Jokers Win League Championship

TORONTO - The Jokers Hockey Club has captured the UUHA Championship, defeating the previous season's champions 6-4in the Gold Medal Final. The victory was particularly sweet for the Jokers, having lost last year's Gold Medal game to the Wheatfield Souldiers.
 
In other UUHA Playoff action, the Gas Station Islanders repeated as Bronze Medal winners, edging the Parkdale Lads 3-2 in the night's opening match. George Collins and Clint Davies were the lone goal scorers for GSI, with Collins opening the scoring just a minute into the game, and Davies potting both the second and game-winning goals for the victors. Dominic Chartier, Seth Singer, Nick Purdon and Dylan Hudecki collected assists over the course of the game.
 
Lads scoring was provided by Fil Freitas and Roger Santos, who both tallied as part of a 3rd period rally. David Egli, Mike Frolick and Fabian Ruzic garnered helpers on the plays.
 
In the night's main event it was the Jokers who got on the scoreboard first as league scoring leader Mike Takacs combined with Steve Chamberlain and Pete Windrem to capitalize on an early power play opportunity. By the end of the 1st period the Jokers were up 3-0 on goals by snipers Steve Levine and Gary Rideout. The 2nd period, however, belonged to the Souldiers, as the Golden Boys responded with four unanswered goals by Jimmy Murphy, Eric Toth, Mike Harkness and Rodney Merchant. Jokers forward Hunter Collins put a damper on that momentum, though, converting a feed from Tyler Stewart for a late goal to knot things up going into the third.
 
Levine struck again early in the final frame to put the Funniest Team on Ice ahead by one, which is how it remained for the next 13-minutes of hard-fought play. But with the Souldiers net empty for the extra attacker, Mike Takacs managed to convert a rebound on his own wide shot, giving his team the two goal margin and putting the game effectively out of reach with just 12 seconds left on the clock.
 
Despite the fact the Jokers finished the 2010-11 UUHA regular season in first place, the betting line on the Gold Medal Final wasn't necessarily stacked in the team's favour. Relegated to the Lower Bracket after the opening round of the playoffs, the Jokers came within a buzzer-beating goal of missing this year's Gold Medal game. Similarly, had the Humiliation capitalized on just one more of their numerous chances in their 2nd Round tie with the Jokers, the newly-crowned Champions would have been facing the unlikely prospect of missing the Medal Round altogether.
 
At any rate, those games, along with many other UUHA Playoff nail-biters witnessed over the past five weeks, speak to the increasing parity within the league, and the promise of plenty of exciting, competitive UUHA hockey action to come.
 
In keeping with league tradition, the 2011-12 UUHA Regular Season is expected to commence with this year's Champions facing an All-Star squad comprised of players from the other five league teams. Watch for the complete games schedule to be posted come late summer.
