Columbus, Ohio – Athens Varsity goes undefeated in four games to claim the 2010 Blue Jackets Cup! The Bobcats were off to a rocky start as they faced Northeast Storm in the first game of the tournament. Northeast was up by three seven minutes into play. The tide turned at the end of the first period as Athens Senior, Alex Gates, scored on a power play assisted by Pierce Reeves. The momentum continued as Kyle Dean found the net with help from Ryan Donnelly. Henry Smith tied the game with a beautiful short-handed goal bringing the score 3-3.

The Storm scored again in the 3rd period to take the lead but Bobcats Captain, Kevin Deal, responded with another goal three seconds later assisted by Smith. Northeast scored once again to take the lead with eight minutes left in the game. The outcome was looking bleak as the Bobcats worked hard but weren't able to score. Coach Jim Caesar pulled Goalie, Alex Monterosso, with 1:30 remaining in the game and Kevin Deal took advantage of the extra man to score again with just seconds left to tie the game 5-5. Five minutes were added to the clock for sudden death overtime and both teams fought hard to break the tie but the clock expired. It was an NHL-like atmosphere as both teams prepared for a shootout; Athens came out on top to win 6-5 with a goal from Senior, Kyle Dean. Read More
