Rockets, Souldiers Post Big Wins While Jokers' Buzzer Beater Ties 1st-Place Hack
Posted By: uuhadood
Sunday, November 04, 2018

 
TORONTO - The Wheatfield Souldiers posted their first win of the season this past Saturday night at Upper Canada College, defeating the Gas Station Islanders 5-2 with a late trio of goals. Meanwhile the Brockton Rockets bettered the Humiliation 4-1, while the Jokers tallied with 2 seconds remaining in the game to pull even with the 1st-place Beau's Beer Hack.
 
Veteran Humiliation forward Luke Moretti combined with team captain Mike Thompson to spoil Brockton Rockets goaltender Jonathan Dickson's shutout attempt a mere 17 seconds from the final buzzer. The play benefitted from some unsolicited help from referee Peter Hall who, rather than drop the puck in the prescribed fashion, inexplicably tossed it to the Humiliation defence, setting things in motion towards the final goal. In terms of the game's outcome, though, the tally would be too little, too late for the Humiliation, as the squads shook hands on a 4-1 Rockets victory - the Brockton side's second win in a row. Dan Wilcox opened the scoring midway through the 1st period (assisted by Bryan Eelhart) and would pot another one (unassisted) early in the 3rd. Brockton's other two markers came off the sticks of Eelhart and Mario Vella.
 
The Humiliation, who have now lost five games in a row since opening the season with a win, will have a week off before returning to action on Nov. 17. The Rockets, meanwhile, will attempt to put a streak together next Saturday vs. the Islanders.
 
And it was the Islanders who scored first in their 8:00 pm contest vs. the struggling Wheatfield Souldiers this past Saturday night. Veteran Souldiers goaltender John Sutton was caught off guard by an unmarked Scott Adams, who converted a deftly placed net-front pass from Dominic Chartier to put the Isles up 1-0. But the reigning league Champions (who came into the game nursing a 0-4 record and having managed to score just a single goal throughout that drought) drew even just over a minute later, as Eric Toth solved goaltender Joe Steinman with a second attempt (Brad Sveistrup and Derek Domingos assisted on the play). The Isles went back on top at the 3:04 mark of the 2nd, when Chartier potted his 4th goal of the season - this one a shorthanded tally - unassisted.
 
Chartier and teammates were only able to enjoy the lead for a minute, though, as Souldiers captain Chuck Molgat responded with his first goal of the season, deflecting a hard pass from Domingos in behind the GSI tender. Rodney Merchant would score a similar goal two minutes later (with Sveistrup and Jon Weier assisting), that one ultimately standing up as the game-winner, as Sutton battened down the hatches from that point on. Domingos and Molgat would add a couple more for the Souldiers as the the team put an end to it's losing streak with a 5-3 decision. The Souldiers next see action this Saturday, Nov. 9 when they go up against the Jokers for the first time this season.
 
The Jokers first meeting of the campaign vs. the Beau's Beer Hack saw little scoring early on, as the two teams combined for a goal a piece throughout the first two frames. The Hack's Stefan Barkley bulged the twine behind Jokers second-string goalie Marc Hickox at the 9:09 mark of the 1st (assisted by Louis Durand), while Steve Levine solved spare goaltender John Sutton (on loan from the Souldiers) just over a minute later. Both sides' sticks came alive in the 3rd, however, as lamps at either end of the ice were alternately lit by Beau's Boys Chris Barkley and Durand (2), and Jokers Steve Chamberlain and Gary Rideout Jr. But with the clock ticking down on what appeared to be the Hack's third straight victory, Mike Takacs and Levine combined to find a net-front Craig Hughson who, despite wearing a pair of borrowed skates (on loan from the Souldiers) after one of his own broke mid-game, cajoled the puck over the goal line with just 2 seconds remaining, earning his side a tie that felt more like an overtime victory.
 
Had the score remained in favour of the Beau's Boys, the two-time league Champions would've enjoyed at least a week in sole possession of 1st place in the UUHA standings. Instead, the Hack would settle for a share of top spot, tied with the Parkdale Hockey Lads who they will meet for the first time of the season this coming Saturday, Nov. 9 at UCC.
