    JPN-KOR Intercollegiate Hockey

    Posted by japanstats on 2009 March 21日 Saturday

    Japanese and Korean Ivy schools Waseda University and Korea University have started their annual friendly ice hockey matches with the games on 20-21 March 2009 in Higashifushimi, Tokyo. The series will be hosted by each university on alternate years. The two schools already have annual competitions in various sports such as football (soccer) and basketball.

    Similarly, rival schools Keio University of Japan and Yonsei University of Korea have also began holding annual ice hockey games between them which started with Keio’s visit to Korea in mid-February this year.

    This may be a great trickledown effect of the Asia League with barriers between the hockey playing nations of Asia slowly falling away, let’s hope that further hockey exchanges like this continue between Asian nations for the development of Asian hockey.

    63rd All-Korea Ice Hockey Championships Finals

    Posted by japanstats on 2008 November 10日 Monday

    The 63rd All-Korea Ice Hockey Championship concluded in Seoul last week with the semifinals and the final after playing its group round the previous week.

    Semifinals (2008.11.6)

    14:30 High1 4 (0-0, 3-3, 1-0) 3 Korea U

    17:30 Anyang Halla 3 (0-0, 3-2, 0-0) 2 Yonsei U

    Both university teams gave the pros a run for their money, but the pros managed to squeak into the finals to face each other the very next day.

    Final (2008.11.7)

    18:00 High1 3 (0-0, 1-0, 2-0) 0 Anyang Halla

    35:42 High1 Brent Gauvrearu (Ryan Haruo Kuwabara) +1
    41:30 High1 Ryan Haruo Kuwabara (Tae-An Kwon) EQ
    56:15 High1 Ryan Haruo Kuwabara (Chi-Young Benedict Song, Brent Gauvreau) +1

    High1 took home its 3rd straight All-Korea title.

    Individual awards

    MVP: Hyun-Seung Eum (High1 G)

    VP: Ho-Seung Son (Anyang Halla G)

    Fine Play: 조민호 (Korea University) and 정병천 (Yonsei University)

    Most Points: Chi-Young Benedict Song and Ryan Haruo Kuwabara (both High1 F)

    Best Coach: Hee-Woo Kim (High1)

    Best Referee: 이병철

    (I studied Korean for a bit, but I was no good at it, so I’m not going to transliterate the transliteration of Korean names into Japanese.)

    All-Korea Championship after Group Play

    Posted by japanstats on 2008 October 31日 Friday

    63rd All-Korea Ice Hockey Championships

    Day 3 (10.30)

    High1 2 (1-0, 0-1, 1-0) 1 Yonsei U

    Anyang Halla 3 (1-1, 0-0, 2-0) 1 Korea U

    The two best college hockey teams gave the pro sides scares as both games were tied heading into their 3rd period. And Halla’s 3rd goal seems to be an empty netter, so essentially the two pro clubs barely managed 1 goal wins over university teams. The pro sides are allowed to dress imports for this championship, and by looking at the goal scorers, it seems like these games were played with full squads (though maybe not at full effort).

    Anyways, standings after the group stage:

    Group A: High1 (2-0), Yonsei U (1-1), Hanyang U (0-2)

    Group B: Anyang Halla (2-0), Korea U (1-1), Kyunghee U (0-2)

    Semifinals:

    11.6 14:30 High1 – Korea U / 17:30 Anyang Halla – Yonsei U

    Finals is on the next day.

    All-Korea Championships after Day 2

    Posted by japanstats on 2008 October 30日 Thursday

    63rd All-Korea Ice Hockey Championships

    Day 1 (10/28)

    14:30 Hanyang U 0 (0-2, 0-2, 0-0) 4 High1

    17:30 Kyunghee U 2 (1-0, 1-3, 0-4) 7 Anyang Halla

    Kyunghee took the lead in the 13th minute, held onto it to the end of the period. Then after having the game tied up at 27:43, they came right back to retake the lead at 28:59, but then just got pummelled by the pro side Halla.

    Day 2 (10/29)

    14:30 Yonsei U 7 (3-0, 2-1, 2-0) 1 Hanyang U

    17:30 Korea U 4 (1-0, 1-0, 2-0) 0 Kyunghee U
    Standings after Day 2
    Group A: Yonsei U (1-0), High1 (1-0), Hanyang U (0-2)
    Group B: Anyang Halla (1-0), Korea U (1-0), Kyunghee U (0-2)
    Although the schedule is unfavourable, it’ll be interesting to see how the stronger university teams, Yonsei U and Korea U do against the pro clubs on the 3rd and final day of group play today.

    Yonsei University played great in the preseason Anyang Cup in 2007 when they beat High1 2-1 and barely lost to Seibu 3-4.
    Interesting scheduling note: Japanese teams are on a national break from 10.27 to 11.14 due to the national team participating in the Olympic qualifier tournament in Poland. In the mean time Korean and Chinese teams trudge on with the schedule, and High1 even has a 3 game series against the Sharks in Shanghai in between the group games and the final tournament of the All-Korea tournament.
