February 16, 2011 - Junior Brad Pizzey scored a hat trick and Troy Fasseel guarded the net in a shutout game in the first annual Michigan High School Hockey Invitational Showcase.

Fasseel saved 18 shots from East Kentwood while his teammates scored three of their 33 shots on the net on Saturday.

Two goals came from Austin Morse and one from Zach Gootee.

The boys played against Chelsea on Friday and won 5-3.

Pizzey scored three goals - one per period. Dillon Drayer and Connor Hughes added a goal each.

Freshman Jack Viazanko saved 30 shots and the Wolves made 35 shots on goal.

"It was a good start to the showcase - to an event that reinforces the public schools and the separation of public and private when it gets to playoffs," said Coach Bryan Krygier. "We are making a statement it should be separate. The playing field should be even. Let the private schools play amongst themselves.

"We are retaining our public high school kids in sports. Everytime a student leaves the public school $8,500 walks out of our doors. Why should we support the private schools to take our kids? We should support the public schools and do what is best for our programs. That was what this weekend was about."

The boys play Stoney Creek on Friday in the first game of the OAA tournament, 6 p.m. at the Onyx.

"We were undefeated in our league but Stoney Creek has a tough, good team," said Krygier. "They are well-coached and have an excellent goalie. We have to make sure we play hard every period."

The tournament continues on Saturday with time and opponent to be
