MALVERN WINS TDSB GIRLS HOCKEY TITLE FOR FIRST TIME IN RECENT MEMORY

Malvern G Hockey

The wait is over.

The girl’s hockey team at Malvern Collegiate, cheered on by a boisterous crowd of supporters, left Ted Reeve arena with what they wanted so badly – a championship.

It was a big one, too.

Malvern skated off with a 6-2 victory over Northern Secondary in the Tier One championship game culminating a season that almost didn’t happen because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic concerns.

For Malvern, it was the first girls’ hockey title in recent memory.

Celena Mickevicius, a grade 11 forward and one of the elite skaters on the Malvern squad, likes odd numbers. She scored the first, third and fifth goals – including what turned out to be the winner.

Madison Tiro, who graduates this year, scored twice for Malvern and grade 9 rookie Morgan Lille also had a goal. For Northern, Zoe Thomson and Stella Novakova beat Malvern grade 10 goalie Rachel Aziz.

Malvern led 3-0 after the opening period and 4-1 after two periods.

“It was a great ending in what has been a tough and challenging year for everyone,” said Malvern teacher coach Janet Davies. “The return to sports was great and this was quite refreshing in that a complete team was able to enjoy in the celebration.”

Ted Reeve arena is located just blocks away from Malvern, and it ended up being a place where several hundred students were able to attend the game. All had permission from the school administration and approvals from their parents.

“This was the first opportunity for our students, as spectators, to cheer on a team and the victory was amazing,” said Sandy Kaskens, Malvern’s principal. “I am confident that we will have an end of the school year celebration for all student athletes.”

At the conclusion of a shortened season, Malvern, Northern and Leaside had all tied for first place with the league having to differentiate placings on a goals-for basis. Malvern went on to beat Leaside 5-0 in the semifinal to make up for a 4-3 loss to the same school, in season action. Northern advanced to the final with a 4-1 win over York Mills.

In the Tier Two final, East York defeated R.H. King, 3-2. East York had blanked Sir John A. Macdonald 5-0 in a semifinal while King squeezed by North Toronto, 2-1.
