Grosse Pointe South's boys' hockey team entered the state playoffs ready to make a long run.

After all, second-year head coach Bobby McKillop had his Blue Devils on a 15-game winning streak and playing his "style" of tough, gritty hockey.

They were coming off an impressive 3-1 victory over U-D Jesuit, but had to open the Division 2 playoffs with a pre-regional contest against No. 1-ranked Trenton at Wyandotte.


McKillop was right, Trenton was ready to play, but South didn't play its best in a 6-0 loss.

Trenton scored a goal in the first period and dealt the Blue Devils two fatal blows, scoring a goal in the final minute of the second period to take a 2-0 lead and adding a third tally in the first minute of the third period.

South senior goalie Andrew Wright played his final high school hockey game and stopped 21-of-27 shots, while Trenton's keeper, Nick Ramirez, stopped all16 shots he faced to record the shutout.

Grosse Pointe South ended its season 20-4-1.
