Cheavers bounce back for State Consolation

The RWD Peewee A hockey team was the lone representative from the organization to reach the State Championships and they returned home with a Consolation Championship trophy from the Sauk Prairie-based event on Sunday.

RWD qualified for the State tournament with a 7-1 win at Regionals but face one of its toughest opponents on the season in its first contest, pushed to the Consolation side with a 5-1 loss against the Tomah/Sparta Titans.

However, the locals bounced back with a pair of lopsided wins, reaching the Consolation final with an 8-2 whipping of the Amery Warriors, then collected the Consolation plaque with a 7-0 shutout against Waupun Warriors.


Cheavers 1 Titans 5

Having lost a lopsided contest to the Titans earlier this season, Head Coach Joe Uminski and his squad knew the opener would be a tough contest and that served to take a little pressure off the team.

They certainly weren’t going to just hand over a win, but they were playing as underdogs.

“We had nothing to lose,” said Uminski in an email interview. “Tomah is one of the best teams in the state. It’s basically the same team that on the Squirt A State title two years ago, plus a couple good players from Sparta.”

Uminski was proud of the effort from everyone, and it was his team in charge after a period as RJ Manley converted an Ethan Wilcox feed to put the underdogs up 1-0 heading to the second.

Despite a brilliant effort in goal from Jordan Kowalski that saw his team up 1-0 despite being outshot 12-4 in the period, the Titans eventually found a way to the mesh, scoring two unanswered second period goals and then two early in the third to grab control.

“Tomah controlled the game, so even when we were up, it was going to be hard to stay in front of them.  I’m extremely proud of our effort. We gave them everything we had,” said Coach Uminski adding his team focused on blocking shots, back checking and clearing rebounds to eliminate Tomah chances. “We did those throughout the game.

Tomah outshot the locals 40-11 and Kowalski, who allowed just two more goals in the final six periods at state, rightfully earned high praise from the coach.

“He played one of his best games of the season,” said Uminski adding that is nothing new for the Cheavers’ goalie. “We had a learning moment early in the season with mental toughness and after he past that, he really took off. He grew as a goaltender and as a kid.”

Amery Warriors 2 RWD Cheavers 8

One of the best things about the peewee Cheavers is its offensive abilities and that was on full display in the final two games.

The Cheavers carried a two-goal lead out of the opening period against Amery before putting up five straight shutout periods. Two more in both the second and third periods allowed the Cheavers to skate away in this one.

Nine different Cheavers checked in on the scoresheet, led by Landen Uminski who fired three goals and added two assists. Paige Othmer fired a pair, Wilcox adding a goal and assist, and other goals scored by Payton Kowalski and Ethan Pope. Single assists went to Hailey Dietl, Wyatt Arnold, RJ Manley, and Tyler Krieski.

Cheavers 7 Waupun Warriors 0

The thrill wasn’t lessened, but the drama of the third game didn’t last long, the Cheavers carrying a 4-0 lead out of the opening period on its way to a lopsided shutout win.

This time Wilcox potted the hat trick, along with an assist and Krieski picked up two of each. Uminski set up a pair with other goals for Payton Kowalski and Elizabeth Haag.

In goal, Jordan Kowalski kicked out all 14 of the shots he faced.

The peewees returned home with a trophy and amazing memories of an experience many people don’t get to participate in.

“We get a trophy and I’ll add a photo of the team and small plaque with all their names on there” said Uminski, meaning every time these players walk in the Reedsburg Area Community Arena (RACA), they will be reminded of this accomplishment.

The RWD Peewee “A’ Cheavers returned home from the Wisconsin Amateur Hockey Association (WAHA) Peewee 3A State Championship tournament in Sauk Prairie this past weekend (March 13-14) with a Consolation Champions’ trophy. Team members (in numerical order) include: Hailey Dietl; Wyatt Arnold; Landen Uminski; Ethan Wilcox; Paige Othmer; RJ Manley; Elizabeth Haag; Payton Kowalski; Jordan Kowalski; Ethan Pope; Tyler Krieski and Olivia Renneberg. Coaches are: Joe Uminski; Nate Wilcox and Justin Pope.

“As a coach, I’ve been luck to coach four teams to state and come away with three trophies,” said Uminski. “Each one has history attached to it and the stories that with them. A lot of memories of each season.”

