Cedar Park secures a pair of championship banners
2013-01-28

The 2013 Sudbury Playground Hockey League "Police Cup" featured a notable presence of Sudbury's finest throughout the weekend festivities. But with championship finals averaging less than two penalties a game, there was little need for extra policing.

These boys and girls were sticking to hockey, well within the rules.

A total of four gold medal encounters were staged last Sunday at the Gerry McCrory Countryside Sports Complex, with the Bantams kicking off the festivities at 11:00 a.m.

Nicholas Watkins scored his second goal of the game late in the second period, snapping a 1-1 tie and lifting Long Lake past the Riverdale Sharks 2-1. Brandon Durocher replied in a losing cause for the Sharks.

Brady Hembruff was flawless between the pipes with Atom Division bragging rights on the line, turning aside every shot he faced in leading the Cedar Park Red Wings past the Long Lake Atoms 3-0.

Justin Sivazlian, Bradley Blais and Kepler Salt handled the offense for the Red Wings. A four-goal performance from Braedan Pakkala allowed the Cedar Park crew to make it two straight banner-winning encounters, upending the Algonquin Hawks 5-2 in the Novice final.

Rafe Walsh rounded out the scoring parade for the Red Wings, while Oliver Taillefer and Dylan Assinewe replied in a losing cause for Algonquin. The tournament closed off the championship matchups in style, as Cedar Park and Lo-Ellen went to overtime to decide matters in the Peewee Division.

Joseph Sutton netted his second goal of the game, lifting the Lo-Ellen Lightning to a 4-3 win over the Red Wings. Robbie Geick and Domonik Kapustik also found the back of the net for coaches Patrick Tarini, Corey Houle and Jeff Poitras, while Tyler Bailey, with a pair, and Nathan Sivazlian answered for Cedar Park.

With more than 60 years of community service behind them, the Sudbury Playground Hockey League (SPHL) continues regular season action through January and February, with playoff and championship games slated for early March.
