SCIHL Division 3 - Week 11 Scoreboard

January 26th, 2024

Hat's everywhere!

Ice Wolves were looking to solidify their spot for the playoffs while JOG was looking to keep their slim playoff hopes alive.

A late line up change for JOG saw Scotty Yang donning the pads once again replacing Loron Orris in goal who pulled out with an undisclosed lower body injury. While Ice Wolves picked up Jovi Wat and Calix Ma with a depleted lineup.
And it was Jovi (LPP) who welcomed Yang back just 14 seconds into the game when Hamish Pang passed to him from the corner, finding Wat all along in front as he picked the top corner to start the game.

A few minutes later, Calix Ma doubled the lead, before Pang found himself on a breakaway on the very next faceoff, making no mistake. Hugo Fan responded for JOG, and shortly after, scored his second after Donald Chow picked the pockets of Pang behind the net and centered to Fan who then backhanded it past Jerome Lui. 3-2 after the 1st.

Early in the 2nd, it was Fan again shotting top corner glove side from the slot to tie the game at 3 and completing his hattrick. However, Ice Wolves rolled off 5 consecutive goals between the Pang and Wat line, both completing their own hattricks, along with a Jasper Chow backhand goal, to blow the game wide open. 9-3 after 2 periods.

The teams exchanged goals in the 3rd, with Wat (LPP) getting his 4th, and Fan also getting his 4th to round out the scoring.

Jerome Lui (Ice Wolves) faced 20 shots while Scott Yang (JOG Sports) faced 30 shots.

With the loss, JOG becomes the first team eliminated from the playoffs this season with 3 games remaining in the regular season.

Three Stars of the game:
1. Hamish Pang (Ice Wolves)
2. Jovi Wat (Ice Wolves LPP)
3. Karl Mok (RBC Lions)

Youth movement

A potential playoff preview between top seed RBC Lions and 3rd place Unicorns heading into the last stretch of the season pitting the team defense of the Unicorns against the speed and skill of the young RBC Lion’s first line.

RBC Lion’s Jovi Wat started early after quick pass from Karl Mok freed up Wat who scored top corner blocker side just a minute and a half in. Edwin Lau responded for the Unicorns midway thru the period before Danny Chiu and Jovi with his 2nd made it 3-1 after the first.

The 2nd period was well fought as the Unicorns limited the potent Lion’s offense, the line of Karl Mok, Jovi Wat, and Calix Ma were dangerous throughout the period, but Arthur Chan held the fort as the Unicorns were outshot 9-3 in the 2nd, to keep them in the game. But they couldn’t keep playing with fire.

Karl Mok scored in the first minute of the 3rd, before Jovi scored the next 4, to give him a double hattrick on the night and putting the game away. Rick Chu got a late goal for the Unicorns, but it was too little too late.

Keira Mok (RBC Lions) faced 18 shots, while Arthur Chan (Unicorns) faced 26 shots.

Three Stars of the game:
1. Jovi Wat (RBC Lions)
2. Calix Ma (RBC Lions)
3. Karl Mok (RBC Lions)

Keeping the pressure on

The game between AsiaXpat and YATS Engineers was important for YATS to win in order to stay in the race for the last playoff spot. Xpat’s are currently 1 point away from securing their playoff spot.

The first period was heavily in favour of Xpat as they spend 90% of the time in the YATS zone. YATS could not clear the puck and was bottled in most of the first period, but were able to limit the shots on net, and miraculously ended the first 0-0.

The possession trend and tight checking continued until Theo Wong fired a wrist shot that found its way past Martin Jim to open the scoring early in the 2nd. Towards the end of the period, Rob Chu cut across the slot and fired a slapshot against the grain through a screen into the top corner to give YATS a 2-0 lead.

Jason Wong putting his own rebound in on the powerplay to start the 3rd made it 3-0. The rest of the period, it looked like the Unicorns on the ice as YATS continued to frustrate the Xpat line up.

Stephanie Fok (YATS) gets the shutout stopping all 13 shots while Martin Jim (Asiaxpat) faced 28 shots.

The YATS win keeps them within 2 points of the Ice Wolves for the remaining playoff spot, while AsiaXpat remains in 2nd.

Three Stars of the game:
1. Stephanie Fok (YATS Engineers)
2. Theo Wong (YATS Engineers)
3. Eugene Wong (YATS Engineers)
