  • Tycoons Explosive Third Period In Season-Opening Victory

    Tycoons Explosive Third Period In Season-Opening Victory

    September 29, 2022 Regular season action continued Wednesday night as the Hong Kong Tycoons appeared in their season opener versus the Kowloon Warriors. Highly anticipated game for the Tycoons as Ben MacAskill, the first overall pick, and Cole Poliziani, the fourth overall pick in the 2022 CIHL draft, were both playing their long-awaited debut. The opening period was tightly contested. The first goal came on a nicely placed shot by Nicholas Weberg, with assists from Julian Ikeda and Ken Yee. A few minutes later the Warriors bounced back to tie the game with a nice finish by forward Francis Lam. Just over sixty seconds later, Weberg fired home his second of three goals in the game, putting the Tycoons in the lead going into the second period. The second period was back-and-forth, beginning with David Belluche game-tying goal early in the second with an absolute cannon of a shot blowing by the goalie. Shortly after, Kevin O'Toole got on the board with a nice passing play, from Brad Wilson and Rhett Willcox. The scoring did not stop there. The Tycoons rallied back with the next three goals. Jonathan Szychta tied up the game with a great goal. Julian Ikeda, a U18 player with a nice backhand finish on a beautiful passing play by Weberg, got his first CIHL goal and followed it up with an even better celebration. The tycoons Weberg then finished a nice wrap-around goal to extend the lead. After a crazy bounce, David Belluche found himself alone in the slot and made no mistake sniping a goal to close making a one-goal game. Just before the period ends, Ben MacAskill sniped a wrister from the point putting the Tycoons up 6-4 going into the third period. The Tycoons got off to a roaring start in the third with Jim Fanstone getting on the board. Poliziani followed up shortly after to double the score, up on Warriors 8-4. Not giving up, the Warriors scored four unanswered goals to even up the game. Kevin O'Toole tucked a nice goal shortly after Michael Wong got his first of the season on a great passing play. A few minutes later, on a beautiful individual play, Elvis Hsu brought the warriors a goal closer to tying it up. Finally, during the rally, Belluche finished his hat trick and tied the game with 6 minutes remaining. The Warriors unfortunately ran out of gas, and the Tycoons finished the game with six unanswered goals leading to the 14-8 decisive win - Matthew Nuttal scoring his first of the year on a beautiful passing play to take the lead with 5 minutes remaining. Taking over in the last 5 minutes, Poliziani scored three of the six goals on beautiful and well-placed shots. Jim Fanstone squeezed in another goal late in the game. Lastly, Jon Szychta buried with thirty seconds remaining to put the Tycoons up 14-8. Arthur Chan faced 49 shots during the game and made a ton of remarkable saves for the Warriors, while Emerson Keung was equally as busy saving 40 of 48 shot attempts. Another exciting and fast-paced game for the 2022 CIHL season. Burger Joys 3 Stars of the game 1. Tycoons - Cole Poliziani (4G, 2A) 2. Tycoons - Nicholas Weberg (3G, 4A) 3. Warriors - Kevin O'Toole (2G, 3A)
  • Aces Cruise to Season Opening Victory

    Aces Cruise to Season Opening Victory

    September 25, 2022 Prized off-season acquisition Jordan So suited up for the Aces in the season opener of the CIHL 2022-2023 hockey season. Jordan So collected an astounding 6 goals and tallied one helper to propel the Aces over the short-handed Warriors 9-2. Aces Captain, Whitney Olsen, felt that it was this team's year in a post-game interview stating, 'This is just the beginning'. The Aces got off to a hot start in the first period, with goals from Tom Allen, Stuart Chan, and Jordan So to put the Aces up to a quick 3-0 lead. The Warriors felt like it was time to get on the board with a goal from Jonathon Der, assisted by Warrior's rookie Rhett Willcox and Francois Esterhuizen. Warriors defender Bradley Wilson was the lucky winner of the first penalty of the 2022-2023 hockey season, after hooking down an Aces player to sit him down for 2 minutes. The second period was a goalie battle, with only one goal coming from the Aces Captain, Whitney Olsen, after releasing a snapper that burnt the ice and went under the pad of Warriors goalie, King Ho. The Aces finished the period up 4-1 heading into the final 20 minutes of hockey. The third period rolled around and Jordan So turned into a machine. Exploding for 2 early goals to put the Aces up 6-1, there was no looking back for the Aces. With a tiny bounce-back goal by Warriors forward, Francois Esterhuizen, the Aces took off with help of Jordan So. After the Warriors tally making it 6-2, Jordan So puts three quick goals in the back of the net in under 50 seconds… possibly a CIHL record for the quickest three goals ever scored by a single player. After Jordan So's 4th, 5th, and 6th goal of the evening, the Aces led 9-2 and it stayed that way until the final buzzer. Aces Yosef Natour was an apple tree for the evening, tallying 4 assists in the game to help propel the Aces towards victory. Aces goalie Boyce Wong stopped 30 of 32 shots putting up a .938 SV%, while Warriors goalie King Ho stopped 30 of 39 shots posting a .769 SV%. Burger Joys 3 Stars of the game 1. Aces - Jordan So (6G, 1) 2. Aces - Yosef Natour (4A) 3. Aces - Boyce Wong (30 saves)

  • The South China Sharks Overpower The Macau Aces In The Final

    The South China Sharks Overpower The Macau Aces In The Final

    May 21st, 2022 The South China Sharks claimed their first title since 2019 as they shutout the Manulife Macau Aces 5-0 in the CIHL Final. Sharks' goalie Avery Gobbo became the second goalie to earn a shutout in a Final after King Ho shutout the Sharks in the inaugural year of the league back in the 2011-2012 season. It was a scoreless first period as both goalies were perfect. Aces' goalie Horrance Cheung got the call again after a solid performance in the semi-final by knocking off the Kowloon Warriors. In the second period, the Sharks finally broke the ice with Connor Daly tipping in a shot from Jordan So at the 2:21 mark. Just 19 seconds later, Ben MacAskill came down the right wing and wristed a shot through the arms of Cheung for a 2-0 Sharks lead. The floodgates opened as just over a minute later, Jordan So was sent in on a breakaway and he made no mistake for a 3-0 lead for the Sharks. Before the period ended, So scored his second of the night as his shot found the top corner of the net past the blocker side of Cheung. In the third period, the Aces ran out of gas and could not beat Gobbo. Gobbo was on top of his game and there was little chance that any pucks would go by him on this night. Alyssa Ho added 1 more goal for the Sharks as she banked a shot off of Cheung's pads for a commanding 5-0 lead. The Aces did have some quality chances but they ran into a hot goalie who shut the door the rest of the way. Gobbo stopped all 25 shots he faced while Cheung stopped 45. Congrats to the South China Shark - the 2021-2022 CIHL Champions. Burger Joys Three Stars: 1. Avery Gobbo - Sharks 2. Jordan So - Sharks 3. Ben MacAskill - Sharks