Any player, coach or parent who reaches the state stage, in any sport, gets a special experience. With the craziness of the 2020-21 season, it’s a great finish and for the Cheavers, there was some lemonade made from a lemon of a season. Playing out of Region four also guarantees top notch league opponents and a team well-prepared for when the big games start.

“With all the Division one teams in the Madison area, we have some great competition,” said Coach Uminski. “One silver lining, with all the rink restrictions in Dane County, this year, teams had to come to us. We only played on the road three times. Additionally, I tried to schedule as many top teams from the area to really push these kids this year. We had a great year and were extremely successful, more successful that I thought we would be.

“This is a great group of kids who want to learn and be pushed. Add in the commitment from the parents to get their kids to all the practices and games was amazing. The families made it one of the best years I have ever had coaching. It’s tough letting go of this group, that’s for sure.

“They will always have a special place in my heart.”






Manley fires three to lift Cheavers past Wildcats

By Jim den Hollander


In between matches at the Dells Cup Tournament, the RWD Peewee ‘A’ Cheavers jammed in two more with a pair of games against the Waunakee ‘B’ Wildcats at Reedsburg Area Community Arena (RACA) on Saturday.

The result was a split as the Wildcats collected a 4-2 win against the Cheavers Saturday morning, just 12 hours after its tournament opener on the same ice. The Cheavers salvaged a split with a 3-2 win in another game at 12:15, giving players time to rest up for another game Saturday night in tournament action.

In the first game, both teams scored in the first period, Landen Uminski scoring for the Cheavers and Trevor Day for the Wildcats.

Wyatt Arnold had a set up on the Uminski goal and collected another assist on a second period goal for Tyler Krieski.

Wildcats scored three times in the middle period, Rylan Port collecting the game winner and insurance goals with the other added by Paige Nowinski.

Jordan Kowalski stopped 19 of 23 shots in the game for the Cheavers who outshot their guest 26-23.

RJ Manley notched all three goals for the Cheavers in the second game, including the only goal of the opening period with a pass from Arnold.

Wildcats tied it up with a goal from Port early in the second, but Manley put the Cheavers into the lead again in the seventh minute of the period and then padded the margin with 2:51 to go in the frame after taking a pass from Elizabeth Haag.

Lilly Wagner scored for the Wildcats 58 seconds later, but that was as close as they could get thanks to Kowalski who kicked out all seven shots he faced in the third on his way to a 24-save effort. The Cheavers fired 35 shots the other way, including 15 in the opening period.

The win Saturday afternoon snapped a three-game skid for the Cheavers, its longest of the season.

The weekend matches move the Cheavers to 21-11 on the season  and the teams head into a well-deserved rest this weekend before heading North for a tournament in Rice Lake Jan. 23-25.

RJ Manley finished off his hat trick with 2:51 to play in the second period.

Uminski-Kowalski step up for Cheavers in Dells Cup final

The Annual Lake Delton Ice Arena Dells Cup tournament saved the best for last – at least in the opinion of the local fans.

The Peewee ‘B’ Red Championship saw the RWD Cheavers ending the weekend against the same team it opened with but with a more favorable result.

A 5-0 shutout against the Ozaukee Ice Dogs at Lake Delton Ice Arena  avenged an opening night 3-2 loss to the same team at Reedsburg Area Community Arena (RACA).

The Cheavers dropped another 3-2 decision to the eventual ‘Blue’ Championship winning West Madison Polar Caps on Saturday night at RACA, but the locals came ready to play Sunday morning, putting its first of two shutouts together with a 9-0 whipping of the Oshkosh Warbirds sending them to the rematch against the Ice Dogs.

Uminski and Kowalski get it done

Sunday’s championship win was a full team effort, but a pair of players stepped up their games in starring roles.

Jordan Kowalski kicked out 30 shots to grab the goose egg in goal for the Cheavers and Landen Uminski notched a hat trick to power the offense, two of them on dazzling rushes that started near his own goal.

One of those rushes came 2:35 into the contest for an unassisted game winning goal.

That lead carried into the second period when the Cheavers doubled its margin with another solo effort provided by RJ Manley.

Manley sent Uminski in for the third goal, near the halfway mark of the final period giving the Cheavers a little breathing room and Uminski wrapped up his hat trick 93 seconds later, all but clinching the win.

Hailey Dietl finished it off with her goal 70 seconds from the final horn with an assist for Uminski.

