GARHL CHAMPIONS CROWNED

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

A DIVISION:
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.

B DIVISION
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.

BILLINGS PULL OFF UPSET IN B SEMI’S, A FINALS SET

Billings Orthodics stunned top seeded Flames with a two game sweep to advance to the B Division Finals.  They await the winner of the Tim Hortons/Craig Bowman Roofing series which will be going the distance as Craig Bowman Roofing won game two 4-0.  Game Three goes Monday night with the winner moving on to take on Billings in the B Final.

The A Division Finals are all set as top seeded RU Serious booked their ticket to the finals with a 4-2 win Game Two win over Cavalry Contracting.

Shootin’ Blanks and South End Maulers were deadlocked after regulation in Game Three of their Semi Final which then needed a shootout.  Shootin’ Blanks scored on their first two attempts in the shootout and that would be all they needed to punch their ticket back to the A Finals where they look to defend their title.

The A Finals start on Monday at the Sleeman Centre

B SEMI’S SET, A SEMI’S BEGIN

Craig Bowman Roofing survived a scare from The OHL Experience to advance to the B semi finals with a 2-1 series win. That sets up the B Semi Finals as #1 Flames vs #4 Billings and #2 Tim Hortons vs. #3 Craig Bowman Roofing

The A Semi Finals began on Wednesday night with two spirited affairs. Top seeded RU Serious fought off Cavalry contracting 4-1 in Game 1. Shootin’ Blanks took and early lead and never looked back in their first game against the South End Maulers, defeating them 6-2
