Division 2 - Semi-Finals Game Results

May 30th, 2022

Three's A Crowd

They say things happens in 3's. Well, it certainly did wonders for Sapporo, who defeated AsiaXpat easily, 8-1 in the Division 2 semi-final. It took them 3 games by taking the series 2-1. In game 3, there were 3 players with 3 points to lead the way. Scott Strickland, Terence Chim and John Ng led the way with a pair of goals and an assist.

Sapporo wasted no time early on and took an early 2-0 lead just 3:27 into the game on goals from Ng and Justin Kuok. Ng then scored his second before the period ended for a 3-0 lead. AsiaXpat could not get anything going in this game as they were forced to take long shots which Sapporo goaltender Loron Orris had little trouble with.

In the second period, Sapporo took a 5-1 lead. Sandwiched in between Chim's goals was Michael Wong's goal which gave AsiaXpat some faint hope. Wong has been a bright spot for AsiaXpat and great to see his game evolve.

In the third period, the game it was pretty much settled as Sapporo put the game away with 3 more. With the win, Sapporo now faces the Sam Wai Raptors on Sunday, June 5th in a repeat matchup from 2019.
