Got royally fucked over in my rec league hockey playoff game tonight. We were up 1-0 in a best of 3 series.
The first game they were pretty chippy, especially since they were all large older white guys and we are mostly small Asian guys. We had to keep our heads up to avoid getting slashed or kneed despite it being a no-hitting tier. Despite that we still won 5-1 fairly easily. This game they played more cleanly, that is until the 3rd period and we were up 6-3.
They started running our goalie and caught up 6-5. They ran our goalie for a third time and few of our guys retaliated. The ref who was an obnoxious smart-mouth the entire game handed the opposing team a 5-on-3 power play with two minutes remaining. They ended up scoring two and we lost 7-6.
That's not the end of it, turns out the guy who scored the bulk of their goals tonight supposedly doesn't even play for their team and was brought in as a ringer. This could disqualify them from the game, but will be tough to prove.
They brought their wives and kids to watch the game, I hope they're fucking happy letting their kids and family watch them cheat their way to a win.
