Well, the bubble burst this weekend in Detroit...

The 2000 Mega Men headed to Detroit with an un blemished 8-0 record. After two lopsided victories, against TPH and Belle Tire at the Showdown in Motown, the boys suffered there first loss of the season, Saturday evening, to the reigning Mite 2000 Silver Sticks champions, the 2K Rebels. The Mega Men fell behind early, 3-0, but battled back to tie the score at 4 early in the second. The 2K Rebels proved to be too much for the boys as they were handed there first loss 8-5.

The next morning, the only thing standing in the way of a rematch with the Rebels was team TPH, a team the Mega Men defeated 9-2 earlier in the tournament. TPH proved to be too much to handle this time around, as the boys were unable to solve their netminder, even though they fired 38 shots. The boys were handed a disapointing 5-4 loss, leaving them in third place for the tournament.

This was truly a great time and definitely a learning experience for all involved. We look forward to building on the successes thus far and improving our games for the future.

Next up, a trip to Toronto, May 8th - 11th, for the OTTF Spring Classic. The boys will again be tested, as some top 2000 programs will be in attendance. Hopefully we can correct some of our deficiencies and continue to grow as a team.

Please wish the boys luck when you see them!
