ROSETOWN, Sask. – The Stoney Creek Generals took advantage of their third-period chances to regain the lead and bring home the 110th Allan Cup with a 7-4 win over the Lacombe Generals on Saturday in Rosetown, Sask.

“This means the world to me,” said head coach Bryan Hamm. “I’ve never wanted anything more in my life. This is the most amazing group of guys I’ve ever been a part of. They deserved it.”

The Allan Cup, Canada’s National Senior Championship, is one of the oldest club-team hockey competitions in North America, having been first competed for in 1908.

“It’s a lot of work to get here – the last couple years, we fell way short – and this year we finally came through with a well-deserved effort,” said Sean Blanchard, captain of Stoney Creek. “We were short-staffed for the first few games, played with 13 skaters in the first game which is unheard of at this kind of tournament where you play five games in six days. [To win this] feels very good.”

The Lacombe Generals – who have appeared in nine Allan Cup finals since 2008, earning three titles, including at the 2009 and 2016 Allan Cups as the Bentley Generals – were down 3-1 after 20 minutes before climbing back to make it 3-3 after two periods and taking an early third-period lead. The Stoney Creek Generals added four goals in the final frame to take the championship.
