The Warriors Hockey Club concluded their season at the Illinois High School State Championships, held at the United Center, on March 24. The combined Waubonsie and Metea team fought hard against the Buffalo Grove, Hershey, and Wheeling team but eventually lost, losing 2-7. Alex Wilder scored in the second and Zach Lyons scored the team’s second point in the third period.

 

“I could not be more proud of my team and how they worked in the last two months to achieve a goal we’ve dreamed about since we were little. I think we performed as well as we could and in the end, we just got beat by the better team,” varsity assistant captain sophomore Zachary Pearce said.

 

Varsity ended its regular season with a record of 18-7, and JV finished with a 11-13 in the West Division. Zachary Pearce and Cade Kenyon were selected as All-Conference players, and Jack Flood and Zachary Stobert were awarded Varsity Top Line.  

 

“We were able to push each other to do better in practice to be able to try and reach our goal of making it to the United Center,” Pearce said.

 

One of the team’s biggest strengths has always been its teamwork. Because their success this season, hopes are high for next year. The pressure is on for the returning players to continue to improve and grow as a program.

 

“I’m looking forward to another shot at going far and just playing in general,” junior Christopher Kiefer said.

    Maybe you should get quotes from people who actually played in the game, not on JV.

    Metea athletics should put more money into teams like this that actually make it to state, instead of our football team which has gone like 1-4,000 for the last 3 seasons. Hardly anybody knew this game was happening, but people still turn up to see our football team get crushed.
