Saints take bronze at Gary West Tournament
Congratulations to the Gilmour Academy Lancers on their victory over Everest Academy in the finalsat the Gary West Sr. Boys Hockey Tournament.
The Varsity B Saints opened the January 12-14 tournament playing very well in the round-robin games. Excellent goaltending and tight defensive play led to the Saints allowing just two goals in the first three games. They went undefeated with two wins and tie to finish firstin the Kinney Division, as they awaited a semi-final match-up with the Foy Division’s second-place team, Everest Academy.
The semi-finals saw the Varsity B squad lose a tough game to Everest, but it opened the door for a classic OT thriller in the bronze-medal game against UCC. The Saints would come out on top 6-5, as Caleb Creasor buried the game-winning goal in the extra frame. It was a full-team effort, and a great weekend of hockey for all involved.
A six-man All-Star team was named at the end of the tournament and included the Saints’ Connor Iwai. Click here for a photo gallery.
