Trashers take floor hockey title in a shootout

A MEMBER OF the Grinders sees daylight and tries to make a break for it against the EDS Trashers in the final of the Comox Valley Sports & Social Club’s floor hockey league Tuesday night. The Trashers eventually won 6-5 in a shootout to take first place.










With just a minute remaining in the tightly contested final of the Comox Valley Sports & Social Club’s floor hockey league, Dan McMahon found the ball on his stick at the point and a clear shooting lane towards the net.

He buried his head and then buried the ball past Grinders’ goaltender Liam Higgins, lifting the EDS Trashers to a 5-5 tie and forcing a shootout to decide the champion. Both Higgins and Trashers’ goalie Cedric Robert continued their stellar play in nets by stymieing the bulk of the oncoming shooters. Only the Trashers’ Cory Jackson managed to find the back of the net with a shot low and to the blocker side on his attempt, and that marker stood as the winner in a 6-5 final.

The Trashers upset the previously undefeated Grinders with the win in what has become a solid rivalry. Meanwhile, the Puck Offs took third place with a 6-4 victory over Shut Your 5-Hole as both teams showed leaps and bounds of improvement during the season to become contenders.

The Grave Diggers nabbed fifth place in their first season in the league after knocking off the fourth-place Liners by a 9-6 count. And the Triple Dekes finished off their season on a high note with a 4-3 victory over Here for Beer for seventh overall. The Battle for the Basement was also a tight match, with the Jets eking out a 5-4 win over Fat Kids Win at Seesaw to secure ninth place in the 10-team league.

A new floor hockey season begins in January and new teams, groups and individual players are all welcome to register and play by going to the website Registration is open now until Jan. 9, with spots on a first come, first served basis.
