Keller Varsity Silver defeats Arlington Martin 9-3 to win the State Championship!
Keller Varsity Silver defeats Arlington Martin 9-3 to win the State Championship! A hard fought three-game series culminated in a victory for Keller Hockey.
Friday night's game against Midlothian set the tone, with good hits, great team play and outstanding goaltending. The Jaguars fell to Keller 4-0, but it was not an easy game. The team went into the 2nd Period intermission with a 2-0 lead, but came out ready to finish the game and took care of business.
Game 2 against cross-town rivals Highland Park promised to be difficult and it was a 45 minute battle between two very evenly matched teams. Jaren Jones set the pace with a hat trick before the end of the 2nd Period, and the team stayed disciplined and only received three penalties in the entire game. A late game flurry of action put Highland Park on the board with a final score of 5-2.
Game three brought Keller and Martin together for their final season matchup. Scoring was evenly spread with 9 goals by 6 players, with the first goal only 30 seconds into the game. Cameron Edwards got a defensive hat trick,and good defense and more great goaltending held Martin to only 3 goals.
Overall, a very good finish for the boys and reflective of their hard work all season. Congratulations!
