FlexJet took the early lead on a pair of first chukker goals from Nic Roldan, 2-1.  Lechuza got on the scoreboard with a 40-yard penalty conversion from Agustin Garcia Grossi.

Goals were scarce in the second period with FlexJet providing impressive defensive coverage and shutting down the Lechuza attack.  Magoo Laprida was credited with both FlexJet goals that extended their lead to 4-1.

Consecutive goals from the field from Grossi and 10-goaler Juan Martin Nero cut the FlexJet lead to a single goal, 4-3.  Roldan’s third goal of the game kept FlexJet in front at the end of the first half, 5-3.

The two teams exchanged goals in the fourth chukker.  Roldan made good on a 60-yard penalty conversion while Lechuza added a goal from the field from Nero.  FlexJet continued to lead, 6-4.

FlexJet got into foul trouble in the fifth, with Nico Pieres converted penalty shots from the 30-yard and the 60-yard lines to tie the game at 6-6.  Roldan’s fifth goal of the game gave the lead back to FlexJet on a magnificent effort that covered nearly 280 yards.  At the end of the fifth t was FlexJet in the lead, 7-6.

A determined Lechuza team took the field in the sixth chukker with Pieres tying the game at 7-7 with a goal from the field.  FlexJet responded with goals from Miguel Astrada and Roldan for a 9-7 advantage, but Lechuza wasn’t ready to give up.  Grossi scored with just under three minutes left in regulation time and Pieres added another goal from the field that tied it at 9-9 and forced a sudden-death overtime period.

After a brief intermission both teams returned to the field with FlexJet looking to take back the game that they had dominated for much of the afternoon.

With both teams fighting for control of the game in the opening minute of the overtime period, Lechuza found themselves on the attack, with Pieres scoring the winning goal with less than a minute-and-a-half into play.

Pieres and Grossi scored four goals apiece for Lechuza.  Nero added two goals for the win.  Roldan’s five goals led the FlexJet offense.  Laprida scored three times and Astrada added a goal in a losing effort.

The current play-off picture has Lechuza facing Valiente in Sunday’s first quarterfinal match at 11:30am while FlexJet will take the field in the 3pm contest against Coca-Cola.

Thanks a lot: Alex Webbe
