Malvern Collegiate split a pair of outdoor hockey games with the visitors from Northern Secondary School during the second annual Malvern Winter Classic played at the Kew Gardens rink on the afternoon of Friday, Feb. 22.

The Malvern Black Knights Junior team beat Northern 3-2 in an entertaining tilt that needed a shootout to determine the victor.

Malvern’s goals in regulation time were notched by Nathan Turner and Matthew Shinozaki.

In the shootout, Eric Fode, Quinn Plaxton and Jack Waslen lit the lamp for the Black Knights.

Owen Taylor, who was in net for the Juniors in the shootout, did an outstanding job of frustrating the Northern shooters to secure the win.

In the Senior game, the visitors from Northern edged Malvern 4-3.

Black Knights goals were scored by Jake Hasse, Tanner Sanford and Leo Chambers.
