U SPORTS – Huskies upset Lions 1-0 in OT 

FREDERICTON (U SPORTS) – It only took only one minute and one second of extra time to decide  a winner between the sixth-ranked Saskatchewan Huskies and the  No.3 York Lions. That’s when Levi Cable (Hudson Bay, Sask.) put a shot past York goalie Mack Shields (Saskatoon, Sask.) to break the scoreless tie and send the Huskies into tomorrow’s semifinal at the 2017 U SPORTS Cavendish Farms University Cup. 

University Cup website: www.universitycup.ca

In last year’s University Cup, the Huskies endured two torturous overtime games before being eliminated. That thought was going through the mind of Huskies goalie Jordon Cooke (Leduc, Alta.A) as the teams went into OT 

“Last year in that third OT, it was terrible,” he said, of Saskatchewan’s  2-1 loss to StFX in the 2016 semifinal. “Losing in OT was one of the worst things ever. I sure didn’t want to end that way.”

Cooke faced 24 shots on goal for the win. 

Cable, who had four shots in the game, took the pass off the boards and broke in on the net. 

“It was a nice bounce, gave us a 2-on-1, I shot low glove and it trickled across the line,” said the second-year Business majaor. “I was excited, and I had thoughts of losing last year.”

Shields stopped 31 of the 32 shots in the loss.  

“We had a great season, and we don’t want to end this way,” said Shields, moments after the game. “It is hard right now. We have lots of young guys, and we want to be back here, next year, among the top eight teams in the country.”

Huskies coach Dave Adolph knew his team was going to see a tough York squad.. 

“There are absolutely no ‘gimmies’ in a tournament like this,” said Adolph. I was thinking of last year, and we seem to have trouble scoring in Atlantic Canada. We knew this was one of the stingiest teams in the AUS , and we are in the west, so we knew it was going to be a close one.”

York had 22 minutes in penalties in the game, while Saskatchewan had 18. 

Saskatchewan will face the winner of Thursday’s fourth quarter-final between StFX and McGill on Saturday at 4 p.m. AT, live on Sporstnet 360 and SN NOW, while York is eliminated from the tournament.

QF3: 2017 U SPORTS Cavendish Farms University Cup:

X-Men turn Redmen blue after 4-1 quarter-final win

FREDERICTON (U SPORTS) – The StFX X-Men used a balanced attack to cruise past the McGill Redmen, 4-1, in the final quarter-final of the 2017 U SPORTS Cavendish Farms University Cup men’s hockey championship in Fredericton, Thursday. Four different players found the net for the X-Men, who become the third Atlantic University Sport representative to qualify for the semifinal round.

The X-Men got on the board early, courtesy of Matt Needham’s marker at 2:27 of the first. They doubled their lead at 14:35 of the second on a goal by Michael Clarke.

The Redmen got back into the game at the 4:04 mark of the third period, on a power play goal by Christophe Lalonde, but the X-Men put the game away with two goals coming 52 seconds apart midway through the period. Mark Tremaine scored at 12:09 for StFX, and Holden Cook closed out the scoring at 13:01.

The game was a physical affair, with Sam Studnicka of the X-Men being ejected for kneeing late in the second period, and McGill’s Samuel Tremblay receiving an early shower for a check from behind at 4:49 of the third.

For McGill, veteran goalie Jacob Gervais-Chouinard made 31 saves on 35 shots to take the loss. Chase Marchand picked up the win for the X-Men, making 21 saves.

StFX outshot McGill 35-22. The Redmen went 1-for-6 on the power play, while StFX was 0-for-4. 

With the win, the X-Men will take on the Saskatchewan Huskies, who won Friday’s earlier quarter-final, in a national semifinal at 4 p.m. Atlantic Time Saturday. Acadia and the host UNB Varsity Reds will play in the other semi, set for a noon start.

SF 1: 2017 U SPORTS  Cavendish Farms University Cup:

UNB shuts out Axemen to advance to U Cup final

FREDERICTON (U SPORTS) – The UNB Varsity Reds scored in the first and second periods, added an empty-net goal late in the third, and Etienne Marcoux (Terrebonne, Que.) stopped all 20 shots fired at him, en route to a 3-0 victory over the Acadia Axemen in the first semifinal of the 2017 U SPORTS Cavendish Farms University Cup.  UNB will now play the winner of the second semifinal between StFXand Saskatchewan.  

University Cup website: www.universitycup.ca 

UNB opened the scoring on their very first shot on goal, at 4:28 of the first, when Chris Caissy (Campbellton, N.B.) drew defenders to his side of the net and slipped the puck to Stephen Anderson (Morell, P.E.I) who put it past Acadia goaltender Robert Steeves (Moncton, N.B.). 

“It was right there. I didn’t have to work too hard for that,” said Anderson after the game. “It got us right into the game, for sure.” 

Despite trailing, the Axemen defense kept UNB’s snipers to outside shots and had a 6-5 edge in shots in the opening frame.  

