·        Yesterday the boys hockey team played arch rival Belle River in the regular season finale.  The team came out flat, and Belle River scored on the opening shift of the game.  Belle River scored again before the first period ended to go up 2 zip.  Villanova rallied and slowly took control of the game lead by two goals by Cory Burns.  With 5 minutes to go, Jacob Damico scored on a break away for the go ahead goal.  The victory clinched first place, and bragging rights over Belle River.
