GSI, Souldiers Remain Undefeated While Hack, Rockets Suffer Losses

TORONTO - The Gas Station Islanders took their place atop the leader board this past Saturday night after edging the reigning UUHA Champions by a score of 3-2 at Upper Canada College. Meanwhile, the Humiliation improved to 2-1-0 with a 3-2 win over the Beau's Beer Hack, and the Wheatfield Souldiers drew even for a second consecutive game, skating to a 2-2 tie with a spare-studded Parkdale Hockey Lads side. That game represented the league's second-ever technical default, though, as the Lads were only able to dress four roster players, meaning the Souldiers benefitted from the extra point in the standings.
 
The Humiliation's Jimmy Sioukas, Gas Station Islanders Seth Singer and Eddie Belanger, and Jokers veteran Sean Cullen were among the squad of eager spares who answered the conscription call of the woefully short-benched Lads. All totalled, eight spares turned up for the team's 7:00 pm contest vs. the Wheatfield Souldiers - so many, in fact, that the Parkdale side ceded a player (Rockets regular Bryan Eelhart) to the Souldiers who, with nine skaters in their dressing room, were a natch fit for a 10th.
 
The bounty of extras meant the game could be played as a regular UUHA contest, without having to resort to a sticks-in-the-middle scenario as had been the likely plan just a couple of hours prior to puck drop. The augmented Lads opened the scoring near the end of the 1st period, with league points co-leader Ian Seeton converting a pass from spare Ryan Vanderhoek. The better part of a full period would transpire before the Lads struck again, this time with spare Brad McKeown tallying unassisted.
 
The Souldiers would draw within one midway through the 3rd frame, though, as Eric Toth completed a play involving defenceman Mike Wilk and Morningstars call-up Greg Thomas. Just under two minutes later, it was Brad Sveistrup's turn to pot his first of the season, combining with Wilk and Scott Pettus to put a bow on the tie. The final five minutes saw no additional scoring as the two squads shook hands on a lively back-and-forth affair.
 
Seven different GSI players registered points in the team's 3-2 win over the Brockton Rockets this past Saturday night, demonstrating the kind of depth that has elevated this season's Gassers to first place in the league standings. Dominic Chartier, Richard Switzer and call-up Jake Adams all scored for the Isles, while John Pickernell, Eddie Belanger, Bry Nevin and Tim Vesely picked up assists. Dustin Harris had the two tallies for the Rockets, who have now dropped two games in a row after opening the season with a win. All three of Brockton's games have been tight contests, with the team sporting just a -2 goal differential.
  
The evening's final match pitted the Humiliation up against the Beau's Beer Hack - two teams who last met in the Playoffs Semi-finals back in March (the Hack won that one by a score of 3-0). The Humiliations Sean Morrison and Luke Moretti conspired to make it 2-0 by the end of the opening frame in this one, but Hacker Chris Barkley would halve the lead, combining with James Murphy and Sean Cordner to solve spare goaltender Joseph Steinman midway through the 2nd. Morrison would reestablish the two-point spread at the 4:37 mark of the 3rd, though, only to see the Hack get back within one three minutes later, thanks to a goal from Mike Wilcox (on loan for the game from the Rockets). The final minute saw no more red lights as the Humiliation posted a 3-2 victory over the Hack.
 
UUHA action takes a break for the Thanksgiving Weekend but resumes Saturday, Oct. 19 with the Hack taking on the Jokers at 7:00 pm, the Rockets going up against the Souldiers at 8:00 pm and the Gas Station Islanders taking to the ice with the Humiliation at 9:00 pm. All three contests take place at UCC.
