Hamilton Public Enemies clinch Falls Classic

Saturday, September 17, 2011 - Submitted by Juha Mikkola,

 Don't let the Toronto jerseys fool you, it was the Hamilton Public Enemies who defeated the Ottawa Blizzard 3-2 in a thrilling final to clinch the first-ever Falls Floorball Classic. The Public Enemies finished the day with a convincing 6 wins and no losses to continue the domination they started at the 2011 Canada Cup. In the final, the Enemies' lethal offense struck first, staking the squad to a 2-0 lead on goals by Daniel Hewko and Andrew Radjenovic. The Ottawa Blizzard kept it close, determined to repeat the success they found during an exciting 4-3 shootout win over the Vikings in the semi-final. The Blizzard's Matthew Hubmann got on the board from a set-up by Dave Toupin to end the first period 2-1. In the second, the Enemies' manager and top defenseman Dan McKeen put away a back-hander that would be the eventual game winner, despite a goal by Miah Gaudet of the Blizzard to bring the game to 3-2. A frantic finish for the Blizzard, including pulling star goalie JR Goulet for the extra attacher, yielded no more offense and the Enemies were victorious. At the end of the tournament defenseman Dan McKeen was picked as the Most Valuable Player after scoring 3 goals and 3 assists while playing strong defense throughout the tournament. Congratulations to the Public Enemies and thank you to all five teams, the fans, volunteers and referees who made this tournament possible.

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.
