Gloucester Rangers lay claim to Minor Peewee A championship
By Fred Sherwin
March 25, 2019

The Gloucester Rangers Minor Peewee A team added the Ontario Hockey East championship to their regular season title on the weekend, giving them two banners to hang from the Earl Armstrong Arena rafters.

The Rangers went into the playoffs as the number one seed after finishing the regular season in first place with a 19-16-5 record, seven points ahead ot the Ottawa Valley Silver Seven.

The road to the league championship was not an easy one for the Rangers. After the eighth seed Kanata Blazers pushed them to a fourth and deciding game in the opening round of the playoffs, they dropped the opening game of the semi-finals to the Nepean Raiders. They then bounced back to win the next three games by identical 2-1 scores to win the first to five point series six points to two.

With momentum on their side the Rangers downed the Silver Seven 4-2 in the first game of the final and then payed them to a 0-0 tie in Game 2 before the start of the March Break. When they returned to the ice on March 19, the two teams didn`t skip a beat as they battled to another draw, evening the first to seven point series at four points apiece.

The crucial fourth game was heading to another deadlock when Sebastien Labreche scored on the power play at the 8:38 mark of the third period to give the Rangers a 2-1 lead. Relying on their defence and excellent goaltending by the Tristan Hodgson they were able to hold on for the win to take a 6-4 lead in the series.

The Rangers went into Game 5 needing just a tie to clinch the final and the championship banner. The game turned out to be another nailbiting defensive affair with both teams getting their fair share of chances.

Noah Strickey's first goal of the playoffs at the 4:46 mark of the first period turned out to be the game winner as the Rangers managed to keep the Silver Seven off the scoreboard the rest of the way. Garrett Maronese provided the icing on the cake with an empty net goal in the third and Zoe Cliche picked up her first shutout of the playoffs and fifth of the season.

In 13 playoff games, the goaltending tandem of Cliche and Hodgson allowed just 17 goals for a 1.31 goals against average.

Offensively, the team relied on a balanced attack with goals from 13 different players. Colby Hunter and Vincent Dubé led the way with four goals each and Nick Gilroy, Kalai Uuttuvak, Xavier Pilon-Faubert and Daniel MacDowell had three goals apiece.

The Minor Peewee team joined the Rangers Major Atom AA squad as the only two Gloucester Ranger teams to win a post season banner this year. The Major Midget AA team lost in the final to the Ottawa Sting and the Minor Midget AA squad lost to the Upper Ottawa Valley Aces.

Beside the regular season and league champiosnhips, the Minor Peewee team also won the Bell Capital Cup, the Capital Gold Rush Tournament and the Toronto Area Tournament. They also finished second in the Guelph Power Play Tournament.
