So Serious

Crimson has fallen, and the Dark Knights have risen up to face that final, fearsome foe. The (appropriately, and convenient-for-my-theming-purposes) purple-clad 'Perps' will face off against the last remaining hero in the final scenes of a movie three and a half months in the making. The Summer League champions may be unmasked tonight, unless the box office does well enough to make it a trilogy...

The Dark Knights choked out Copptain America in the final battle on the hero side, as Frédéric Fournier continued his super play in the 2-0 shutout win for Black. Fournier (16/16 in this match) has been the backbone for Black, allowing just one goal in the last three games. Alyce Perry provided the game-winner early in the first period, and assisted on Captain Mark Ennsmann's insurance marker midway through the second. Black now look to avenge their own 2-0 loss, the result of their regular season metting with Purple, as the last standing hero looks to make their last stand.

'The Perps' did the undoable, and undid everything Crimson had ever done in doing so. They say timing is everything, and losing your first game in fifteen outings in the knockout phase of the playoffs would be a prime example of poor timing. Dan Jurgens struck first for Purple late in the second, but Justin Hepler evened the score just six seconds later. Bob Jones put 'The Perps' back on top with 3:16 to play, but it was Hepler to the rescue again with just 1:40 to play. A scoreless OT brought on the shootout, and Hepler once again proved his mettle on the first attempt of the showdown. Captain Jon Salt matched Hepler, Josh Wirt failed to convert, and Dan Jurgens netted the only other ball to give Purple a thrilling 3-2 shootout win over previously unbeaten Crimson. Shockwaves rippled through social media, as the news of the fallen giants spread. Purple hopes to ride those waves, and leverage their swelling confidence in the final showdown with the Dark Knights for all the super spoils.




Q: Why couldn't Batman go fishing?

A: Robin ate all the wroms.

OK, I just can't, anymore. They are all AWFUL.
