Sorochan prove best in men’s rec hockey

Team Sorochan Wood and Metal triumphed over team Rona in the finals of the men's rec hockey division, March 30.

It was a tough three-game series in the battle for the men’s recreational hockey playoff win, and it was the team Sorochan Wood and Metal who triumphed over  team Rona in the end, March 30.

“They were all one-goal games, they were all really close,” said Sorochan’s team captain Dustin Quezada of the final games in playoffs.

Game one of the series was a 2-1 win for  Sorochan. Game two went to Rona, who won 4-3 in a shootout, sending the teams into a tie-breaker final game, where Sorochan came through for a 2-1 win.

“It was a really hard-fought final, and it’s nice to win because the rec league  … is a really good, healthy, competitive league, and any team can win on any given night,” Quezada said.

He noted some standout performances from players on the team.

“Laszlo Ratkai is our best player and he took his game to another level in the playoffs. Brett MacArthur led the league in scoring and learned to stay out of the penalty box. Todd Boyetchko is a tireless, two-way force on defence and Mike Sorochan in net was our most improved player, giving us a chance to win every night.”

This is the third season of play for the Sorochan team, who came third in the league’s regular standings.

“It’s just really awesome to have a team with a bunch of your friends,” Quezada said. “Sports at any level should be about fun but when you’re playing with friends and you win it’s just that much sweeter.”

In the Men’s rec league’s regular season play team All Seasons came first, and the Norm’s Auto body team took second place.
