Rockets Blast Jokers, Lads Maintain Top Spot Overall
Posted By: uuhadood

TORONTO -  Despite outshooting their opponent by a margin of 31-15, the Jokers Hockey Club was downed by the Brockton Rockets this past Saturday night by a score of 5-4. The win saw the Rockets improve to .500 on the season (5-5-3) while laying sole claim to 3rd place in the overall UUHA standings by virtue of penalty-free game bonus points. The loss saw the Jokers settle back into the .500 club as well (6-6-2) while maintaining 5th place in the standings.
 
Rockets defenceman James Neilson opened the scoring five minutes into the 1st period, potting a feed from Brett Linott to solve Jokers goaltender Burke Lawrence. However, Jokers points leader Gary Rideout Jr. replied just a minute later, taking a pass from Craig Hughson to beat Rockets' tender Nathan Cardon and tie proceedings at 1-1. Charlie Rishor put the Funniest Team on Ice ahead shortly thereafter (with Mike Takacs and Tim Progosh assisting), but with just 19 seconds remaining in the opening frame, David Dobson would hit reset by scoring his squad's second of the game. (Michael Wilcox collected the lone assist on that tally.)
 
The 2nd period saw another goal from Dobson and one from Rockets team mate Paul Shields, while Takacs registered his fifth of the campaign. (Linott, Ryan Oliphant and Dobson earned 2nd-period helpers for the Rockets, while Rishor and Derel Thompson set up the Jokers goal). Another Rockets tally early in the 3rd (Dan Kleiman from Shields and Jason Pilling) established a two-point lead for the Brockton Boys, and that's the way it stayed until Jokers sniper Steve Levine combined with Progosh to halve the spread with just a minute-and-a-half remaining. That, however, would represent the Jokers' last laugh on the night as the Rockets found the win column for the fifth time this season.
 
In other UUHA action, the Dufferin Groove and Beau's Beer Hack skated to a dramatic 3-3 tie in a game that saw the Hack go up by a pair before ceding the lead to three unanswered 3rd-period Groove goals, then knotting things up with just 49 seconds left on the clock. Wade Ivan, Aaron Foster and Chris Barkley tallied for the Hack, while Dave McBride (2) and Tim Freeman were responsible for Groove scoring. Assists were credited to Hackers Blake McDonald, Foster (2) and George Strumboulopoulous (2), as well as the Groove's Alex Lackovic, McBride and Todd Meaney. The tie saw the Groove skate away with a current exhibition record of 3-2-4, while the Hack (6-3-4) maintained possession of 2nd place in the UUHA standings just 2 points behind the league-leading Parkdale Hockey Lads.
 
Speaking of the Lads, the team rebounded from its previous game shutout loss to the Hack to post a 7-4 victory over the Wheatfield Souldiers on Saturday night and maintain a lock on 1st place overall in the UUHA standings. Lads spare Ian Seeton registered three goals while team scoring leader Kyle Welton potted a pair for a league-leading 18 goals and 23 points on the campaign. Ryan Kalinka and Fabian Ruzic also scored for the Lads. Souldiers scoring, meanwhile, was handled by Eric Toth, Steve Harkness, Jimmy Murphy and Ryan Turner. Lads assists were credited to Seeton, Welton, Mike Frolick, Ruzic, Dave Ball ((2), Fernando Freitas (2) and Kalinka, while Souldiers Steve Harkness, Keven Magura, Mike Harkness (2) and Jon Weier picked up helpers. Lads goaltender Luis Freitas earned his 5th win of the season turning aside 13 of 17 Souldiers shots.
 
With the win, and with just three games remaining in the Regular Season, the Lads (7-3-3) all but lock up home-ice status for the Playoffs, the advantage of which could figure prominently in terms of ceding and series tie-breaker scenarios. Meanwhile, the Souldiers (4-6-3) have their work cut out for them if they hope to finish among the top-four Regular Season squads.
 
UUHA action resumes next Saturday, Feb. 8 with the Humiliation (3-7-3) returning to action vs. Beau's Beer Hack at 7:00 PM, followed by the Porcupines (7-5-0) and Gas Station Islanders (2-7-3) at 8:00 PM. The Brockton Rockets will attempt to head north of .500 vs. the Dufferin Groove in the evening's 9:00 PM contest. All three of those games take place at Upper Canada College.
 
The afternoon of Sunday, Feb. 9, however, will see the UUHA take to the cozy confines of McCormick Arena for a special one-off 4:00 PM matinee exhibition match pitting the Parkdale Hockey Lads against a mixed squad of league rivals playing under the auspices of the UUHA All-Stars. (Roster spots may still be available, so if you want to play please email uuhadood@gmail.com). Spectators are very much encouraged, too.
