CHARLESWOOD HAWKS 6
FORT GARRY/FORT ROUGE TWINS 2

(Hawks win series 4-2.)
|> [Boxscore]
|> [Free Press story]


The Hawks got off to a fast start to dump the Twins and claim yet another Jack McKenzie Trophy. At the end of the 1st period the shot clock said 22-7 and scoreboard said 3-0, both in favour of the Charleswood Hawks. After that the Twins rallied a bit but the Hawks don't blow 3-0 leads.

With this title, the Hawks have now won 9 of the last 11 MMJHL championships.

HUMBOLDT BRONCOS 8

|> [Boxscore]
|> [CFRY 920AM 93.1FM]


The Derrieres were whupped it the opener of the final Anavet Cup. Since Humboldt is hosting the RBC Cup, both teams are assured of a spot in the nationals, thus taking a bit of an edge off of this series.

This is the last Anavet Cup because starting next year there will be one tournament between the winners of each western province and a host team, with the top two going to the RBC Cup. This series between the Manitoba and Saskatchewan champs started in 1971 (when the St. Boniface Saints beat the Weyburn Red Wings) at which time Canadian junior hockey was divided into "Major Junior" (or Tier I) and "Junior A" (or Tier II). The winners of Alberta and BC play for the Doyle Cup. Until 1990 the Anavet Cup winner would play the Doyle Cup winner for the Abbott Cup. After 1990 the RBC Cup (national) finals became a 5 team tournament instead of an east-west best-of-seven series. So the country was divided into four regions, and the Anavet and Doyle champs qualified without having to play the Abbott Cup series.

I find that to be a step backwards. The new tournament will be a 5 team round-robin followed by sudden-death semi-finals and a final. So instead of getting a best-of-seven series to gain a berth, one must win a single sudden-death game. I also know that the Anavet Cup has been a big money-maker for Junior "A" teams.

In the last five years the only Anavet Cups won by Saskatchewan have been the wins by Humboldt over Portage in 2008 and 2009. But the first time they met was in 1973. The Terriers beat the Ponies in game 5, which featured a 3rd period brawl, to take a 3-2 series lead. Humboldt chose to forfeit game 6 rather than face the Terriers once more. A 2008 story recalls that series.

The Terriers must have a serious aversion to banjo music. Either that or the toilet water in Humboldt makes them sick. Two decisive losses make it possible that they will lose an Anavet Cup to the Horsies for the 3rd time in 6 years.

The series shifts to Portage for games 3-5 on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights. Those games will be the last games in the province for the season.



OUT-OF-TOWN SCOREBOARD

Doyle Cup (Pacific Region)

Penticton Vees 1
Brooks Bandits 0

(Penticton leads series 2-0)
|> [Boxscore]


Although Humboldt stacked up for a run as host of the RBC Cup, Penticton has been the team in the headlines for their record-breaking season. After being whipped on home ice in game 1, one had to expect a rebound from Brooks and, to an extent, that happened.

Dudley Hewitt Cup (Central Region)

Soo Thunderbirds 5
Stouffville Spirit 3

(tournament final)
|> [Boxscore]


Stouffville outshot Soo 47-16. Holy crap! It is not often that a team from Northern Ontario qualifies for the RBC Cup, so good for the Soo. The OJHL had won 5 straight, and 8 of the last 9. Thunder Bay of the SIJHL won the other title.

Fred Page Cup (Eastern Region)

With just one berth to be confirmed, here's the schedule:

Wednesday, April 25th
Game 1 4:00 - CCHL vs Princeville Titan
Game 2 7:30 - Woodstock Slammers vs Kanata Stallions

Thursday, April 26th
Game 3 4:00 - Princeville Titan vs Woodstock Slammers

After a pair of blow-outs in Banjoland the Terriers have had two tight battles back at home. Game 5 goes Thursday at 7:30 in Portage and is on-line at CFRY. Either way it will be the last game in Manitoba this year.

Brooks took game 3 on Tuesday night on the road. But I bet Penticton was still feeling secure since games 3-7 were scheduled for their home ice. Odd scheduling, that. So the Vees got back on track in game 4. Game 5 goes Friday.

