Great Post as usual, congrats to the Kings on finally winning it all, but even more important, someone besides the Lakers or Bluebirds won! Also, it says 1927 champions, not 1928

1928 MHL Playoffs: Abbott Cup Final

(W1) Toronto Lakers (40-18) vs (E1) Brooklyn Kings (38-17-3)

Games 1 and 2 were to be played at Toronto’s Lakeshore Arena. The Old and small arena still had its charm, and the home crowd was rowdy. It was a great atmosphere for a matchup between the league’s top two teams. Toronto went 20-9 at home during the regular season, while Brooklyn had a surprising record of only 15-12-2 on the road.

The visiting Kings got started early. Laurence Antoine took a shot that deflected off a defender and right to Paul Anderson, who beat Jerome Bouchard and gave Brooklyn the lead just 46 seconds into the series. Toronto would get some chances to come back, but former Laker Frank Clercius did his job and turned all the shots away. Antoine had another chance late, but his shot rang off the post and out, keeping the score at 1-0 after 20 minutes of play.

In the second period, there was another early goal, this time from the home Lakers. Greg Mullins, usually known for his playmaking, ripped a laser shot past Clercius, that went in and out of the net so quickly that Clercius didn’t realize it was a goal. Besides the goal, the second period was very similar to the first, with the Lakers outchancing the Kings. There would be no further scoring, and they headed to the third tied at 1 apiece.

In the third, it was more of the same, Toronto getting more chances, but Brooklyn still getting some good looks of their own. However, in this period both Clercius and Bouchard stood tall, not letting anything past them. The final buzzer sounded, and the two teams were headed to overtime. 

The opening frame started shaky for Brooklyn, as they gave Toronto a net-front scramble in the first minute. Greg Bekkering had a clean look, but Clercius robbed him. 3 minutes later, Brooklyn’s Laurence Antoine grabbed the puck in the offensive zone, and took a shot while Bouchard was screened. It went right past him and in, and Brooklyn won t

American Football Association Cup 1917 – Midwest Region Final

In the Midwest Regional Final, the Chicago West Side Kicks were host to their nearby rival, Milwaukee Cream City FC.  A large contingent of Milwaukee fans took the relatively short train ride down to West Side Park to see the battle. The local boys from the Windy City were feeling quite confident after topping the Penultimate Division to make an immediate return to the Ultimate.  Cream City had suffered a disappointing fall season, being only 2 points from a relegation spot, but they turned things around in the spring to climb up to a respectable 8th place.  Tensions were high in the stands and on the field as well.  Almost from the opening kickoff, brutal fouls were the rule of the day.  It was an ugly affair with no flow to the game.  The match was mainly played in the midfield.  Any budding attacks were quickly squelched with hard and usually illegal tackles.  One such tackle in the 21st minute led to Cream City free kick some twenty-five yards out.  The hulking Paul Tanner was brough forward to take the free kick.  With his powerful left foot, he smashed the ball towards the far post, but it deflected off of the head of Chicago’s Caden Brandt and was redirected to the near post.  Goalkeeper Robert Wills never had a chance.  Brandt, for his part, was prone on the field for a few minutes.  Smelling salts revived him, but Brandt was still dazed and was ineffectual for the rest of the match.  Hard play continued into the second half as Chicago looked for the equalizer.  In the dying minutes, the entire West Side Kicks squad was in the penalty area for a corner kick.  After pinballing around, the ball came to Micah Ford who launched a rocket from deep in his own half into the empty Chicago goal to seal the win.
