Jokers Season Ends With Playoff Loss
The Jokers of Doom played very well at the end of the spring 2017 season to secure a playoff spot. Unfortunately, they ended up in the 4th position and a date with top seed Springfield Chiefs. Things did not go well from the start as the team found itself down 1-0 quickly in the first and couldn’t stop the onslaught as the lead eventually grew to 6-0 before Ken Herren finally flipped in a goal mouth pass to make it 6-1. A violent scuffle in the 3rd period would result in the ejection of 2 players including veteran Frank Melillo. The game would end with a final score of 7-1. The Jokers will look to improve in the upcoming summer session which will include an 8 team division. Captain Jim Brunetti is working the phones hard to fill out the roster.
