Portland hockey's biggest success yet with 'City Cup'

By

PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) – Cheverus the boys and girls hockey teams swept Portland for the ‘City Cup’, but both schools could walk away with a win from the fifth annual event.

The double-header at Portland Ice Arena on Wednesday had a record attendance as all the proceeds from the games went to Portland Middle School Hockey, which is the feeder program for both high school teams.

School sponsored hockey for Portland Public Schools is entirely play-for-play, meaning all the ice time, uniforms, equipment, coaches, and referee fees come out of the individuals pocket as opposed to being funded with city tax dollars like other sports in the school system’s athletic budget.

This year’s most outstanding players for each team were presented with the William B. Troubh Awards in honor of the former City Councilor and mayor, who helped develop the Portland Ice Arena. Troubh died in November at the age of 78.

The Stags won the boys contest 8-0 and the girls by a 5-2 final.
