But, before the period was finished, the Chiefs found the back of the net again, and led 3-1 after 20 minutes of play.

SCUGOG: The Port Perry MoJacks are facing elimination in the Orr Division finals.

After dropping the first game of the series 4-2, in Lakefield on Tuesday, March 6th, the MoJacks bounced back with a win on home ice a day later.
The only goal in that game came almost three and a half minutes into the first period. On a MoJack power play, Graham Lamers scored what would later be the game winner. Shawn Mabley made 36 saves, for the shutout, and the MoJacks won Game 2 by a score of 1-0, tying the series at one game each.
However, the MoJacks were unable to get a win in Game 3 of the series, on Friday, March 9th, in Lakefield.

Almost 11 and a half minutes into the first period, Austin Mackie tipped a shot from Dan Harris into the Lakefield net, for a power play goal, giving Port Perry a 1-0 lead.
Then, with 47 seconds remaining in the period, Mitch Gustavsen’s shot found twine, extending the MoJacks lead to 2-0.
ConHowever, the Chiefs scored twice in the second period, and the game was tied after 40 minutes of play.
Just 18 seconds into the third frame, Lakefield scored, taking their first lead of the game 3-2. The MoJacks tied the game 11 minutes in, as Risebrough fired a slap shot past Lakefield’s goaltender. But, over a minute later, the Chiefs put the puck past MoJacks goaltender Shawn Mabley, and held on to beat Port Perry 4-3.
After the game, MoJacks head coach Tom Boyle spoke about what the coaching staff’s message to the team is, heading into a possible elimination game in Lakefield, on Tuesday.
“Continue playing hard, they way they have been, and good things happen when you work hard. The message is to continue with the game plan and continue working hard,” he said.
If the MoJacks win Game 5, Game 6 will be held on Friday, March 16th, at 7:25 p.m., at Scugog Arena. If necessary, Game 7 is scheduled for Saturday, March 17th, in Lakefield.

SCUGOG: The Port Perry MoJacks will face the Lakefield Chiefs in the Cougar Cup finals, after winning their series against the Uxbridge Bruins four-games-to-one.
After getting pummelled 7-2 by the Bruins in Game 3, the MoJacks won the next two games, to eliminate the Bruins and advance to the Orr division finals.
Both teams battled hard in game 4 at Uxbridge Arena, on Tuesday, February 27th, with the MoJacks prevailing in overtime by a score of 4-3.
The MoJacks got the first lead of the game over six minutes in, as Ben Sheremeta wired a shot past Bruin goalie Ryan McConkey. Then, with 21 seconds left in the first period, Graham Lamers scored, expanding Port Perry’s lead to 2-0.
But, almost three minutes into the second period, the Bruins lit the lamp, cutting Port Perry’s lead in half. The MoJacks got the two-goal lead back though. Eight and a half minutes in, Josh Dickson put the puck in the net, giving the MoJacks a 3-1 lead. The Bruins later scored, and the period ended with Port Perry on top 3-2.
Two and a half minutes into the third period, after Matt Doucette took a high sticking penalty, the Bruins scored a power play goal, knotting the game 3-3. Both goalies were solid late in the period, and the game was decided in overtime.
Almost 13 minutes into the 20 minute overtime session, Mitch Gustavsen scored the winning goal, as Port Perry won the game 4-3.
After the game, both head coaches, Tom Boyle of Port Perry and Rob Acton of Uxbridge, received two game suspensions.
The MoJacks took advantage of the opportunity to eliminate the Bruins in Game 5 at Scugog Arena, on Wednesday, February 28th.
The game was deadlocked until late in the first period. With less than four minutes remaining, Graham Lamers scored his 16th goal of the playoffs, giving the MoJacks a 1-0 lead.
The Bruins tied the game over eight minutes into the second period, but the MoJacks got the lead back late in the period. After a MoJack shot rang off the post, the puck came to Kody Fruhner who put it in the net.
Both teams battled hard in the third period, but no goals were scored in the third frame. Shawn Mabley stopped 26 of the 27 shots he faced in the game, and the MoJacks won 2-1.
“Today was a playoff hockey game,” Patrick Jobb, MoJacks assistant coach, told The Standard after the game. “2-1 final, that’s what this time of year is all about. We weathered their storm, they are a good hockey team. They came and they pushed and I’m proud of the guys, the way they played tonight.”
The MoJacks opened their series against the Chiefs in Lakefield, on Tuesday, March 6th, past The Standard’s press deadline.
Jobb spoke about what the MoJacks need to do to beat the first place Chiefs.
“We need to play a full 60 minutes every night. They’re a great team, they’ve got great players, they’re rested. We just need to be prepared, and we need to come to work every single night.”

