Lockout All-Stars win floor hockey championship

Defeat EDS Trashers in final of Comox Valley Sports & Social Club playoffs

Defence wins championships, and for the Lockout All-Stars, that championship-winning defence begins with having the biggest and best goaltender in the league.

The All-Stars have captured their second championship in the Comox Valley Sports & Social Club’s floor hockey league, riding the broad shoulders of goalie David Adama to an 8-4 win over the rival EDS Trashers in the final. Adama pitched the first full-game shutout in 11 seasons of the generally high-scoring league during an 8-0 semifinal victory over Shut Your 5-Hole, then followed up with another stellar performance when it mattered most.

The Trashers posted a great run of chances early only to get stuffed at the goalmouth, allowing the All-Stars’ opportunistic offence to build a lead the team wouldn’t relinquish. When the Trashers started to show signs of tiring, speedsters like Braedon Martin, Adrian Niederberger and Jack Surgenor pushed the pace and built a sizeable lead.

The two teams, both 7-0-1 heading into the final, tied 5-5 in their regular season meeting.

The Dekes of Hazzard took third place with a 12-10 win over Shut Your 5-Hole in a back-and-forth affair, while the Flying Squirrels won 15-14 over the Jets to take fifth place in their first season in the league. No Regretzkies finished in seventh with a 14-8 win over Puck Hunt, and the Puck Offs notched a 16-6 victory over U Puck on Me? to finish ninth overall.

Registration is now open for the CVSSC’s spring sports leagues, including flag football, slo-pitch, ultimate Frisbee, soccer, beach volleyball, indoor volleyball and kickball.
