The GLASA Falcons advanced to the Championship game at the 2012 National Disabled Festival in Dallas, Texas on April 13 - 15!
In a six-game tourney series, the GLASA Falcons beat the Dallas Starskaters 13 to 1, the Florida Hurricanes 3 to 0, lost to the Minnesota Northern 0 to 6 and beat the Buffalo Warriors 5 to 2 to advance to the semi-finals to face Dallas again. In a hard-faught battle, the GLASA Falcons skated to a 2 to 0 win over Dallas thanks to an early goal followed by an empty-net insurance goal in the final minute of the game! On Sunday, the GLASA Falcons faced off with the Minnesota Northern in the Championship game. And although the GLASA Falcons skated their hearts out, battled Northern for three strong periods and created a few solid scoring chances, the Northern managed to score six unanswered goals. Despite the loss, the GLASA Falcons were very proud of their achievement in its first-ever national competition! Way to go GLASA Falcons. Congratulations on an amazing season!