SCUGOG: The Port Perry MoJacks currently hold a two-games-to-one lead on their second round playoff series, against the Uxbridge Bruins.
The two teams opened the series at Scugog Arena, on Wednesday, February 21st. The game didn’t start well for the MoJacks. Just 21 seconds in, the Bruins scored the first goal of the game. The MoJacks had several quality scoring chances in the first period, but just couldn’t put anything past Bruin goalie Ryan McConkey, in the first frame.
But, about five and a half minutes into the second period, on a MoJack power play, Jeff Gauld fired a shot past McConkey, tying the game 1-1. Over two and a half minutes later, Brady Martin tipped the puck past the Bruin goalie, and Port Perry took their first lead of the game.
Dan Harris scored the clinching goal late in the third period, and the MoJacks won the first game of the series 3-1.
The MoJacks continued to roll in Game 2 at Uxbridge Arena, on Friday, February 23rd, winning the game 7-4.
Just like in the first game, the Bruins opened the scoring, putting the puck in the net over eight minutes in the game.
However, just 11 seconds into the second frame, Graham Lamers scored, tying the game 1-1. But, over two minutes in, the Bruins recaptured the lead. About four minutes later, the Bruins, again, put the puck in the net, for a 3-1 lead. The MoJacks pushed back though, with power play goals later on in the period, from Derek Risebrough and Austin Mackie, and the game was tied 3-3 after 40 minutes of play.
Over three and a half minutes into the third period, the Bruins took a 4-3 lead, but over two minutes later, Lamers scored his second goal of the game, knotting the game 4-4. Eight minutes after that, Spencer Robinson put the puck in the net. Just 49 seconds later, Mitch Gustavsen scored, giving Port Perry a 6-4 lead. Adam Turner later scored an empty net goal, and Port Perry won Game 2 by a score of 7-4.
However, the MoJacks struggled in Game 3, held at Scugog Arena, on Sunday, February 25th, against a desperate Bruins squad.
Before the start of the game, Risebrough was recognized, by convenor Liz Basinger, as the PJHL Orr Division’s player of the month, for the month of January.
The game was scoreless until late in the first period. With just one second left on the clock, the Bruins put the puck past MoJacks goaltender Shawn Mabley.
Then, a little over a minute into the second period, the Bruins again lit the lamp, extending their lead to 2-0. Almost three minutes later, the Bruins again extended their lead to 3-0.
After that goal, the MoJacks decided to make a goalie change, sending in Corey Kuypers. The MoJacks responded, as just 25 seconds later, Lamers’ shot squeaked past McConkey, cutting the Bruins’ lead to 3-1.
But, almost 13 minutes in, the Bruins put the puck past Kuypers, giving them a 4-1 lead. Just 32 seconds later, Lamers scored his second goal of the game, and his 14th goal of the playoffs, cutting the Bruins’ lead to 4-2.
But, that was as close as the game would get. The Bruins scored three goals in the third period, and won the game 7-2.
After the game, MoJacks head coach Tom Boyle said he hoped game 3 was a wake up call for the MoJacks players.
“I tried to warn them before the game. [Assistant coach Patrick Jobb] and I spoke to them about being up by two [games], and Game 3 is a key game and we needed to be ready for a big push from Uxbridge, and they had their big push and we didn’t respond,” he said.
With the MoJacks having surrendered the first goal of the game in all three games in this series, Jobb spoke about what the team needs to do to get out to an early lead in the next game.
“They need to come to the rink prepared. That was two or three games in the first series as well, that’s six of seven games where we’ve allowed the first goal. We need to be ready to go from the drop of the puck,” he said.
The two teams played Game 4 of the series at Uxbridge Arena, on Tuesday, Feb. 27th, past The Standard’s press deadline.
Game 5 will be held at Scugog Arena, on Wednesday, February 28th, at 7:25 p.m.
Special to The Standard
