The Flames Claim Gold in Battle of Bothell 5/6 Championship Match

IYL's Silver 5/6 team - The Flames - torched the competition in Bothell this weekend winning 5 games to get into the Championship final and then took a 7-3 victory over a tough Beaverton Select team to claim the gold.

The Flame scored 58 goals while only allowing 15 against over the 6 Battle of Bothell games. The path to gold included three pool wins: Flames 15, Northshore 3; Flames 13, Puyallup 1; Flames 8, Lincoln (OR) 3. Their playoff record: Quarter-final - Flames 7, Maple Valley 2; Semi-final - Flames 8, Sherwood (OR) 3; and the championship match - Flames 7, Beaverton (OR) 3.

The championship game scoring leader was Tyler Johnston with 3 goals, 2 assists and 2 ground balls. Standout attackman Jordan Greenhall had 1 goal, 2 assists and 4 ground balls. Other key match players - McKay Berndt with 2 goals, 2 ground balls and Charlie Kurtenbach with 1 goal. Stats aside this was a team win with great contributions across the roster but come the games final whistle it was goalie Sam Britt who was hoisted into the air by his teammates - Sam and his defense throttled some of the top scoring 5/6 teams at the Battle.

Congratulations to our Battle of Bothell champions...and The Flames organization....
