Baron Cup III Recap

Adam Eisen

Today’s game between the #3 Aurora Greenmen and the #4 CVCA Royals was incredible. This was a matchup between lower seeded teams that showed the number in front of their team name meant absolutely nothing. We watched two incredible teams lay everything on the line and be proud of the way they played.

The first period was two teams that had the transition game going well and two goalies who were playing the position well from a fundamental position. Aurora had some opportunities that they missed. Would those come back to haunt them later?

The second period saw the Greenmen of Aurora come out really aggressively. They supported the puck well, stayed disciplined and exploited CVCA’s desire to play a perimeter game. CVCA’s goalie, Brooks Montgomery, started to struggle seeing the puck and gave up a goal. 1-0 Aurora at the end of the second period. Oh, and CVCA’s superstar defenseman, Hayden Dickerson left for the locker room with just over three minutes remaining in the period and his team trailing.

The third period seemed to spell doom and gloom for CVCA and their faithful but they stuck with it. Soon the momentum began to shift from Aurora thinking this game was theirs for the taking to playing to not lose the game. Hayden Dickerson was able to start the third period and seemed to be fine. Aurora managed to keep it clean, until that shift in momentum. It became clear that CVCA wanted it more and got it, when they tied the game at 1. Aurora began to feel it slipping away and took a penalty right at the end of the period, with the game heading into overtime.

So for the fourth consecutive game in this tournament, we were getting extra hockey. Overtime starting with special teams is never a good thing but Aurora killed off the penalty. Then, barely two minutes into the extra frame, Dickerson proved how clutch he is as he rifled that sneaky wrist shot of his past Joseph Brockway and won the Baron Cup III for the CVCA Royals.

Extra Credit

Adam Eisen

Listening to the games yesterday as a studio analyst wore me out. I cannot imagine how the teams that play today feel. Of course there is another group who deserves credit and those are the teams that lost yesterday.

Often in sports we talk about winners vs. losers. Today and ten years from now, the teams that lost will still be upset about losing. However they deserve respect and admiration for playing their hearts out yesterday.

So what does that have to do with the title of this piece? Extra credit? There is an overarching theme from yesterday’s games. That theme is that Aurora, North Olmsted and Shaker Heights had no business winning their games yesterday.

A shaky goaltender can cost you dearly. Liam Siwik’s teammates bailed him out yesterday. I would suspect he will show up much more focused for the Baron Cup championship game against North Olmsted.

Speaking of North Olmsted, how is it that a team with 11 skaters and two goalies manage to play a quadruple overtime game and then turn around against Shaker Heights? Well, they are the proverbial little engine that could. They are not going to back down. This game has the chance to be the game of the day, and that’s saying something when you think about the fact that there are three title games today.

Finally, there is one last team that needs to be recognized for their extra credit. The Aurora Greenmen. In hockey, there’s a saying: a two goal lead is the worst lead in hockey. Against Brooklyn, this theory proved correct. Aurora is up 2-0, give up four unanswered goals. Brooklyn had home ice advantage throughout the tournament. Aurora’s captain, Joe Capretta, got tossed in the first period yesterday. The game was seemingly lost. Then, with all of five seconds left Aurora tied it up at 4 and managed to win it in overtime.

With all three of these teams playing overtime games and spending the day on an emotional roller coaster, they will need that extra credit today to give their teams every opportunity to win.

2017-18 OHSAA Football Championship Returns To Canton Football Hall Of Fame

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The OHSAA announced yesterday that the Ohio High School Athletic Association StateFootball Championship will be moving back to Canton at the Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium. After Thursday’s 9-0 vote the tentative agreement to return to Canton was solidified. The seven games will be played at the new facility in Canton.

The games were played in Canton for twenty-four years in Stark County from 1990-2013. The last three championships (2014, 2015 and 2016) were played at Ohio Stadium allowing for the renovations to take place at the Canton facility.

“When we first secured the state championships in 1990, we assured the OHSAA that Stark County would produce what would ultimately become the gold standard for high school football,” President & CEO Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce Dennis Saunier said. “For the nearly a quarter century, players, coaches, students and fans experienced a well organized community that embraced the spirit of high school excellence.
“With completion of Tom Benson Stadium and the building of Johnson Controls Hall of Fame Village, the experience will be the best in the nation. Welcome home OHSAA.”
