Mid-West Recap for Jan. 22-26

Happy Thursday everyone.  It’s almost Fri, which is always a glorious thing.

Let’s recap the busy week that was in the Mid-West.

 

Thursday, January 22

Brantford 99er’s hosted Cambridge Winter Hawks.  The game was all Hawks as they shut out the young 99er’s on home ice, 9-0.  Story from Brantford Expositor.

99er’s Shellacked by Hawks

It was a night to forget on Thursday at the Wayne Gretzky Sports Centre for the Brantford 99ers.

Hosting the Cambridge Winter Hawks, Brantford suffered an 9-0 Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League Mid-Western Conference loss.

Cambridge improves to 19-16-5 on the season, while Brantford falls to 8-28-1.

The 99ers were coming off a big win Saturday when they defeated Cambridge 4-3 on the road. Trailing 3-2 after 40 minutes, Brantford scored a rare come-from-behind win.

“We just rallied together real good as a group,” 99ers head coach Scott Rex said of last Saturday’s victory.

“We worked to the level we need to work at. That game in Cambridge last week that might have been the first game we’ve ever come from behind like that. That one felt good.”

Unfortunately for the 99ers, they were never in Thursday’s game. Cambridge scored four first-period goals – despite being outshot 15-11 by Brantford – on their way to the win.

Brantford’s two regular netminders – Jack Moylan and Mathieu Kingsley – have been working through injuries, which has allowed Simcoe Storm junior C goalie Nathan Mackinnon to play.

Kingsley returned on Thursday but he backed up Mackinnon. Although Mackinnon has played well, he wasn’t as sharp in his most recent outing, getting pulled at 14:20 of the first period after allowing three goals.

He did return midway through the second to replace Kingsley, who fared about as well as his partner.

“It’s like he’s rising to the occasion,” Rex said of MacKinnon’s play prior to Thursday.

“He’s a good guy. Guys have rallied around him. I think the guys play tighter around him.”

With the 99ers short-staffed recently at forward and defence, a lot of times the team has employed either affiliate players from Simcoe or Brantford Minor Hockey Association midget players. Having those players in the lineup has given Rex a chance to see who can do what.

“Every game is an audition for everybody,” said Rex, noting that Ray Munro has done well when called upon.

“Some of them have shown well. It’s a small sample size. It’s easy to get jacked up for one or two games but they have to do it over a longer period.”

Over the long-term, the 99ers will also have to search for offence. With leading scorer Gus Ford traded to Chatham, Rex is looking for different players to step up.

“We’re offensively challenged without him,” said Rex while praising Ford for his play with the 99ers.

“Guys have to step up. We have three lines who have to do something by committee. We (also) need more from the back.”

Rex, who did note that Keegan Alvestad and Nathan Ferris have done well on defence, was able to celebrate something else on Saturday – a franchise record for wins in a season.

“It was something we were shooting for,” said the coach of his team’s eighth win. “We have to improve every year but it hasn’t changed. It’s still game-to-game for us.”

The immediate focus for the 99ers is catching the Brampton Bombers (7-24-6) for the eighth and final playoff spot in the MWC.

“We have to look after our end of things,” said Rex, who was also happy to have injured defenceman David Storey back in the lineup on Thursday.

“We can’t get caught up. Brampton is going to do whatever they do. On nights like (Thursday), we have to throw it all on the line.”

Brantford is back in action on Tuesday when it travels to Kitchener to face the Dutchmen in a 7 p.m. game.

Friday, January 23

On Friday, Brampton Bombers hosted Waterloo Siskins.  This game was all Waterloo from the start as they pounded the Bombers 7-3.  Story from Pointstreak.

Mantz’s hat trick boosts Waterloo over Brampton, 7-3

Gary Mantz lifted the Waterloo Siskins to a 7-3 victory with a hat trick against the Brampton Bombers.

Mantz notched his first tally 4:39 into the second period. He then added goals at 8:54 into the second and at 10:53 into the third.

The Siskins excelled on the penalty kill, not giving up a single goal in nine chances. Brampton was unable to stop Waterloo from sending pucks towards the net, and the Siskins eventually piled up 36 shots on goal.

Waterloo also got goals from Chase Campbell, Evan Kearns with 2 and Christian Mroczkowski.

The Bombers found themselves short handed often, totaling 30 penalty minutes and allowing seven power plays.

Brampton was helped by Carmine Vietri, who tallied two goals. Vietri scored the first of his two goals at 2:16 into the second period to make the score 1-1. Vietri’s next tally made the score 4-2 Waterloo with 3:00 left in the second period. Brampton also got points from Kevin Bray, who also registered one goal and one assist.

