Megamen Boston are the Aleš Hřebeský Memorial 2012 champions Megamen Boston defeated home LCC Radotín in the Aleš Hřebeský Memorial final game and gain the trophy after three years.


Custodes started the final game better – Radek Skála scored after 17 seconds of play. Megamen equalized soon and get to lead 4 : 1. Radek Skála and Dominik Pešek answered, but Megamen added more goales. Scotty Komer stopped other Radotín shots. The ability to score was the main difference between oponents, LCC play was good but not as effective as Megamen‘s. Megamen won 11 : 5 and after last year loss to Canadian Love You to Death gain the trophy again. Love You to Death did not took part this year, but couple of their players appeared in Megamen‘s uniforms: Jamie Plunkett, Mike Drumm and Scott Komer.

Megamen defeated SK Lacrosse Jižní Město in the semi-final. Their game was tight at the beginning but the second half was similar to the final – Megamen excelled in shots and owercored the rival. Custodes semi-final oponent were Nova Scotia Privateers, the biggest surprise of the tournament, and the match was tough and attractive. Petr Poupě opened the score with a trick from behind the net, but Privateers turned the course of the match and lead 3 : 1. Then it was Custodes‘ turn and they scored four unanswered goals. They survived the final Privateers presure then and the final score was 5 : 4.

The bronze medal game between Nova Scotia Privateers and SK Lacrosse Jižní Město was another great battle. No more then one goal difference appeared on the score board and Jižní Město was in lead at the end of the game. Privateers called goalie Rob Collins to the bench and in last seconds used the man up situation and equalized, so penalty shots had to resolve the result. Privateers won them and could celebrate.

Green Gaels finished 5th after defeating LC Slavia. Gaels who won the tournament twice were on of the favorites this year again, but they were stopped by Megamen in the quarter-final. For Slavia the 6th place is a success in such competition.

Also the 7th place game was dramatic. London Knights defeated Bratislava Bats in penalty shots. Bats‘ placement in the top eight was another tournament surprise Young Radotín goalie Jakub Mareš kept the Knight’s net and did a great job. He received the prize for the best tournament goalie and he really deserved it.

It is a tradition in Radotín that the atmosphere was great and crowded stands cheered the players. The game level increased in comparison with the previous year and especially the teams from lower part of the tournament performed much better lacrosse then year ago. Upcoming 20th annual next year will be certainly very special.
