With title win, Bryn Mawr turns tables on Holton-Arms

February 25, 2010

Bryn Mawr's 4-2 victory over Holton-Arms in last week's Maryland Scholastic Hockey League title game at The Gardens Icehouse in Laurel was a little more satisfying than other championships.

The reason? Holton-Arms had beaten the Mawrtians in the championship game for four consecutive seasons.

"I think that to finally win was a big relief to a lot of people," Bryn Mawr's Creaghan Peters said. "It was a huge confidence booster and proved they could do what they worked for all year."

Peters and Paris Bienert served as captains on a team that finished the season with an 8-0-1 record en route to its first championship. Bryn Mawr's only tie came against Holton-Arms, but the Mawrtians beat their rivals in another game, so they felt good heading into the championship.

The Mawrtians needed that confidence as they fell behind 2-1 after the first period. But they scored three goals in the second period to take command.

Assistant coach Delbert Adams said the team's earlier success against Holton-Arms gave it a boost.

"It helped us tremendously," said Adams, an assistant to head coach Maureen Walsh. "It gave us the confidence to know that we had the talent to beat them this year."

Jasmine Bazinet-Phillips scored two goals in the title game while Sam McGee (one goal, one assist) and Maggie Cashman (one goal) also pitched in. Cecilia Depman made 16 saves.
