Congratulations to the 2015-2016 NA3HL South Division Champions, our own Point Mallard Ducks. A 5-4 victory over Atlanta and an early Sunday morning loss to Louisiana by Texas, led to the Ducks winning the South Division title. The Ducks and Texas tied with identical records of 35-9-3, but the Ducks owned the tie breaker, which was head-to-head competition during the regular season. The Ducks went 4-0 against the Brahamas.
“This was quite an accomplishment by this group of young men, we played through some adversity and injuries, and in January we pretty much played ourselves out of the race. Our guys just flat out battled back right until the end. It was a 3-way fight with Atlanta and Texas, congratulations to Texas and Atlanta on excellent seasons. This was a goal of ours since training camp, now we have to focus on preparing for Sugarland as we move into the first round of the playoffs,” stated Ducks GM/Head Coach Tom Winkler.
