OWHA Provincial Champions

More gold, silver and bronze than Fort Knox, the GHWHL picks up five of six possible medals in the Senior category!!!

 

 

 

 

 

Congratulations to the St.Catharines Jets in their Senior AA Provincial Championship win! 

The Sr AA category was truly a battle with very close competition throughout the weekend.  The Jets lost one game in their preliminary round to London and ended up in a three way tie in their pool. They won their quarter final game against Ottawa by a score of 6-2, then continued to the semi finals where they beat Leaside 3-0.  In the final they faced the Toronto Crush.  The game was back and forth with each team finding the back of the net 5 times.  The game went to double overtime before the Jets made a great pass from their D zone up to a breaking forward who deked out the challenging goalie and tucked the puck away for the game winner winning the provincial gold.  

 

London Devilettes battle to win Bronze in the Senior AA division. The Devilletes battled through the qualifying round defeating our very own Jets and Sarnia Sting but falling to the Toronto Crush in their third game. London lost again against the Crush in the semis but were ultimately victorious in the Bronze game beating Toronto Leaside by a score of 4-1.

 

Congratulations to the Kitchener Lady Rangers in their Senior A Provincial Championship win! 

The Lady Rangers win gold again!!! The Lady Rangers fought their way through a twenty four team tournament defeating the Barrie Sharks; Brampton Canadettes; Oakville Hornets and the Barrie Sharks only losing to Westboro Ice Cats in round robin play. Kitchener met up with our very own Hamilton Hawks and defeated them in a tight 3-2 match sending the Hawks to the Bronze medal game. The Lady Rangers then faced league rival Brantford Ice Cats in the gold medal game.  The Ice Cats battled valiantly but fell to the Lady Rangers after a 3-2 win in double overtime!!! The Ice Cats were undefeated in the tournament through round robin play and the semis but couldn't steal it from the Lady Rangers.

 

The Hamilton Hawk’s road to success at Provincials began with a crucial win over a very skilled Aurora Panther’s team by a 2-1 score. It was followed by a hard fought 2-0 loss to the Ottawa Muskies. In the final round robin game, needing a big win, the Hawks came away with a resounding 7-0 win against Oshawa, which placed them in 1st place in their pod and allowed them to advance to play Confederation College. The Hawks were again successful, defeating Confederation 2-0 moving into the quarter finals. Playing for the 3rd time that day, the Hawks were again winners, defeating North York 3-1. Now into the semi finals, the Hawks faced a familiar team, the Kitchener Rangers and put forward a great effort but came up short losing 3-2.

 

The Hawks were now into the Bronze medal game facing a young skilled team from Westboro and came away with a well deserved 4-3 victory to secure the bronze medal!

Congratulations to the Hamilton Hawks in their 2-1 shoot-out win against the McMaster Marauders. The Hawks goaltending by Fiona Weaver and strong defensive play kept the Marauders off the scoreboard in regulation play. The Hawks fought off the Marauders strong attack in the third period but couldn't capitalize on their chances either. The overtime period also ended in a stalemate with only a shoot-out remaining to decide a winner. Hamilton's Jessica Mahler scored their first in the second round with Mac's Laura Gelowitz responding in the third. The Hawks' Heidi Fisher gave them the go ahead goal and the eventual winner.  The Hawks head to the Provincial finals in early April looking to extend their championship run.

2015 - 2016 Season Winners

The Horseshoe is Gold, Silver and Bronze and Finalist in 2016 OWHA Provincials

 

The GHWHL is proud to congratulate the St. Catharines Jets winning the Senior AA Gold Medal at the 2016 OWHA Provincial Tournament!  The Jets opened the tournament vs Leaside with a 1-1 tie then moving on to defeat Sarnia 1-0.  The Jets knocked off Sarnia again 4-0 in a pool tie breaker to advance to the semi final against Toronto Crush winning 3-2.  The Jets next opponent was our very own London Devilettes. The game momentum shifted back and forth and the Jets were up 2 -1 until the Devilettes tied the game with 1:11 left in the third. Both teams fought hard and when it appeared the game was going into OT the Jets capitalized with 29 seconds left on the clock. The Jets claimed victory and added to their pile of precious metals. 

