Malvern teammates celebrate a goal by Geoff Mucha

March 18, 2005

Class AAA. Malvern Prep ice hockey coach John Graves has used five different goalies over the last five years and his latest, Josh Fierly helped him and the Friars win their fifth straight Flyers Cup last night. Fierly shut out Inter-Ac league rival Germantown Academy over the first two periods and Malvern held on to beat the Patriots, 4-3, for the Class AAA title at the Wachovia Spectrum. The Friars jumped out to a 4-0 lead on goals by Jim Behe, Kevin Huntington, and a pair of goals from Geoff Mucha. Germantown Academy claimed that Fierly was wearing an illegal mask in the third period and he was forced to remove it. The Patriots then rallied for three goals, but it would not be enough.

Haverford Wins Class AA Flyers Cup

Class AA. Haverford High’s Bob MacLaughlin broke a 1-1 tie with a goal in the second period and it sparked the Fords past Council Rock South, 5-1, for the Flyers Cup Class AA ice hockey title at the Skatium in Haverford last night. John Povey added a goal in the second period to give Haverford a 3-1 lead. T.J. Haeberle, who scored in the first period, added a goal in the third period, as did Mark Orlando. The Fords will play in the state tournament Saturday at Hersheypark Arena against either Peters Township or Pine-Richland.
