Nick Hussa scored a goal and assisted on three more as Wissahickon defeated Abington 4-3 Thursday night in the Suburban High School Hockey League American Division championship game at Hatfeld Ice.
It’s the fifth divisional title for the Trojans. They previously won championships in 2006, 2010, 2015, and 2019. A possible sixth championship in 2003 has not been verified.
Wisssahickon (12-1) took the lead on a goal from Bryan Garry 7:11 into the first period. Abington (8-4) drew even when Colin Bruton found the back of the net at the 15:36 mark during a power play.
Wissahickon’s Daniel Glazer and Abington’s Sam Paulik traded goals in the second period before Will Hussa gave Wissahickon the lead for good at the 13:28 mark with an assist from Nick Hussa, who extended the Trojans’ lead when he scored with 2:07 left in the period. Griffin Carpenter scored for Abington remaining in the second session; the third period was scoreless.
Wissahickon will move on to the Class A Flyers Cup and will face sixth-seeded West Chester Henderson next Thursday at Hatfield Ice (7:10).
Thursday’s loss concluded Abington’s season.
Abington 1 2 0—3
Wissahickon 1 3 0—4
