Round Two of the Empire Playoffs is set

The final match up for next weekend's second round was settled Monday night when the Bay State Breakers came back from a first game loss to take 2 from their divisional rival, the Foxboro Stars. The Breakers join the Boston Junior Bruins, the Fitchburg Huskies and the New Hampshire Monarchs as first round victors in the National Conference. Meanwhile, the American Conference was settled on Sunday. Rounding out the Empire's Elite Eight are the Brewster Bulldogs, New York Applecore, Piitsburgh Jr Penguins and the Syracuse Stars. The Syracuse/ Maksymum series had to be the most dramatic, edge of your seat trysts of the first round. Tied at one all heading into the mini-game on Sunday, Syracuse broke a scoreless tie with 3:32 on the clock in the 2nd Overtime. Based on seedings, the Syracuse win was the only upset in the first round. However, seedings don't tell the whole story. All the teams in the playoffs deserved to be there. The parity in this league is tremendous and the real story is that many teams are just a player or two away from the penthouse view.