Bailey DeGasperis rejected 23 shots on goal for Waterloo. Jake Lawr recorded 29 saves for the Bombers.

 

Listowel Cyclones hosted Guelph Hurricanes.  It was a close back-and-forth game with the Cyclones coming out victorious with a 7-6 win.  Story from Guelph Mercury.

Guelph Hurricanes surrender late power-play goals in loss to Listowel

http://www.guelphmercury.com/sports-story/5273892-guelph-hurricanes-surrender-late-power-play-goals-in-loss-to-listowel/

LISTOWEL – The Listowel Cyclones scored a pair of power-play goals 86 seconds apart with less than nine minutes to go in the third period to edge the Guelph Hurricanes 7-6 in Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League play Friday night at the Listowel arena.

The teams were tied 3-3 at the end of the first period and 5-5 after the second.

Listowel outshot the Canes 41-34 and went 3-for-6 on their power play while the Canes went 2-for-4 on their power play.

Matt Nightingale scored twice for the Canes while single goals were netted by Peyton Backus, Ryan Migliaccio, Brody Milne and Beau Browning. Patrick Kudla assisted on three of the goals while Cameron Stokes, Alex Remedios, Milne, Migliaccio, Brooker Muir, Backus, Craig Martini and Jordan Hatzinger each had one assist.

Chayse Herrfort and Brady Anderson scored twice apiece for Listowel while Garrett James, Ben VanOotegham and Ray McFalls also scored.

Jason DaSilva took the loss for the Canes while Ryan Hergott was the winning goalie for Listowel.

Guelph is fifth in the Midwestern Conference at 22-14-3 while Listowel is seventh at 16-21-1.

The Canes are to host the fourth-place Stratford Cullitons (23-13-4) Saturday at the Sleeman Centre. Game time is 7:30 p.m.

 

The last game on Friday was Stratford Cullitons hosting Kitchener Dutchmen.  The Dutchmen escaped the Allman with a 7-4 win.  Story from Stratford Beacon Herald.

Dutchmen take it to Cullitons

By Steve Rice, Stratford Beacon Herald

http://www.stratfordbeaconherald.com/2015/01/24/dutchmen-take-it-to-cullitons

For years, visiting teams have come to the Allman Arena with a strategy to simply try to weather the storm in the opening 10 to 20 minutes against the Stratford Cullitons.

Friday night the Kitchener Dutchmen brought the storm to the home team.

Rookie Jeremy Kuehn scored three goals in the opening 17 minutes for a 3-0 lead, and finished with four goals in total, and the Dutchmen took it to the Cullitons 7-4 in the GOJHL Midwestern Conference game.

The Dutchmen improved to 28-8-2 for 58 points, two points back of the first-place Elmira Sugar Kings.

The Cullitons, 1-3-1 in their last five games — including two losses to Kitchener — slipped to 23-13-4 and remained three points up on fifth-place Guelph Hurricanes, who they visit Saturday night.

“We came out in the first period, we dictated the pace and survived that first 10, 12 minutes and got up and it benefitted us,” Dutchmen coach Todd Hoffman said. “Stratford’s a very good team, they’re very well coached, and if we let them dictate the pace, we get following them around and we get out of position.

“It doesn’t matter if it’s Cambridge, Stratford or Elmira, if we dictate the pace we’re going to win hockey games. And that’s exactly what happened tonight.”

But Hoffman acknowledged there’s extra emphasis on games against Stratford, which knocked out Kitchener in the semifinals last year after the Dutchmen had finished first in the regular season. With Friday’s win, the Dutchmen finished 5-1 against the Cullitons in the season series.

“It’s basically payback for last year,” Hoffman said. “We were the better team last year and they came in and they beat us in that playoff series. Our guys, they hold that grudge every time we come and play them.

“They’re a good hockey team and if we don’t come to play, the outcome’s not going to be what we want to see. But come playoffs, we’d love to see them.”

Kuehn, 17, had scored just three Junior B goals prior to his natural hattrick Friday night — the first hattrick of his hockey career.

The Kitchener native started last season with a pinched nerve in his neck and wasn’t signed by the Jr. Rangers AAA organization where he’d played as a minor midget.

So after being cleared to play he joined the Huron-Perth Lakers midgets for the final nine regular-season games, collecting seven goals and 14 points, then adding three goals and six points in eight playoff games.

“I’ve played in this rink a few times — it definitely helped. The crowd really gets you revved up,” said Kuehn, who as a member of the Lakers watched some of the Stratford-Kitchener playoff series last year and was well aware of the rivalry.

