The Compass - - Sports - BY CHRIS LEWIS

The Bishop’s Col­lege School’s (BCS) un­der-18 var­sity hockey team in Que­bec took Zachary Ben­nett and Daw­son Mercer, both orig­i­nally from Bay Roberts, un­der their wing over the past two years.

Ben­nett plays de­fence for the team, while Mercer plays for­ward. Both Ben­nett and Mercer are cousins, hav­ing grown up in Bay Roberts be­fore mov­ing to Que­bec to at­tend BCS.

This week, the Bears, with the help of Mercer and Ben­nett, man­aged to cap­ture the Na­tional In­de­pen­dent School In­vi­ta­tional Cham­pi­onship.

The Bears en­tered the tour­na­ment ranked fifth, but worked their way through the op­po­si­tion, beat­ing topranked St. An­drews Col­lege in the semi-fi­nals 3-2 in over­time.

This brought BCS to the fi­nals for the very first time, where they shared the ice with Up­per Canada Col­lege. The game saw BCS demon­strate im­pres­sive de­ter­mi­na­tion right up to the end, fin­ish­ing the game 3-0, and win­ning them the NISIC cham­pi­onship.

Vin­cent Du­p­lessis of Que­bec City, BCS’ goalie, was named MVP of the James McCreath tour­na­ment.
