Jack SiglyCorrespondent IJuly 15, 2008

The East Hartford Devils took their first championship in five seasons. This is the eighth championship for the team.

The team's MVP, Quarterback, Wide Receiver Michael Voyer, and Chris Smith will be leaving the team at the end of this year, and this will truly kill this team, Mike has been the quarterback since 2003 when they won the championship for the fifth time ever.

East Hartford sports has been terrible since 2001, but the Devils have made some hope for this town. Mike has announced he will be leaving permanently, and will not return for any team. He quoted by saying "I want to have fun, yet this sport doesn't pay money, and to be honest I can't afford to work and not get paid, at least I'm an honest athlete and say, 'yes, it's all about money' (silly laugh) I love this team,but it's time to say 'good bye'".

Chris left to join the team that lost in the bowl, he said, "Mike is my main guy, so if I can't have him as a leader, it's time to go somewhere I can step up and be a leader."

Both players leave with more than two championships under their belt and said they wish the Devils the best.

By the way, the final score was:

East Hartford Devils- 35

Hartford Tiger- 24
