SHARKS    4    WINGS   3

This Sam Cup Championship game was a barnburner, as the capacity filled Arena Three crowd definitely got their money’s worth!  Ben Haynes scores the game winning goal – his second goal of the game with exactly two minutes remaining in the contest to snap the 3-3 tie!  Pat “Crazy Legs” Berry and General Robert E. Lee with singles.  Game MVP goalie Brian Miller was simply outstanding in nets!  Grand Rapids call up Robert Stempian goes twine twice for the Wings.  Speedy Jimmy George with a power play marker.  Jimmy George(High Sticking) and Mark Munsterman(Roughing) hit the box in tandem in period one.  Is a Sharks dynasty forming, as they win their second consecutive Championship game?  A good time was had by all postgame at Joe Kools!
