This past Saturday, March 4, the South boys Varsity Hockey team played in the regional championship game against Brother Rice at Oak Park Ice Arena.

 

“For us to compete as one of the top teams in the state, I mean what a year we had,” Head Coach, Robert McKillop, said.

 

The first period was played intensely by the two teams with both teams wanting to score the first goal. Brother Rice took the lead and by the second period scored another two goals, leaving them in the lead with a total score of 3-0. After the blue devils were down by that much, they kicked it up and scored two consecutive goals back-to-back within 30 seconds of each other.

 

“We showed some heart coming back from 3-0 deficit,” player Drew Maccagnone ‘19 said.

 

After those two goals were scored, the entire atmosphere of the game changed and made the outcome less predictable. By the end of the game, three more goals were scored by Brother Rice, but only one by South.

 

“They scored that fourth goal to make it 4-2 and change the game,” McKillop said.

 

Despite the 6-4 loss for South, the players and head coach still thought that they played a good game.

 

“We worked hard, that’s all you can ask,” Bradley Burdick ’20 said.

 

Although they lost this game, the team does not think that this game represents how well they did this season.
“We had a great year, we had 21 wins and for us to compete against the top teams in the state, I mean what a year we had,” McKillop said.
