Shawnigan continues roll through CSSHL

Shawnigan Lake School’s dominant run through their first season in the Canadian Sport School Hockey League continued earlier this month when the team won another four games over a weekend in Penticton.

Shawnigan won a pair of games against Pursuit of Excellence and two more against Okanagan Hockey Academy between Dec. 12 and 14.

The team started the weekend in perfect form as Merek Pipes made 20 saves in a 5-0 win over Pursuit of Excellence on Friday afternoon. Liam Kennedy scored twice, Devin Williamson had a goal and an assist, and Kyle Bell and Cody Friedman each had one. Shawnigan outshot Pursuit of Excellence 50-20 in the contest.

The rematch with Pursuit of Excellence the following morning wasn’t quite as lopsided, but Shawnigan still managed to prevail 3-1. Gavin Yee scored once and set up the other two goals, by Dominik Faustino and Triston Lebrun, while Cael Halvorsen made 21 saves.

On Saturday afternoon, Shawnigan downed Okanagan Hockey Academy 3-1. Faustino scored another two goals and Bell added one, while Pipes was back in net and stopped 23 shots.

The weekend wrapped up on Sunday with Shawnigan again beating Okanagan Hockey Academy, this time by a 5-3 score. Lebrun led the attack with a goal and two assists, Crumb scored once and added a helper, and Bell, Faustino and Jackson Doucet rounded out the offence. Ethan Schovanek got the start in goal and made 25 saves.

Shawnigan’s record now sits at 16 wins and no losses on the season, the best record in the CSSHL’s Varsity Division. Doucet leads the team in scoring with 23 points on 12 goals and 11 assists, while two other players have 22 points each: Kennedy, with 12 goals and 10 assists, and Williamson, with five goals and 17 helpers. Pipes has six wins and a 1.17 goals-against average, Halvorsen has five wins and a 1.60 GAA, and Schovanek has five wins and a 1.80 GAA.

The team will have two play weekends in January.
