Behind magnificent goaltending by Nolan Harner (38 saves on 40 shots) and offensive production from Todd Griffiths and Anthony Long (2 goals each), the Cedar Crest Falcons defeated the previously top-ranked West Shore squad 5-2 to win the Viola Cup!
It was a tough ending for a West Shore team that quickly advanced to the finals, and should not take away from their accomplishments on what was an excellent season.
Congratulations to the Falcons - the 2020 CPIHL Viola Cup Champions!
It's doesn't get much more thrilling than this one! The Central Dauphin Rams won the Bear Cup in dramatic fashion when William Hershey scored in overtime to defeat the Hershey Trojans 4-3.
The Trojans jumped out to an early 2-0 lead with goals by Toby Kauffman and Jason Rippon. But three 2nd-period CD goals (Dorman, Kiely, Smith) gave the Rams a 3-2 lead heading to the 3rd period.
A late 3rd period power play goal by Cole Buchanan led to overtime and William Hershey's heroics.
Once again CD goaltender Evan Petras was stellar in net, stopping 28 of 31 shots. In fact, Hershey outshot CD 31-20, however, Petras kept the Rams in the game with timely saves throughout.
Congratulations to the Hershey Trojans on another outstanding season, but this year the Bears Cup goes to the Central Dauphin Rams!
