Maroon was the only losing team from Sunday's action not to be eliminated from their respective JAHA bracket, but Wilson's second and third goals late in Sunday's third period made sure that they took a convincing loss with them into loser-out action. Gene Cheeseman and Arne Johnson each provided an assist to Wilson in the game's closing minutes, adding to his unassisted second-period score.

Gabriel Hayden actually gave Maroon the early lead just minutes into the game, picking up the assist from Jeffrey Johns. DK Miners responded with a 5-0 run that stretched midway into the final stanza, though. Spike BIcknell, Micah Sommers, Cheeseman and Dawn Momblow joined Wilson in scoring during the stretch. Jayme Johns notched Maroon's second goal, with the assist coming from Jeff Welzin, but Wilson closed out the win with his second and third goals.

DK Miners outshot Maroon 23-12 in the contest and picked up a 10-save performance from Luke Adams in the net. Randy Host added 16 saves of his own for Maroon.

Black 6, Good Hardware 3

Henry Melville and Bill Holbrook netted a pair of goals apiece to lead a six-goal opening period for Black that eliminated Good Hardware from the Tier B playoffs.

Melville opened the scoring just a minute into the contest before Dave Haas answered to knot the score for Good Hardware. Black then fired off five more goals in the next 14 minutes to secure a dominant early lead.

Carrie Bohan and Mason Morriss also scored in the opening stanza for Black, while Melville led the effort with a pair of assists.

Craig Good and Steve Ricci tacked on goals late in the second and third periods, respectively, for Good Hardware, but the comeback effort fell short.

Good Harware actually outshot Black 15-13, but Scott Sell racked up 12 saves in the net for the dark team. Jodie Pessolano added 7 saves for the handy team.

Yellow 2, Bleu Chunks 1

Robert Lepere broke a nearly 20-minute tie by finding net off a Steve Florio assist in the final minute Sunday, knocking Bleu Chunks from the Tier B playoffs.

Hans Moser opened the scoring for Yellow, getting a helper from Bobby Jones late in the first period. Brant Oliphant answered for Bleu Chunks late in the second period, getting the assist from Dana Hanselman to knot the score until Lepere broke the tie late.

Bleu outshot Yellow 14-10, but picked up just 8 saves from Jeffrey Goetz in the net. Wayne Coleman added 13 saves for Yellow.

Gail Blundell assisted Johansen's goal, while Liam Carnahan gave Kunz the helper. Cazemier knotted the score midway through the third off assists from Colby Shibler and Jess Wakefield before closing the score late.

Orange outshot Purple in dominant fashion 29-11, but picked up just 8 saves from Pete Sommers in the net. Jason McAdoo added 27 saves for Purple.
