Finland escapes with 5-4 win.

The teams combined for 10 goals, with 9 of them counting.

This game had everything but defense.

Germany scored first when Tripp shot one in off of a Finland player's skate. Finland nearly tied it at the other end, but a crazy flurry of events which saw the puck hit a couple of posts, almost cross the line, and hit a myriad of sticks and legs, but never crossed the goal line.

Just before the period ended they did get the tying goal when Chewie scored.

Joe Smith scored with Armand in the penalty box, then Caruso scored with Steeves in the sin bin, as Finland's special teams put the navy team up 3-1.

Rick Armand had a breakaway but was stopped by Fuji. But he got the rebound, and nobody in navy was coming back to help out Fuji. After two more saves, Armand finally slid the puck over to Steve Thompson for an easy open net tap in.

"Where the hell is everyone?" Fuji screamed.

Jake had a real nice tip in out of mid air to make it 4-2, but 20 seconds later Steeves scored for Germany to make it 4-3. Before the 2nd period ended Todd Nichol scored for Germany to tie it at 4's.

In the third a breakaway by Make Melito provided the only goal, and that would be the game winner.

Both teams are now 4-6 and tied with Sweden who is also 4-6, with just 2 games left in the season.
