Rust Cup Tournament Champs!

In front of a huge home crowd during Winter Family Weekend on Saturday, Feb. 24, Varsity B Boys’ Hockey captured the championship title in the 2018 Bob Rust Cup Tournament with an 8-3 win over Berkshire. Paving their way to the big game, the Penguins avenged an earlier season loss to Salisbury with a solid 4-1 victory in the first round of tournament play the day before.
In the championship game, the Pens faced a lot of adversity in the first period with injuries, rule violations, equipment issues, and penalties as they traded goals with Berkshire to make the score 2-2 after the first period on goals by Luke Kowalka and Jake Murphy. In the second period, Bennet Blake scored two big goals and junior goalie Charlie Krebs made timely saves to give the Pens a 4-2 lead heading into the third. The boys came out buzzing in the third with Holden Fry scoring three goals and John Lessard adding another goal to give CA the solid 8-3 win. The line of Holden Fry, Jake Murphy, and Bennet Blake was dominant all weekend. Those three, along with goalie Charlie Krebs and defenseman Gino Bastone, were named to the All-Tournament Team. Bennet Blake was named Tournament MVP. It was a very special weekend for the VB boys and everyone on the roster contributed to the victory! The players truly became a family and ended the season on an eight-game win streak! They should all be proud of what they accomplished this season!
