(PERNS) – Last night Team HRV brought the championship home where it belongs – in the arms of the Hamilton Croatia hockey team. The undermanned HRV won convincingly over the feisty Blackhawks 7-1. With the final played on Easter Sunday some players had other obligations. “We all had family functions but HRV blood is thick, and it’s very important the guys who showed up”, said HRV centre Davo Stipancic. Tomo Dragicevic could not have hand-picked a better day to break out of his scoring slump. He was the key factor all day as he tallied 8 goals in Sunday’s two games, including a hat-trick in the final. After the game, HRV players just wanted to thank Josipa for letting him play! Netminder Johno Maras was his steady self and played an outstanding tournament. He played his finest in the game that mattered most, coming up with key saves at clutch moments of the final. Davo and brother Jayzo Stipancic, Dano Ribaric and Victo Mair rounded out the scoring for the HRV who built up a 5-1 lead before adding two short-handed goals in the third. And that wraps up another winter of the NERVE, the NERVE for HRV
