The Season Wrap-up Edition


SCOHA 2021/2022

Hey fellas, lots of things to cover this week so let’s get right to it!

 

 

It was an exciting season and we should all be proud of what we achieved. We finished the season in a difficult Covid year. Congratulations to the Junior Flyers, Intermediate Canadiens and Master's Bruins as our 2021/22 Champions.

 

There is only one last task left and that is the 2022 AGM (Annual General Meeting). It's every member's right to be there so come on out for a chance to ask questions to the executive board and participate in elections. Also, the championship jackets will be given out! Hope to see you there! June 13th 7pm Council Chamber at Old Stoney Creek City Hall (777 #8 Rd. at Jones Rd.) 

 

 

INTERMEDIATE DIVISION:

 

CANADIENS 5 BLACKHAWKS 1: The Blackhawks were “foiled” by the scoring prowess of Bill Foley (3 goals, 1 assist) and a heroic effort by Canadien’s goalkeeper Bruno (don’t call me Carlos even though he played a “smooth” game) Santanato. Hawks could’ve ran away with this one if Bruno didn’t make several acrobatic saves. When the dust cleared, the Habs skated off with the cup and left a Hawks team wondering what happened. Hawks GM Paul Mcgraw vows revenge and decided not to submit a protest due to a Habs player’s cat urinated gear being the reason why they lost.

 

 

MASTERS DIVISION:

 

I was sad that I missed Joe Venditti present the trophy to the Masters Champion Bruins.

 

Piks from all 3 finals will be posted for everyone to see. I first met Joe when I played Thursday shinny with a bunch of Scohaians. Great guy and the great stories from the past are legendary! Players urged Joe to come out to watch more games next year, see you then, Joe!

 

BRUINS 7 BLACKHAWKS 2: Thank you to Bruins GM Gord Bryce for some input on their game for me as I was busy playing my game on the other rink. “Right after our 3rd playoff game, we got a shock after the game as Joe “thank you very” Muchynski let us know that his season was over and he had to start treatment for cancer. Joe was our second-best player this year (next to Super Dave Armstrong) and is in better physical condition than anyone on our team. He also gives maximum effort in every game and we all felt he’s the hardest working player in SCOHA. We somehow managed to continue our unbeaten streak through the playoffs with a last-minute goal to tie our 4th game and scored a last-minute goal to win our semi final against the Redwings. We really wanted to win the championship not only for ourselves but especially for Joe. We were all thinking of Joe during our big game and he emailed the team on Sunday morning before the game with some encouragement.”

 

Joe left the bruins with one of his favourite quotes from Derek Jeter, “There may be people that have more talent than you, but there’s no excuse for anyone to work harder than you do….”

 

Bruin’s goalie J.J. Macneil stepped up his game throughout the playoffs and the Bruins defeated the surging Blackhawks 7-2. Gord let me know they went 92% on the penalty kill and 40% on the power play through the playoffs, pretty impressive! Dave Armstrong scored 2 and added 2 assists in the final and even drank beer from the cup after the game in the bar! Someone has the pic somewhere! Munish Baranowski, Rob “cheesy” Nacha, Bob “no panic” Tirnanic and Terry “hitman” Hughes also scored for the winners. The Blackhawks took 5 minor penalties during this one that didn’t help matters but must be congratulated for a great turnaround to their season, thanks to newcomer Mike Haslam and steady goalkeeping from Brian Deanes (although he missed the final game).

 

Special thanks to the SCOHA photographers who focused on capturing the moments of all three games. They have dropped the films at Fotomat so hopefully they get done soon.

 

With that, I wrap up another season doing this blog. Thanks to everyone for reading it every week and for the comments throughout the year, I have renewed my contract to keep doing this next year and might even throw in a mid-summer update on what our SCOHA heroes are up to. For those players who are going through health issues, we are all cheering you on as you get better so you can re-join us next season.

 

I can’t end without saying thank you to Terry and my fellow SCOHA executive committee who worked tirelessly to not only get this season off the ground during the pandemic issues but also through player injuries that plagued teams over the past year. With this appreciation from all the players, next year will be the best yet, already looking forward to it! A well-run organization that will only bring more new players on board.

 

Registration is now open on our website so take a few minutes and get signed up so we can bump up the number of teams for next season! Spread the word to others you want to play in our league!

 

Enjoy the summer, stay safe, we will see you all at the rink in September!

The Playoff Extravaganza Edition


SCOHA 2021/2022

What a scene it was all weekend as SCOHA-Nation ran wild on anyone that gave a care. Friday Night’s Junior Division Championship was nuttier than a squirrel turd as the game went into overtime before a winner was declared. Intermediate and Masters provided some additional drama as every player skated until their blades ran out. I feel sorry for the fans that thought the games would be on Cable 14 but unfortunately the games were blacked out in our region. Next time they won’t cheap out and buy some tickets.

