Saturday night in Rosetown, Saskatchewan it was ‘Generals’ warfare as the Lacombe Generals faced the Stoney Creek Generals for Canada’s Senior AAA Men’s Hockey Championship, the Allan Cup.

This was the teams’ second meeting of the tournament, with the first being in pool play in which Lacombe, representing Alberta, won 5-3 on Wednesday night over Stoney Creek, representing Ontario.

Lacombe would strike first in each period, but Stoney Creek would continue to battle throughout the game. After surrendering the opening goal, Stoney Creek closed out the first by scoring three straight goals coming off the sticks of Justin Donati, Jarrett Konkle and Sean Blanchard.

However, in the second period, Stoney Creek would not answer back after Lacombe scored. This time Lacombe would add a second in the period to tie the game at three, and they didn’t let up, outshooting Stoney Creek 10-5 in the frame.

Lacombe would take their second lead of the game just 34 seconds into the third period but four minutes later Nathan Pageau tied the game up for the Generals from Stoney Creek. Just over a minute later Tyler Donati scored to give the Ontario representatives the lead once again. This time though, they wouldn’t give it up.

Rob Hissey and Justin Sawyer would each add empty net goals for Stoney Creek to give them a 7-4 victory for their first ever Allan Cup National Senior Championship.

Cam Fergus led Stoney Creek with three assists in the game while Hisey and the Donati brothers each had a goal and an assist in the game. Justin Donati would lead all scorers in the tournament with seven points (4-3) over vour games while Hisey was one behind in second (2-4) and Tyler Donati was in a tie for third with five points (2-3).

This is the 50th time that the Allan Cup has been won by an Ontario team (Northern and Southern) and the first time in 58 years that Southern Ontario has won outside of Ontario. The last time a team from Ontario won the Allan Cup was in 2014 when the Dundas Real McCoys hosted and won the tournament.
