2014-15 NCHSHL Champs

The Polar Bears captured the North Coast High School Hockey League playoff championship on Sunday with a big 6-3 victory over previously unbeaten Medina.  

On Thursday night, the Bears fell to Medina 4-1 in round three of the playoffs.  Matt Pollock had the lone goal in that game, assisted by Alex Dent and Robert Dysart.  Jackson dropped into the losers' bracket and faced North Royalton on Saturday.  A 2-1 win propelled them into the championship game against Medina.  Jackson goals were scored by Alex Chiples, assisted by Tommy Lundin and Zach Wilson, and Connor Tilstra, assisted by Dysart.   

On Sunday night in front of a big Medina hometown crowd, the Bears jumped out to a 1-0 lead on a power play goal by Dent at 11:38, assisted by Pollock.  Medina tied it up with one goal in the first period.  The Bears added two more in the second period.  Clayton Evans scored with an assist from Tristan Browne, and Pollock scored on a power play, assisted by Wilson and Dent.  The Bears were up 3-1 at the break.  EJ Martzolf put one in unassisted to start the third period.  Medina answered, but then the Bears added two more to go up 6-2 with 4:41 to play.  Zach Blumer scored the first, assisted by Michael Mayle, and Dysart had the other, assisted by Dent. Medina scored at 4:24 to make it 6-3.  Medina went on the power play with three minutes to go and pulled their goalie but were unable to score.  

The Bears are headed to Columbus on Friday to defend the Buckeye Cup.