In the second period, Jordan Murray (Riverview, N.B.) added another for UNB on the power play off a point shot that found its way past Steeves. Up by two in the third, Chris Clapperton (Cap Espoir, Que.) got behind  a defender and rolled a nice pass to Phillipe Maillet (Terrebonne, Que.), who put it into an empty net with 1:13 left. UNB outshot Acadia 30–20. 

It was a feisty and spirited game between the two Atlantic University Sport rivals, plenty of hitting..  

UNB head coach Gardiner MacDougall was pleased with his team’s penalty kill, which kept Acadia to 0 for 6 on the power play.  

“The special teams were special,” he said. “We had to kill a five-minute penalty in the third, and when we did that, it gave us more confidence.” 

MacDougall also had high praise for his goaltender.  

“Marcoux simplified the game,” he said. He kept great body position all game, kept calm, and helped kill off those penalties.” 

 It will be the third year in a row that UNB has appeared in the gold medal game and MacDougall acknowledged it will  be a momentous occasion.  

“It is really special to get to the final four in the national competition,” MacDougall said. “It is a testament to the quality of the hockey in the AUS that these teams are there.” 

Acadia coach Darren Burns was pleased with his team’s effort, despite the loss.   

“In a tournament like this, you can never be flat, and we were the furthest thing from flat,” he said. “We played hard. It is a game of bounces-maybe (if)  one or two  go our way, and things are different. We competed every shift. UNB is a great team. We need to regroup and be ready for the bronze game tomorrow.”

SF 2: 2017 U SPORTS Cavendish Farms University Cup:
Second period six-pack has Huskies playing for gold

FREDERICTON (U SPORTS) – The  No.6 Saskatchewan Huskies shut out the No. 2 StFX X-Men 8-0 in the second semifinal game of the 2017 U SPORTS Cavendish Farms University Cup to advance to the national final on Sunday. Seven different players scored for the Huskies, who avenged last year’s 2-1 triple overtime loss in the semif to StFX.   

University Cup website: www.universitycup.ca 

The Huskies opened the scoring just under four and a half minutes in on a goal by Jesse Forsberg (Waldheim, Sask.). 

The onslaught began  in the second with a goal by Levi Cable (Hudson Bay, Sask.) at 1:54. Carson Stadnyk (Saskatoon, Sask.) would add to the lead at 4:29 , followed by Logan McVeigh (Kenaston, Sask.) at 10:17. Parker Thomas (Winnipeg, Man.) added another at 12:32, forcing the X-Men to pull starting goalie Chase Marchand (Halifax, N.S.), for Brandon Hope (Canton, Mich.).  

Still in the second, the Huskies addeda sixth tally , when Wyatt Johnson (Saskatoon, Sask.) scored at 18:38, before  Connor Cox’s (Lethbridge, Alta.)  buzzer-beater with just three seconds left.  

McVeigh would add  his second of the game and eighth for the Huskies at 4:50 of the third.

Shots were 30-26 in favour of the Huskies.  

Huskies goalie Jordon Cooke (Leduc, Alta.) recorded his second straight shutout after blanking the York Lions 1-0 in overtime in the quarter-finals on Friday night.   

“When you have guys laying down, blocking shots, that makes my job so much easier,” said Cooke, who was named the U SPORTS Goaltender of the Year at a ceremony Wednesday night.  

X-Men head coach Brad Peddle was succinct in his explanation of the outcome.

“Bizarre,” he said. “It’s a tough one to explain. First period, we are pretty even. In the second period, they capitalized on every chance we gave them. They brought tight checking and everything they threw at the net seemed to go in.”  

Saskatchewan coach Dave Adolph said he did not expect such a dominant performance.  

“We matched their intensity in the first, but did a lot of the right things in the second, like getting guys in the right spot, to make things click for us,” he said.  

StFX was 0 for 5 on the power play, while Saskatchewan went 2 for 6. 

The Huskies will now play  the host UNB Varsity Reds for gold  at 1:00 p.m. AT Sunday,  while StFX plays Acadia at 9:30 a.m. AT for bronze.   

Adolph, named  U SPORTS Coach of the Year, said it’s fitting that the teams that occupied  the top two spots in the U SPORTS rankings most of the year will now meet for all the marbles.

Bronze medal game: 2017 U SPORTS Cavendish Farms University Cup

Acadia lays the lumber to win bronze, 7-3 over StFX

 

FREDERICTON (U SPORTS) – Acadia forward Michael Clarke (Halifax, N.S.) had two goals in the first period, and Daniel Petterson (Toronto, Ont.) added two in the second to lead the Axemen to a 7-3 win over StFX, in the bronze medal game at the 2017 U SPORTS Cavendish Farms University Cup.

