Delmont –

A year ago, Fenwick became the first out of town school to participate in the Pa Hockey Scholastic Showcase’s 11year history. The Friars fell short losing to Bethel Park 4-3 in the 2005 Semi-Finals. Prairie Ridge took the quest one step further defeating a solid Upper Arlington team in overtime 4-3. The Wolves would face a Cinderella effort of Quaker Valley, who defeated Bethel Park, giving the Hawks their first preliminary round loss in 8 appearances and then defeating a red-hot Class AA Franklin Regional club in double overtime.

Prairie Ridge went for the jugular in the opening period pummeling Zac Zinger and the Quaker defense with 20 shots in the opening stanza. Sean Hogan’s shot from the point snuck through a maze of bodies and behind Zinger at 7:22 of the 1st period. Quaker Valley was able to convert on one of it’s 6 shots as Colin South scored on the power play with 5:14 remaining in the period.

The Wolves from Crystal Lake, Illinois would not be denied in the second period as the continued the onslaught with 18 more shots in the middle frame. The duo of Jon Rowell and Cam Comeaux led the way as Rowell scored at 9:09 of the period and then Comeaux provided the big insurance goal wit 5:04 to go.

As Prairie Ridge entered the third period and Quaker Valley ran out of gas only managing 14 shots on Marcelo Jorge as the total on Zac Zinger reached 40 for the Wolves. The defensive tandem led by Zack Gadomski, Sean Hogan, Steven Gadd, Tyler Benson, Kyle Kehoe and Kevin Engledow smothered the Quakers and would not let them get close to Marcelo Jorge. Doug Kaminsky at 9:50 and Pat Houk with just :12 left capped off an impressive 5-1 victory for Prairie Ridge as they came to Western Pa and captured the Director’s Cup with an impressive win against some of Western Pa’s and Ohio’s best. Congratulations to Casey Van Damme and Prairie Ridge and as quoted from someone who has been the Showcase a long time ‘a true class act and deserved champions’
