TORONTO - Last season's Champions looked poised for a threepeat this past Saturday night as they dominated a short-benched Gas Station Islanders side 6-1 at Upper Canada College. The Jokers kicked off their new season with a 4-2 victory over the Wheatfield Souldiers, as well, while the Brockton Rockets balanced their record by blanking the Parkdale Porcupines 3-0.
The Hack's penalty-free win saw them claim 1st place in the overall league standings, while the Souldiers, Jokers, Rockets and Humiliation split 2nd-place honours four ways with a pair of points each.
UUHA action continues this Saturday, Sept. 24 with the Rockets and Souldiers breaking the ice at Maple Leaf Gardens - the first of seven games those two squads will play at the hallowed Carleton St. shrine this season (though not all against each other). That game goes at 6:00 pm. The Jokers and Porcupines, meanwhile, will face off against one another at 7:00 pm at Upper Canada College, followed by the Lads and Humiliation, and finally the Dufferin Groove and Gas Station Islanders at 9:00 pm.