University Cup website: www.universitycup.ca

Acadia led 2-0 after 20 minutes, but Sam Studnicka (Windsor, Ont.) scored for the X-Men just 14 seconds into the second period tocut the deficit in half . Acadia would forge ahead though for good, scoring four more in the frame to put the game away. Boston Leier (Saskatoon, Sask.)  found the back of the net at 12:03, followed just 31 seconds later by Liam Maaskant (Clinton, Ont). Petterson  then tallied his first of two at 13:30, before Eric Locke’s (Toronto, Ont.) power play marker with 1:34 to go. Petterson, would add his second with 22 seconds to play in the frame.

Nathan Pancel (Ottawa, Ont.) StFX within three just under three and a half minutes into the third before Taylor Makin (Lethbridge, Alta.) rounded out the scoring for Acadia with a power play goal at 19:44

Acadia outshot StFX 34-29 in the contest.  

The game was the ninth meeting of the season between the two teams, with StFX winning both the season series 4-1 and the best-of-five AUS semifinal 3-0.  

Acadia head coach Darren Burns said the bronze medal was a nice way to finish the season, afater coming into the tournament seeded eighth. .  

“This shows the passion of our players,” he said. “Guys played with integrity and character. It was tough to turn around after yesterday’s loss, but we had to pick up and battle on, and we did.” 

On the other side, StFX head coach Brad Peddle said the turn-around was not an easy one for his players, after falling to Saskatchewan 8-0 in Saturday’s semifinal 

“It is a different experience playing at 9:30 Sunday morning. Twelve hours ago, we were just getting around to our post-game meal,” said Peddle.  

“It certainly wasn’t the start we wanted, and we talked about that between the first and second period, then we came out strong in the second. We got some bad bounces and they capitalized on our mistakes.”

Gold medal game: 2017 U SPORTS Cavendish Farms University Cup

Braes for impact: UNB senior scores four times to make Reds gold again

FREDERICTON (U SPORTS) – Cam Braes (Shawnigan Lake, B.C.) scored four goals and Mark Simpson (Fredericton, N.B.) added another as the UNB Varsity Reds defeated the Saskatchewan Huskies 5-3 to win the 2017 U SPORTS Cavendish Farms University Cup. It was the second straight national title for the Varsity Reds, and seventh in the school’s history.

University Cup website: www.universitycup.ca

Braes opened the scoring at  just over four minutes in, on a goal-mouth scramble.

Huskies forward Connor Gay (Saskatoon, Sask.) tied the game at 10:47 with a shot that bounced off the shoulder of UNB goalie Etienne Marcoux (Terrebonne, Que.) and popped into the net. Mark Simpson restored UNB’s lead when he shoveled the puck past Jordon Cooke (Leduc, Alta.) at 12:19.

In the second period, Braes  tallied his second at 3:17, on a nice tic-tac-toe passing play, then added another on the power play three minutes later  where he needed two shots on net from close range to beat Cooke.

Jordan Fransoo (North Battleford, Sask.) then brought the game within two for the Huskies  scoring at 8:25. 

In the third, Saskatchewan cut the deficit to  one, on Kohl Bauml’sSaskatoon, Sask..) marker at 15:43.

Braes then added his fourth of the game, with a back-door power play goal at 9:50. 

 The Varsity Reds outshot the Huskies 36-21 en route to the championship victory.

For the veteran Braes,  the game was his last in a UNB uniform. 

“I wanted to leave my legacy on UNB’s program. I’m leaving with three titles in five years, and  two university degrees,” he said. “Every one of the championships was important. The first one was special. I had never won anything big, so it was a good one. The second was important for the program and for us as players. And this time, we are the first UNB team to win championships back-to-back.” 

“I was lucky to play with great linemates tonight,” Braes added. “They knew when to give a great feed, and I was the beneficiary of their ability to get me the puck.” 

UNB head coach Gardiner MacDougall had a feeling things might go  Braes’ way in the championship game. 

“We are a confident group. The energy in the building really helped us,” he said. “We had the lead, gave up a goal, then got the lead back, and it was about then I thought the game was ours. We had a dominant second period. And to have that fifth goal, scored by a fifth-year guy, well, that was perfect.”

MacDougall, who is known to be an active recruiter, said he would likely be on the phone again tonight, building for the future. Three players finish wrapped up their careers  at UNB – Braes, team captain Cam Critchlow (Summerside, P.E.I.) and Rob Mignardi (Richmond Hill, Ont.).

All three captured their second straight national title with the Varsity Reds, who won the 2016 University Cup in Halifax.

Philippe Maillet, who had four assists in Sunday’s championship game, was named the Most Valuable Player of the University Cup. 

Marcoux was named top goaltender, while Acadia’s Geoff Schemitsch (Thornhill, Ont.) and Saskatchewan’s Jesse Forsberg (Waldheim, Sask.) were selected as  the top defencemen. 

Braes, Maillet and Saskatchewan’s Levi Cable (Hudson Bay, Sask.) were named the all-Star forwards.