“I came into the game thinking I probably wasn’t going to score and ended up getting four. I got lucky, and my linemates helped me out. It was a great night. Shut the other team’s fans up, and we got the win, too. It was awesome.”

The versatile forward was inserted onto the third line at centre due to a teammate’s illness.

“He’s been a great player for us right from day one,” Hoffman said of Kuehn. “He works hard and he’s a guy I can put in the middle, on the wing left or right.

“Our third-line centreman was out of the lineup with the flu tonight so I put him in and he shot the puck, and everything he shot seemed to go in the net. It’s great for him.”

Rookie defenceman Austin Huizenga officially scored his first goal as a Culliton late in the first period to cut the lead to 3-1.

After Kuehn made it 4-1 midway through the second period the Cullitons rallied back to 4-3 as Mitch Brooks scored on a powerplay off a nice pass from Shane O’Brien, and just over a minute later Trevor Sauder scored a shorthanded wraparound goal.

Kitchener killed off a Stratford powerplay to start the third period, then went ahead 5-3 on defenceman Harrison Domagala’s point shot.

Again the Cullitons came back, this time on a goal by Jared Nash with over eight minutes to go. But shortly after that goal, Stratford defenceman Matthieu Bourbeau was assessed a double minor for spearing. Keegan Calder scored for the Dutchmen on the second minor for a 6-4 lead.

Adam Kawalec added an empty-net goal.

“We didn’t get off to the start obviously we wanted to and they set the tone and capitalized on their scoring chances,” said Cullitons’ assistant coach Tyler Canal. “Giving up five 5-on-5 goals is not the way we want to play hockey, and when that happens you’re scrambling way too much and that’s the type of outcome you can expect.

“That’s definitely something we’ll need to address.”

Jackson McIntosh made 39 saves for the win while Nick Caldwell took the loss, stopping 20 of 26 shots.

NOTES: The Dutchmen scored 28 goals in their five wins against Stratford — close to one-quarter of the 115 total goals the Cullitons have given up in 40 games.

“We’re not a very big club, but we don’t back down and we’re quick,” Hoffman said of the Dutchmen, which is a pretty accurate description.

Moments after Kuehn’s second goal, Jordan DeLaurier stole the puck and went in all alone on the Stratford net but was stopped by Caldwell.

Next home game is next Friday night against the Listowel Cyclones.

Cambridge hosted Listowel and blanked them in front of their home fans 5-0.  Story from Cambridge Times.

Machalski throws up wall on weekend

By Bill Doucet

http://www.cambridgetimes.ca/sports-story/5276130-machalski-throws-up-wall-on-weekend/

CAMBRIDGE – It looks like Lucas Machalski is heating up for the stretch drive, and that could be bad news for the Midwestern Conference.

The conference’s leader in goals against average and save percentage improved his numbers by posting back-to-back shutouts, as the Cambridge Winter Hawks downed the Brantford 99ers 9-0 last Thursday (Jan. 22) and the Listowel Cyclones 5-0 on Saturday at the Galt Arena Gardens.

Machalski has posted three shutouts this month and his current shutout streak sits at 126 minutes, 37 seconds.

“The team played great and only allowed about 25 shots each game,” said Machalski, deflecting the credit.

“Our defensive effort has been improving each and every game since the break, and we just want to keep winning games. We want to get up by a couple goals so if we do ever make a mistake, we don’t collapse like we did at the beginning of the year.”

Machalski continued on praising the 18 skaters in front of him, saying that the wins don’t just fall on his play.

“It only stems so far,” he said.

“My d saved me a couple of times (against Listowel) and even in Brantford they blocked a lot of key shots. Even the forwards got back with great backchecking, so it’s not just my effort, it’s the whole team. The process has been coming along quite well leading to playoffs.”

Scoring goals – 14 to be exact in two games – was also a welcome sight for Machalski, as the Winter Hawks have been snakebitten as of late in close games. This time, both games were no contest, as the Winter Hawks MMA line of Mitch Atkins, Max Lamontagne and Alex Bottigoni combined for nine points against Listowel.

“The hockey gods were on our side this weekend; it’s kind of nice. We got lots of good bounces going our way. We couldn’t ask for much more,” Machalski said.

And it was Lamontagne and Bottigoni starting things off in the first period, with Lamontagne finding room inside the far post and Bottigoni cleaning up a mess in the slot.

The Winter Hawks continued their offence in the second period, as Lamontagne found Atkins alone at the side of the crease and he ripped a one-timer past Tyler Fassl for his 19th goal of the season, 13th as a Winter Hawk.

