Marystown High dethrones Mobile Monarchs
The Marystown Central High School Clippers played to a 6-0 win over the Monarchs from Mobile Central High.
Junior Farrell, coach of the Marystown hockey team said the team played strong all weekend.
“We played very strong along the boards,” he said. “(We) passed the puck well, kept pres- sure in their end until we ended up scoring goals on power plays.”
Farrell noted the team was to be commended for their penalty-killing efforts.
“We shut the other guys down really well…in our own end,” he said.
Play became more physical as tempers started to flare in the final minutes of the game.
“The last period got a bit physical do to the score being a little high, and the other team was becoming a bit more physical because of it,” Farrell said. “But our team kept cooler heads and stayed away from the unnecessary roughness after the penalties. I think they kept good composure and showed great class when it came to the end of the game.”
Michael Brockerville, center, who scored the team’s sixth goal with just 11 seconds remaining, said he was pleased with his team’s performance.
“We played good as a team, got pucks deep, lots of shots on net and we converted on our chances,” he said.
Patrick Farrell, who also plays center, said it was a great weekend of hockey.
“It was nice to see the teams come out and have a tournament here,” he said. “Even though we had to give some players to the other teams.”
In Saturday’s game against Placentia, Matthew Stapleton, Edward Farrell, Jonathon Inkpen and James Hanrahan of MCHS played with the Placentia when the team were short on players.
“They never had enough (players) to ice the team,” explained Farrell. “So the by’s were good enough to go and play with them.”
The MCHS Clippers toppled the Mobile Monarchs 6-0 on Sunday in the championship game.
