Allstar hoists TCHL Cup

Allstar regrouped after a late-season slump to capture the Trail Commercial Hockey League championship

Allstar regrouped after a late-season slump to capture the Trail Commercial Hockey League championship with a 5-3 victory over Re/Max last week.

Re/Max was a bridesmaid again, losing in the final for the third straight year despite finishing atop the standings in the regular season for the second year in a row.

Allstar meanwhile knocked off Gericks in two straight playoff matches, while Re/Max was forced to play three against a troublesome OK Tire.

But it was an unlikely hero that would score the winning goal for Allstar as Dan Di Vito capitalized on a Scott Morriseau assist to give Allstar a 4-1 lead five minutes into the third.

Allstar’s leading goal-getter Evan McKay scored first seven minutes into the opening period, and Mark Hutchinson would make it 2-0 at the 13:00 mark, before Re/Max’s Paul Barclay cut the lead to one.

However, Kris Koshey would restore the two-goal lead two minutes into the second before Di Vito’s goal sealed it and a final marker made it 5-1 with eight minutes remaining. Kieran Hill and Dyne Parker would add late goals for Re/Max, but Cody Deadmarsh was brilliant in net for Allstar throughout the playoffs and would capture the MVP award for the post season after backstopping his team to the TCHL Cup.

Regular season award winners went to Gericks’ Eric Hill for MVP, Re/Max’s Chris McIsaac won Best Goalie, and Devyn Hill also from Re/Max took home best defenceman honours.