Soo Thunderbirds won the berth.

Could this be a miracle comeback? Well, taking two home games is one thing. But taking another pair in The Land of Inbreds is another. Especially after the results of last weekend. Still, with a berth in the RBC assured it does the confidence level plenty of good to beat the host team. Game 6 goes Saturday and is available for on-line listening at the CFRY link.

Here's a twist: There is no point for an OTL in this tournament. Nepean could really use that point. The round-robin wraps up on Friday and the semi-final and final go on the weekend.

I was listening on-line and what a win. The Terriers have now come back from down 3-0 and the Broncos are in full-fledged choke mode. The Terriers had leads of 3-1 and 4-3. After the teams combined for 8 goals in 60 minutes it took 33 minutes of overtime for another goal.

Game 7 goes Sunday night at 8:30 pm CDT.

Nepean avenged their OTL from earlier in the tournament to stake a decisive victory. I don't like to see a "host" team win a tournament, so I guess this is good. Nepean faces Woodstock on Sunday at 1:00 CDT.

So the miracle comeback fell one game short. Still, with both teams already qualified for the RBC Cup, this series had a bit of a pre-season feel to it. Portage clearly have confidence that they can win in the land of moonshine and kissin' cousins.

Of note, this was the final Anavet Cup. Next year begins a new format where all four western provinces play for one cup. The first Anavet Cup winner was the St. Boniface Saints, who will be moving to Virden next year.

The Soo win over Penticton was a shocker. The Vees outshot and outplayed Soo (45-15 SOG) but in the end a PP goal in the 3rd period decided it. Humboldt's win was decisive but the scoreboard may have flattered them a bit.

When you check on-line note that the tournament is in Humboldt and is on Central Standard Time, i.e. one hour behind.

(in overtime)

The Terriers won the afternoon game in almost 5 periods of hockey. That's tough when you have to play 4 games in 4 days. The Terriers outshot the Tweety Birds 72-44. But just ask Penticton about outshooting the Soo. Every time the Terriers scored, the Soo equalized.

The nightcap was a quick one, requiring just under 5 minutes of overtime. Penticton were the favourites, with the hosts having a home town chance at an upset. Thus far it looks like the field is extremely balanced.

Monday's game:
08:30 PM Woodstock v Portage

Portage led 1-0 after two periods but gave up 3 goals on 9 shots in the 3rd period.

Their win allows Penticton to advance to the semi-finals. They finish the round-robin at 2-2. Portage is tied with Woodstock and Soo at 1-2. One of those will be eliminated. Woodstock plays Soo in the early game. If Woodstock wins then Soo is out and Portage advances regardless. If Soo wins then Portage would have to beat Humboldt to eliminate Woodstock.

PORTAGE TERRIERS 3
HUMBOLDT BRONCOS 5

|> [Summary and Story]

The Terriers had two chances to qualify for the semi-finals. First, had Woodstock won the early game over Soo they would have guaranteed a berth by virtue of a win over Soo in the round-robin. That hope was dashed when Woodstock gave up 5 goals in the first 11 minutes. Second, they could beat Humboldt in the nightcap. After a 7 game loss in the Anavet final, the game had to be considered a toss-up.

As it happened, the game was quite tight. However, Humboldt was usually ahead. The Terriers trailed 3-2 entering the 3rd period and then outshot the Broncos 22-7. However, all the teams did was trade goals before an empty-netter put the Dogs out of their misery.

So yet another disappointing Anavet for the Terriers, hockey's answer to the Buffalo Bills.

Saturday Semi-Finals
3:00 CDT Woodstock v Humboldt
7:00 CDT Penticton v Soo

Sunday Final
6:30 CDT

Humboldt picked a fine time to lose for the first time. They outshot Woodstock 15-3 and outscored them 2-0 in the first period and appeared well on their way to the final. Then came the rally to force overtime. It only took 35 seconds for the Broncos to be eliminated.

Penticton has now won 3 straight and avenged an opening round loss to Soo. They were the favourites going into this.

Sunday's final is therefore Woodstock v Penticton at 6:30 CDT. There is free online viewing: http://hockeycanada.fasthockey.com/login.php
