It was a record-setting season for the Uxbridge Bruins, en route to a first place finish in the PJHL Orr Division’s regular season standings.
Over the weekend, the Bruins established a new franchise record for wins, with 33 in the season, as well as tying the franchise record (with the 2001-02 edition of the team) for points with 68.
The Bruins dethroned the North Kawartha Knights by a score of 3-1, at the Bear Den on Friday night, before putting an exclamation point on the campaign, with a shutout victory over the Georgina Ice, in Sutton, on Sunday afternoon.
With the Knights still in the race for first place, the stakes were high for Uxbridge’s final regular season home game. Through the first 20 minutes, the goaltenders stole the show, with both sides scoreless through the first period.
The second period saw the two teams trade goals, with Michael Rennie lighting the lamp for Uxbridge.
Just over three minutes into the third period, Aiden Reilly restored Uxbridge’s advantage, with an unassisted goal. At the midpoint of the third, Jackson Savery added an insurance marker that bounced in off the skate of a North Kawartha defender.
Holding a bye to the Orr Division semi-finals, the Bruins are now enjoying a week away from game action, awaiting the winner of the preliminary series between Clarington and Port Perry.
Playoff action for the Bruins is set to get underway on Family Day, Monday, February 18th, in the afternoon, at Uxbridge Arena, with a special ‘Skate with the Bruins’ event to follow.

At 4:34 Nick Giunta made it 2-0, from Devyn Mayea and Luciani, and at 8:52 the Waxers lead by three, on a goal from Dylan Scriver, assisted by Sam Marit and Aubin.

The Waxers would restore the three goal cushion before the period ended though, on a shorth handed goal from Luciani, assisted by Patrick Kalazer and Aubin, then it was Matthew Hayami, from Kalazer and Ryan Roseborough.
Markham’s William Redick essentially put the game out of reach, at the 3:48 mark of the 2nd period, with a goal, set up by Mayea and Marit. Watson’s 2nd of the game was an unassisted marker for Lindsay, but Markham’s Aubin would pick up his 2nd of the night on the last second of play.

SCUGOG: The Port Perry MoJacks earned a split in their final two regular season tune up games, before a best of three playoff series against the Clarington Eagles.
Before the game on Friday, February 8th, against the Georgina Ice, MoJacks head coach Tom Boyle told The Standard the coaching staff has been pushing the MoJacks players to start to elevate their game, to a playoff like level, in their final regular season games.
“That’s been the message, we want to start playing playoff hockey in the last four or five games, and I think we have competed well for the last three or four games and we still have a couple left, and we expect to play hard [in those games,]” he explained.
Friday’s game started off well for the MoJacks. Noah Donaghy had a first period hat trick and Owen Hurtibese scored the MoJacks other goal of the period, giving Port Perry a 4-1 lead after 20 minutes of play.
A little over two minutes into the second period, Liam Schweda struck on the power play, increasing the MoJacks’ lead to 5-1. 40 seconds later, MoJacks Captain Ben Sheremeta found the back of the net, making it a 6-1 game. Over four minutes later, the MoJacks again capitalized on a power play, this time with Hurtibese’s second goal of the game, and the MoJacks held a commanding 7-1 lead. A bit over three minutes later, the Ice would find the back of the net, cutting the lead to 7-2, but Donaghy scored his fourth goal of the game three minutes later, and Port Perry took an 8-2 lead into the intermission.
In the third, Hurtibese would score his hat trick goal, after Noah Bray scored, and the MoJacks won the game 10-2.
However, Port Perry wouldn’t find the same results in their final game of the regular season, at Scugog Arena against the Little Britain Merchants, on Sunday, February 10th.
Late in the first period, the Merchants cashed in first, taking a 1-0 lead on their ninth shot of the period.
Little Britain scored twice more in the second period, including a power play goal, and held a 3-0 lead after 40 minutes of play.
But, under six and a half minutes into the third frame, Derek Risebrough scored, to cut the deficit to 3-1. However, that was as close as they would get, as Little Britain scored three times in the third period, and won the game 6-1.
Little Britain outshot Port Perry 38-20 in the game.
The MoJacks will open the playoffs in Clarington, at the Garnet B. Rickard complex, this Thursday, February 14th, at 7:20 p.m. Game 2, at Scugog Arena, will be on Saturday, February 16th, at 7:50 p.m. Game 3, if necessary, will be held in Clarington, on Sunday, February 17th.

The Wellington Dukes visited the Muskies on Friday night, and despite the fact the Fish have had a good amount of success against the foes from Prince Edward County, they were no match tonight, as the Dukes took this one by a score of 4-0.
The Muskies were icing a bit of a depleted lineup, as there were at least three regulars in street clothes, for this one.
In the first period the game started off with an even flow, but Elijah Gonsalves opened the scoring when he got in close and roofed a nice shot over the shoulder of Muskies starting netminder Dean Buchholz. The goal came at 5:25, and was assisted by Ben Roger and Joe Roy. After a second goal was waived off, the Dukes struck quickly again, when Buchholz stopped a Jacob Vreugdenhil point shot but Dawson Ellis was there to jam home the rebound. Adam Usinger grabbed the second assist. A turnover deep in the Lindsay zone, at 15:47, lead to an Andrew Rinaldi goal, from Frank Vitucci and Ben Woodhouse, to make it 3-0.
Blake Curran came in to start the second period, in goal for the Muskies, and he looked strong as the Dukes continued to out shoot the Muskies. With the Dukes on a two man advantage though there wasn’t much he could do, as Zach Uens ripped a slap shot from the slot at 10:54 to round out the scoring. The helpers on that goal went to Tim Fallowfield and Gonsalves.
Tempers began to flare over in the third period with a number of inciting penalties and misconducts handed out but there were no more goals.
Logan Bateman picked up the shutout for Wellington, as the Dukes out shot the Muskies by a count of 50-24.
The next action for Lindsay is Sunday night, in Trenton.
