Victor Marrelli’s heroics led to a 5-4 win for the Jiffy Lube Oilers in an epic battle with Heart Lake Insurance for third place as the Caledon Senior Hockey League’s regular season ended.

With time running out on Jiffy Lube Monday night, Marrelli finished off a natural hat trick in the third period for the win. That also nailed down the regular-season scoring title for Marrelli, as he finished with 37 goals and 26 assists for 63 points. Steve Smith of Yale Industrial Trucks and Mike Foley of Fines Ford Lincoln tied for second spot with 62 points each.

The loss dropped Heart Lake to last place in the six-team loop, as just three points separated the bottom four teams. Yale Industrial Trucks grabbed fourth place with a 12-4 whitewash of the regular-season champions, Rutherford Global Logistics, who may have been resting after clinching the title the week before. In the other game at Don Sheardown Memorial Arena, Fines Ford Lincoln took fifth place with a 9-6 win over second-place Grit Bagmen.

Jiffy Lube needed a tie or a win to clinch third place and Heart Lake took a 4-3 lead early in the third period on Mike Lo Dico’s third goal of the game. But Marrelli scored his second goal less than two minutes later to tie the score. Heart Lake pressed hard but Jiffy Lube goaltender Vanni DiMarco stoned them late in the game on two breakaways. Heart Lake pulled goaltender Pat DiFrancesco in the last minute to push for the win but Marrelli’s third goal with five seconds left in the game decided matters.
