November 8, 2018 – Week 4

We had some exciting games this week. In our first week, we had the Novotel Spitfires going head to head with TRUE. This game saw TRUE score a quick just over one minute into the game, but they just couldn’t hold on as the Novotel Spitfires put up six unanswered goals by the end of the second period. TRUE added a second goal in the third period, but they just couldn’t stop the Spitfires who won this one 7-2.

In our second game, we had the Big Red Juggernaut, Aware facing off against Hertz. This was a very defensive game for both teams that saw a scoreless first period. Less than a minute into the second period, Aware’s Harrison Oztemel found the back of the net. Less than four minutes in to the third period, Aware added another when captain Patrick Lundback fired a wrister past Hertz’s netminder, Dream Ungkulpattanasuk. Hertz’s captain, Justin St.Denis scored in the third, but Aware’s Phu Suwachirat sealed the victory with a power play goal. The final score of the game was Aware 3, Hertz 2.

Best Defenseman 2017-2018

This year’s best defense was a tough decision.  Our first candidate this year were Patrik Lundback of Aware, who had an incredible season this year with leading his team to a new SHL record of an eleven game win streak.  Our second candidate was new comer, Juhani Ijas of Expedia.  Ijas had a great season this year, and he was a force to be reckoned with when he was on the point.  Our third candidate was the captain of the Sukhumvit Spitfires, Brad Wilson, who not only had a great year, but in one game, he played goaltender when his netminder was late coming to the game.

AWARE & Hertz take early playoff leads

AWARE’s Devin Michael takes off with Expedia’s Rob Taylor in pursuit.

Same same, but different.

That’s the 2018 SHL semi-final playoffs, compared to the 2017 SHL semi-final playoffs. The seedings were different last year, it was: Sukhumvit, Titanium-Sport Corner (now Expedia), AWARE and Hooters Nana (now Hertz), in that order.

But the match-ups are the same this year with number-one seed AWARE playing fourth-seeded Expedia and number-two seed Sukhumvit playing number-three seed Hertz.

Game one saw an equal number of shots fired on both goalkeepers (29) with a 6-1 outcome in AWARE’s favour. Expedia’s goalie Yves Gaboriault has been fighting the puck of a late and it’s tough for all concerned as last year while playing for AWARE Yves won the SHL’s version of the Vezina Trophy, by posting the league’s best goals-against-average. This year, he has lost his confidence and AWARE took full advantage jumping into a 4-0 first-period lead, led by Oliver Moyse’s hat-trick and a single by Mangkorn Sukwiboon. They added a shorthanded goal by Jouni Heinonen in the second and an even-strength tally by Devin Michael early in the third to take a 6-0 lead before Win Khuhakaew broke Patrick Leduc’s shut-out bid with sixteen minutes left in the game.
