Fred Page Cup Preview – Woodstock Slammers

 

Kent Cup Champions – Woodstock Slammers

The Woodstock Slammers were definitely in a class of their own during the 2011-2012 MHL regular season. They finished with a 45-6-0-1 record, good for 91 points, 18 more then the 2nd place Yarmouth Jr. A Mariners. The Slammers marched through the first 2 rounds of the Kent Cup playoffs, defeating both the Campbellton Tigers and the Summerside Western Capitals 4-0. The final series saw the Slammers take on their toughest opponent, the Yarmouth Jr. A Mariners. The Slammers quickly took a stranglehold of the series winning 3 of the first 4 games, however, the Mariners proved that they were a resilient team, coming back to force a game 7. Game 7 proved to be one of the better playoff games ever played. With the Slammers up 3-2 with less than 1 minuted remaining, the Mariners tied the game and sent it to overtime. The first and second overtime period did not solve anything, and it took a huge goal by the Slammers Robert Visca to finally end the game 7 marathon. The Slammers finished as the 7th ranked junior A team in Canada, one spot behind the Nepean Raiders.