The win came in the sixth game of the weekend for the Peewee Cheavers, but if they were worn out from the play, it didn’t show as they celebrated their banner-winning victory.

Below is a summary of the three round robin games for the Cheavers.


Ozaukee Ice Dogs 3 RWD Cheavers 2

In the opening contest, Kowalski faced 33 shots and stopped 30, keeping his team in the game despite a lopsided 33-17 edge in shots for the Ice Dogs.

Caleb Kundinger scored the lone first period goal for the Ice Dogs before Manley tied it with 6:51 to play in the second period.

That held up until the third period when the Ice Dogs grabbed two early goals, 1:11 apart.

Manley’s second came with just six seconds remaining in the match.


RWD Cheavers 2 West Madison Polar Caps 3

On Saturday night at RACA Manley put the Cheavers on the board before the end of the first minute, from Uminski, but the Caps scored twice in 26 seconds near the middle to grab a lead. Uminski tied it, from Manley, 56 seconds later and teams were even at 2-2 at the end of the first period.

Camden Sauer, grandson of the former UW-Badgers Head Coach Jeff Sauer, fired his second of the game 3:02 into the middle period and it ultimately stood up as the game winner.

Kowalski turned in another 18 saves in the contest but the Cheavers outshot the Caps 25-21 in this one.


Oshkosh Warbirds 0 RWD Cheavers 9

Desperate for a win on Sunday morning, the Cheavers delivered in a big way, settling this one quick with four first period goals. Another four in the second left no doubt.

Uminski started off his big day with a four-goal, two assist game. Elizabeth Haag and Tyler Krieski added two goals each, Haag also collecting an assist. Dietl notched the other Cheavers’ goal and helped out on three others and Ethan Wilcox also picked up a couple assists.

West Madison Polar Caps 1 SHAW 0 (ot)


West Madison Polar Caps also avenged an earlier defeat when it met the Southeast Hockey Association of Wisconsin (SHAW) Hockey Timberwolves in the other Peewee ‘B’ final, but it came because of patience.

Teams played through three 12-minute periods without a goal scored and were nearly through the five-minute four-on-four overtime when Nathan Justman launched a hard wrister from the blue line that traveled through a maze of bodies and into the SHAW goal to end the contest suddenly.

The same two teams met on Friday with SHAW opening the event with a 5-2 win, then adding a 3-2 decision against Ozaukee and on Sunday morning, a 3-1 win against Verona Wildcats.

The Polar Caps regrouped from its opening defeat with an 8-1 win against Verona and the Saturday night win at RACA against the Cheavers.

SHAW 3 West Madison Polar Caps 2

The Peewee ‘C’ championship game matched the same two teams, but this one was won by the SHAW squad.

Teams were even at 1-1 after a period but SHAW scored the lone second period goal and added another with 4:54 to play. That one became big when the Caps pulled one more back 64 seconds from the final buzzer.

Owen June scored twice, and Luca Davido added the other for SHAW, Jonah Tollefson and Ashton Wedige both scoring for the Polar Caps.

The final wrapped up a 4-0 weekend for SHAW, beginning with a 3-0 win against Ozaukee Ice Dogs on Friday, then continuing with a 4-3 edge against the Caps and a 7-2 decision against Waunakee Wildcats.

Uminski’s four-goal game helps Peewee Cheavers to three win weekend

By Jim den Hollander


Another weekend, another three wins for the RWD Peewee ‘A’ Cheavers with a sweep on home ice Dec. 19-20.

The weekend started out with a 6-2 win against the Sun Prairie ‘B’ Cardinals early Saturday and in a rematch later the same day, the Cheavers racked up a 9-0 shutout win.

On Sunday, the locals grabbed a second shutout, this time a 5-0 decision against the Verona Wildcats. All three games were played at Reedsburg Area Community Arena (RACA).

Cardinals 2, 0 @ Cheavers 6, 9

In the first game against the Cardinals, Ethan Pope started things off, taking a feed from RJ Manley and sinking the lone goal of the first period for the Cheavers.

Tyler Krieski doubled the margin, from Pope near the halfway mark of the middle period and an unassisted goal for Manley just over a minute later had the home side up 3-0.

The Cardinals fired its first a short time later and cut the margin to a single goal early in the third, but the Cheavers responded with three in the final 10 minutes of the game.

