Division 3 - Semi-Finals Game Summaries

June 10th, 2022

AsiaXpat takes Game 1 in a dominant manner

AsiaXpat kicked off the 2021-22 SCIHL playoffs with a splash against 4th seeded HoiHoi. Xpat showed why they were #1 through the season by coming out strong and taking the play to HoiHoi from the start.

The pressure led to an early powerplay goal for Hamish Pang. Midway through the 1st, Josh Steinhaus finished a nice pass from Jimmy Lee. Hamish scored his 2nd while shorthanded to give AsiaXpat a comfortable 3-0 lead at the end of the 3rd.

HoiHoi had a better 2nd period with Boy Chung cutting through the Xpat team and scoring top corner on Lui’s blocker side to give them some hope. However, Hamish completed his hattrick less than a minute after to restore the 3-goal lead. Jason Wong finished a scramble in front of the net to get HoiHoi a powerplay goal before the end of the 2nd closing the score to 4-2.

Game on again - or so HoiHoi believed. Steinhaus struck in the first minute of the 3rd and Xpat then dominated play in the 3rd with a 14-3 shot count, getting 2 more goals, one from Roger Li, and Hamish again with his 4th of the night to round out the scoring.

HoiHoi will need to review their game plan if they want to extend the series to 3 games. Jerome Lui faced 16 shots while Anthony Fiscella faced 31 shots.

The Burger Joys Three Stars:
1. Hamish Pang (AsiaXpat)
2. Josh Steinhaus (AsiaXpat)
3. Jasper Chow (AsiaXpat)

Bravo dominates Game 1

The other semi was billed to a much closer matchup between Taboo Devils and Bravo, however Taboo were missing their top line for Game 1 and it showed. Bravo opened with 2 goals in the 1st period, and 4 more goals in the 2nd period, all from the "YTM" line before Taboo replied with their first goal midway in the 3rd period by John Wade.

Wade scored a 2nd goal towards the end but it was too little too late. Taboo will look to recover in Game 2 as they are expected to have a full lineup. Arthur Chan stopped 20 shots while Keira Mok stopped 13.
