Game Report 1905 World Sledge Hockey Challenge
PLAYED AT: MacLauchlan Arena
Date: Dec 7, 2017
GAME NOTES: HICKEY’S HAT TRICK SENDS CANADA TO GOLD MEDAL GAME AT WSHC JASON LA ROSE CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – Liam Hickey (St. John’s, N.L.) scored a hat trick within the first 20 minutes, leading Canada’s National Sledge Team to an 8-0 semifinal win over Korea on Thursday and a spot in the gold medal game at the 2017 World Sledge Hockey Challenge. The Canadians will face off against the United States for gold on Saturday afternoon (4 p.m. AT), one win away from their sixth title at the tournament but first since 2013. Antoine Lehoux (Thetford Mines, Que.) added his first international goal for the Canadians, James Dunn (Wallacetown, Ont.) scored twice, and Greg Westlake (Oakville, Ont.) and Bryan Sholomicki (Winnipeg, Man.) also found the scoresheet. Dominic Larocque (Quebec City, Que.) stopped all nine shots he faced to record the shutout. Hickey got the offence going less than six minutes in on a delayed Korean penalty, going to the net to poke the rebound of a Billy Bridges (Summerside, P.E.I.) shot past goaltender Man Gyun Yu. Lehoux made it 2-0 at 12:40, beating Yu with a quick shot from the slot after hard work by Tyrone Henry (Ottawa, Ont.), and Hickey struck again just 12 seconds after that to put Canada up three after 15 minutes. He finished his hat trick early in the second period, swinging out from behind the net and going low on Yu. Westlake added a fifth goal at 6:36, wiring a shot past the glove of Yu after being left all alone in the slot, and Sholomicki jammed in a loose puck in the crease to make it 6-0 through two. Dunn converted a breakaway late in a penalty-filled third period before roofing a shorthanded marker just over two minutes later to finish the scoring. With the loss, the Koreans will take on Italy in the bronze medal game Saturday (1 p.m. AT).
