12:20 - Great Wall of Portelance 1 Goalden Knights 0

View Boxscore

When he joined our league last season, everyone who knew Stephane Portelance said he was maybe the best goalie they've ever seen....and while that's of course up for debate, he's been about as good as any goalie can possibly be in his first 2 OFBHL seasons.

In his rookie season this past Fall, Portelance was dominant during the regular season as he sported a 7W-2L record and was 2nd overall with a 2.17 GAA and 94.0 save %....and he followed that up in the playoffs going 3W-0L with 2.00 GAA and 95.0 sv% en route to backstopping his team to the Bubba Cup Championship.

Well in his sophomore season, he stepped up his game even more going 8-2 in the regular season with a 2.42 GAA and a sparkling 94.2 sv%...then culminating his brilliant season in today's semi-final and Final, as Portelance again went 3-0 in the playoffs and fittingly his #2 seeded team called Great Wall of Portelance won the Bubba Cup Championship thanks in large part to their masked man's sterling 47-save 1-0 shut-out victory over the #4 seed Goalden Knights.

Ironically, the only goal in this game was scored off the opening face-off when underrated Jason Muscant won the draw back to his BFF rearguard Mark Nash who fired a seeing-eye shot through traffic that mashed the mesh behind star goalie Russell Latham.

The remaining 39 minutes and 58 seconds of the game saw no goals, which was especially impressive in the 2nd half as the Knights peppered Portelance with 28 shots, but the Wall could not be penetrated as Portelance won his 2nd straight Bubba Cup Championship.

Congrats to captain Ashley Clow, Stephane Portelance, Steve Andrews, Kelly Cameron, Lorraine MacIntosh, Spencer McDonald, Jason Muscant, Mark Nash, and Missy Newhook....along with today's spares Adam Barrett, Melissa Blondeau, Mona Le Blanc, and Tanya Di Virgilio.
