The U10 Minor ‘A’ Cumberland Jr. Grads and their U12 Minor AA clubmates wrapped up their 2022-2023 seasons by winning their respective post-season championships.

In the case of the U10 Minor ‘A’ team, they not only won the post-season championship they won the regular season title as well, giving them not one, but two banners. The team managed to finish in first place by just a single point over the Kanata Blazers.

Even though they both had 15 wins, the Jr. Grads had three ties against only two losses, while the Blazers had two ties and three losses which turned out to be the differnce between first and second.

The Jr. Grads then went undefeated in the round robin portion of the playoffs with a
5-0-2 record to set up a winner take all showdown in the championship final against the Rideau St. Lawrence Kings.

After exchanging goals in the first period, the two teams played out a scoreless second period to set up a dramatic final 12 minutes.

Mason Beauvais scored to give his team the lead just two minutes and 55 seconds inside the final stanza and then the Jr. Grads were able to hang on the rest of the way for the 2-1 win. Henry Carrera scored the Jr. Grads other goal.

Head coach Patrick Beauvais chalked up the team’s success to their camaraderie both on and off the ice.

“Many of these kids have been playing together for two or three years, plus they play spring hockey together and they are really good friends off the ice as well so they’ve become a well-oiled unit,” says Beauvais.

Luka Morris has led the team in scoring with 22 goals in 27 games, including eight goals in the playoffs. Will Fortier was also a key contributer on the scoresheet with 17 goals in 28 games.

The U12 Minor AA Jr. Grads finished the regular season in second place, two points behind the Ottawa Valley Silver Seven. The two teams would have completely different fates in the post season, however.

The Silver Seven were upset in the first round of the playoffs by the fourth place Kanata Blazers, while the Jr. Grads swept their way to the championship, losing just one game in the opening round to the Rideau

St. Lawrence Kings before going on to sweep the Ottawa Sting in the first to seven point final series with four straight wins – three of them shutouts.

Caleb Lang led all scorers with 14 goals and seven assists in 11 playoff games.

Asher Dasilva and Zachary Jelley shared the goaltending duties, putting together an impressive 1.10 goals against average.

Jelley, himself, had an outstanding post season, registering four shutouts in the five games he started. In fact, after allowing just two goals in a 2-2 tie against Rideau St. Lawrence in the first round, he never allowed another goal the rest of the way.
