Gobbler Recap

The 2015 Gobbler has come to a close. I want to thank the teams and players participating in this event. We want to recognize that have traveled from Green Bay, Mequon, Madison, Lake Country, Kenosha, Chicago, Wauwatosa, Milwaukee and Cincinnati. It was great to see friends and players who have participated at different levels each year.

Congratulations to Deez Buck for winning the high school division.

The mens division ended in ta 3-3 tie, followed by a four minute over time. Neither team prevailed, so we moved it to a five goal shootout. The Oulaws and the Muffin Stuffers battled it out to 5-5 tie and spilt the cup.

Until next year, have a happy holiday.
