Dundas Preparing for Playoff with Whitby

With two weekends remaining in the 2012-13 Allan Cup Hockey schedule, Dundas Real McCoys trail the second place Whitby Dunlops by one point in the race for second place in the league standings.

However, it appears it would take a wholesale collapse by Whitby before Dundas could overtake them. The Real McCoys have two games left – against Brantford and the Dunlops – while Whitby has four games to go.

The McCoys play the Blast on Friday (Feb. 8) at 7:30 p.m. in the Brantford Civic Centre, and wind up their season the following week against the visiting Dunlops on Feb. 15 at the JL Grightmire Arena.

Last Friday (Feb. 1), Nick Smith netted two goals as the Real McCoys earned their 13th victory of the season, defeating the Welland Whalers, 4-3, in a shootout in the Grightmire Arena.

“We played as well as we needed to, to earn the victory, however, Welland is a young club and they just keep coming at you all night,” said Dundas coach Ken Mann. “Brantford will be a good test for us this week. We play the top two teams in the League as we close out the schedule.”

After last weekend’s action, Whitby and Dundas remained a point apart in second and third spots with 27 and 26 points apiece. Brantford, in spite of the Friday night loss, remains in top spot with 36 points.

“We have one Ontario Hockey Association player registration card left, and we are going to use to sign a player who can step up right now, and give us our best chance to win,” said Dundas general manager Don Robertson. “It’s clear that we will play Whitby in the first round of the playoffs and must be ready for them.”

In addition to Smith’s powerplay goal and winner in the shootout, Dundas got single goals from Justin Davis and Cam Watson. Drew Minor scored twice for Welland, including one on a powerplay and one shorthanded. Dan Marwick added the other.

The Redeemer Royals are going back to the Ontario Colleges Athletic Association Provincial Badminton Championships after a strong showing at the West Regional Championships.

Julie Koopmans (Women’s Singles) and the pairing of Rachel Buys and Carla Hogan (Women’s Doubles) qualified for the main event. Koopmans finished round robin play with a 5-1 record over the course of the two days (Feb. 1-2). Her record was good enough to give her a second place finish in Pool B.

From there, she faced off against the top player from Pool A, Carol Delacera from Seneca College in the semi-finals. A 21-7, 21-12 loss saw Koopmans drop to the bronze medal match with the winner advancing to the provincial finals. In dramatic fashion, Koopmans defeated Danica Zwep from Fanshawe College, 21-16, 18-21, 21-19. Koopmans finished third overall against 14 competitors.

The Redeemer women’s doubles team of Hogan and Buys made the provincial championship by finishing third out of the seven teams represented. Playing in their first regional championship ever, they finished the tournament with a 4-2 record, losing only to the first and second place teams.

Redeemer’s men’s singles player Blair Hogan rolled through the round robin with a 5-1 record. Blair fell just short of qualifying for the provincial tournament after losing to the eventual champion, Humber’s Tim Chiu (21-10, 21-10) in the semis and then losing to Humber’s Chris Dupuis in a heartbreaking bronze medal match (21-18, 15-21, 21-14). Hogan finished fourth overall out of 14 competitors.

The Royals mixed doubles pairing of Janelle Koopmans and Dan Vandenboogard lost a disappointing tiebreaker after finishing the tournament with a 3-3 record. Seneca and Fanshawe also finished with a 3-3 record but the Royals failed to advance with Seneca winning the tiebreaker.

The OCAA finals will take place at Centennial College on Feb. 15-16.

Other Redeemer results from the West Regional Championship included:

Rebecca Woudstra, Women’s Singles, 2-4, fifth place Pool A; Stephen Bowler, Men’s Singles, 2-4, fifth place Pool B; Kaleb Antonides and Liam Johnson, men’s doubles, 1-5, sixth place.
