Last Laughs: Jokers Clinch Second UUHA Championship Title
Posted By: uuhadood
Sunday, March 24, 2013

 
 
TORONTO - The Jokers Hockey Club has won the 2013 UUHA Championship, defeating the Humiliation by a score of 4-2 this past Saturday, March 23 at Upper Canada College. The win represents the Jokers second UUHA Championship title coming two years after the team's successful 2011 UUHA Playoffs run.
 
The Jokers have appeared in the UUHA Championship Final three times in the past four years, while the  game was the second consecutive unsuccessful trip to the Final for the Humiliation.
 
Jokers sniper Steve Levine got his team on the board first (with assists to Gary Rideout and Mike Takacs), but not until the 1:13 mark of the 2nd period in the decidedly defensive contest. The Humiliations answered back shortly thereafter when Stephen Cribbin solved goaltender Burke Lawrence with an unassisted power-play tally. The score would not remain knotted for long, though, as Jokers forward Hunter Collins connected with flaxen-haired linemate Adrian Cavan to retake the lead just a minute-and-a-half later. Then, just over two minutes after that, Paul Irving's stick-on-the-ice sticktoitiveness would pay insurance dividends as he completed a scramble with Rideout and Levine to put the Funniest Team on Ice up by a pair.
 
The Humiliation's Paul Aucoin would draw his side back within one at the 4:55 mark of the 3rd frame, but despite some frenzied last-minute offensive action on the part of the Humiliation, the Jokers would hang on to win the night, sealing the deal with an empty-net marker (compliments of Takacs) with just five seconds on the clock.
 
Humiliation goaltender Chris Sanagan turned aside 13 of 16 shots on the evening while his counterpart Lawrence registered 14 saves on the same volume of rubber.
 
Prior to the Championship Final the Parkdale Lads claimed their first-ever Bronze finish in the UUHA Playoffs, defeating the Gas Station Islanders 5-2 in a clean but hard-fought back-and-forth affair. Lads forward Kevin Brauti opened the scoring at 12:18 (assisted by Kyle Welton) and in doing so registered what is believed to be the fastest goal in UUHA Playoffs history. GSI's regular-season scoring leader Dominic Chartier tied things up midway through the opening frame, completing a passing play from Steve Boyd and George Collins. Jason Abrams then teamed up with Terry Martins to put the Parkdale squad back on top early in the 2nd period. However, that lead was summarily dashed two minutes later when Collins solved spare goaltender Gary Emanuel, sending home a feed from Chartier (with Nick Purdon assisting, as well).
 
From that point on, though, the scoring touch would belong exclusively to the Lads - chiefly to Welton, who managed an unassisted go-ahead goal at the 6:05 mark on the 2nd, then deposited an insurance claim five minutes into the 3rd period (with Fernando Freitas and Marc Duquette assisting). Abrams would be fed by Mike Frolick to pick up his second of the match with a minute-and-a-half left in the game as the Lads skated to their best Playoffs finish in recent memory.
 
The 7:00 PM Consolation Final saw the Wheatfield Souldiers turn in their best effort of the last couple of months as the 2012 UUHA Champions handed an understaffed Parkdale Porcupines side a 4-0 defeat. Chuck Molgat scored two 1st period goals on consecutive shifts (a tap-down deflection of a Keven Magura point shot, then an unassisted wrister through a defensive screen) and Magura buried a slapshot from the high slot to put Burton's Boys up 3-0 going into the 2nd frame. Mike Harkness would make it 4-0 with two minutes left in the 3rd period (with Brad Sveistrup assisting) as goaltender Sheldon Shurland recorded his first shutout since Dec. 8, 2012.
 
UUHA action resumes in September with the commencement of 2013/14 Regular Season. Be sure to check back over the course of the months ahead for intermittent updates on league activity and other UUHA-related events.
