A slight followup to Friday's Division II final where Cheshire defeated Enfield 3-2 for the title apparently involving a bit of controversy.
With 8 seconds left in the third period, Alan Dagesse, who scored the game-winning goal, was called for interference and sent to the penalty box.
Cheshire coach Jim Riccitelli immediately called time out.
When the game resumed, Enfield coach Joe Bonfiglio also pulled goalie Justin Boice, which should have given him a 6-on-4 advantage. However, video replays on this morning (Saturday) showed that Cheshire actually had five players on the ice as time ran out and the game ended.
Although the result would have likely been the same, nothing can be done as CIAC officials always remind us that there are no appeals allowed in the playoffs.
Bonfiglio did not mention it after the game. On Friday, the only one who noticed the mistake was George "The Coach" DeMaio of ESPNradio1300.
