St. Sebastian's varsity hockey team competed in the 24th Annual Travis Roy Cup on Saturday, January 18th at Tabor Academy. After a back-and-forth affair throughout, the game was finally decided by a Liam Connors power play goal with only 41 seconds remaining in the game.
Timmy Delay opened the scoring during a power play off a nice feed from Connors as the Arrows grabbed an early lead. Tabor responded late in the first period off a great individual effort to tie the score 1-1. In the middle frame, the Arrows scored twice to take a 3-2 lead into the third period. Delay struck once again before Brendan Dumas and Connor Joyce connected on an outstanding goal late in the period. Tabor pushed back once again and tied the score at 3 as both teams exchanged opportunities throughout the period. With only 3 minutes to play St. Sebastian's was called for a penalty but the Arrows stymied Tabor before getting an opportunity of their own with 52 seconds remaining in the game. A point shot from Joyce ricocheted off the goalie's pad directly to Connors and he didn't hesitate as he scored another goal. Dumas added an empty net goal to seal the game and claim the Travis Roy Cup.
The Travis Roy Cup is played every year to honor Travis (a 1995 Tabor Academy graduate) and his contributions to prep school hockey, as well as to raise money for the Travis Roy Foundation, which is dedicated to enhancing the lives of individuals with spinal cord injuries and their families.
