Spartans Win Russell Cup

Almaguin Spartans Russell Cup Champions

The Almaguin Spartans put forth an incredible team effort last night as they knocked off the heavily favoured South Division Champion St. George Ravens 7-3 in Game #6 to win the 2018 Russell Cup Championship series 4-2. The Spartans looked willing to do anything to win right from the drop of the puck last night and were not going to denied a championship victory on home ice in from of 700 fans at the South River Machar Arena. The Spartans out worked the Ravens from the drop of the puck and fought through anything the the Ravens threw at them. The Spartans dominated the first period and carried a 3-0 lead into the second period. Despite being short handed a total of 12 minutes in the second period, the Spartans managed to score two short handed goals and took a 6-2 lead into the third period. The Ravens mounted a charge in the third, but it was too little to late as Spartans goaltender Erik Spath shut the door and any opportunity of a Ravens come back. Final Score was 7-3 Spartans!!!
