WCHL 2014 Wheelers Cup Final | Game One Preview
Game One of the 2014 WCHL Wheelers Cup Finals will take place on Saturday, May 17 at 1pm at the Savlation Army of Warren.

The season all comes down to a best-of-three series to determine who takes home the cup, and it might just take all three games to decide a winner.  The Seals and the Hornets tied for 1st place during the regular season with 16 points and a record of 8-4-0.  The two teams split the four-game season series 2-2 with a head-to-head score of 37-29 for the Seals.

#45 Kevin Konfara of the Hornets and #40 Tristan Parent of the Seals are both tied with 16 goals a piece and goalies #42 Dean Olivas of the Seals and reigning Hornets Playoff MVP #99 Jamie Porter, have 4.00 and 4.50 Goals Against Averages respectively, during the 2014 WCHL Playoffs.  

With Konfara and Parent possibly cancelling each other out, this series very well may come down to each team's supporting cast.  Sophomore's #28 Jordan Zmich of the Seals and #39 Anthony Theuer of the Hornets both had impressive second seasons with Zmich netting 35 Goals and 12 Assists during the regular season and Theuer finishing with 23 Goals and 8 Assists.

The Seals have the slight advantage on offensive depth with #88 Jason Drapinski and #23 Alex Maes supporting Parent & Zmich but with the Hornets defensive trio of #13 Erinne Williams, #26 Ezra Zabawa and #3 Aaron Shepard defending Porter in net, it will be a tough series to decide. 

The Hornets are aiming to become ony the second team since the Outlaws (2001-02 to 2003-04) to win three-straight WCHL championships. The Hornets will be aiming to win the franchise's sixth title in 16 seasons and the Seals aim for their fifth.