Aaron Nunes and Bottigoni added some further insurance in the third period.

Head coach Steve Hodson said getting four points against two teams below them in the standings was just what was needed out of his team.

“We righted a wrong from last weekend,” Hodson said.

“We had a tough week of practice in terms of expectations and I reminded these guys that we’re in the middle of January now. The times of ebbs and flows and letdowns is gone. We need to start imposing our will and building towards a playoff run.”

The Winter Hawks now find themselves just two points back of Guelph again – Guelph has a game in hand – and seven back of Stratford with eight games remaining. Getting home ice advantage will be difficult, though the Winter Hawks do have back-to-back with the Cullitons in two weeks.

“(Home ice advantage) is within our reach, but our focus really right now is about building towards the playoffs. Where we end up in the standings at this point in time is almost inconsequential; you have to beat everybody to hoist the Cherrey Cup,” Hodson said.

“We’re going to take it one game at a time and try and get better over the course of our last (eight) games.”

Against Brantford, Jordan Chard had a pair of goals, while Jake Moggy, Riley MacRae, Bottigoni, Zach Magwood, Lamontagne, Kyle Liu and Alex Hulford had one each.

The Winter Hawks are back in action for a rare home date on Thursday against the Waterloo Siskins at 7 p.m., before a home-and-home with Elmira on Saturday at 7 p.m. at the Galt Arena Gardens, and Sunday at 2 p.m. in Elmira.

 

Also on Sat., Guelph hosted Stratford.  The Cullitons edged the Canes 3-2.  Story from Guelph Mercury.

Another slow start costly for Guelph Hurricanes

By Rob Massey

http://www.guelphmercury.com/sports-story/5274659-another-slow-start-costly-for-guelph-hurricanes/

GUELPH – After getting a bit of breathing space between themselves and the Cambridge Winter Hawks, the Guelph Hurricanes gave it back with a pair of losses on the weekend.

After their customary slow start, the Canes were edged 3-2 by the Stratford Cullitons in Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League play at the Sleeman Centre Saturday night after they scored their two goals in the final 12 minutes of the game. That setback followed a 7-6 loss to the Listowel Cyclones Friday night at Listowel.

“We came in here to pass these guys in the standings, but that didn’t happen,” Canes forward Ryan Migliaccio said. “Now we’re going to try to get all the points until the end of the (regular season) and if that happens, we’ll be ahead of these guys in the standings and get home-ice advantage.”

“We’re going through a transition right now where we’re fighting one thing to make sure we’re better at something else,” Canes head coach Peter Crosby said. “It was a better performance than (Friday) night. I thought our performance (Friday) night was more individualistic than it was team-centered. We’re going through a point, but I guess it’s part of the process. We’ve got three new guys in that room trying to find their way and lines are getting juggled.”

Since the Christmas break, the Canes have added forwards Brody Milne and Stefano Pezzetta and defenceman Beau Browning to the roster.

The Canes entered the weekend in fifth place in the Midwestern Conference, six points ahead of Cambridge. The Winter Hawks were two points behind at the end of the weekend.

Saturday, Stratford scored twice in the opening four minutes to put the Canes behind for good.

“The first period, the first five or 10 minutes, we were not a good team,” Crosby said. “We’ve got to find our way, that’s for sure, and it’s got to be 60 minutes. The first five minutes killed us.”

The slow starts have plagued the Canes most of the season.

“We’ve got to switch up what we’re doing before the games,” Migliaccio said. “It’s hard to tell we’ve been talking about it so long now, but it’s something that just has to change.”

“They’re painful,” Crosby said. “It’s definitely an area and we’re talking about it. How do you get ready for (the game)? What do you do? Is it the pre-game warm-up? Is it your mental focus going into it? What is it? Is it now in our mindset that we have these tough starts and we have to play from behind? If I look at the positive, they’re not quitting. They are coming from behind.”

After a scoreless second period, the Cullitons added a power-play goal in the opening minute of the third. The Canes closed the gap on goals by new additions Milne and Pezzetta later in the third, Pezzetta’s goal closing the margin to a single goal with two and a half minutes to play.

Pezzetta, Ryan Migliaccio, Brooker Muir and Lawrence Pagnan each had an assist.

Justin Graham, Zach Van Louwe and Trevor Sauder scored for Stratford.

The Cullitons outshot the Canes 34-29 and went 1-for-3 on their power play while the Guelph side went 1-for-6.

Jeremie Lintner was tagged with the loss in net for the Canes while Nick Redman picked up the win for Stratford.

With the win, the Cullitons move five points ahead of the Canes, but Guelph has a game in hand.

