Southern Loses 2-0 To Jackson In Handchen Cup Final


WALL - The Southern Regional Ice Hockey team lost a heartbreaking 2-0 contest to Jackson Memorial in the Handchen Cup tournament final at Jersey Shore Arena on Thursday.

Nick Swain scored both goals for Jackson.   This was Jackson Memorial's first Handchen Cup title.   Southern ran into a team playing with great momentum.  On Tuesday, Jackson scored a shocking 4-1 victory over top-seeded Middletown South in the semifinals.  It seems that some teams get hot at just the right time and that seems to be the situation with the Jaguar squad.  

It was a tough loss, now Southern must regroup and set their sight on the upcoming Public A Tournament.
