2007 Tampa Bulls Win the 2019 MLK Tournament in Orlando!

Congratulations to the Bulls on another tournament win!  The Bulls traveled to Orlando to compete in the 12U AA Blue division which was the top division in their age bracket.  

They started the weekend with a disappointing 4-4 tie with the CFHC Bears.  With a 1:44 left in the game, the Bulls led the Bears 4-2.  Within about 60 seconds, the Bulls let up 2 goals allowing the Bears to tie the game.  The second game in the round robin play was a 3-2 loss to the Charlotte Rush.   The Bulls finished out the pool play with a 3-1 win over the Carolina Rage.  This win put them in a tie for 2nd place with the Rage and since they won their head to head competition, the Bulls made it to the Championship game allowing a rematch with the Bears.  

The Bulls came out laser focused and ready to play a team they had not yet beat this season.  It was a true team effort with everyone contributing to the win.  The Bulls goal tender stopped 25 shots, the  defense blocked 17 additional shots, Dean Johnson placed a perfect shot from the high slot over the goalie's shoulder and every player made a commitment to tiring out the much bigger team on the Olympic ice.  The empty net goal at the end of the game by Sasha Raskin sealed the 2-0 win over the Bears to win the championship.  Congratulations Bulls!
