TORONTO - Team rosters for the 2019 edition of the Super Cup tournament have been announced! And with six squads going at it this year it's expected to be a full house at McCormick Arena this coming Friday, April 19.

The SCREAMIN' JAYS will be backstopped by Lads goaltender Luis Freitas and GM'ed by Humiliation sniper Jimmy Sioukas. Brockton Rockets speedster Bryan Eelhart, Jason Pilling, Mike Daniels and Scott Prudham will impart some 2019 UUHA Championship swagger to the squad, while GSI's Seth Singer, Lads veteran Roger Santos, Humiliation rookie phenom Sean Morrison and Wheatfield Souldiers forward Bob Lavery will compliment the diverse lineup. Dan Schwartz, Luke Connors and Vlad Intelegator round out the bench.

TORONTO - The Brockton Rockets defeated the Beau's Beer Hack 3-1 this past Saturday night at Upper Canada College to claim their first UUHA Championship title. Rockets forward Oliver Sutherns scored just a minute-and-a-half into the 1st period, converting a passing play with Dustin Harris and Blaine Tynes to get the Brockton Boys on the board early. The same combo would strike seven minutes later, making it 2-0 in the Rockets favour. After a scoreless 2nd period that saw both teams trade five shots each, the President's Cup-winning Hack halved their opponents lead as Aaron Foster found Louis Durand streaking toward the net where he solved goaltender Jonathan Dickson with a twine-bulging wrister. But as the clock ticked down, and with Hack goalie Aaron Brophy on the bench for the extra attacker, Mike Wilcox would seal the deal with an unassisted empty-netter.
The Beau's Beer Hack (who have two UUHA Championships to their credit) would not leave the ice empty-handed, though, as team captain Joe McGinty was officially presented with the Presidents Cup, and veteran Hack forward Aaron Foster was awarded the UUHA MVP Belt as league MVP for the 2018/19 season.
Earlier in the evening, the Humiliation claimed the Bronze Medal Gnome by defeating the Wheatfield Souldiers 5-2. Luke Moretti potted two goals and was credited with two assist in that one, while linemate Paul Morris scored two goals as well. Mike Thompson had the other goal for the Humiliation, while Wheatfield Souldiers Scott Pettus and Mike Harkness tallied for the losing side. Souldiers goaltender John Sutton faced 20 shots, while Humiliation back-up tender Dan Hammerle was tested with 16 attempts.
In the 7:00 pm Consolation Final, the Parkdale Hockey Lads saw their losing streak extended to a remarkable 14 games as they were blanked 5-0 by the Gas Station Islanders. Dom Chartier, Steve Boyd and Richard Switzer were among GSI goal scorers and Joseph Steinman earned the shutout.
Live rink rock was provided by the Black Aces (Jokers regulars Marc Hickox and Tyler Stewart) along with a slate of guest players including the Sadies' Sean Dean, various UUHA players including Luke Moretti, Wes Gerbrandt, Simon Evers and Brian Bentley, along with percussionist Aspen Shurland.