 

 


We also congratulate the Hamilton Ice Hawks who won the Bronze Medal in the Senior A category.  The Ice Hawks faced another one of our own, the Brantford Ice Cats. Both teams fought their way through a twenty team pool finally meeting in a epic battle for the bronze. It was a hard fought game that traded leads several times and could have gone either way. Regulation time ended in a 3-3  tie and the battle began once again. Not one, not two, but it took a triple overtime goal by the Ice Hawks to defeat the Ice Cats - what a finish! Praise must also be given to Brantford for their sportsmanship! One of the Ice Hawks player's skate blade broke in the second period of the game and the Ice Cats loaned her a pair of skates.  Of course it was that Ice Hawks player who netted the over time winner. Great Sportsmanship all the way around!!!
 

 

GHWHL 2015 - 2016 Season Champions

 

 

 

Congratulations to the Hamilton Ice Hawks for their gold medal victory to take the GHWHL Championship. The Ice Hawks faced the London Devilettes a few days after their medal games at the OWHA Provincial Tournament. The Ice Hawks took an early 2-0 lead in the first period with goals from Kilgour and Bundy. They added to their total in the second period with another goal from Bundy to go ahead 3-0. The Devilettes came back hard in the tird period but could only answer with one goal for a 3-1 final. Ice Hawks goalie Clause stood on her head in the third to keep the score at 3-1. Another great season finish!

 


Congratulations to the St. Catharines Jets winning the Bronze medal in the GHWHL medal round final. The Jets chipped their way through this year's round robin playoff eventually meeting the resilient Hamilton Hawks. The Jets struck first with 10 seconds left in the first period and never looked back. The game was much closer than the 5-2 final as their final goal was scored on an empty net as Hamilton pushed for two to tie. Great season for both teams!

The Horseshoe is Gold and Silver in 2015 OWHA Provincials


Golden Horseshoe Women's Hockey League teams take gold and silver medals in the 2015 Ontario Women's Hockey League Provincials.



 

April is Provincial Championship time and the London Devilettes set out on their quest to defend their gold medal.  Cruising past the Ottawa Ice Cats with an 11-1 victory and defeating the Toronto Crush 4-2 in very hard, fast game. The evening match up saw London face league rival St.Catharine's Jets, these two teams had faced each other a handful of times with their previous meeting coming in their league finals. London cruised to a comfortable 6-1 victory earning themselves 1st in their pool and a spot in the Semi-Finals. Sunday is medal day and London came ready to play, the morning match up saw them face-off vs. North York Storm winning 6-1 and earning themselves a place in the Gold Medal match up. A quick sprint over to the neighboring rink and a double overtime goal scored by St Catherine's vs. Leaside Wildcats meant that for a second straight year the Devilettes would be playing the Jets. The gold medal game started with a bit of nerves on both sides as both teams traded a few penalties in what proved to be a tightly ref'd game. A few goals by each side had the game tied 1-1 before London netted a quick pair and went up 3-1 at the midway point. Rising to the occasion the Jets came out flying after this and quickly tied it up and it remained that way through the 3rd. Going into overtime the stakes were high, the Jets were the only team to have beaten London all year and had the motivation from losing the gold medal game the year prior. London was seeking revenge from the team that took away their perfect season a short month ago, as well as the lure of a Gold medal repeat. A tight first overtime saw nothing give from either side as close chances were exchanged but ultimately tight checking and good defense kept the score tied at 3's. More of the same to start the second overtime until London got a break and went up on the powerplay. The Jets did a great job of defending on the PK killing off the majority of it until a set up came out of the corner to Megan Hewins at the point, she took the puck to the center of the rink and fired a hard shot on net that was deflected by Steph Moore over the glove side of the Jets goalie and for the second straight year the London Devilettes are Provincial GOLD MEDAL CHAMPS!

McMaster Women's Hockey wins 2015 Joyce Wignall Award




(From the Hamilton Spectator) The McMaster women's hockey team was recognized for their exemplary outreach efforts with the Joyce Wignall Award at McMaster's 91st Annual Athletic Awards on Wednesday, April 1.

The team strives to have every member participate in community outreach and as such, players have served as members of the McMaster Athletes Care executive and as team reps in support of MAC programs. Hockey players also served as Mac Mentors through the Girls' Club of Hamilton, mentoring community youth. The team volunteered in an after-school literacy program at Cathy Weaver Elementary School, and participated in the Equal Opportunities Outreach program through the Pro Hockey Life Academy, teaching hockey skills to elementary school children who can't access other instructional programs.

