Cats Improve to 12-0 with Tam-o-Shanter International Tournament Championship

by Coach Elliott on December 18, 2005

Northview improved to 12-0 with 4 wins in the Tam-o-Shanter International Tournament. The victories included a 10-2 victory over Amherst and then three straight shutouts 10-0, 6-0, and 5-0 over Perrysburgh, Hudson and St. Francis.

The First game would see the cats get a bunch of firsts. Greg Carlson would see his first Varsity action and Nic Saenz and Kyle Hymore would get their first goals as members of the Wildcats. Matt Revard and Mike Moyer would also join the cats for the weekend as a host of players lit the lamp. Tim Hurts’ 3 goals along with Cody Bourlands pair and single markers from Hirschfeld, Lavoy, and M. Cook would finish of Amherst. Bobby Mac picked up the win in goal.

In the second game Saturday morning the Cats would take on Perrysburg. Both teams looked asleep in warm-ups before Northview would wakeup for 7 first period goals. Hirschfeld provided the coffee with the first 4 goals of the game before Bourland’s 3, Zac Pizza, Thomas Montieth, and Tyler Puhl’s goals would finish off the Yellow Jackets.

All but assured of a spot in the final on Sunday afternoon the Cats would face Hudson on Saturday night. Bourland continued his torrid weekend with the first 2 goals of the game. Erik Lavoy, Thanasiu, Hirschfeld and M. Cook would all score in the 6-0 final. Craig Trego decided zero for Saturday would be the theme as he posted back-to-back shutouts for the cats. He has now run his record to 6-0 with an impressive 1.00 GAA and 3 shutouts.

Sunday afternoon the Wildcats would take on a very strong St. Francis team, who was fresh off an 8-1 drubbing of BG last weekend. The Cats looked impressive however as the played a disciplined game. An early power play goal by Tim Hurst gave the Cats a 1-0 lead after 1. Lavoys rocket early in the second period extended the lead to 2-0 before Hirschfelds breakaway goal gave Northview a 3-0 lead after 2. Bourland tipped home a shot from Lavoy on the power play and Thanasiu finished off the Knights with his rising wrist shot from just inside the blue line. Bobby McElheney played possibly his finest game in 2 years as he made numerous big saves for the shutout. Northview now has 6th shutouts on the year and 3 in a row.
