The D2 state champions were crowned last weekend. No offence.
I think this is a fitting matchup for the D2 finals. No two teams have been as dominant in D2 recently as Ben Franklin and STM. This is the 5th finals appearance for each team since 2013. In fact, at least one of these teams has been in the finals for the last 8 years.
And both teams have revenge on their mind.
Ben Franklin beat STM in the finals in 2014 and the semis in 2015.
STM knocked Ben Franklin out of the playoffs 2017, 2018, and 2019

Nah, revenge isn't a motivating factor for STM, rather giving our best in all that we do.
Ben Franklin are the class of our division and have our utmost respect. We do not believe we’ve won anything yet, but we’re excited for the opportunity to compete later this week in one more game together.
Having played BF and seen STM, I would say if this game were in the regular season it would go 5-1 STM. But this isn’t the regular season, and the finals does funny things to teams. With that in mind I still see STM winning, but I’d say 2-0 or possibly 2-1 with the BF goal being a late goal when they push it all up. Now next year could be a different story with BF only losing 2 key players (with replacements waiting in the wings)
