The end of another season for our Prem A side
19/09/16

Well, as the title says, tonight's second Grand Final match marked the end of the season for our Prem A team as the boys went down 3-0 to the Jets. The boys played well, though not quite as well as last Friday, but in the end they simply could not put the puck past the Jets' goalie, Mikey James. And you cannot win if you do not score. Mikey had a fabulous series and was clearly the MVP of the playoffs.

On the positive side, the shot count was once again quite even at 21-19 (slightly in favour of the Jets) with plenty of our shots being quite threatening. And then of course there was Tom Voller's ringing shot off the post, but we will not mention that one.

Never mind boys there is always next year.

Michael David`s goal at 17 second into the first period of the Premier-A game against the Sharks on Friday the 19th of August appears to be the second fastest goal in Demons history that I am aware of? The fastest ever recorded was by Joseph Nyamuka at 10 seconds in the first period of the Senior-A game against the Jets at Oakleigh on 14th May 2005, the pass coming from Daniel Gunn!!

Byron Tschuma in Premier-A, scored his second Career Hat-Trick, this time a 4 Goal hat-trick on 19/8/20.