 

JUNIOR DIVISION CHAMPIONSHIP

 

FLYERS 5 BRUINS 4 (OVERTIME) I couldn’t believe how many fans were in the stands for this one! What an atmosphere as the Flyers finished off a roller coaster ride of a season by winning the cup. To recap: 19 penalties called which caused a dramatic escalation of tension between the two clubs, a few game misconducts, 2 penalty shots, yes 2 penalty shots, and the person who won the $28.00 50/50 draw wasn’t around to claim their prize. Fans went home saying this was easily the craziest game they have ever witnessed. Fans paid for their seat but only needed the edge of it. Flyer’s captain Mike Haslam drove the bus and the horse, scoring 2 pivotal goals from long distance to help the cause. This guy lugged the mail a lot this season, a clear indication he will re-sign with the club in the off-season. Also hitting the game sheet was Kevin Wyatt, who scored the overtime winner, Ryan “orange” Popek and Dave “magic” Johnson. Bruins Dino LaPorta scored a hatty and drove the Bruins bus home after. Jeff Davis also replied for the B’s. Congrats to both teams for a great game that we won’t soon forget. Good luck with summer training and contract negotiations, see you next season! Personally, it was great following this division all year, great players on and off the ice.

The April Showers Edition


SCOHA 2021/2022

First of all, welcome to spring where no matter what jacket you pick, you’re wrong. I am recording this week’s blog from sick bay where this stomach virus combined with a chest cold makes me feel like I got ran over by the Lakeshore West Go-Train and I don’t mean big #9 on the Intermediate Flyers, Ryan Maybrey. Also, speaking of the Intermediate Flyers, let’s hope their team gets well soon as they battle some illnesses at such a pivotal time in the season.

The Post-St. Paddy’s Edition


SCOHA 2021/2022

Ok, someone spiked my 18th beer last Thursday as I pretended to be a true Irishman. I noticed a lot more players wandering up to the Lookout Lounge this past weekend, signs of everything re-opening just in time for SCOHA playoffs. Thanks to the few guys who came up to me to praise this weekly blog. I appreciate the unbridled enthusiasm for the writeup! Let’s get right to the action!

The St. Padddy’s Edition


SCOHA 2021/2022

Per Darren Dreger of TSN, he believes there are going to be many upsets this year as SCOHA approaches playoff-time. Masters Division regular season is wrapped up while the other 2 divisons are just playing things out before their 2nd season begins. Masters Jim Albanese is going to come back from Florida more dark than a forgotten grilled cheese on the stove. He is almost out of coconut oil so he will be asking anyone to put some Noxema on his back to help soothe the burn. Meanwhile, Bruins captain Gord Bryce is looking forward to Shen Yun returning to Hamilton Place but will not miss any games.

The Spring is Right Around the Corner Edition


SCOHA 2021/2022

See the standings lately? What in the name of Bill Derlago is going on? Masters enter their last weekend of regular season games and so much is still yet to be decided. 4 teams are separated by 2 measly points!  Bruins Gord Bryce already has his pencil and notepad out trying to predict the final standings and playoff scenarios. Junior Division still has 3 games left before playoffs so anything can happen there. The Oilers are only 1 point back of the B’s for first and don’t count out the Flyers who are planning a late season drive for first. Intermediate Division is still up for grabs. We all know things can go sideways at any time, especially in the playoffs! Anyways, let’s dissect last week’s action before it gets too late….

The Playoff Push Edition


SCOHA 2021/2022

Back from a week in the sun and sand, there’s a lot to catch up on. First off, let’s give a stick tap to John Annibale who is resting at home. This guy is a bulldog on the ice so we know he will get better soon and be back out there ready to go next season! John galvanizes the spirit of SCOHA hockey. I was talking to Gretz the other day and he even said he would love to have him on his team any day. Get well soon, fella!

The Valentine’s Edition


SCOHA 2021/2022

Love definitely wasn’t in the air last week as there were more whistles than Shania Twain walking by a construction site for crying out loud. Hopefully amazon delivers the new whistles before this weekend’s games… Anyways, playoffs are in sight as all teams continue to jostle for a better position in the standings. Home ice advantage is key as well as having the last change and the 8 fans screaming at the top of their lungs. Besides that, let’s recap some games..

The Convoy Edition


SCOHA 2021/2022

Well folks, the SCOHA Convoy rolled back into town this past weekend, minus the car horns from our many fans and supporters from coast to coast and around the globe. Did you catch any of the Junior games Friday night? Talk about some fast hockey! All 4 teams beat Usain Bolt by half an hour they were so fast. Anyways, while arena crews get the red lights replaced above the nets from all the scoring last week, let’s unmask the goings on before this report gets delayed another day…
