Richmond Sockeyes Capture the 2018 Cyclone Taylor Cup
Monday, April 16, 2018

The Richmond Sockeyes captured their second Cyclone Taylor Cup in six (6) years after defeating the Delta Ice Hawks 5-1 in the championship game on home ice in Richmond.

The Cyclone Taylor Cup is the BC Hockey Junior ‘B’ Championship bringing together the winners of the three (3) junior B leagues in BC. The Sockeyes were the host team from the Pacific Junior Hockey League (PJHL). They were joined by the Kimberley Dynamiters from the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League (KIJHL), the Campbell River Storm represented the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League (VIJHL) and the Ice Hawks were the Pacific Junior Hockey League (PJHL) representative.

The Sockeyes opened the tournament with a 4-1 win over the Storm but fell in their second game of the tournament 6-1 to Kimberley before wrapping up the round-robin with a 5-3 win over Delta.

In the gold medal game, Tyler Andrews (Delta) led the Sockeyes with a pair of goals. Richmond took a1-0 lead before Delta would tie the game. Richmond then scored the game’s next five (5) goals before a large crowd at Minoru Arena.

Kimberley took home the bronze medal after defeating Campbell River in the third place game.

With the championship win, Richmond now has four (4) Cyclone Taylor Cup titles. In years past, the champion would compete in the Keystone Cup featuring the top teams from leagues in Alberta, BC, Manitoba, Northwest Ontario and Saskatchewan, however that championship is no longer in competition.

The Campbell River Storm has been announced as host for the 2019 Cyclone Taylor Cup championship.
