Chaminade tops Oakville in opening-round finale

The Oakville/Chaminade Mid States Challenge Cup round-robin playoff game had all the makings of a classic.

WEST COUNTY • The Oakville/Chaminade Mid States Challenge Cup round-robin playoff game had all the makings of a classic.

Both the Tigers and the Red Devils were undefeated and, based upon goal differential, were the top two teams in the standings of the Blue Conference headed into the final opening round game for each team.

The teams had also split the season series, with each side winning a game.

All the drama was sucked out of the Greensfelder Recreation Complex hockey rink at Queeny Park, as the Red Devils scored in the first period and never trailed in a 3-1 victory.

“This feels really good because it gives us a lot of momentum going into the next round of the playoffs,” Chaminade sophomore forward Trey Dodd said. “We definitely had a goal in mind tonight, and we did it.”

The main goal, it seemed for Chaminade (16-5-3) was to limit the amount of rebounds and second and third chances for the Tigers.

It was a successful plan as Oakville was unable to sustain pressure in the offensive zone and that made it easy for the Red Devils to succeed in transition.

“We cleared out the rebounds well and our goalie (Ellis Burgett) did a good job of controlling his rebounds,” acting Chaminade coach Keith Van Gels said. “Scoring a goal right before the end of the period is huge. It’s a momentum shift. That’s what happened there.”

With just over one minute left in the period, Red Devils sophomore forward Robert Gilleland was in the right place at the right time and he got a shot past Oakville junior goaltender Blake Chapman to open the scoring with 1 minute, 9 seconds left in the period.

With just over two-and-a-half minutes gone in the second period, Dodd gave the Red Devils the 2-0 lead.

“A two-goal lead is better than a one-goal lead, certainly,” Van Gels said. “As they say, though, the two-goal lead is the most dangerous lead in hockey.”

That proved to be true, if for a little while at least.

Just over six minutes later, Oakville (16-7-1) cut the lead in half when Andrew Kovacich slid the puck past Burgett to slice into the lead.

“I think tonight, I wanted to see more effort,” Oakville coach Derek Stephens said. “Sometimes this game can be overcomplicated, but sometimes it can be simple when you just put out the effort.”

With 3:25 left in the second period, Chaminade got the insurance it needed.

That’s the point where sophomore Michael Parisot jammed the puck home for a 3-1 lead and that’s where the score would stay.

Chaminade outshot Oakville 30-22.

With both sides already having advanced to the quarterfinal round Stephens said the loss, obviously, wasn’t the worst thing.

The only thing it might really wind up being is a precursor to some interesting quarterfinal hockey.

“Depending on how the seeds bear out, we could play Chaminade again in the quarterfinals,” Stephens said. “It would be pretty interesting.”

Along with Oakville and Chaminade, CBC and Kirkwood advanced to the quarterfinal round from the Blue Conference.

The quarterfinal matchups and schedules will be announced at a later date.

Chaminade stops Kirkwood in Mid-States preliminary round

Just a day after rallying for a tie against defending Challenge Cup Champion CBC, the Chaminade Red Devils found the back of the net early and often its second game of Blue Division play of the preliminary round Mid-States playoffs.

Just a day after rallying for a tie against defending Challenge Cup Champion CBC, the Chaminade Red Devils found the back of the net early and often its second game of  Blue Division play of the preliminary round Mid-States playoffs.

On Friday night at Queeny Recreation Complex, Kirkwood was the unlucky recipient of the Red Devils offensive outburst as Chaminade exploded for four goals in each of the three periods for an impressive 13-3 victory.

“After last night, we had a lot of confidence from tying CBC so we came out tonight and tried to carry the momentum over,” Chaminade coach Nathan Hirsch said. “All four lines through all three periods, I tried to toll them and like I said just try to carry the momentum that we had from last night.”

Against CBC, Red Devils were down 4-1 entering the third period and scored three goals in the final period to gain a 4-4 tie and get a point in the red robin portion of the playoffs.

“After coming back from a 4-1 deficit in the third period last night, the lines were rolling and they were ready tonight.”
There was a lot less drama for Chaminade (15-5-3) against Kirkwood as the Red Devils got three goals in the first six minutes of the game to get early control of the action.

Kyle Johnson got the scoring going with a goal at 10:47 of the period and then John Hogan and Toppie Hogan added goals within the next two minutes for the Red Devils.

A goal from Trey Dodd gave Chaminade a 4-0 lead with 3:25 left in the first period as Kirkwood backup goalie Matthew Eagon had a rough time filling in for regular Pioneer keeper Kyle Baughman, who was out with an intestinal virus.

Hogan scored his second goal of the night just 42 second into the second period to make it 5-0 but the Pioneers offense came to just 30 seconds later as Edward Hoganson scored to get Kirkwood on the board at 14:18.
Kirkwood lit the lamp again at 10:28 on a Kyle Dahlin goal and the Pioneers cut the gap to 5-3 with a goal at 5:31 of the period making it 5-3.

Just six seconds later, Toppie Hogan struck again for his second goal of the night.

The Red Devils pumped in two more goals in the final four minutes of the period and reestablished control with an 8-3 advantage.

“I think the big advantage we had tonight with the goals was that it was just spread out between different guys,” Hirsch said.” Guys getting assists, not trying to make pretty plays.”

The Red Devils kept right on rolling as Chaminade scored five goals in the final period to put an exclamation point on the night.

Chaminade finishes preliminary round play Monday with a 6:30 p.m. game against Oakville at the Queeny Recreation Complex.

Kirkwood (9-9-4) wraps up preliminary round play Monday night with a 7:40 p.m.contest against Lafayette at Hardees Ice Plex in Chesterfield.
