Winterhawks Win WOAA Title

Saugeen Shores | by John Divinski  

Saugeen Shores beat Monkton 4-2 to win second WOAA title in four years.

The Saugeen Shores Winterhawks are champions of the WOAA Senior "AA" hockey league for the second time in four years.

They did it the hard way Tuesday night by spotting the Monkton Wildcats two goals before scoring four of their own on their way to a 4-2 victory.

The win gave the best of seven series to the Hawks, 4-1.

Coach Don Matheson believes the team was just a little too loose to start the game and got caught.

Matheson says it's been a great season, reaching all of their goals throughout the season such as finishing first over-all and of course, winning the championship.

As for next year, Matheson says he'll be talking to the coaching staff before he decides whether or not he's coming back.

He says along with the Winterhawks, he coach a minor hockey team and it totalled 80-games and 70 practices.

He says it's been a long season and he'll enjoy the moment before making any decisions.

Meanwhile, Winterhawks team captain Greg Thede says it's been a terrific season and he thinks it was too short.

As captain, he was impressed with the way the team came together with new members of the squad and then playing through injuries to others.

But he says when it came down to the final game the team just kept battling after not being on their game for the first 10 or 15 minutes.

It paid off with a 4-2 victory over Monkton and the championship win.
