12/18 Winter Sports Photo Day
On February 8, 2020, it was the Kenston Bombers senior night for hockey and they were taking on the Orange Lions. The seven seniors that are on the team are Valentino Carriero, Vincent Coniglio, Jason Hildebran, Timothy Matty, Remington Maurer, Viktoria Pozwick, and Peyton Raypholtz. Valentino Carriero is on the state record board for two records – most goals and points in a season. He was named First Team All-Red Division and All-State Honorable Mention. Vincent Coniglio is a four year member of the hockey team. He is going to attend Cuyahoga Community College and enroll in the Fire Academy and Paramedic Program to pursue being a flight medic. Jason Hildebran was named Team MVP in 2018, Hardest Worker in 2019, and is on the OHSAA All-Time list for saves in career and season. Jason has also been named to the Red Division Second Team. Timothy Matty is a four member of the hockey team and is planning to study Natural Resource Management in the fall. Remington Mauer is a three year member of the hockey team and is planning to attend Ohio University next year. Viktoria Pozwick is a first year member of the hockey team and plans to attend Joffrey Ballet School in the fall. Peyton Raypholtz is a two year member of the hockey team and plans to study Mechanical Engineering at Rose Hulman Institute of Technology.
Before the game started, all the players that were not seniors went onto the ice and stood there waiting for the seniors to come out. As the seniors came out, the crowd and students got really loud because the fans knew it was going to be a good game. The students talked to all the seniors and wished them well. As the game started, you could hear the students and parents cheering for their favorite player. After the puck was dropped, Kenston won the faceoff and pushed for the first shot. Kenston missed, but Valentino recovered the puck and put in for a Kenston Bomber goal. That goal started the whole massacre of the Bombers tearing apart the Orange Lions. During the game, Valnetino was able to score seven out of the nine goals for Kenston, the other two goals being scored by Remington. As the game went on, the Lions tried to come back from the 9-0 deficit but they could not score because of the Bombers stellar defense and their amazing goalie Jason Hildebran. The Kenston Bombers came away with a victory on senior night with a shutout over the Orange Lions.
