After a well-deserved, long Christmas break, the boys ice hockey team hit the ice for the first time back since before break in the annual Gilmore tournament. The Hawks had an up and down weekend but ultimately finished 2-2. This was a major difference from last year’s appearance which resulted in the only tournament win of the year.

The break clearly had a beneficial effect as the Hawks started off the weekend strong with a 7-1 blowout win against Team Indiana on Friday night. Freshman goaltender, Dominic Zevola kept Team Indiana to only one goal against in his first start of the tournament. Then on Saturday the Hawks hit a rough patch with two loses on the day, falling short to Gilmore Academy and then later in the day to Upper Arlington.

However, with only a consolation game remaining, the Hawks sought redemption against Upper Arlington on Sunday morning. With a short bench and a desire to win this rematch the Hawks went into the third period tied at 1-1. Then, in the third period the Hawks found the back of the net six more times. This resulted in a 7-2 win for the Hawks.

When asked about the weekend senior Chris Toth had this to say, ” It wasn’t what we hoped for, but we did end up finishing on a great note.”

The next game for the hockey team is a regular season match-up against Central Catholic on Tuesday, Jan 8. Good luck to the Hawks in the final stretch of their season!
