PANTHERS ADVANCE TO PJHL SCHMALZ CUP SEMIFINALS

PORT HOPE - Scoring the overtime series-winning goal was a special moment for Mike Smith on Saturday night.

Not just, however, because it sent the Port Hope Panthers into the Provincial Junior Hockey League Schmalz Cup semifinals by defeating the Lakefield Chiefs in six games.

That's important to Smith, but he had much more on his mind.

“My grandma passed away today,” he said after his game-winning goal in the 7-6 Game 6 victory over the Chiefs in front of an announced crowd of 811 at the Jack Burger Sports Complex in Port Hope.

His grandmother Shirley Williams suffered from Parkinson's disease, he said.

“She was a big part of my life,” Smith remarked.

“That one was for her and they all played for her, too,” he added, referring to his teammates.

Smith said it was a difficult final few days for his grandmother and family.

“She just fought and fought,” he said.

Scoring the winning goal Saturday “was definitely emotional” for Smith, who said his teammates are “my brothers, they're family.”

No lead was safe in Game 6, so it was almost fitting that it took an overtime goal to determine the outcome.

The Panthers jumped out a quick 3-0 lead just over three minutes into the contest, but the Chiefs responded with five straight goals, including two shorthanded, to take a 5-3 lead by the eight-minute mark of the second period.

Port Hope came back to tie it 5-5 before Aaron Vatcher put Lakefield up 6-5 on a power play with 5:31 left in the second period. Nathan Snoek tied it on a power play with 1:50 left in the second. After an eight-goal second period, the teams were scoreless in the third and for a span of 35:54 before Smith's the winner at 14:04 of overtime.

For Port Hope, Snoek scored twice, Kallen McFarland had a goal and two assists, Dalton Lawrence and Cam McGill a goal and assist and Jon Campbell also scored.

Michael Christie faced 52 shots in the Lakefield net. Sheldon Calbury got the win stopping 20 of 22 shots. Calbury got the start, but was replaced by Eric Jackson – who surrendered four goals on nine shots – for most of the second period before returning to tend the Port Hope net in the third and overtime.

Vatcher had three goals and an assist for Lakefield while Eric Oosting, Ethan McDougall and Will Hickey a goal and assist each. Nick Hildenbrand, Matt McIntyre, Lyndon LeMoire and Cole Ellis had assists.

“That was probably one of the craziest games I've ever played in,” Smith said. “They're a stand-up team but we're ready and we want the Schmalz Cup.”

Port Hope advances to the Schmalz Cup semifinals for the third straight season with the aim of also making a third straight trip to the championship series.

The Panthers will face the Alliston Hornets, also for the third straight time, in a best-of-seven semifinal series.

Port Hope will have head coach Mat Goody back behind the bench for Game 1 of the semifinals as he served the last of a 20-game suspension Saturday night.

“He's our leader and he puts the game plan together and we go out and play it,” Smith said, while also crediting the work of coaches Jay Knuth, Todd Marion and John Foley for their work on the bench in Goody's absence.

A coin flip will determine home-ice advantage for the semifinal series against Alliston with the schedule still to be determined.

Should the Panthers advance past Alliston, either potential Schmalz Cup final opponent would also be familiar for the Port Hope club as the Essex 73's and Ayr Centennials are set to meet in the other semifinal series. Essex edged the Panthers (which rallied from a 3-0 deficit) in seven games in 2015 while Ayr swept the Panthers in the 2016 championship series.

“The organizations keep putting together good teams,” Smith said. “It won't be easy, but we're going to bring our 'A' game. We want this. It's our year. We're going to give it everything we've got.”

Port Hope Panthers set to face Alliston in Ontario Hockey Association jjunior C semifinals

By Jeff Gard, Northumberland Today

PORT HOPE - Four teams remain in the Ontario Hockey Association Schmalz Cup junior C playoffs.

For the second straight year, the Port Hope Panthers are facing the Alliston Hornets while the Essex 73’s are taking on the Ayr Centennials again in the semifinal match-ups.

