This semifinal matchup features the Injured list who have won eight straight games and are on a mission to win it all. Captain Andrew Cvitanov put the team together for just that reason a championship banner. Lead by Mike Zhadkevich the teams leading scorer and playmaker they are at their best when they can dictate the pace of the game. Big man Chris Shelton plays his role hitting the glass and the open shot, while Eric Straub slashes and spaces the floor.
Team Sunline on the other side the fresh fish has been on an amazing run making their first semifinal playoff appearance captain Mark Lepine has his boys primed and ready to swim.
