Harrisburg, PA – This weekend the 2011-2012 season comes to a close as the PIHA Finals head east to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania and the Susquehanna Sports Center. The weekend’s main event features a 7-game series as the Western Conference Champion, Parker Prowlers take on the East’s best, Suffolk Sting. The Sting come to the Finals after beating the New Jersey Grizzlies in 5 games just two weeks ago, while the Prowlers took an easier road as they took advantage of a first round bye and then a sweep of the upstart Mile High Miners. Both these teams are loaded with talent which should make for an unbelievable finals and a long, physical series.

The weekend will also showcase the Minor Division Finals as the final four teams will play to see who the best minor team in the league is. The east will be represented by the Scottsdale Inferno from the Pittsburgh, PA area while the Sting organization will also be sending their minor team. A very good West Parker Prowlers team heads east out of Denver, CO while the Front Range Thunder takes advantage of the trip east from Colorado Springs, CO. These teams will play a round robin format culminating on Sunday with two 3-game series to see who is crowned champions. Masters and Junior divisions will also be playing during the weekend making for an action packed weekend at the Sports Center.

“We are very excited to be hosting the finals out east this year. The pros should be a great series and the minor teams coming are very, very talented. The league looks forward to seeing everyone in Harrisburg and having a great weekend of hockey,” commented league founder, Charley Yoder. Weekend’s events begin Friday night with the season ending on Sunday. Tickets for the weekend are $5 a day or $10 for the weekend with all kids 8 and under getting in free.
