June 13th was a long awaited and much anticipated game day for those on the rivaling Connor’s and Brockway Public House teams. After a heated match in the teams’ first competition, Connor’s planned to reestablish their place as victors. Knowing that it would take more than just pure skill and heart to win this match, Connor’s tried to outwit Brockway by spreading rumors of absent key players and floating team emails to the Brockway players by “accident.” It would take more than that to beat the Brockway team and Saturday’s game proved that Brockway has the heart and the talent to beat Connor's in any game they want to play.
Connor’s confidence was evident in the first half. Starting the game, Connor’s scored 2 goals and 5 points while holding Brockway to just 1 goal and 1 point in the first half. At the end of the first it appeared as if Connor's would once again defeat Brockway, but as the teams switched sides for the second half it was evident that the tides had turned as well. Brockway’s Ian Heraty came out blazing points one after another while Mike Monaghan and Richard Conolly controlled the middle. At this point it seemed as if Connor’s couldn’t get the sliothar out of their own backfield and that Brockway would prove to be eminent champions of the two.
After Brockway gained the lead it appeared as if they were getting stronger with every possession. At this point Connor’s, in a panic, began reforming their team which allowed them to gain enough composure to knock in a couple points, but it would be too late and not enough. Brockway regained possession at the end of the game with a lead of four and kept the ball in their offense’s possession to ensure the win with minutes to go. Everyone for Brockway did their part to help with the win.
