WCBN Broomball Advances to Round of 32

Ann Arbor, MI -- WCBN Broomball fell behind early but never panicked, riding a stellar defensive performance to a 5-1 win in the opening round of the Co-Rec Novice B Level A Playoffs. After Born to Play Broomball scored a goal to take a 1-0 lead at the 12:03 mark, WCBN rallied behind two goals off the broom of Chelsea Slater (Cincinnati , OH / Turpin High School) to reclaim a 2-1 lead going into the intermission. Kevin "Hulk Hogan" Gregus (Crystal Lake, IL / Prairie Ridge High School) picked up the assist, his fourth of the season.

Content to grind it out defensively, WCBN played a conservative second half holding the one goal lead until captain, Stuart Zaas (Solon, OH/ Solon High School) picked off a Born to Play pass and roofed a shot just over the goalie's outstretched blocker to give WCBN a two-goal lead. WCBN did not relent however, as a goal scored by a Born to Play girl would have tied the game. Tony "Don't call me Michael" Bolton (Canton, MI / Salem High School) played outstanding defense throughout the game especially down the final stretch. As Born to Play pulled their goalie, Zaas launched a pass down the ice to a streaking Slater who dove, fully extended to tap in her fourth goal of the game and her team-leading 12th of the season. Slater and Rachel Burns played all 29 minutes, Burns even remained on the ice after suffering a nasty fall.

WCBN advances to the round of 32 where they will take on the winner of Armenian Assassins/Smoke on the Water on Tuesday, April 1st at 9:40 PM at Yost Ice Arena. Tickets are first come first served, so reserve yours before Yost sells out. WCBN also received some good news after the game as the league commissioner informed them that Gregus's urine sample from last week disappeared. The league cannot find the sample and since it never made it to the lab, Gregus will be presumed innocent and may continue to play. The league has no suspects in the disappearance and the league employee who was placed in charge of the sample has been dismissed.
