The 2016-2017 GARHL Season came to a close this week with Champions being crowned in both divisions.

RU Serious kept their dynasty alive by winning their 5th GARHL Cup in the last seven seasons with a convincing sweep of defending champion, Shootin’ Blanks. RU’s won both games in convincing fashion, 5-1 and 4-1. RU’s was led by the deepest coaching staff in GARHL history, and by some excellent goaltending to reclaim their A Division Title.

Craig Bowman Roofing made their first ever appearance in the GARHL Final and didn’t let their opportunity to win their first title elude them. Bowman won a hard fought game one, 1-0. They then erased a 2-0 first period deficit in Game 2, to win 5-2 and capture their first GARHL Title. Bowman has been in the league since year one under other names (Slammers, McCabes) so the long wait for their fan base is finally over. The defeated a gritty and experience Billings team, who defeated the top seed Flames in the playoffs, in the final.
