Waterloo Siskins Are Sutherland Cup Champions!!
Submitted By WMHA on Thursday, May 9, 2019
Congratulations to Wolves alumni Matt Onuska (2002) - named GOJHL Playoff MVP, Justin Zuber (2000), Benton Hayes (1999),  Brett Schaefer (1998) and Team Captain Sam Cherry (1998) on winning the 2019 Sutherland Cup with the Waterloo Siskins

The Siskins are the most decorated Jr B franchise in OHA history, with 2019's championship marking the franchise's OHA record of 11 Sutherland Cup Championships and their first since 1994.


The road to the Cup was long for the Siskins.

The club finished third during the regular season with a record of 32-13-0-3 and then had to fight its way through rivals the Cambridge RedHawks and Stratford Warriors to reach the Cherrey Cup final where the Siskins downed the defending Sutherland Cup Champions Listowel Cyclones in six games.

It took six more games to dispatch the Niagara Falls Canucks in the Sutherland semifinals to get a date, as underdogs, against the Nationals in the championship series.

Waterloo had to go the distance in the best-of-seven Cup final but closed out the series with a dramatic 3-2 win in overtime against the London Nationals.  

The back and forth nature of the series continued in the clincher.

London's Cal Davis broke a scoreless tie on the power play just past the five minute mark of the second period but Waterloo's Curtis Rawn responded with 6.5 seconds left in the stanza to set up a tense final frame.

 

Davis added his second of the match just 10 seconds in for a 2-1 lead but, once again, the Siskins rallied, this time off the blade of Sam Spaedt with 4:08 left in regulation.

Waterloo took charge in overtime and capped the victory on defenceman Alec Tiley's shot from the point.

Rookie goaltender Matt Onuska was named GOJHL Playoff MVP for his outstanding performance between the pipes.

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE SISKINS & OUR WOLVES ALUMNI ON THIS TREMENDOUS ACCOMPLISHMENT!
