Game SummaryThe F Patrick Healey Cup Final between Poplar Inn and Towson Ice was decided by PKs following regulation with Towson Ice gaining the advantage and taking home the Title. Both teams were able to maintain possession even though the pitch was tough to deal with. The game was 0-0 at halftime due to strong play by both keepers who had to come off their lines more than once. In the second half, Towson Ice struck first when Mike Joseph hit a perfect 30 yard shot that caught Poplar keeper Lloyd Collier off his line. Some time later, after an altercation in the Towson Ice penalty box, Poplar was awarded a penalty. Mike Pennachia successfully converted for Poplar and the game was tied @ 1-1. With about 5 minutes left in the match, Mike Pennachia found Sebastian Haensel on the run with a 40 yard pass placed perfectly behind Towson Ice's last line of defense. Haensel converted to give Poplar a 2-1 advantage with minutes remaining. A couple minutes later, a through ball was played from about 25 yds out by Towson Ice that made it's way to Poplar Inn keeper, Collier. Again, an altercation in the box, but this time it was off the ball. The result was a PK awarded to Towson Ice. Jimmy DiPino deadlocked the match at 2-2 after he found the back of the net with his try. PKs looked inevitable, but Towson Ice had one more opportunity that hit the post and went out of bounds for a goal kick. In the shootout following regulation, all kicks were converted except for one that was saved by Towson Ice keeper and match MVP Nick Warner. The save was the difference in Towson Ice lifting the F Patrick Healey Cup for the first time.
