The semifinals of the PLL playoffs kicked off in Long Island Sunday with #1 seed Archers taking on #4 seed Redwoods. Redwoods beat Chaos 15-9 in the quarterfinals the previous week, while Archers enjoyed a bye week as the top seed. During their regular season meeting in Week 5, Archers took a 10-3 decision. This game would go much the same way, as Archers cruised to a 14-6 win to advance to the PLL Championship Game against Waterdogs on September 24 at Subaru Park in Philadelphia.
Ament sets the tone for Archers
Second half on repeat for Archers
Archers kept their foot on the gas in the third period. Goals from Ament, O’Keefe, Ryan Aughavin, and Leclaire made it 11-3, as Redwoods had another quarter-long scoring drought. Pannell fired a two-point goal in the fourth quarter to trim the deficit to six. But Archers would answer, as O’Keefe tallied his hat trick, and Ament finished his night with a two-point goal. Chris Merle scored for Redwoods in garbage time to make the final score 14-6.
