The Oswego Clearview Squirt hockey team traveled to SUNY Morrisville recently to compete in the season-ending John Abbott Memorial (JAM) Tournament.
The team capped off a successful 21-13-4 year by making it to the tournament championship, before falling to Camillus 1 by the score of 2-0.
The Oswego Squirts defeated Camillus 2 5-1, defeated Fulton 4-1, lost to Valley 6-1, and defeated Camillus 1 2-1 to garner a tournament high 12.5 points in the five-point scoring system to advance to the championship.
“Our coaches couldn’t be more proud of the way our team played in this tournament and throughout the season,” Oswego Head Coach Eric Koproski said of his team. “The strides that these kids made and the work ethic they showed in every game and practice were tremendous.”
According to Koproski, Oswego defeated both Camillus teams in the tournament after going winless (combined 0-4) against those teams during the regular season.
The Oswego Squirts’ balanced scoring attack and goaltending by Tyler Wallace led the team throughout the weekend.
In its first game against Camillus 2, Oswego received four goals from forward Nick Burnett, and one from Andrew Noyes, to secure the first round 5-1 win.
Oswego scored the first four goals of the game and Tyler Wallace made 17 saves in the win. Clearview forwards Spencer Stepien, Jeremy Susino, Jack Stephens, Spencer and Alex Koproski each had two assists in the contest. Mason Bricker added one assist
