The Texas Stampede 40 & Over team made it to the finals after coming through the preliminary round undefeated.
They found themselves behind 4-2 going into the 3rd period to a very motivated team from the New England area. They were able to get within striking distance with a third goal with 6:30 left in the game.
They pulled the goalie with just over one minute left and tied the game with 20 seconds left on a deflection of a shot from the point. Approximately 5 minutes into the overtime period the Texas Stampede scored their 5th goal and finished off the 5-4 championship win!
This is the third National Championship in seven years for the Texas Stampede 40 & Over team who plan to defend their title next year.
