Casselman Vikings take fourth straight CCHL2 title

sean Apr 13, 2017 - 3:30pm

The Casselman Vikings are Barkley Cup Champions, having defeated the Richmond Royals 5-1 Wednesday night to sweep the series and win their fourth straight CCHL2 title.

Rookie goaltender Seth Carter was on top of his game once again, making 27 saves to win his 10th straight game and finish the playoffs with eye-popping numbers: a 12-2 record, with a 2.05 goals against average and a 0.939 save percentage.

The Vikings continued to do what they did all season long, and that was score by committee, as five players tallied markers in this one. Jeremie Lefebvre (1G, 2A), Brendan Doherty (1G,1A), Joel Hunt (1G, 1A), Isaac Barr (1G), and Tyler Somers (1G) all lit the lamp. 

Patrick Kealey made 26 saves in the Richmond net, while Matt Veaudry had the lone goal.

It is a rarity at any level, but especially in junior hockey, that a team can have as much success as the Vikings have had in their franchise history. Each season the club puts the work in to build a contender.

As the CCHL2 news release puts it, "The Vikings continue to be a model franchise, a fun place for players to play, and a great organization for young players to develop before moving up the ladder."

The Alexandria junior 'B' Glens are slated to play in Casselman tonight, making up a game that was fogged out a couple of weeks back. The action tonight is booked for a 7:30pm start.

Alexandria is riding a two-game winning streak, while the Vikings are sitting pretty atop the division standings, still without a regulation-time loss.

Note, there is no Glens home game Friday night, as the team will play that evening in Winchester. This week's home game is set for Saturday, Oct. 1, at 8pm.
