Long-Awaited Reopening Night Yields Three Tight Contests
Posted By: uuhadood
Sunday, October 24, 2021

 
TORONTO - The long-awaited return of the UUHA saw two draws and what developed into a close match between the Jokers and the Wheatfield Souldiers, with the latter team holding on for a 6-4 win at Upper Canada College this past Saturday night.
 
Veteran Brockton Rockets forward Michael Wilcox wasted little time getting his team on the scoreboard early, converting a pass from Dustin Harris to make it 1-0 just a couple minutes into the opening period. The goal was the first allowed in years by goaltender Chris Sanagan, who made the trip in from Guelph to join his old team for a rare reappearance between the pipes. Turns out it would be the only goal he'd allow in the game, too, as he turned aside the next 18 attempts off of opposing sticks. Rockets tender Jonathan Dickson would be equal to that task, though, allowing just one of the Humiliation's 27 shots to get past him, that one being off the tape of Jimmy Sioukas, who lit the lamp on the power-play with 12 seconds remaining on the clock. The late-game drama resulted in a 1-1 tie.
 
Not in the opening-night lineup for the Humiliation were any of their off-season acquisitions, including longtime Jokers' goaltender Marc Hickox, and brothers Fil and Fernando Freitas, who the Humiliation claimed off the waiver wire from the presently inactive Parkdale Hockey Lads. All three players are expected to debut with the Black Wizards soon.
 
One former Lad who was on the ice at UCC on Saturday night was the team's offensive stalwart Kyle Welton, who came to terms with the Wheatfield Souldiers just days before the season opener. Welton is expected to address some of the scoring the team lost during the extended pandemic shutdown, including three regulars (Brad Sveistrup, Scott Montgomery and Mike Wilk) who moved back home to Winnipeg. Keven Magura, Derek Domingos, Steve Harkness, Bob Lavery and goaltender Sheldon Shurland will not be playing for the Souldiers this season, either.
 
Welton's impact was almost immediate as he opened the scoring with an unassisted power-play tally near the end of the 1st period, finishing the game with three goals. Brian Bentley (2) and Eric Toth also scored for the winning side, while Gary Rideout Jr. (2), captain Ted Bisaillion and Mike Takacs got the Jokers' goals, all four of which were scored as part of a 3rd period comeback attempt.
 
Reopening night's final contest saw the Gas Station Islanders score the first and last goals of the match as they went up against the Beau's Beer Hack at 9:00 pm. Despite the bookend tallies, though, the Hack's Chris Barkley opened and closed the scoring for his side, too, combining with Gavin Patterson and brother Stefan Barkley for four lamp lighters on the night. Two other GSI tallies, off the sticks of Dominic Chartier (2) and Nick Purdon contributed to the penalty-free 4-4 draw.
 
UUHA action continues this coming Saturday, Oct. 30 with the Souldiers and GSI facing off (figuratively, at least, as faceoff remain verboten at UCC) at 7:00 pm, with the Rockets and Jokers looking for their first wins of the season an hour later. The late game has the Hack and Humiliation eyeing their first two-point night of the young season, as well.
