BROOKLYN – Brush High took advantage of a rash of second-period West Geauga penalties to break open for four goals on the way to a 10-6 win over the Wolverines in the first round of the Brooklyn High School Christmas Holiday Hockey Tournament that began this morning.


Holding on to a 4-2 lead, Brush was able to skate in a two-man advantage when West G. was first called for double minor penalties that had to be served in succession as opposed to in concurrence and for the duration as opposed to until a goal scored.

During that four-minute span, West G. was hit with two more penalties, all of which translated into three more goals and a 7-3 Arcs lead after two periods.

Andrew Politi followed his earlier goal of the period by scoring the first power-play goal. Linus Glady and Brian Swain followed Politi with the sixth and seventh goals of the game for Brush.

Will Cohen and Marvelle Horton had assists in the four-goal period.


The first period the second game of today’s tournament was almost as high-scoring this morning as the first game’s with five goals scored between the Arcs and Wolverines, Brush holding a slight 3-2 lead after one period. Brooklyn and Lakewood combined for six goals in the first period of the sunrise game earlier this morning.

Brush got the scoring started at 3:49 of the first period on the collaboration of a pair of defensemen with Ed Politi scoring the goal off an assist from fellow back-end guy Alex Toedtman.


West G. tied it at 9:06 with Colin Czehut scoring the goal and Tate Georgevitch and Chase Calabrese assisting.

That started a six-minute scoring barrage. Glady followed with an unassisted goal by at 11:11 to grab the lead back for Brush.

 West G. then tied it at 13:23 with a Pete Bielek goal assisted by Johnny Bolt. Brush got a goal out of Swain at 14:07 to gain the lead going into the intermission.

Glady and Drew Politi assisted on Swain’s lamplighter.

The third was a period that topped the one that started the morning with a six goal barrage by Brooklyn and Lakewood with tourney activities ending with a seven-goal 15-minute outburst by the Arcs and Wolves.

Steve Repas, Georgevitch, Chris Yagour and Czehut tallied for West G. while Glady, Drew Politi and Swain came up with the money shot again for Brush, now 5-4, just three years after enduring a season of getting 10-goal ruled in nearly every game.

Garrett

Garrett played for Harvey High in Painesville and then spent two years at Fort Scott Community College before joining the Jayhawks. In 2008, he helped Ft. Scott to a No 6. national ranking in the JUCO polls. He had two interceptions in ’08 for the Greyhounds and then last year joined KSU halfway through the season and became a starter at defensive back.

After becoming an instant starter last year, he continued this season where he left off at the end of last. Going into the bowl game, Garrett leads Kansas State in tackles with 86, tackles for losses with 13, and in fumbles recovered with two. He is also second in pass break ups with nine and in sacks with three.

For his efforts, Garrett was named the Defensive MVP for the team at the end of the regular season.

Certainly, Garrett will have his eye on Carter, who was the Orangemen’s leading rusher this season with 1,035 yards and seven touchdowns. Gulley was two notches below him with 8.2 yards per carry.

Among non-kickers, Carter led the team in scoring with 42 points.

Factoring his 565 return yards, Gulley finished second on the Orangemen behind Carter in All-purpose yards.

Carter earned All Big East honors this season.


Lakewood overcomes bedridden, ill 

coach, and resilient Brooklyn team 

to win first-round game in the

Canes' Christmas tourney

BROOKLYN – Lakewood High’s hockey team shook off two comeback rallies by Brooklyn to post a 7-5 win in the opening game of the Brooklyn High School Christmas Holiday Hockey Tournament this morning here in the John M. Coyne Recreation Center.

Both teams took their turns having a hot spell in the first period, which went against the grain of the nature of the game of good defense and goaltending as each club posted a “team hat trick” in the first 15 minutes of play.

The ‘Wood got its three goals in a quick cluster, the Rangers taking a 3-0 lead in a matter of 32 seconds.

John Cropper (not to be confused with "Sir John Crapper," whose claim to fame was inventing the modern-day flush toilet and whose real first name was not John)  scored the first one for the Purple and Gold at 2:29 with assists coming from Zak Moran and Nate Henchley.

Richardson

On the ensuing faceoff, the Rangers made it 2-0 with Chris Richardson scoring off a Steve Sorger assist at 2:34.

Sorger then got into the act at 2:57 with Richardson and Brendan Scheel assists to make it 3-0, giving the impression that the tourney hosts might be in for a long tournament.

Long it was – long on comeback juice.

First Mike Coyne scored at 3:44 with a Jake Dawson helper to make it 3-1.

Then the Hurricanes took advantage of a tripping penalty on the Rangers, scoring a power-play goal at 9:12, Adam Csornak doing the goal scoring and Coyne the assisting.

The Canes tied it, 3-3, at 14:46 on one of those late goals, Coyne connecting without an assist.

The defense on both sides tightened up in the second period with both teams scoring only one goal, leaving it tied, 4-4, at the second intermission.


Lakewood answered Brooklyn’s late first-period goal with an early second-period tally, Henchley scoring in the first minute to return the lead to the Rangers, 4-3. Nick Kovach and Cropper assisted.

Just 25 seconds after killing a short-hand situation, the Hurricanes tied it up for the second time with Coyne scoring an unassisted goal at 6:27.


Brooklyn appeared to take its first lead at 9:06 of the second, but an apparent goal was whistled off due to a man-in-the-crease violation.

The Hurricanes then botched a golden opportunity when Lakewood was called for tripping and interference in succession. The Canes had a two-man advantage for 46 seconds, but could not capitalize on it nor the one-man-ads at either end of the extended power-play opportunity.

Kovach, whose sister Chelsea (read about her on S/A-Cleveland in the B Page from Dec., 20,  and A Pages from Dec. 19, Jan. 16 and Jan. 21) is a Division III Student/Athlete for basketball at Hiram College, then put Lakewood ahead for good at 4:58 of the third period.

Richardson scored what eventually turned out to be the game winner at 7:20 of the third.

Brooklyn did turn it into a one-goal game again at 11:01 when Coyne scored again off assists from Csornok and Billy Short, but then an open netter by Kovach with 10 seconds to go sealed it.


Lakewood was coached today by Assistant Coach Mike Wrost after Head Man Josh Dress became ill in the middle of the night. Both Dress and Wrost are former Brooklyn High Student/Athletes in hockey.