“We can play with these teams and beat these teams,” Crosby said. “Now we have to put together a 60-minute effort. That’s the part that’s frustrating.”

The Canes have nine games to go in their regular season including a pair against the basement-dwelling Brantford 99’ers (8-28-1). They’re to play at Brantford Thursday and at the Sleeman Centre Saturday. Game time for both matches is 7:30 p.m.

Sunday, January 24

On Sun. afternoon, Kitchener hosted Waterloo in the afternoon.  It was a close game, but the Dutchmen squeaked out a 4-3 win.

In the first period, Kitchener took a 2-0 lead with goals from Jeremy Kuehn and Philip Moser, Moser’s being on the power play with Luke Gazzola serving a 2+10 min. head checking penalty.

The Siskins would get on the board 46 seconds into the 2nd period with a goal from Captain Christian Mroczkowski.  In the 3rd period, the Siskins would tie the game with a power play goal from Matt Romund and Michael Romund would give them a 3-2 lead with 9 min. left to play.

At 14:54 and 18:08, Kitchener’s Connor Cole tied the game and potted the game winner to earn the Dutchmen the 4-3 win.

Waterloo’s Evgeny Kiselev suffered the loss, stopping 32 of 36 shots, while Kitchener’s Jackson McIntosh earned the win stopping 31 of 34 shots.

 

Also on Sun., Elmira Sugar Kings hosted Brampton and the Bombers were bombed yet again 9-0.  Story from Brampton Guardian.

Kings crown Bombers

By Robin Inscoe

http://www.bramptonguardian.com/sports-story/5276027-kings-crown-bombers/

ELMIRA – The Brampton BECC Construction Jr. B Bombers took one on the chin Sunday (Jan. 25) as the league-leading Elmira Sugar Kings flexed their muscles in a 9-0 rout in Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League action.

It might have been the Sugar Kings sending the Bombers a message. If the playoffs began today, Elmira would match up against the eighth-seeded Brampton squad.

But the Bombers still have work to do if they want to reach the post-season. With 10 games remaining in the regular season, the Bombers hold a three-point edge over the Brantford 99ers for the final playoff spot, although Brantford has two games in hand. The two teams square off twice before the season ends.

In Brampton’s other game this week, they gave the visiting Waterloo Siskins a much tougher time at home on Friday (Jan. 23). The Bombers trailed 4-2 after 40 minutes before allowing Waterloo to blow things open with three straight third-period markers before Kevin Bray closed the gap from Lucas Goodman and Mitchell Byrne.

Carmine Vietri netted Brampton’s other two markers, with Goodman, Bray and Shawn Madden picking up assists.

Jake Laws faced 36 shots between the Brampton pipes while Bailey DeGasperis was tested 26 times in the Waterloo cage.

In Sunday’s loss in Elmira, Brampton netminder Shayne Dietl was peppered with 57 shots while the Bombers managed 23 at Andrew Lefebvre, who picked up his first shutout of the season for the Sugar Kings.

The Bombers host the second-seeded Kitchener Dutchmen at Victoria Park Arena on Friday (Jan. 30) at 7:30 p.m. They travel to Listowel on Sunday (Feb. 1) to take on the Cyclones.

 

Tuesday, January 26

On Tues., Kitchener hosted Brantford.  The Dutchmen defeated the 99er’s 3-1.  Story from Pointstreak.

Kitchener uses early goal to top Brantford, 3-1

The Kitchener Dutchmen took the lead against the Brantford 99ers in the first period and maintained it until the end of the game to secure a tight 3-1 victory.

A goal 5:44 into the first period by Mitchell Smith proved to be the game winner, and powered Kitchener to the victory.

The Dutchmen were led by goalie Harrison Pharoah, who finished with 25 saves while allowing one goal. Despite the solid performance, Pharoah will actually see his goals against average rise, as it stood at 1.0 entering the contest.

Kitchener was paced by Adam Kawalec, who grabbed one goal. Kawalec scored 16:50 into the first period to make the score 2-0 Kitchener.

The Dutchmen stifled Brantford’s power play, and did not give up a single goal while down a man.

Kitchener also got a goal from Keegan Calder.

The 99ers put up an impenetrable defensive front on the penalty kill, and did not allow Kitchener to score on any of its five power plays.

Brantford was led by Christian Polillo, who scored the team’s only goal. Polillo scored 17:27 into the first period to make the score 2-1 Kitchener.

The Dutchmen incurred eight minutes in penalty time with four minors. Nathan MacKinnon made 25 saves for the 99ers on 28 shots. Brantford incurred eight minutes in penalty time with four minors.