Game 1 of the best-of-seven showdown between the Panthers and Hornets is tonight in Alliston. Ayr leads Essex 1-0 after a 5-2 win Tuesday night in Essex.

The returning Panthers players from last season that advanced all the way to the Schmalz Cup championship series – losing in seven games to Essex – can draw from that experience about what it will take time around to capture the OHA junior C title.

Essex, in fact, had lost in the final series two straight years before ultimately prevailing in 2015 against the Panthers.

“It’s who wants it more. Last year we made it to Game 7...we came back from a three-game deficit,” said Panthers leading scorer Dalton Lawrence. “Maybe we got too cocky in Game 7 after coming back those three games. (Essex) definitely wanted it more and it was in our own rink too. We’ve talked about it this year and it’s who wants it more.”

Preparation – mental and physical – is key, Lawrence added.

“That is the biggest key to success on and off the ice,” he remarked.

While the Panthers are seeking a return trip to the Schmalz Cup final, they aren’t looking too far ahead. Their focus is winning four games against the Hornets first.

“Facing Alliston for the second straight year is going to be a big test for us, but I believe that our team has the chemistry with each other and great coaching to get us through this series. Also, we are used to both rinks, so there’s no excuse at all. We just need to battle.”

In their quarterfinal series against Port Perry, the Panthers gave up the first goal in four of the five games (Lawrence got the Panthers on the board first in Game 4).

“Our team is really good at coming back from adversity and getting back into it,” Lawrence said, while allowing that his club needs to score first more in the next series to set the tone and put pressure on Alliston.

Lawrence has scored many big goals for the Panthers this season. He led the club in scoring during the Empire Junior C Hockey League regular season with 39 goals and 45 assists in 40 games, had eight goals and seven assists in the league playoffs and produced seven goals and eight assists to lead the Panthers with 15 points in the five games against Port Perry.

“We had to do everything we could to score and I knew you had to work hard to do it,” Lawrence said. “Every time I’m on the ice I just try to make sure I make something happen because bounces happen and the puck can go in from the silliest pass. Games can change really quick, so get everything on net.”

While this year’s edition of the Panthers is much different from last – with so many teammates having moved on – that hasn’t slowed down their path to success.

The tight bond of the players has a lot to do with that, Lawrence said.

“We’re all really close and you can tell other teams always argue on the ice and you can tell after they’re not really happy with each other, but there’s not one time this year our team hasn’t been a family and close,” Lawrence said. “That’s what brings us together. If we get down a goal we know how to get back up and get back into the game.”

Game 2 of the series will be played Friday night in Port Hope. Puck drop is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. at the Jack Burger Sports Complex.

FAN BUS SUNDAY

A fan bus will be heading to Alliston on Sunday for Game 3 if enough people sign up.

Cost is $25 per person, which includes the transportation as well as your ticket to the game.

Departure time from the Jack Burger Sports Complex is 3 p.m.

PORT HOPE - A third-period assist marked a big milestone for Port Hope Panthers captain Dan Lagrois on Wednesday.

Lagrois recorded his 200th career regular season point in Port Hope's 7-1 win over the Campbellford Rebels in the Empire Junior C Hockey League game at the Jack Burger Sports Complex.

During 157 regular season games in just over four seasons with the Panthers, Lagrois has registered 109 goals and 91 assists. The 21-year-old has added 26 points in 40 playoff games as well.

“It's pretty exciting. I didn't realize I was up there,” Lagrois said. “It feels good to know I've contributed to the team, but obviously I wouldn't be able to do it without all the guys. It's not all on me.”

This is the final season for Lagrois and he hopes to move on to university hockey next fall.

“I don't want to stop playing,” he said.

Wednesday night the Panthers took a 3-0 lead out of the first period and led 6-0 by the 14th minute of the second before the Rebels replied with a late goal in the middle frame.

Cameron McGill added a third-period goal for the Panthers as Lagrois reached the 200-point plateau.

