Beau's Boys Blank Humiliation, While Shootout Success Over Souldiers Launches Rockets to Final
Posted By: uuhadood
Sunday, March 31, 2019

 
TORONTO - The Beau's Beer Hack blanked the Humiliation 3-0, and the Brockton Rockets edged the Wheatfield Souldiers in a game-deciding shootout in Semi-final action this past Saturday night at Upper Canada College. Accordingly, the President's Cup-winning Hack, and the 2nd-place Rockets will vie for the UUHA Championship this coming Saturday, April 6. The Humiliation and Souldiers will face each other in the Bronze Medal game.
 
In other UUHA Playoffs action, the Gas Station Islanders mounted a 3rd-period comeback to defeat the Jokers in the Battle of D'Basement, advancing to next Saturday's Consolation Final in the process. The Isles will face the Parkdale Hockey Lads in that contest, scheduled for 7:00 pm at UCC.
 
Two scoreless periods set the stage for a tense 3rd frame as the 1st-place Hack played host to the Humiliation with a berth in the Championship Final on the line. Despite having finished the Regular Season near the bottom of the leader board, the Humiliation had yet to lose a game in the 2019 Playoffs, allowing just one goal in three games while scoring nine of their own. But it would be the Beau's Boys who struck first this time, as Chris Cacciottio combined with Dom Hanlon and Chris Barkley to solve goaltender Dan Hammerle just a minute into the period. Luis Durand converted an Aaron Foster set up six minutes later, doubling the lead for the Hack as the pressure mounted for the Humiliation to respond. A late empty-netter off the stick of Barkley sealed the deal for the two-time league Champions, who will now try for a third title this coming Saturday, April 6 at 9:00 pm.  
 
Another tight Semi-final would transpire after the first handshakes of the night, as the Brockton Rockets faced off against the Wheatfield Souldiers, the latter squad determined to defend their reign as current league Champions. Rockets stalwart Oliver Sutherns would get his side on the board first, though, corralling a high slot pass from Michael Wilcox and getting the puck just beyond the right skate of goaltender Sheldon Shurland and inside the goalpost. However, the 2nd frame would belong to the Souldiers with forward Scott Pettus claiming particular ownership and he combined with Mike Harkness and Brian Bentley to even the score at one a piece. The 3rd period solved nothing, so the do-or-die contest proceeded to penalty shots. The first two shooters for each side failed to bulge the twine, but Brockton's Bryan Eelhart made good on his side's third attempt, providing the margin that would see the Rockets advance to their first-ever Championship Final.       
 
The Wheatfield Souldiers and the Humiliation will face each other this coming Saturday in the Bronze Medal game. The puck drops on that contest at 8:00 pm.
 
In other UUHA action this past Saturday night, the Jokers and Gas Station Islanders took to the ice for the annual Battle of D'Basement, the winner of which would come back the following Saturday to take on the Parkdale Hockey Lads in the Consolation Final. Though offensively hamstrung thus far in the Playoffs, the Jokers had no problem finding the twine in this one, at least after the scoreless opening period was out of the way. Steve Levine solved goaltender Joseph Steinman with an unassisted power-play marker just over two minutes in, then Jeff Kassel combined with Levine to put the Funniest Team on Ice up by a pair before period's end. The 3rd frame would belong to the Gassers, though, as Dan Brock, Dom Chartier, and then Brock again, came back with three in a row and took the lead with just a minute-and-a-half remaining in the game. Already with two points on the night, Levine would spring into action again, though, this time finding Craig Hughson in front of the net for another power-play tally to tie things up with 25 seconds left on the clock. But as both benches began ruminating on which players would be called on for the shootout, Brock and Chartier teamed up once more, this time bringing Nick Purdon into the offensive mix who coaxed the puck into the Jokers' cage with a mere six seconds left to play. The goal would stand up as the game winner, as the Isles lived to skate another day while the Jokers packed up their figurative lockers for the season.

The 2019 UUHA Playoffs are set to wrap up this coming Saturday, April 6 at Upper Canada College. The Consolation Final goes at 7:00 pm followed by the Bronze Medal Game at 8:00 and the Championship Final at 9:00 pm. Live rink rock (featuring, among others, the Black Aces) will accompany the games and plenty of good seats remain available.
