TORONTO - The Big Stars are 2012 UUHA Super Cup Champions. The team edged the surging Toros by a single goal in a hard-fought Super Cup Championship Final, ultimately collecting the prize by a score of 2-1. Despite facing more shots than opposing goaltender Paul Zammit, Big Stars netminder Sheldon Shurland managed to hold off a late 3rd period barrage, collecting his second piece of hardware in as many weeks (Shurland recently backstopped the Wheatfield Souldiers to the 2012 UUHA league Championship). Toros forward Jimmy Murphy scored the lone goal for the losing side, while Kelly McCaig and Jason Pilling tallied for the Big Stars. Pilling's game-winner found the back of the Toros net with just 1:23 remaining in the game, negating what was shaping up as an inevitable period of sudden-death overtime. Team GM Keven Magura collected an assist on the Toros' goal, while Big Stars McCaig and Jeff Harper earned helpers for the winning side (Harper with an assist on both Big Stars goals). Shots on net were 23-12 in favour of the Toros.
