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

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.

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.
