The Mentor High School hockey team has started off their season hot.
The Cardinals were 4-0 in the Adam Hamilton Memorial Tournament last weekend, pulling their record up to 6-2.
Their tournament sweep included a 5-2 win over Chagrin Falls, an 8-3 victory over Solon and a pair of wins (3-2 in overtime and 5-1 in the tournament final) against Kent Roosevelt.
Jimmy Wallette led in scoring for the Cardinals with eight goals and three assists during the tournament.
Jacob Fisher, Nikita Goldman, Ryan Posipanka, Andrew Cannata and Brady Kloss each notched four or more points during the tournament also.
However, Head Coach Paul McKito stressed it was a team effort that earned them the trophy.
"Jimmy puts the puck in the net but everybody played great," McKito said. "Our goaltenders (Connor Brittain and Johnny Hagan) played well. It was a great collective effort."
The Cardinals hope to keep their momentum going this weekend. They begin divisional play against Hudson at 6 p.m. this Friday at the Mentor Ice Arena.
Friday will also be Youth Night and the Mentor High Blueline Club will have certificates for youth players and other activities including hockey coloring, chuck-a-puck and giveaways.
Tickets to the game cost $6 for adults.
