The Over 50 Kings prevailed in the Senior C championship game with a 2-1 victory over the Gas Gods. Hank Gagnon and Ronnie Roy each tallied goals for the victors, while John Savard scored for the Gas Gods. The Kings controlled the pace of the game but were stymied by the acrobatic goal tending of Matt Gallagher in the Gas Gods net. Although the Kings took the title home the real star of the series was 15 year old Gas Gods Goalie Matt Gallagher. In the Final game Gallagher withstood an onslaught of over 65 shots turning all but two away. The Kings did not score the game winner until Roy's slap shot from the point rocketed into the top corner with less than four minutes left in the game. The undermanned Gas Gods were resilient and proved to be a competitive opponent for the veteran Kings Team where every player on the team is over 50 years old. Dana Robinson got the lone assist on the game winner for the Kings.