KAWARTHA LAKES: Over the past few seasons, many of the Lindsay Muskies have continued on in their hockey and academic careers, after their time with the Fish. It has not been often though that two players who were teammates in Lindsay went on to play together at the NCAA Division 3 level, but that is exactly what happened to Pickering native Joey Vocino and Lindsay’s Stuart Fierheller, as the pair both wound up continuing their education and hockey careers, at SUNY (State University New York) in Canton, New York. Both are doing well with their hockey, and excelling in their educational endeavors, as I found out during interviews with each of them recently.
Fierheller played with the Muskies over a period of five years, from 2011 to 2016, and a further 28 games with the Brockville Braves, at the tail end of the 2016 season. During his time with the Muskies, he was easily the most involved in community events that went on in local schools, with Boys and Girls Club, and other events in general. Although this season, his second at SUNY Canton, was shortened slightly by an injury at the end. He has played 26 games with the Kangaroos over the past two years. The school hockey season is a short one, with 25 games packed in between Oct 28th 2017, and Feb 11th 2018.
“Hockey is going well. The team is taking steps to break school records every year. The season is short and taxing with 26 games and practice almost every day,” said Fierheller.
While he is having fun with the hockey, the schooling is also going very well.
“I’m currently in the business administration program and will be moving into a management program next year. Last year I was highest GPA in my program and an all American academic”, Fierheller wrote via email. “My future plans include getting my full degree, with possibilities of several minors in accounting, finance or economics”.
When asked about his hockey future, Stuart said he would just like to continue playing the game for as long as he possibly can, wherever that may be.
Vocino played two full seasons with the Muskies in 2013/14 and 2014/15. The 23 year old went to the Roos a year earlier than Fierheller, and has just completed his third and final season there.
In describing his time playing hockey in Canton, he said the team has enjoyed several huge victories over nationally ranked opponents and he has worked hard to gain the trust of his coaches and teammates to earn a larger role on the team.
“When my Sophomore year concluded, I was recognized as the Most Improved Player. Now, as my third year on the team comes to a close, I am definitely a much more confident player at both ends of the ice”.
Also this year he became the Vice President of the Student Athlete Advisory Committee. The Committees goal was to help bring awareness to different events, such as the school’s Special Olympics.
Vocino’s achievements in the classroom have been impressive as well.
“I am currently in my final semester at SUNY Canton. Over the past three years I have been able to find academic success, which has given me the opportunity to graduate a year early. During my three years, I held the highest GPA in my program each academic year, as well, I was named to the Non-USCAA All-Academic Team each season. I was also honoured, at the end of my Sophomore year, as a SUNY Chancellor’s Award recipient, which recognizes my success both in the classroom and on the ice. This May 2018, I will be graduating SUNY Canton with an Associate’s Degree in Liberal Arts and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Applied Psychology”.
When asked what his future may hold, he was quick to say that his line of work will eventually be in the field of education.
“I am currently applying to a concurrent Bachelor of Education and Master’s Program. As for hockey, I am not sure where my skates will take me, but I am definitely not closing the door on my hockey career just yet”!
All of us, with the Lindsay Muskies organization, are proud to see our guys move on successfully, and it was a real pleasure to catch up with these guys and we wish them both continued success.
