Office Interiors Jr. Caps vs. Moncton Jr. Vitos… a David vs. Goliath Story
The Jr Caps found a chink in the armour and chipped away until the giant fell. The Office Interiors Jr Caps and Sr Vice President of Sales for NB Shawn Lean as the associate coach, lead an inspired surge from the start of the game 3 to win their fourth provincial title in five years, and never looked back.
The Jr Caps were down 2 games to none in the best of 7 provincial final against a Moncton Jr Vitos team that went undefeated in the regular season, undefeated in the semi final, and won the first 2 games of the final before falling 4 straight to the second place Jr Caps.
The Vitos won games 1 and 2 both by a 5-1 score and looked to be cruising to another sweep when the Jr Caps rallied for a 6-5 overtime win in game three. Game 4 was another tight one in a goaltenders dual and the Caps squeeking out a 1-0 shutout win.
Game five ended 4-2 with an empty net to seal the deal, as did game 6 with the outcome being 6-4. The Office Interiors Jr Caps enter the Eastern Canadian Junior B Championship as the NB representative at this years Don Johnson Cup that takes place April 22nd to April 25th.
The Office Interiors motto is “Love the way you work” and the motto of the Jr Caps…..”Love the way you play!”
