Going into regional finals with a losing record didn’t stop the Shores hockey team from bringing home the championship.

“It felt amazing to finally win regional finals after losing last year in overtime,¨ senior goalie Anthony Shrum said. “We were pretty optimistic going into the game, and we were all confident. Others doubted us, but we proved them wrong.¨

They Sailors, who finished with a 13-14-2 record, won the regional final game 4-1 over Marquette.

Only 23 seconds into the game, senior Hunter Meyers scored off an assist from senior Brandon Ledyard to give Shores a 1-0 lead. Just 24 seconds later, Shores increased its lead to 2-0 on a goal from senior Zac Cuthbertson, who was assisted by Meyers.

Later in the period, Ledyard made it 3-0 with the assist going to senior Nick Nawrocki. Marquette made it 3-1 by the end of the period. After a scoreless second period, Ledyard scored his second goal of the game early in the third period with senior Isaiah Bathrick and junior Spencer Anderson picking up assists.

“One of my favorite hockey moments ever, since I started playing, was when we won as a team,” Shrum said. “Winning regionals was a really great experience that we all worked so hard to achieve.”

Even though Shores lost 3-2 against Forest Hills Northern in the quarterfinals, the Sailors were able to play as a team and come together to win as a family.

“The season started off pretty bad, but in the end, we finally started to play as a team and that’s why we started winning games and was able to win regionals,” Shrum said.
