Suffolk Sting - The Professional Inline Hockey Association Champions - 2012


 

 
Harrisburg, PA - The Suffolk Sting came into the PIHA Finals this past weekend determined to make up for last season's Finals loss and they did just that with a 4 games to 1 series win. The league believed this series was going to be a tight one and the teams and players did not disappoint. Back and forth games, two overtimes, and three days of action proved to be one of the best Finals' series in the league's 11 years of existence. "It became the series the league hoped for. Both teams played hard, physical hockey and were very well matched. Two overtimes and some of the best players in the country coming together to show off our sport was exactly what the league was looking for," said PIHA Co-founder, Charley Yoder.
 
Friday night games 1 and 2 could not have gone any better if you were a fan of the game and the Sting. Both games ended in a 3-2 score going to the Eastern Conference Champions and both games were right down to the wire. Game 1 saw the Prowlers come out strong and take a 2-0 lead into period two only to see the star studded Sting team come back and go ahead on a Jon Mosenson goal with less than a minute to play. Game two ended in similar fashion but took some extra time after a see-saw battle found the teams tied at 2 after 2. A penalty call in overtime put roller hockey stars Thompson, McGuinness, Healy, and Mosenson on the floor together and finished off the Prowler hopes at a split as Greg Thompson scored the game winner just before the penalty ended.
 
Saturday's games proved to be more great matchups and the Prowlers showed they didn't make the trip to Harrisburg to watch, as they spread the wealth in Game 3 taking it 5-2 and seeing a number of guys get into the scoring action. Pivitol game 4 was one the Parker team needed to have but after all was said and done the Finals MVP and Sting captain, Greg Thompson, came thru again in overtime to push the Sting into a commanding 3 games to 1 lead heading into Sunday. 
 
The Suffolk Sting eventually took it to the Prowlers in Game 5 as they rolled on to win the deciding game 5-2 and hoisted the Founders Cup for the first time in franchise history. "It was a great series, Parker is a tremendous team and still very young with a lot of good years ahead of them. We will enjoy these wins," said playoff MVP Greg Thompson. The Sting organization had a great weekend as the Minor Division was also taken by the Suffolk Sting as they swept the Parker Prowlers in two games during Sunday's Final 3 game series. The teams split during round robin play but the entire Sting organization was on a roll this past Sunday and couldn't be stopped. "It was not a bad weekend for our guys, they all played very well and have worked hard to get these championships. We are looking forward to next year and hope we can keep getting better as the talent in PIHA picks up," commented the organization's owner, Jason Muro.
 
"The weekend was an unbelievable success and we are excited for the years to come. The league would like to thank all the players, coaches, fans and supporters of this weekends events. The Susquehanna Sports Center and its staff did a tremendous job; we look forward to hosting even more right here in Central Pennsylvania," says league Commissioner, Denis Jelcic.
