For the first 7:23 of Monday night’s Class AA Penguins Cup semifinal, Bishop Canevin hung around with top seed Erie Cathedral Prep.
But after that, the Ramblers were too strong.
Richard Vicary and Ben Eliason each scored twice as Erie Cathedral Prep took down the Crusaders, 8-2, in a rematch of last season’s Penguins Cup final. Bishop Canevin won last year’s playoff matchup, 1-0.
Eliason equaled the total of goals scored in last year’s final just 48 seconds in, but Bishop Canevin’s Jacob Ondrejko answered a little over two minutes later. The teams traded goals within 20 seconds of each other later in the period, but from then on the Ramblers dominated. Erie Cathedral Prep scored two more goals in the first period and four in the third to pull away for the win.
Bishop Canevin finishes its season 11-10.
