Stockbridge keeps rolling, Mcmann signs deal, local scores
The Cougars are on fire The Cougar’s baseball and softball teams are on fire.
The lady Cougars have won 4 in a row and getting that momentum back after dropping two games at Mudville. Head coach Chris Peto secured 300 wins last week, and the Cougars took over first place in the CCL. And in their recent contest against Deruyter, Stockbridge kept that heat going with a 10-4 win.
Jill Jacobs led the offense by going 3-4 with 2 RBI. Alyssa Enslow chipped in with 2 RBI of her own. But Abby Reed in the circle is what kept the Rockets at bay. Reed pitched 7 innings, 2 ER, with 16 K. The Cougars are sitting atop the CCL standings with a 6-0 record and a 6-2.
On the baseball side, Stockbridge also gets a win over the Rockets and improves to 7-0 overall.
The Cougars were on very
dangerous ground to start the game as the Rockets brought home 8 runs early in the game as Stockbridge failed to get any offense going. But in the 4th, the bats came alive, and the Cougars scored 13 unanswered runs to take down Deruyter.
Charlie Cross went 2-5, 1 run scored with 2 RBI, while his brother Jack Cross went 2-3 with 2 runs scored, 1 RBI, and 1 walk. Tyler Fisher went 1-3 with 2 RBI, and Tristan Ellerbruch went 2-3, 3 runs scored, 2 RBI, and 2 walks.
“All in all, it was an incredible comeback on the road against the sectional runner-up from a year ago. It was a good league battle, and I couldn’t be more proud of the boys for the gutsy, hard-fought win,” coach Shanks said.
Cougars win a tough game 13-8 and improve to 7-0.
Mcmann ’20 Signs Deal with Maple Leafs
The Toronto Maple Leafs announced the signing of forward Bobby Mcmann ’20 to a two-year, two-way future contract on April 29.
In his second season with the Maple Leafs’ AHL affiliate, the Toronto Marlies, Mcmann has tallied 35 points (24 goals, 11 assists) in 61 games. He is currently second on the team and fourth among AHL rookies in goals.
“Honestly, I am not at all surprised by the success Bobby has had this year. He is one of the most committed players I have ever coached. He does things the right way and has always been a late bloomer,” said Raiders’ head coach Don Vaughan.
“As a coach, I want Bobby Mcmann on my team. He will make others better simply by how hard he works. He is so approachable and wants to learn. I want more players like Bobby Mcmann in my program.”
Mcmann signed with the Marlies as a free agent in April 2020. During his first season, he split time between the Marlies and the Wichita Thunder (ECHL). He tallied six goals and 11 assists in 18 games with the Thunder and had two goals and two assists in 21 appearances with Toronto.
On April 28, Mcmann netted his 24th goal, which broke the Marlies’ franchise record for most in a season by a rookie.
The Wainwright, Alberta native, had a stellar four-year career with Colgate, recording 92 points by 37 goals and 55 assists in 145 games. Notching 12 power play goals and seven game-winning goals, he led the Raiders in scoring for three-straight seasons from 2017-20.
During his senior season in 2019-20, Mcmann was named Colgate’s captain. The honor came after a strong junior campaign during which he served as an assistant captain. Mcmann earned ECAC Hockey Third Team All-league after posting 23 points with eight goals and 15 assists. He was also named the team’s Best Offensive Player.
Prior to Mcmann, the last Colgate player to sign an entry-level NHL contract was Ryan Johnston, who did so with the Montreal Canadians in 2015.
Mcmann graduated from Colgate with a bachelor’s degree in Economics in 2020. He was a fourtime ECACH All-academic Team selection. Local Scores
