GUELPH GRYPHONS 2

The Goof strategy seems to have run its course. Despite being outshot 33-11 after two periods, they were only down by 3-2. UNB scored twice in the final 2 minutes to make the scoreline more reflective of the game.

This game also fell within the unfortunate pattern in this tournament. Two mismatched teams facing each other with one trying to keep the numbers down and hoping for a break and an edge in the goaltending. At times this made me think of those games between the Harlem Gloibetrotters and Washington Generals. Next year maybe Coach Herbers could try the water-bucket-filled-with-confetti gag, Now, UQTR scored when down 3-0 so maybe they had another comeback in them. Well, no. Needing goals to salvage the season they managed only 5 shots in the 3rd period. One overlooked aspect of the Evil MOnkeys is their ability to hold their opponent to single-digit shots in the 3rd period.

Here is some food for thought: Alberta had more trouble with UBC than any other team so far.

Mar 15: Monkeys win!


GUELPH GRYPHONS 3

The return of the bronze medal match in U-Cup hockey! Can't say I watched. But I suppose this validates Guelph's Queen's Cup win over UQTR. I cannot imagine that UQTR had much left after their Saturday night massacre at the hands of the Monkeys.

In what could have been an epic battle between #1 and #2, the Evil Monkeys showed the Squirrels that there really was no debate. The shots were 24-9. The fact that UNB was able to score on every 3rd shot shows just what the potential achilles heel was for the Monkeys.

While I did enjoy the coverage that the tournament had, there was a lack of a really good game. The closest was Acadia's choke job against UQTR. Guelph rode the hot goaltender to a win, on the afternoon of the opening day. It would have been nice for more evenly matched games to have been televised. I would guess that many casual fans would have tuned out early. As usual, sports is always a crap-shoot.

Former Bisons Win Allan Cup

Another Allan Cup for Manitoba! The South East Prairie Thunder beat the Bentley Generals 2-0 in the Allan Cup final on April 18th in Jolly Newfoundland.

Three Manitoba Bisons assistant coaches (Riley Dudar, Steve Christie, and Tyler Dittmer) played and one more (Brad Purdie) coached the SEPT.

The line-up also featured many other ‪Bison grads, namely: Mark Friesen, Brandon Lockerby, Greg Beller, Blair MacAulay, Dustin Hughes, Nick Cowan, Del Cowan, and Rob Smith.

The game was quite good. All the teams were full of guys from university and/or professional teams. It was shown live on TSN and will likely be re-run.
