Team 1 – 54
Team 4 – 49
Indianapolis – Immediately after the final buzzer of the PFOL Finals Game 2 sounded Edmound Elzy’s teammates mobbed him and congratulated him. Elzy had finally won a ring. Up until that moment only him and Kyle Krol were the only PFOL players to play all 6 seasons without winning a championship.
Elzy’s Team 1, swept Team 4 in two games to capture the title. Edmound Elzy was named MVP of the Finals. Seconds after the final buzzer sounded, Elzy ran out of the arena and into the locker room area. “I needed to be alone and have my Dirk moment”, said Elzy. He then showered and left without so much as a team picture.
A day later, Elzy commented on his accomplishment.
“This is the best team I have been on in my career. There was seasons where my 2nd best player was Alex Montagano. I’ll let you figure out how those season ended up. I am glad that I won my ring and now I can go back to do doing what I do best, scoring and not passing”, said Elzy.
A disgusted Andrew Boehner was visibly upset after the game. “MVP? I should have won MVP. I was the glue that kept that team together”, said Boehner.
- This PFOL Finals was the lowest attended Finals in PFOL history. “That’s because the best team wasn’t playing in the Finals”, said Alan Mowrey
- Tamba Samba vowed to get basketball shoes for PFOL 7. He played in ragged running shoes the entire season.
- Kyle Krol has guaranteed that he will win a ring next season.
- Rob Laycock has signed an endorsement deal with Stromgren Athletic Compression Apparel http://www.stromgren-store.com/

Team 2 - 51
Indianapolis – Karma was not on Team 2’s side on Monday. Team 2 learned on Thursday that Edmound Elzy, Jason Rost, Brian Stutzman and Tamba Samba would miss the series deciding Game 3 schedule for Friday. Team 2 decided to move the game to Monday, so that both teams would be at full strength.
“At the end of the day, I didn’t want there to be an asterisk next to our name on the trophy. We could have easily played the game as scheduled and we most likely would have won by at least 70 points, but that’s no fun”, said Alan Mowrey.
Edmound Elzy’s Team 1 held on to a 58-53 win and earned a trip to the PFOL Finals. Elzy was named defensive player of the week after he held Kevin Murray to a season low 14 points on 6-19 shooting.
Andrew Boehner had a comment however: “Get me the ball, I need more shots”.
Team 2 played their second straight game without All-Star forward Vance Catlin.
“If we would have played them at full strength, I think it would have been a different outcome. I guess we will have to put an asterisk next to this series, said Alan Mowrey.
Rob Laycock’s only concern was the $70.00 he spent over the weekend on this pair of padded shorts. “I was planning on getting at least 3 games in with my new padded shorts”, said Laycock.
Team 4 - 51
Team 3 - 35
