, they got a late second period goal, which energized the team and opened the flood gates. Trailing 3-1 heading into the third period, the boys reeled off 6 unanswered goals to pull away and win the first game 7-3.

In the second game, the two teams battled pretty evenly until the third period, where the Mega Men's relentless pressure wore down the Western NY team, as the boys outscored the Selects 6-2 and went on to win 9-4.

This was the final game action before the boys head to Detroit for some serious competition. All four Pittsburgh Mega Men teams ('97, '98, '99 & '00) will be in action, in the Showdown in Motown (Belle Tire) Tournament. Please wish all the teams good luck as they head off to Detroit April 24th - April 27th.

Go Mega Men!
