Real McCoys clinch spot in semis

first_imgAfter losing their opening game to the South East Prairie Thunder, the Regals played an excellent first period, and also took advantage of their chances in the second, to post a 2-1 lead after 20 minutes, and a 3-1 lead after 40. “I’m excited to see what the future holds for us” said Dundas player of the game Ryan Kuwabara.  “We’ve got a really good goalie, we’ve got some good lines and good defence, it’s just a matter of time.”  Kuwabara kicked off the third period comeback when he neatly converted a nice saucer pass from Rob DeCiantis, and says his team is hungry for its first Allan Cup championship.   “You get some breaks here, and get some pucks to the net, and you never know what will happen.”Advertisement The Dundas Real McCoys did enough to qualify directly to the Allan Cup semi finals, with a 4-4 tie against the Powell River Regals on Wednesday afternoon.  Bobby Russell played his first game of the Allan Cup for the Regals, and had an immediate impact, scoring a pair of goals.  Cal Benazic also scored twice for Powell River. But, knowing a tie (or even a close game) would be enough, the Real McCoys battled back in the third, taking the play to the Regals, and ratcheting up their physical intensity.  With six minutes remaining, and trailing by one, Dan Pitre picked off a pass at the blue line, and sent a long shot in on Chad Vizzutti.  The shot was deflected by a Regal defenceman, and fooled Vizzutti, to tie the game, and send the Real McCoys into the semi finals.  – Advertisement -By Jon Zacks Also scoring for the Real McCoys was Dan Pitre (2), and Justin Davis.  Photo:  Powell River Regals Tyler Gow takes it to Frank Grandits of the Dundas Real McCoys – MT Actions Photography So, the Real McCoys will have Thursday off, while awaiting their opponent in the semi finals.  The Regals will play a quarterfinal on Thursday, against the winner of Wednesday night’s Clarenville / Bentley game.last_img read more
