Championship Game
B6 - Back in the Saddle - Glaciers reclaim B crown, double up GN-Bruins 8-4
Jumping out to an early 3 goal lead, the Glaciers never looked back in knocking off the GN-Bruins 8-4 for the B League championship. With the win, the Glaciers reclaimed the B League throne and won the organization's third Long Island Cup.

The Glaciers scored three times in the first seven minutes to build an insurmoutable league. The Bruins briefly closed to 4-3 five minutes into the second but two quick answer goals by B League MVP Jack Radin essentially settled the match. Radin littered the scoresheet in this game with 4 goals and 2 assists. In the playoffs, Radin led the Glaciers in scoring with 12 goals.

Championship Game
C5 - Gut Check - Snipes score three unanswered to snatch C title from Bolts 5-4
C4 - Back on Ice - Bolts chill Snipes 3-2 in OT
Digging deep for the requisite mettle, Snipes rallied to rebuff the Bolts 5-4 for the C League championship. Snipes defended their Fall '15 C title and added a fourth Long Island Cup to their mantle.

Snipes started strong and nabbed a quick 2-0 lead. They could not, however, extend this lead. The Bolts steadily pressured the offensive zone and flipped the score to lead 4-2 late second. The game pivoted again with just seven seconds left in the second. Off a seemingly harmless faceoff, Snipes stole a goal to jolt the Bolts. Energized, Snipes needed only 20 more seconds to tie and 6 minutes later to regain the lead. In the final eight minutes, the Bolts swarmed the zone to only be repeatedly denied by the stout play of C League MVP Anthony Dellatto. The resolute Dellatto made several spectacular stops, some while prone and compromised. In three playoff games, Dellato made 96 saves.

Championship Game
D4 - Cold Cases - Beers pound NWO 11-4 to capture D1 title
In a near flawless all-around display, Beers dominated in all phases to convincingly defeat NWO 11-4 to capture the D1 championship. This title win is the organization's first D1 title and fourth Long Island Cup overall.

Playing with focus, purpose, and precision, Beers were unrelenting on offense and formidable on defense. They started strong and led 2-0 after the first, 5-0 after the second. Leading this virtuoso effort was D1 League MVP Alan Nafte. Emblematic of the overall team performance, Nafte was swift, forceful, and potent. Nafte kickedstarted the Beers attack with two early goals and later added a third.

Championship Game
DD4 - Twice is Nice - Stingers persistance saps Scouts-RWB 5-3 to defend D2 crown
Shaking off a sluggish start, the Stingers relentless pressure stressed and cracked the Scouts-RWB 5-3 to win the D2 championship. With the win, the Stingers defended their Fall '15 D2 title and lifted the Long Island Cup for the second time.

The Stingers found themselves in the familiar position of trailing early as they failed to convert several offensive chances. But, true to form, they were resilient defensively, kept the Scouts close, and ultimately found their way. The offensive catalyst in this match (and the playoffs) was D2 League MVP Joe Rizzo. Late in the second period, Rizzo scored both the tying and going ahead goals in typical Stingers fashion - battling and refusing to abandon a play. The Stingers would never trail again. In the playoffs, Rizzo had a hand in half of the Stingers scores.

Winner's Bracket
DD2 - Bug Collar - Stingers prick BK-Bulldogs 6-3
DD1 - Off the Couch - BK-Bulldogs trample Scouts-RWB 9-5

Snapping a 4-4 tie late in the second, Dump-n-Chase scored seven unanswered to put away the Panthers 11-4 for the E1 championship. With this championship, Dump-n-Chase raised the Long Island Cup in their first try.

Despite working several two goals leads, Dump could not break away from the Panthers until late in the second. Just 15 seconds after the Panthers tied it at 4-4 with 2:32 left in the second, Dump answered back. This decisive goal sparked a seven goal deluge that finally tamed the scrappy Panthers. Leading the charge throughout the playoffs was E1 League MVP Mickey Wallace. In this winner-take-all match, Wallace had a hand in seven of the eleven Dump goals. Overall, he netted a remarkable 19 goals in 6 playoff games.

Championship Game
EE6 - The Defense Bests - Ice-Dogs shut down Misifits 2-0 to capture E2 title
Behind a stifling defense, the Ice Dogs controlled much of the match and scored just enough to deny the Misfits a repeat E2 championship. This title win is the Ice Dogs second Long Island CUp and first in three years.

The Ice Dogs notched the only needed goal late in the first period with a Scott Hamilton tally. Their exceptional defense made it stand. Fronted by E2 League MVP John Klein, the Ice Dogs defense smothered the Misfits attack. Klein, the Dogs' resident Minister of Defense, patrolled the kitchen with muscle and savvy. He led his defensive mates in an outstanding performance of blocking shots, clearing rebounds, and limiting scoring chances. In the playoffs, the Ice Dogs allowed just four goals in three games.
