Chick Kelly picks up an assist on a Jeff Spcencer goal early in the second period of the Flyers Cup

April 3, 1987

Jeff Spencer scored two goals and Steve Kinsley added a goal and two assists to lead Malvern Prep to a 5-3 win over Conestoga for the Flyers Cup Scholastic Ice Hockey Championship last night at the Havertown Skatium. Malvern, which had lost to Conestoga during last year’s championship, came out playing physical and opened up a three-goal lead in the first period. Kinsley scored first for the Friars, 4 minutes, 13 seconds into the game. He converted a Matt Lannen pass from the corner, beating Pioneers goaltender Scott Graham on a low shot from the slot. Spencer tallied the first of his two goals with just under three minutes left in the period, making it a 2-0 game. Chic Kelly was credited with an assist on the goal. The Friars pushed the lead to 3-0 in the period’s final minute on a score by Mike Tordone. The second period saw Malvern extend its lead to 4-0. Al Tedesco scored on a two-on-one, with the pass coming from Kinsley. Conestoga got on the board on a power-play goal by defenseman Geor die Shaw 4:08 into the period. Kinsley was awarded the Bobby Clarke Trophy as the tournament’s MVP. Kinsley led all scorers, with six goals and three assists.
