When the Grimsby Peach Kings doubled Woodstock in the Ontario Hockey Federation championship game last weekend 4-2, it capped a 25-0 playoff run.
It also marked the first time a Grimsby team earned such a championship.
“We knew at the start of the year we had a chance to go all the way. It was a lot of pressure,” said coach John DeTullio.
“Opportunities don’t come along like that every day. It was a great season.”
The squad breezed through the five-team round robin, meeting Woodstock again, which gave them their closest test of the tourney earlier, a 3-2 Grimsby win. “The kids and coaches are looking forward to raising the championship banner some time next season,” DeTullio said.
Team members: Ben Carmosino, Luke Davidson, Ewen Russell, AJ Scocchia, Anson Davis, Jayden Talsma, Ethan Brown, Liam Boverof, Owen DeTullio, Noah Porter, Nikolas Klemencic, Ethan Mercer, Mason Gibson, Gavin MacIntyre, Hunter Oakley, Joel Chauvin, Brendan Kowaleski, Chase Grsic. The team was coached by: head coach John DeTullio, assistants Pat Principi and Craig Brown, trainer Peter Humphrey and manager Joe Porter.
