Kiski Hockey Completes Three-peat in I.S.H.L. Championship
Over the past three seasons, Coach Chris Spahn, has helped guide the Varsity Ice Hockey Cougars to a 51-7-3 record. In that time span, the program has claimed three straight regular season I.S.H.L Championships accompanied by three post-season I.S.H.L Championships. The hockey program has claimed three straight Academy of the New Church (ANC) tournament championships. And to close out the list of hardware, the Ice Cougars have claimed two straight Midwest Hockey Championships.
This season, the buzz word continued to be championship, as the Cougars repeated their dominance of the regular season schedule and highly-competitive annual tournaments. The team finished 16-2-1, and in those 2 losses only fell by one goal in each game. The team had an almost unheard of stat, posting 12 shutouts in 19 games, with a streak of 7 straight shutouts during one stretch. Throughout the season, the team played a complete game from offense to defense the Cougars shut down the opposing offense while lighting the lamp with waves of goals. This is reflected by the impressive statistic of 97 goals for (GF) and only 12 goals against (GA). Opponents that fell included teams from Canada, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Ohio, with victories over rivals schools, Shady Side Academy, Linsly, Sewickley, and Western Reserve Academy. By surrendering only a few seniors to attrition the Kiski Varsity Hockey Program is poised to continue their winning ways in the 2018-19 season.
