Making a return to the 2019 Flyers Cup Championship, the Ice Hockey team made their second attempt in the school’s history to claim the champion title.

Reaching the net just one time during the game, senior Caden Freer put Hershey on the board with their only goal.

Hershey’s goalie Chris Larkin had 26 saves; however, the Trojans couldn’t slow down the WC Rustin offense.

Hershey fell to their opponent in a tough game with a final score of 1-5.

Ending the season with 20 wins and 4 losses, Hershey Ice Hockey ranked number one with the best record out of the 2019 CPIHL Tier 1 teams.

Hershey’s head coach Jarrod Hill told PA Prep Live, “To go this far says a lot about the boys, how they played, and the effort they put in this year. It’s not the outcome we wanted but, in the end everybody is going to look back and say that was a heck of a run.”
