Kiski Hockey Claims ANC Tournament Title for Third Straight Year
The Cougars used a four goal first period to skate to an opening round victory. Ben Foster scored the first three goals of the game and Kiski never looked back. Billy Gillis finished the game with 25 saves, while Grady Fagan added three goals and Trey Marker one. TJ Spahn, Jason Stewart and Nathan Salaris played very well in front of Gillis. Sophomore Nick Darrington chipped in with two assists.
In the championship game, Ben Crewe made 13 saves in leading the Cougars to a 3-0 victory over the host school, Academy of the New Church. Both teams played a scoreless first period and Ben Foster scored the only goal in the second period on a pass from Nathan Salaris. Kiski came out flying in the third period and scored 50 seconds into the period when Nick Darrington found the back of the net. Jason Stewart, Nathan Salaris and TJ Spahn all played well in front of Crewe. Kiski is now back-to-back-to-back champions at the Academy of the New Church Tournament.