Landen Uminski scored the first with Ethan Wilcox counting the other pair and all three were assisted by Manley.

Jordan Kowalski did a great job in goal, turning aside 31 shots to lift his team to the win, despite being outshot.

Kowalski was perfect in the second game, but his team cut the number of shots he faced by a large amount as well.

A four-goal opening period sent the Cheavers on its way and they added another pair in the middle frame before wrapping it up with three down the stretch.

Uminski paced the offensive attack, scoring four goals and adding a couple assists, Krieski adding two goals and a helper. Hailey Dietl helped with a goal and assist, the other goals scored by Elizabeth Haag and Payton Kowalski.

Manley picked up three assists and Wyatt Arnold also chipped in with one.

Two more in the second and third padded the lead, the final two rounding out a hat trick for Manley who also collected an assist.

Second period goals came from Dietl, who later added a set up and Wilcox. Krieski, Paige Othmer and Uminski also picked up assists for the Cheavers who entered the Christmas Break with an overall record of 15-6 and ended the longest losing streak of the season at two games.

The Cheavers were scheduled to be back in action Dec. 27 with a pair of games on home ice against the Onalaska/Holmen Tornado.

Peewee A Cheavers getting hot as season rolls on

By Jim den Hollander


The Peewee ‘A’ Cheavers dropped its first but rallied back for three straight weekend wins.

After splitting a two-game set in Black River Falls Saturday against the host Tigers, RWD returned home and took both ends of a doubleheader against the Onalaska/Holmen Tornado peewees on Sunday at Reedsburg Area Community Arena (RACA).

Cheavers 4 @ Tigers 7

Landen Uminski, Ethan Pope and Ethan Wilcox fired the first period goals for the Cheavers with assists for Jordan Kowalski and Tyler Krieski.

The lone middle period goal came from Elizabeth Haag who pulled RWD to within a goal on a feed from Wilcox.

The Tigers took over in the third, scoring two goals a little over a minute apart late in the contest to salt away the win.

Olivia Renneberg faced 25 shots in goal for the Cheavers.


Cheavers 7 @ Tigers 3

A short time later, teams regrouped for a second contest and this time the Cheavers used a heavy third period barrage to snag a big win.

Both teams scored once in the first and again in the second, but four goals in the first half of the third gave the visitors a lead it would not relinquish.

Krieski powered the Cheavers’ offense, firing three goals and adding an assist while Uminski potted a pair. Wyatt Arnold picked up a goal and assist and the other goal came from Payton Kowalski. Wilcox had three assists with Haag also collecting a set up.

Jordan Kowalski took a turn in goal and turned aside 25 of 28 Tigers shots.

Renneberg collected the win in goal.


Tornado 1 @ Cheavers 7

Everything went RWD’s way again in the second, the lone disappointment possibly being for Jordan Kowalski who collected his second win of the weekend in goal but saw his shutout bid spoiled just 19 seconds from the final buzzer.

Paige Othmer enjoyed a big day on the offense, putting up three goals and an assist while Haag scored twice along with two assists.

Renneberg skated out and collected one of the goals and Payton Kowalski notched the other.

Dietl enjoyed a huge playmaking day, turning in five assists with Uminski adding a pair.

RWD Peewee Cheavers wrapped up a 2-1 weekend on the road with 5-0 and 9-2 wins at Waupaca against the host Comets before wrapping up against a strong Tomah Timberwolves team on Sunday and absorbing a 9-1 defeat.

In the first game against the Comets, Landon Uminski scored the game winner in the second period, adding another later with singles for Matt Stando, Payton Kowalski and Noah Mortimer. RJ Manley collected a couple assists in the contest with others for Aiden Knull and Ethan Wilcox.

Jordan Kowalski was perfect between the pipes, grabbing the shutout.

In the second game, the Cheavers blasted out of the gate for a 5-1 first period cushion and never looked back.

Knull and Payton Kowalski both notched a pair of goals, Elizabeth Haag adding a goal and assist and other goals for Stando, Wyatt Arnold and Dayne Wagner. Manley set up a pair with another assist for Wilcox.

The peewees knew they were in tough against the Timberwolves who jumped into a 4-0 lead and built on that. The Cheavers gained some satisfaction, denying the host a shutout thanks to a goal from Wilcox just 2:48 from the horn.
