Quaker Valley, Mars to meet again for hockey championship

Written by Ryan Riordan on .

When Quaker Valley (24-0) and Mars (19-3-1) met last season in the PIHL Class A Penguins Cup championship game, it was the Quakers who were trying to stop a Planets’ streak.

On Wednesday, the roles will be reversed.

Quaker Valley defeated Mars, 4-2, to win the Cup title last season, stopping the Planets run of three straight championships.

Now Mars will try end Quaker Valley’s 45-game unbeaten streak, a run that dates back to 2011.

The last loss for Quaker Valley was Nov. 3, 2011, a 4-3 setback against, of course, the Planets.

Quaker Valley also beat Mars in the 2008 Penguins Cup final.

This season, the Quakers beat Mars, 5-2 and 4-0.
