Cumberland Dukes capture Bell Capital Cup peewee HL championship

The Cumberland Dukes peewee A5 team capped a near perfect run at the Bell Capital Cup with a 4-1 win over the Westend Savages in Saturday's peewee House League final.

The Dukes jumped all over the Savages in the first period scoring all four of their goals in the first 14 minutes of the game.

Ethan Wilson opened the scoring seven minutes into the first period on a text-book wrist shot that beat the Westend goalie high top shelf.

Kurtis McDermid then scored what would turn out to be the eventual game winner 1:38 later on a slapshot from the left faceoff circle that caught the inside of the far post.

Two more goals by Roman Lombardi and Mathieu Rondeau with less than two minutes to go in the period emptied whatever wind was left in Westend's sails.

The Savages finally got on the board with 4.1 seconds left in the period, but by then the damage had already been done.

The remainder of the game was a defensive affair with neither team able to improve on the score and the Dukes were able to skate off as champions.

McDermid was named the game's first star for scoring the game-winning goal and Wilson received third star honours.

The Dukes had a 2-0-1 record in the round robin portion of the tournament to finish first in their group.

After downing the Nepean Blades 6-2 in the quarterfinals they faced their stiffest test of the tournament in the semis against the Kanata All-Stars.

The Dukes looked to have the game in hand after Wilson gave them a 3-1 lead late in the second period, but a goal by Kanata's Max Alvarado 39 seconds later would make for an interesting final 15 minutes. Try as they did, however, the All-Stars were unable to score the equalizer and the Dukes advanced to the final.

One of the biggest reasons for the Dukes success was the team's ability to get production from throughout the lineup. No fewer than nine different players scored during the tournament, and 12 different players had least one point.
