March 22, 2023   ·   0 Comments

The third-place Schomberg Cougars defeated Huntsville 5-0 on Tuesday evening and swept the seventh-place Otters from the PJHL playoffs four games to none. Cougars Coach Stan Kondrotas was happy with his team’s decisive Game Four performance: “This game was about closing the door when we needed to and getting the things done that good hockey teams do.” The clincher at the Trisan Centre was played in front of 246 fans and featured a pair of timely 3-point nights by Cougar veterans Cameron Kokelj and Luke Miehm. Coach Kondrotas assessed his top players’ performances: “Luke’s a hard player to play against. He can play any way he wants to play. Cam’s focus is on the W’s, not just points. They both knew they had to pick it up in this big game. At the end of the day, they’re the leaders of the team.”
