Cats win Tam-o International

by Coach Elliott on December 23, 2006

The Northview Wildcats Captured the Tam-O-Shanter International Tournament with an impressive 4-1 win over St. Francis on Saturday December 23rd. The title game was a rematch of Thursday’s game in which the Knights came away with a 3-1 victory.

In the first contest the Cats were outworked for a majority of the game. They kept the game close on a goal by Matt Cook and solid goaltending from Craig Trego. However St. Francis put the game away with an empty net goal late in the third as the Cats just missed on a couple of quality scoring opportunity.

Friday Evening the Cats rebounded with a 6-1 victory over Gilmour Academy. A hat trick from Freshman George Wilkinson, 2 goals from Carter Bourland and a single goal by Matt Cook provided the offense, while Trego turned away 22 of 23 shots for the victory.

Saturday morning the Cats faced off against Upper Arlington. Matt Cook took a turn with a hat trick of his own and Brandon Snead also scored in the 4-2 win.

2 victories put the Cats into a Championship game rematch with St. Francis. After a Captains only meeting led by Senior Jon Hymore, the Cats played perhaps 1 of their finest games of the season. Tyler Puhl got the Cats on the board with a power play goal near the end of the 1st. St. Francis would tie it before Brandon Snead scored what would be the eventual game winner near the end of the second. Brent Bain and Wilkinson scored insurance goals in the third to give the Cats the title 4-1.

The Cats will travel to Trinity for the Christmas Invitational on December 28th through the 30th.
