Lacombe scored first in the final game of the Allan Cup 2018. The battle of the Generals started with a 1 - 0 lead for the Alberta side 3 minutes into the game. Ontario was represented by the Stoney Creek Generals, who got there by beating out a very good Manitoba team, the South East Prairie Thunder.

The score was 3-1 after the first for the Generals... Stoney Creek that is. They scored three unanswered goals and looked to hold on to that lead for the rest of the game. Lacombe struck back half way through the 2nd. 3 - 2. Lacombe scores again and it was tied 3 - 3 after 40 minutes.

34 seconds into the third frame and Lacombe (affectionately known as the "Army" to their Legion of fans) makes it 4 - 3. Stoney Creek answers back 5 minutes later to make it 4 - 4. Yes a tie again (4 of the first 6 games in the tournament were a tie) but it would be decided in regular time this go around.

Stoney Creek Generals show off some powerful offense and manage to score 2 quick goals in the third period to make it a 5 - 4 game. They cap it off with a couple of empty netters. Final score is 7 - 4. Ontario wins. The Stoney Creek Generals take home the oldest cup in Senior Hockey. The Allan Cup will go back to Ontario for the 58th time. It has gone to BC and Manitoba a dozen times. Saskatchewan only has 4 victories and fell short again despite having two teams in the tournament... and tons of talent.

Allan Cup

This will end the best attended Allan Cup in recent history. This is the end of the national tournament in a small town that drew the attention of the entire province in the wake of a National Tragedy. The Humboldt Broncos bus crash happened only 8 days ago. Heavy hearts were at hand during the week long tournament but it was still well attended. Great players made great plays, great saves, and played with passion in the sport that has once again brought us together in the face adversity.

Bryan Hamm, Head Coach of the Stoney Creek Generals, described the feeling of how it felt to win the Allan Cup.

"It feels amazing, I really can't credit my players enough. We were a pretty bruised team early on in the tournament but we managed to stick with what we had and pull through. It's a big credit to those guys and I've never been more proud in my life." Hamm said.

Hamm also commented on how he enjoyed his time in Rosetown throughout the week of the Allan Cup.

"The people here in Rosetown did a great job accommodating us, especially the volunteers. Would love to come back to Rosetown and win another one." Hamm stated.
