  It's finally here! The Hobart intrasquad championships . . . okay, maybe that's a little simplistic . . . Anyhow, a classic matchup between two teams that played two one-goal regular season games!  Dallas and Denver.  One team that almost went wire to wire in the regular season versus a long time title contender that is making their fourth straight MLL title game appearance. Lots of firepower on both sides.