The women's hockey team also volunteered in the Kiwanis Club "Skate the Dream" program, which was recognized by the City of Hamilton for outstanding generosity and community service for its work teaching hockey skills and coaching kids from the local community.

The Joyce Wignall Award was first presented in 2002-03 to honour Joyce's tireless dedication to student-athletes, the McMaster Athletic Council and the Department of Athletics and Recreation. During her 39-year tenure at McMaster, Joyce embodied the values of the McMaster Athletic Council Outreach program of teamwork, friendship, loyalty and community involvement.

St. Catharines Jets Win Big!  Congratulations to the Jets in winning the Niagara Falls Weekend Tournament March 13-15.  The Jets faced strong competition from Scarborough, Toronto Crush, Sarnia, and Aurora to get to the championship vs the Devilettes. The final, and rightfully so, was a battle between the top two teams in the province. The Jets opened up the scoring with a 2-0 lead after the first period; London shortened the lead halfway through the second but the Jets managed to squeak one in with two seconds left in the period. The Devilettes fought back and scored again midway through the third but was unable to catch the Jets after a late empty netter. The 4-2 Jets win will no doubt be a momentum booster in their league playoffs and OWHA Provincial Tournament in the coming weeks.

McMaster Is Back In The Community - Several of Mac's players through the Master Athletes
Care Program and the team's Discover Mac Hockey Outreach Program jumped at the opportunity to get involved with youngsters from the Kiwanis Boys and Girls Club of Hamilton. The program runs once a week for nine weeks. The two hour sessions are made up of an hour of hockey skills development and an hour of pond hockey. Mac coach Henry DePellegrin is a guest instructor helping Kiwanis bench boss Brodie Beard. The participants' skill level is primarily beginner and the age groups vary as well. Coach DePellegrin says it's a great way for the team to get involved in the community and give back to the game of hockey and they manage to fit it in between classes, studies, team practices and games. The kids work hard and everyone has a lot of fun. Mac netminder Nicole Amatruda keeps the Mac team organized and ready to go. The team looks forward to participating in future events with the Kiwanis Club on and off the ice in the upcoming months.

McMaster Marauders beat Team China 2-1 in Shootout -
that was the good news, the not so good news was that Mac lost the close game 3-1 in regulation time. On Saturday December 9th the Chinese National Women's Team hosted the Marauders with all the typical ceremonial flair and fashion of an international event. After a fast paced and scoreless first period, China finally scored midway through the second period followed by another a few minutes later. Mac responded with a goal scored by their "wile e' captain Kristen Demik with under ten seconds left in the second period. China managed to squeak in another goal in the third and held off the barrage of Mac offence ending the game 3-1.


The five player shootout was a different story. China elected to shoot first - Mac goalie (Nicole Amatruda)  was able to hold the fort. Mac misses - China scores. A couple of more big saves from both squads, then Mac veteran Emily Gearing ties it up with a beauty - bam -top shelf !!. China gets stopped in their last attempt and its up to Mac's veteran defenseman Steph Kennedy to win it. Kennedy steps up to the challenge and with a couple of quick moves slides the puck in through the five hole - priceless. 

It was a fun event and a great opportunity for players to experience international play. Mac players and team staff would like to express their thanks and gratitude to all who helped along the way.

Devilettes Victorious Over Team China - on Saturday November 8 the London Devilettes traveled to Vaughan to face Team China at the Vaughan Sports Village. With a full warm up accompanied by both National Anthems and a ceremonial puck drop the game had a professional feel right from the start! London got off to an early start just 18 seconds in potting a goal on a breakaway but the score remained that way to finish out the fast an furious first. The second period took a bit to get going, however London tallied another two goals to Team China's one and the period ended 3-1 for the visitors. London was able to tally one more marker in the third period going up 4-1 until an errand bounce sent one of the Team China players in on a breakaway and scoring with 7.2 seconds left in the third to end the game 4-2 in favor of the Devilettes.

 

As is customary is all games hosted by Team China a fun 5 player shootout is held at the end of the game. The first shooter for Team China scored followed by the 4th for London and tying it up. It remained that way all the way until 14th shooter for Team London capitalized and a lovely forehand backhand deke to tuck it past the Team China goalie and end the festivities with a 2-1 shootout victory to add to the 4-2 regulation win.

 

The London Devilettes would like to sincerely thank Team China for a hard fought game as well as Vaughan Sports Village and Mel for hosting such an excellent event!
