EYH 18U-C Bruins win MHL Championship
Sunday March 17, 2019:
The EYH 18U-C Bruins completed their season with an upset victory over the KVHA 18U-C Tornadoes. The EYH Bruins were the only team to beat the Tornadoes during regular season play and proved it was no fluke by going to the Kent Ice Center and beating the Tornadoes on their home ice. The Bruins were down 3 to 1 after the 1st period. The Bruins scored their second goal to make the score 3 to 2 at the end of the 2nd period. The EYH Bruins completed their comeback with a three goal 3rd period to win the game 5 to 3. The EYH Bruins had a balanced team attack with 5 different players scoring the team's 5 goals. Jeromy Leonard lead the team with 1 goal and 2 assists for 3 points. Both Jeffrey Andrews and Ryan Luczak had 1 goal and 1 assist for 2 points each. Jeffrey Andrews scored the game winning goal with 1:36 remaining in the 3rd period. Goalie Jack Tombs shut down the Tornadoes for the final 2 periods to help secure the team championship. Congratulations to the team and coaches Bill Eriksen and Michael Andrews on this championship!
