Souldiers, Humiliation To Meet In UUHA Championship Final
Posted By: uuhadood
Sunday, March 25, 2012

TORONTO - This time next week the UUHA will have a new Champion and it will not be the Jokers Hockey Club. Despite finishing the 2011-12 regular season with the best record in the league, the reigning champs were defeated in a down-to-the-wire semi-final contest this past Saturday night, falling to the indefatigable Humiliation by an official score of 3-2.
 
Knotted 2-2 at the end of the 3rd period, the game was decided in a shoot-out pitting Jokers goaltenders Burke Lawrence against Humiliation minder Luke Smit. Earlier in the contest, Mike Thompson and Duncan Bunclark had tallied for the Humiliation, rallying back from a 1-0 deficit to take the lead midway through the final frame. Hunter Collins and Steve Levine were the Jokers' regulation-time goal scorers, the latter's tally tying up proceedings with just 3:41 remaining in the game.
 
Up first for the shootout was Humiliation forward Joe Cook, who was summarily solved by Lawrence. Fingered for the Jokers was Gary Rideout, who put his side ahead with a successful five-hole snipe on Smit. Next up was Humiliation veteran Mike Thompson who evened the score with a vertical wrister worthy of a wanted poster in Water Bottle City. Levine was then turned aside by the youthful Smit, opening the door for his squad to take control of the event. That's exactly what towering forward Mark Simmons did, finishing off a chattering stick-handling display with a twine-bulging roofer over Burke's right shoulder. The pressure was on Collins, who had opened the game's scoring a full 45-minutes earlier. Despite a respectable head-fake, Smit's stick found enough of Collins' rubber to deflect the shot up and over the net, sending a wave of celebration cascading over the Humiliation bench in the process.
 
Watching the proceedings from the other side of the plexiglass was approximately half the membership of the Wheatfield Souldiers, whose interest in the outcome of the Jokers-Humiliation game stemmed from their own one-goal victory over the Gas Station Islanders in the evening's previous semi-final contest. That game had witnessed the Souldiers take a 2-0 lead into the 3rd period on goals from likely contributors Eric Toth and Mike Harkness. GSI's Nick Purdon bisected that lead with just over five minutes remaining, before Souldiers forward Jon Weier restored a semblance of insurance at the 1:22 mark of the final frame with a five-hole marker on goalie Aaron Brophy. With the Islanders' net empty, though, Seth Singer converted a goal-mouth scramble to put his squad within a goal of a hemp twist - an outcome that seemed that much more likely when the Souldiers were assessed a minor with 42 seconds left on the clock. But despite being down two men to the empty-net bolstered Isles' side, the Golden Boys (buoyed by goaltender Sheldon Shurland) managed to hold off their opponents until the final buzzer, stamping their ticket to a third consecutive Championship Final berth in the process.
 
In the night's third and final game, the Parkdale Porcupines managed to break with the single-goal-differential trend that had informed every game of the 2012 UUHA Playoffs to that point, defeating the undermanned Parkdale Hockey Lads by a score of 7-3. Pines forward Ryan Urquhart demonstrated the extent to which he had shown up to play, potting the first three goals of the game (the first two less than a minute apart) for the first natural hatrick of the UUHA postseason. Todd Moffat and Geoff McPeek bolstered that effort with goals of their own, taking a 5-0 lead into the 2nd period. Lads winger Tommy Gough provided the thumb for the his side's dike early in the second, potting his first of two goals on the night with help from Fil Freitas and goaltender Tony Lanz, both of whom were credited with assists on the play. Tom Nesbitt also managed to get one past Porcupines goalie Dean Bentley, while Moffat and Joel Urquhart closed things out for the winning side.
 
With the victory the Porcupines earn a berth in this Saturday's Bronze Medal Game where they will take on the Gas Station Islanders. The puck drops on that match at 8:00 PM. The Lads, meanwhile, will go up against the Jokers in the 7:00 PM Consolation Final. The final game of the night (and the final game of the UUHA season, for that matter) will pit the Humiliation against the Wheatfield Souldiers at 9:00 PM for the chance to hoist the UUHA Championship Trophy. All games take place Saturday, March 31 at Upper Canada College.
