In the Championship game Mesa met LB3 Atlanta and quickly fell behind 2-0, but rallied behind spectacular goaltending by Parker Henderer and James Spence along with great defense from the long poles.

The balanced midfield was strong all day dominating ground balls and face-offs, while the attack controlled the pace of the offense.

Mesa delivered a strong second half finishing with the 8-5 win. Mesa was led in scoring by Ryan Brown and Denny Nealon, who each had eight goals while Matty Boles added five. Four others, Joel Trucksess, John Nostrant, Jacob Buttermore, and Henry Berg, each had three. Assist Leaders were Connor Mosebrook (seven), Billy Coyle and Ryan Jacob (four), and Doug Jones (three).

Chris Morrison said, “We are a new team so everyone is getting used to playing together but I think we are going to be pretty solid/” Henry Berg added, “We just try to play a team game where everyone knows their role, and when we do it right we like the results.”

On November 24 Mesa travels to Baltimore to play in the Crabfest.
