The defending-champions, Dan Rayment and Dr. Gulo, scored five unanswered goals in the third game last time to soundly defeat Nate and Warren in Ann Arbor, MI. Dan and Dr.G had a chance at winning back-to-back titles for the first time since 2003. However this week, they were denied by an unstoppable force.
Captain Nate, a Team USA ITSF prospect, was a one-man wrecking ball with three invisible rollers in the final game.
Defensemen Warren scored two "excessive force" bank shots that caused a delay of game as the damaged the goal was repaired. Despite the red flag, instant replay video was not available, so no penalty was charged. In addition, D-man Warren scored two deadly accurate passes and the same number of highly skilled "zig-zags" a shot style that others refer to as slop. Despite this, Warren wasted no time leaping into the crowd to demonstrate his somewhat contrived end-zone dance.
The publicist for the Dan-Gulo team commented, "They didn't finish strong, but the primary reason for the loss was that Nate and Warren scored more goals. Our guys are eager for a rematch but it was heard from a reliable unnamed spokesperson from the Nate-Warren camp, a quote from Apollo Creed after Rocky II, "Ain't gonna be no rematch... Ain't gonna be no rematch..."
