Souldiers, Jokers, Lads Post Playoff Victories
Posted By: uuhadood
Sunday, March 04, 2012

TORONTO - The Jokers, Wheatfiield Souldiers and Parkdale Hockey Lads kicked off the 2012 UUHA Playoffs in winning style this past Saturday evening defeating the Gas Station Islanders, Parkdale Porcupines and Humiliation, respectively.

Islanders sniper Dominic Chartier opened the 2012 UUHA post-season scoring at the 6:46 mark of the 2nd period, bagging a power-play marker with help from linemate Klint Davies and defenceman Dave Bidini. The Souldiers answered back just two minutes later, though, with blueliner Joey Serlin jumping in from the point to deposit a Mike Harkness rebound up and over GSI back-up goalie Matthew Barber. Regular-season Souldiers points leader Eric Toth put his side ahead early in the 3rd, sending home a set-up pass from lanky centreman Jimmy Murphy. But the next two lamps would be lit by Islanders, specifically Chartier (capitalizing unassisted on a Souldiers turnover off an own-zone faceoff) and Tim Vesely (whose third-man effort on a goal-mouth scramble paid go-ahead goal dividends with just 2:20 remaining on the game).
 
But with goaltender Sheldon Shurland pulled for the extra attacker, Kelly McCaig potted one unassisted to knot the score with less than a minute remaining in the contest, ultimately sending proceedings to a game-deciding shootout. Although McCaig was unsuccessful in his shootout bid, so too were Islanders Davies and Chartier. Harkness and Toth, however, both scored on their tries, delivering Burton's Boys to the winner's circle in the process.
 
Despite a comically short bench (just seven skaters) the Parkdale Porcupines came within a goal of registering the first major upset of this season's UUHA Playoffs, falling to the first-place Jokers by a razor-thin 2-1 margin. Speedy 'Pines forward Todd Moffat got his side on the scoreboard first, potting an unassisted goal at the 2:29 mark of the opening frame. Jokers star Mike Takacs drew his side even late in the 2nd period, converting a pass from Hunter Collins to beat 'Pines back-up tender Luke Smit. Regular-season league points leader Steve Levine got his first of the post-season early in the 3rd (with Takacs and Paul Irving assisting) to put the Jokers ahead. That's how things would end, despite a dramatic last two minutes of play which saw the Jokers shorthanded after being caught with too many men on the ice.

The final contest of the night witnessed a classic match-up between the Parkdale Hockey Lads and the Humiliation, the latter of which owned the regular-season series between the two longtime rival squads. Nearly two thirds of the defensively-tight game transpired before any scoring took place. When the lamp was finally lit, it was Lads sniper Kyle Welton serving as wick man, with Nick Hehn and Dave Ball providing the figurative ladder at the 1:17 mark of the 2nd frame. Rather than resting on the laurels of their one-goal lead, though, the Lads stepped up the offensive pressure on the final period, outshooting their opponents 6-1 and potting two more goals (the last one being an empty-net tally) in the process. Tom Nesbitt was responsible for both 3rd period goals while Fabian Ruzic, and Mikes Frolick and Ryan garnering assists.
 
The winners of this past Saturday's games will now take part in the A Pool round-robin series this coming Saturday, March 10 wherein each team will play two games to determine semi-final seeding. Meanwhile, the Islanders, 'Pines and Humiliation will go head-to-head-to-head in the B Pool round-robin series the following Saturday, March 17 to determine their seeding in the semis. The semi finals are scheduled for Saturday, March 24 (please see Schedule above for specific game times). In order to remain eligible to qualify for the UUHA Championship Game, teams must finish 1st or 2nd in their round-robin series. Teams finishing 3rd are still eligible for a Bronze Medal Game berth in the UUHA Playoff Finals which are scheduled for Saturday, March 31. All UUHA Playoff games take place at Upper Canada College.
