WARWICK â€“ Mount St. Charles suffered another tough Division I loss on Saturday night, losing a 3-2 decision to unbeaten Bishop Hendricken.
Dave Mitchell netted a power-play goal with 3:48 left in the game to break the tie and improve the Hawksâ€™ league record to 8-0-1. Four-time defending state champion Mount fell to 4-4.
Hendricken took a 1-0 lead in the first period when senior forward Robert Beuhrer beat Mount goalie Brian Larence. Mount tied the game late in the second period on a goal by Brandon Borges.
CUMBERLAND â€“ It was a strange kind of tournament for Cumberland, which easily clinched the John D. Gorman Memorial team title before the finals began on Saturday night, then saw its first four finalists lose before unbeaten Tom LaCroix salvaged some Clipper pride with a convincing win at 195 pounds.
Lincoln High heavyweight Nick Zicuis capped the tournament with a 3-2 victory in the 285-pound finals, scoring a late takedown to edge Durfee Highâ€™s Andre Torres.

CUMBERLAND â€” For 22 straight years, Bishop Hendricken has worn the crown and this season it doesnâ€™t seem like that will change.
La Salle Academy has dominated the girlsâ€™ side the past four years and an equally-strong squad has returned for the winter campaign.
It will be difficult once again to knock the two powerhouses from their perches at the state meet next month.
The restâ€¦itâ€™s anybodyâ€™s guess?
