40W, no. 11; newsletter b.n.)
Coastal Pirates were up against the former Chiefs for the Sunday Night B-Division Championship. The Chiefs now wanting to be known as the Lunch Ladies were able to jump out to a 2-0 lead. The Pirates were able to score one to get the deficit back to one, only for the Lunch Ladies to score again. That pattern would repeat itself for the rest of the night ... for the Pirates could not climb back into a tie.
Late in the final period the score was 4-3 but the Lunch Ladies scored again. Harris who made some spectacular saves all night, was pulled for the extra skater, and the Pirates were able to bring the score back within one with :20 seconds left. So close, yet so far ...
