Championship Final, 2022 Season Postponed Indefinitely
Posted By: uuhadood
Sunday, January 9, 2022


TORONTO - The final three games of the 2021 UUHA Playoffs have been postponed indefinitely, including the Championship Final featuring the Jokers and Humiliation. That game, along with the Bronze Medal contest and the Consolation Final, were scheduled for Dec. 18, 2021, but were postponed due to Upper Canada College closing facilities early for the holiday season. With Ontario provincial regulations currently prohibiting or limiting the operation of indoor sports facilities, the UUHA is expected to remain dormant until at least sometime in February, 2022. At such time as the league can take to the ice again, the current plan of action is to follow through with the Championship Final, award the Championship Cup and then commence an abridged 2022 season of some sort. In the meantime, the UUHA encourages all of its constituents to stay safe and remain healthy and active as we wait out this latest interruption.
 
Humiliation, Jokers to Vie for 2021 UUHA Championship

TORONTO - The Jokers defeated a pale imitation of the Wheatfield Souldiers by a score of 5-2 this past Saturday night to advance easily to the Championship Final of the UUHA's abridged and pandemic-handicapped 2021 season. Meanwhile, the Beau's Beer Hack bettered the Gas Station Islanders by a score of 4-2, while the Humiliation edged the Brockton Rockets 2-1.
 
Eric Toth combined with Jimmy Murphy to put the Wheatfield Souldiers on the scoreboard first, but less than two minutes later Mike Takacs tied things up with an innocent looking shot from the corner that caromed off the left inside pad of reluctant Souldiers goaltender Chuck Mogat and into the back of the net. Charlie Rishor and Gary Rideout Jr. both registered 2nd period tallies to put the Funniest Team on Ice ahead 3-1 going into the final frame. But veteran Burton Boy Wes Gerbrandt cut into that lead early in the 3rd period for his first goal of the Playoffs. The Jokers answered back midway through the period with a controversial tally that some witnesses said should've been called back due to goaltender interference, before Jeff Kassel iced the game with an empty-net insurance marker. Jokers goalie Burke Lawrence earned the win, which saw both teams register 17 shots each.
 
The postgame handshake was over quickly as the Souldiers had only six skaters dressed for the game - the leanest turnout (in terms of number of players, not average player weight) in the 22-year history of the team.
 
The Beau's Beer Hack suffered from a similar attrition issue in their 8:00 pm contest with the Gas Station Islanders, with just seven skaters available for the game. Despite that challenge the team managed to double-up on the Isles, holding offensive threat Dominic Chartier to just two points (a goal and an assist on Yan Bourassa's 3rd-period tally) and posting a final score of 4-2. Luis Durand had a pair of goals in the win, while points-column regulars Aaron Foster and Chris Cacciotti also lit the lamp for the Beau's Boys. 
 
With the victory, the Hack positioned themselves for a potential berth in the Championship Final, pending the outcome of the 9:00 pm game between the Humiliation and reigning UUHA champions, the Brockton Rockets.
 
Rockets forward James Neilson put his side ahead early in the opening frame, combining with Blaine Tynes and John Marshall to solve Humiliation goaltender Marc Hickox, hot off a conditioning stint in Jamaica. A late 2nd-period goal off the stick of Jimmy Sioukas put a bow on proceedings, and that's the way it would stay for well into the 3rd. But with just 2:02 remaining on the clock, Rockets scoring leader Dustin Harris was called for Holding, meaning he would have to watch the rest of the game from the sin bin. Harris got some company a minute-and-a-half later, when teammate Robert Campbell was called for goaltender interference, affording the Black Wizards a golden opportunity in the form of a two-man advantage. The advantage would not be squandered as Humiliation captain Mike Thompson found Luke Moretti with a sweet no-look pass and the ribbon was ripped off with 13 seconds to go. The game went into the books as a 2-1 Humiliation win.
 
With the Hack and Humiliation victories, both teams finished the night tied with four points in the Playoffs. However, due to the fact the Humiliation defeated the Hack in Week One of the Playoffs - in a defensively tight 2-1 squeaker - the Humiliation enjoys the tie-breaker benefit and advances to the Championship Final. That game is scheduled for 9:00 pm on Saturday, Dec. 18 at Upper Canada College.
 
The Hack and Gas Station Islanders will compete in the Bronze Medal game at 8:00 pm this coming Saturday, while the Wheatfield Souldiers and Brockton Rockets will renew acquaintances in the 7:00 pm Consolation Final.
