For the second year in a row the Killarney Shamrocks are Tiger Hills Hockey League champions.

Brian Archibald made 25 saves as Killarney blanked the Carberry Plainsmen 2-0 Friday night at the Shamrock Centre and swept the best-of-five final in three games straight.

“We had a great group of guys in that dressing room.” Archibald told CJRB;s Tyler Addison after game three. “A lot of returning players, a lot of experience. It was just a lot of fun coming to the rink every night. We all grew up playing hockey together and now we're all back playing senior together. It was a nice way to finish it off at home tonight.”

Clayton Heinrichs and Reid Gow did the goal scoring in game three.

The Shamrocks were perfect in the regular season schedule going 17-0 and then won 11 of 12 in the post-season.

“We had a lot of close calls,” said Gow who was presented with the Blaine Jarvis Memorial Trophy as the Tiger Hills Hockey League's Playoff MVP. “Brian (Archibald) saved a lot of games as always and we always had a hero. Lucky but pretty happy to be done this season and now we move on to the Manitoba Cup.”

The Shamrocks won both the THHL championship and the Provincial Senior “A” Hockey title last year.

Carberry will join Killarney at MTS Iceplex in Winnipeg next month as the Tiger Hills gets to send two teams to the provincials.

Shamrocks coach Shayne Skeoch says it's been a fun couple of years.

“It's pretty easy to coach these guys. They've all played decent hockey. I think the main thing is they all grew up together, most of them, and we have good chemistry. We just got rolling and it kind of continued from last year when we went to the finals and won. These guys all get along. It's very easy to coach these guys.”
