Guttman 8, Rock-it Pocket 7 (5th place game)
The game between Guttman and RIP was very close. Guttman was slow and steady, clearing the ball well and scoring an even two goals per quarter. Unfortunately for RIP, they fell just short of Guttman's pace and with ten seconds left, their attempt to tie did not materialize.
Warrior 9, Dulles 7 (7th place game)
Warrior took an early 3-1 lead, but Dulles' Rob Scherr held the team in the game until the very end. The penalty filled game ended 9-7 in favor of Warrior as a late extra man goal sealed the game.

MCLC 13, Orvis 8
The early morning brought out two rather sad looking teams today. Orvis and MCLC, handicapped by their 9:30 am start time came out and fought like champs.
