June 14th, 2009, Malvern, PA – In a day that featured three 1-goal ALC victories, including a 4 goal (in 7 minutes) come from behind win, the C1s went 5-0 on Sunday to capture the 2009 Liberty Shootout Championship.
The Championship game featured a highly anticipated “rubber match” between Wissahickon and ALC. The C1s had beaten Wiss in a week 1 SEPYLA matchup back in March. Wiss returned the favor in non-league play in late May. As chance would have it, both teams won their round robins and semi-final games to meet for a 3rd time - in the Liberty Shootout finals. Despite the fact that Wiss beefed up their roster with some age eligible B League players, they could not solve ALCs stingy defense & stellar goaltending, scoring just once in the finale. Wiss also played tough D, but allowed 2 goals, giving the C1s the 2-1 victory.
On the season, the C1s were 8-0 in league play and 18-2-0 overall, allowing an impressive 2.35 goals against average.
