BRIGHTON, Mich. March 12, 2012 – Congratulations to the Brighton Bulldogs Hockey team on their state championship! The Bulldogs had a tremendous season that was capped off by Chet Daavettila’s late championship winning goal against Grosse Point North with only 1:32 left in the third period on Saturday. This was the first state hockey title win for Brighton since the Bulldogs took states in 2006. Jason Fellwock, a BHS alumni who played for the 2006 Bulldogs state championship team was in attendance at Saturday’s game. After the victory, Fellwock told coach Paul Moggach, “Tell them, ‘welcome to the club.’”
|The National Anthem is sung and the Bulldogs have one thing on their mind - Victory
We wanted to express how proud we are of the BHS hockey team. The guys did a great job of representing Brighton throughout the season. These guys have shown great dedication in workouts, at practice, in the classroom, and during games. The Bulldogs went 24-4-2 this season that ended with a nail-biting double-overtime victory over Orchard Lake St. Mary’s in the semi-finals and then the late 3rd period victory over Grosse Point North for the championship.
Enjoy the victory Bulldogs, you deserve it. We’re sure the smiles won’t be fading from their faces for quite some time.
|Congrats on a well deserved championship!