Blane Gaudon notched a hat trick in the Port Hope victory while Matthew Hunt, Jon Campbell and Evan Foley also scored.

Port Hope, which is now unbeaten in 13 straight – after having a 13-game winning streak earlier this season – was coming off a 7-2 victory in Napanee on Tuesday night.

Taking an early two-goal lead, the score was just 2-1 in favour of the Panthers before the midway mark of the first period before they blew the game open with four more goals before the end of the opening frame.

Shawn Mackie scored twice while Josh Gervais, Jack Vautour, Matt Cavanaugh, Dalton Lawrence and Foley tallied the other Port Hope goals.

Lawrence leads the Panthers with 31 goals while Lagrois has 30 as they have both played 34 games this season.

Lagrois isn't surprised by the success of the group thus far, despite losing a lot of players from last year's club that had a lengthy Ontario Hockey Association junior C playoff run.

“Our team is a family,” he said. “We're all really close. We trust each other in the roles we play on the team.”

Lagrois said he and his teammates spend a lot of time together away from rink and “that is obviously showing on the ice.”

Port Hope returns to action Saturday night when they host the Gananoque Islanders. Game time is 7:30 p.m. at the Jack Burger Sports Complex.

Sunday the Panthers head to Amherstview to face the Jets.

Port Hope Panthers extend win streak to eight

  •  

  • PORT HOPE - Heading into the final stretch of the Empire Junior C Hockey League regular season, the Port Hope Panthers are sitting comfortably in first place and could add depth to their roster for the playoff run.

  • Port Hope is 25-4-0 with 11 games remaining on the schedule. They have won eight straight contests after two more victories Friday and Saturday.

    Coming off a 6-3 win in Gananoque over the fourth-place Islanders on Friday night, the Panthers blanked the second-place Napanee Raiders (18-8-4) by a score of 5-0 Saturday evening at the Jack Burger Sports Complex in Port Hope.

    The Panthers tallied three power play goals, including the opening tally by Cam McGill, on five opportunities while Napanee went 0-for-6.

    Blane Gaudon, who scored a pair of goals in the win, and Dalton Lawrence tallied a power play goal each for Port Hope well. Mike Smith also scored for the Panthers, which out-shot the Raiders 42-18.

    Goaltender Sheldon Calbury earned the shutout in net for the Panthers.

    “It's one of those wins where the score didn't reflect the game,” said Panthers head coach Mat Goody. “Napanee played very well. We had a bit of puck luck and we played a solid hockey game from start to finish and we got rewarded for it.”

    Lawrence, who has 27 goals and 31 assists to lead Port Hope with 58 points, scored twice in Friday's win over the Islanders.

    Port Hope's win Saturday was their 13th in 14 home games this season at the Jack Burger Sports Complex. Six of their final 11 regular season games will be played at home, including one against the Campbellford Rebels that still needs to be rescheduled.

    The Panthers currently sit 10 points ahead of Napanee.

    “We've been fortunate that things have gone our way so far. We've been working hard and the pieces that we've brought in over the course of the last three months have really fit in well,” Goody said. “We don't take anything for granted and there's still a lot of hockey to be played.”

    Sunday was the trade deadline for junior teams. Goody expected to keep an eye what players became available until late in the evening and didn't rule out making moves if they made sense.

    “If there's something that comes available that can make your team better, then you jump on it. If there's nothing then you stay status quo and you're happy with that,” Goody said. “We have a good club. You always want to improve it, just like anybody else, but at this point whatever happens, happens.”

    Goody said the club learned the importance of depth during their extended run to the Ontario Hockey Association junior C championship series so it's important to make use of all the roster spots available.

    “The deeper you are and the guys you have ready to come into the lineup the better off you are because there are going to injuries and guys that get sick,” the coach remarked. “Having those extra bodies around and having trust in them is so key.”

    Port Hope returns to action Saturday night in Campbellford before hosting a rare Sunday game in the second of home-and-home games.

The Panthers and Rebels will meet again Sunday, 4:30 p.m., at the Jack Burger Sports Complex
