The annual Mayor’s Cup was welcomed back by a rink full of hockey fans after being canceled the last two years due to Covid-19.

“Being out here for the first time in two years is great,” said Mayor Marc Bondy. “There is nothing better than kids getting to play a sport they love with their peers. When I heard the championship was back on I said, ‘I’ll absolutely be there to drop the puck.’ It’s nice to have the players back on the ice and I know the kids were pumped to be able to play too.”

After Breana Lee’s rendition of the National Anthem, Mayor Marc Bondy dropped the ceremonial puck with Captains Ryan Dufour for the Wildcats and Tyler Trealout for the Sabres. The action on the ice matched the ruckus crowd.

Villanova scored the first goal leading the teams in a back-and-forth battle until the Sabres were able to muscle in a goal to tie the game.

Villanova, however, had other plans and scored shortly thereafter to make it 2-1.

Third-period action saw several scoring chances both ways but the Sabres were able to tie it up sending the game into overtime.

Only 23 seconds into overtime, the Sabres scored on an odd angled shot from Adriano Tonin sending the Sabres to a meeting with LaSalle Councillor Mike Akpata who handed the Sabresthe 2022 Mayor’s Cup Championship trophy.
