The Sundogs win with a 6-1 victory over the Laredo Bucks, and are on their way to the Ray Miron President’s Cup Finals!
As a two-year-old franchise, the Sundogs achievement is even more remarkable, considering that the team they defeated, the Laredo Bucks has gone to the finals the past four years in a row.
Next up, the Sundogs will face the defending President's Cup Champion Colorado Eagles. The Sundogs will have their hands full with the Eagles, as evidenced by their season record against them in eight games, winning three, and losing five. In six of those matchups, only one point has separated the winner and the loser. As for the other two? Well, there were only two points in those cases.
Congratulations to the Sundogs on their outstanding season and their tenacious victory!
