Week 5 Recap in League Play-offs

Week 5 of DJHL Play-offs was highlighted by gold medal performances from the Atom A Celtics and the Bantam B Caps, but lots of other series provided their share of exciting entertainment.

In Atom A, the Paradise Warriors defeated the CBR Renegades for Bronze by scores of 4-0 and 4-1 to claim the Association’s first ever DJHL medal. On the Atom B side, the first-place Blades returned to their winning ways by blanking the Pacers 2-0 in the Bronze Medal Series opener and following it with a 2-1 clincher from the stick of Jack Pearcey in the OT shoot-out. The Caps and Warriors will pick things up at game 3 in the Atom B title series next week.

In the Peewee A Championship series, the RBC Jackals defeated the RBC Scorpions 4-1 to move within a win of the title. RBC Falcons and RBC Wolverines advanced to the Bronze Medal Series by eliminating the RBC Cobras and RBC Hawks respectively. Clay Ryan was the defensive star for the Wolverines, delivering a shut-out performance and teammate Michael Strapp was the offensive star with a pair of snipes. Falcons swooped down on the Cobras net and delivered goals from the Rotondi brothers and Noah King to pull the upset over the first-place squad.

The battle for the Fisher Family Championship Trophy in Peewee B continued in Week 5 with the Warriors defeating the Eagles in game 3 in an OT shootout. Game 1 of the Bronze Medal Series saw the Renegades edge the Breakers 1-0.

In Bantam A, the RBC Generals moved to within a win of the crown with a surprising 7-2 win over the RBC Crushers. The Generals’ attack was led by three goals from Kyle Dunn and a pair from Mitch Gladney, who continued to have a stellar play-off campaign. Elsewhere the RBC Guardians eliminated the RBC Warriors and the RBC Thrashers eliminated the RBC Gladiators to set up the Bronze Medal bracket. On Friday night the Thrashers defeated the Guardians 2-1 when Luke Connors scored the shootout winner in game 1 of the best of three Bronze Medal Series.

In other Bantam B action, game 2 in the Bronze Medal Series between the Blades and Celtics on Sunday afternoon at Bussey Horwood Arena saw Mt. Pearl win 3-1 to avenge a 3-2 earlier setback. The deciding game will be played in Week 6.

Folks, Stay Calm and Cheer Them On!
