Division I - Semi-Finals

Laxachusetts 11, Midwest Select 6
Midwest Select came out strong, scoring the first goal less than two minutes into the game, however Laxachusetts responded quickly with five unanswered goals before the end of the first quarter. Although Mike Orefice from Laxachusetts dominated on Faceoff's, the two teams exchanged goals throughout the second quarter, bringing the score to 9-5 at the half. The third quarter provided far less action with only one Laxachusetts goal in the frame. PJ Bogle of Midwest Select scored two goals in the final quarter, however Laxachusetts' speed and ball movement ultimately proved too much for the Midwest team. Laxachussets' Trevor O'Brien scored his fourth, and the last goal of the game, bringing the final score to 11-6.

Baltimore Crabs 10, FCA 5
The first quarter of this semi-final game showcased two evenly matched teams as they exchanged goals early, with the Crabs up early at 3-2. Both teams showcased exceptional Faceoff players, Hunter Moreland from the Crabs and Trevor Baptiste from FCA. While Baptiste ultimately came away with three more wins, Moreland contributed to his team's success with a goal and an assist. The Crabs steadily expanded their lead outscoring FCA 4-1 in the second quarter and finishing the first half up 7-3. The 3rd quarter demonstrated even scoring by both teams however FCA ultimately could not overcome the balanced attack and strong defense of the Baltimore Crabs. Chase Wittich, of the Baltimore Crabs, brought the game to a 10-5 end with the game's only fourth quarter goal. The Baltimore Crabs will once again face Laxachusetts in a Championship Game rematch from 2013.
