Navan Grads capture the Bogart Cup for the first time in franchise history
By Fred Sherwin
April 26, 2024

For the first time in the 28-year history of the Navan Grads franchise, the players who wear the white and blue can call themselves "champions".

The Grads clinched the Central Canada Hockey League title with a convincing 5-2 win over the Smiths Falls Bears in Smiths Falls on Wednesday to take the best of seven Bogart Cup series four games to two.

Colin MacDougall factored in four of the Grads' five goals. He scored two of the goals himself and set up two more, including the opening marker by Sebbie Johnson at the 4:57 mark of the first period.

Cristobal Tola scored at the 5:03 mark of the second to make the score 2-0 in favour of the Grads, and then Nicholas Poane scored with 18 seconds left in the period to put the Grads up 3-0.

Back to back goals by MacDougall in the first 3:10 of the third period would put the game out of reach for the Bears.

Grads' goolire Jaedon Nelson was voted the games first star for allowing just two goals on 27 shots, both of them late in the third perood and both of them after the Grads already had a five-goal lead. He was also named the playoff MVP.

The win gave the Grads their first Bogart Cup championship in the 35-year history of the franchise. The team will now play in the Centennial Cup, which brings together the top Junior "A" teams in the country who will play for the crown of Canadian champions.
