Shawnigan stays perfect in CSSHL

The remarkably consistent Jackson Doucet scored twice in each game as Shawnigan Lake School continued to run the table in the Canadian Sport School Hockey League with four wins in Calgary last weekend.

Shawnigan improved to 12-0 in its first season of play in the CSSHL’s Varsity Division through three weekends of play, one in each month since school started in September.

Cael Halvorsen got Shawnigan off to an excellent start on Friday afternoon, making 28 saves to shut out Banff Hockey Academy 6-0. In addition to Doucet’s two goals, Kyle Bell scored once and added two assists, and Noah Crumb, Triston Lebrun and Liam Kennedy had one goal apiece. Reid Irwin and Devin Williamson each registered two assists, and Tyler Knelson, Gavin Yee and Seth Purdey had one assist apiece.

The following morning, Doucet again scored twice, Crumb had a goal and an assist, and Lebrun rounded out the offence as Shawnigan downed Compete Hockey Academy 4-1. Bell, Irwin, Williamson, Purdey, Kennedy, Olin Webb and Kei Lowes had assists, while Merek Pipes stopped 27 of 28 shots for the win.

Liam Kennedy completed a hat trick and Shawnigan outshot their opponents 70-16 in a 9-1 crushing of Calgary’s own Edge Hockey Academy. Doucet had another two goals, Knelson and Williamson had one goal and two assists each, Irwin had a goal and one helper, and Matthew Kors also scored. Kieran Furlonger recorded two assists, and Webb, Bell, Crumb and Lebrun each had one assist. Ethan Schovanek made 15 saves for the win.

Lebrun scored his own hat trick on Sunday morning and added two assists as Shawnigan beat Banff Hockey Academy 8-2 in a rematch of Friday’s opener. Doucet added a pair of assists to his customary two goals, while Purdey also scored twice, and Kennedy had a goal and two assists. Irwin registered two assists, and Knelson, Yee, Crumb, Williamson, Tomas Redl and Cody Friedman had one each. Halvorsen returned to the net and stopped 34 of 36 shots.

Shawnigan’s next CSSHL games are set for Dec. 12-14 in Penticton.
