SCUGOG: The Port Perry MoJacks season has ended, as the team fell in their division semi-final series against the Uxbridge Bruins four games to none.
After losing Game 1 of the series 6-1 in Uxbridge and Game 2 in Scugog by a score of 8-3, Port Perry looked to get back on track in Game 3 in Uxbridge on Friday, February 22nd.
However, over 14 minutes into the first period, the Bruins scored the first goal of the game. But, the MoJacks were able to tie the game late in the period with a power play goal from their captain Ben Sheremeta, and the first frame ended with a 1-1 score.
But the Bruins kept on coming in the final 40 minutes of the game. Over 16 minutes into the second period, a Bruins shot beat goaltender Connor Latchford, making it a 2-1 deficit.
Uxbridge scored twice more in the third period, and the MoJacks lost Game 3 by a score of 4-1.
The MoJacks fell behind in the series three games to none and headed into a critical Game 4 at Scugog Arena on Sunday, February 24th. That game would prove to be the closest game of the series.
Less than two minutes into the first period, Port Perry got the first lead of the game off of a goal from Jordan Baker. But, just a little over two minutes later, the Bruins would tie the game 1-1. Over nine minutes in, Derek Risebrough streaked toward the Uxbridge net, while the MoJacks were shorthanded, and fed Carter Thornton a perfect pass, and Thornton buried it in the back of the net to give the MoJacks back a one-goal lead. But, with 27 seconds left on the clock, former MoJack, and current Bruin, Simon Feig put the puck in Port Perry’s net, tying the game 2-2.
Less than two minutes into the second period though, Port Perry regained the lead after a Tye Stewart wrist shot beat Uxbridge’s goaltender, making it a 3-2 game. However, after MoJack Owen Hurtibese took a head contact penalty over seven minutes in, the Bruins scored on the power play, and the game was tied 3-3 after 40 minutes of play.
The teams continued to battle in the third period. 56 seconds in, the Bruins scored, and took a 4-3 lead. Over three minutes later though, Thornton scored his second goal of the game, tying the game 4-4. Nine minutes in, a Bruins shot slipped through Latchford’s pads, making it a 5-4 lead. But, with their season on the line, Port Perry was able to later find the tying goal again, this time from Noah Bray, and the game needed overtime to decide a winner.
Almost five and a half minutes into overtime, the Bruins ended Port Perry’s season with the game winning goal, taking the game 6-5 and the series sweep.

SCUGOG: The Port Perry MoJacks have advanced to the Orr division semifinals, where they will face the Uxbridge Bruins, after defeating the Clarington Eagles, in a best of three playoff series two games to one.
Port Perry opened the series in Clarington, at the Garnet B. Rickard complex, on Thursday, February 14th.
The Eagles drew first blood in that game, with a goal about eight and half minutes into the first period. But, with less than six minutes left on the clock, Jeff Gauld scored, tying the game 1-1. A little over a minute later, Gauld put a wrist shot on net, beating Clarington’s goalie for his second goal of the game. 47 seconds after that, Carter Thornton scored, on what appeared to be just a clearing attempt, as the shot was made from behind the blueline and did not have a lot of power on it, and Port Perry took a 3-1 lead into the intermission.
A little over three and a half minutes into the second frame, Owen Hurtibese was able to find a loose puck and put it in the back of the net, giving the MoJacks a 4-1 lead.
But, Clarington was later able to score two goals, five seconds apart, cutting Port Perry’s lead to 4-3. However, nine and a half minutes in, Jeff Gauld found himself on a breakaway and passed the puck to Derek Risebrough, who fired it into the top corner of the net, extending the MoJacks lead to 5-3.
The Eagles scored once in the third, but the MoJacks held on to win the first game 5-4.
However, Port Perry could not find the same success when they returned home to Scugog Arena for Game 2, on Saturday, February 16th.
The MoJacks ended up losing that game 7-2, to Clarington. They were out-shot 64-35 in the game. Gauld and Risebrough were the MoJacks’ goal scorers. Goalie Corey Kuypers was pulled after allowing four goals on 39 shots. Backup goalie Connor Latchford, who came in in relief, allowed three goals on 25 shots.
Both teams then returned to the Garnet B. Rickard complex, on Sunday, February 17th, for the deciding Game 3, with their seasons on the line.
It took until the second period for goals to be scored in that game. Over five and a half minutes into the period, Spencer Robinson put a wrist shot on net, beating Clarington’s goalie, giving the MoJacks a 1-0 lead. Then, with less than six minutes remaining in the second period, Gauld came into the Clarington zone on a breakaway and put the puck through the legs of the Eagles’ goalie, making it a 2-0 game.
The MoJacks’ offense kept on coming in the third period. Less than two and a half minutes in, Spencer Robinson scored his second goal of the game, on a MoJack power play. 53 seconds later, Risebrough received a nice pass from Gauld and put a one-timer on net, beating the Eagles’ goaltender, making it a 4-0 game. Two minutes later, the Eagles got on the board with a goal, cutting the lead to 4-1. But Port Perry added a power play goal late in the period, from Ben Sheremeta, and Port Perry closed out the series with a 5-1 victory.
With the win, the MoJacks advanced to the next round to face their rival the Uxbridge Bruins.
After the game, MoJacks assistant coach Patrick Jobb gave his thoughts on Game 2 and Game 3.
“A real bad game, probably our worst of the year in Game 2 and maybe our best of the year in Game 3. The boys came to play today, when their season was on the line,” he said.
Jobb also spoke about the difference between the two games.
“Yesterday, Clarington’s season was on the line, and today ours was. When your back is against the wall and it’s do or die, you separate the boys from the men, and today I thought our goalie played great, but our older guys stepped up as well, and our [veterans] really took control,” he explained.
Before the start of Game 2, Derek Risebrough was recognized as the January/February Offensive Player of the Month.

KAWARTHA LAKES: The members of the Lindsay Muskies Atom AE hockey team are always looking to enhance their skills, and they know, coming together as a team includes honing their talents as good citizens.
Having learned of a teammate’s grandfather’s time in the Palliative Care Unit at Ross Memorial Hospital, the Muskies were inspired to hear how the Ross became their friend’s second home until his grandfather’s passing.
“We would sometimes visit twice a day,” said Cheryl Baxter, team mom. “The floor and the staff became a part of our family, and the care my dad received was beyond anything our family had ever thought of. We had no idea how accommodating to families the hospital could be. My children were very at ease visiting their Grampa. There was nothing scary about being there.”
As a team, the Muskies adopted the Palliative Care Unit as their cause to support.
The team worked together, going door to door, collecting bottles and donations. They shovelled driveways, piled wood, and brought in garbage and recycling bins. A teammate’s family set up a Facebook page, to encourage donations from family and friends. They were also celebrity servers at Boston Pizza, working with the servers, to encourage patrons to donate their receipts, for a portion of their meal to be donated to support palliative care. Their efforts during the month of January raised $1355.
The Muskies gathered at the Ross Memorial, to present their donation to the RMH Foundation, on February 14th.
“How appropriate that the Muskies are here, with their hard-earned gift to the Palliative Care Unit, on Valentine’s Day,” said Erin Coons, RMH Foundation Executive Director. “They’ve shown real heart.”
The Lindsay Muskies Atom AE team is currently participating in the Ford Drills and Skills contest, to have an opportunity to practice with the Maple Leafs. The team is collecting votes of support online:

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.
