To say De La Salle’s hockey team had no recent success against Brother Rice prior to Saturday night was quite accurate.

That was until Saturday night.

The Pilots knocked off the Division 2, No. 1-ranked Warriors, 4-1, at Mount Clemens Ice Arena.

“It’s been awhile,” DLS first-year coach Craig Staskowski said. “That’s all I know.”

The Warriors had won by mercy three of the last five meetings with DLS.

The Pilots last beat Brother Rice, 4-1, during the 2010-11 season.

“It was these guys just coming together,” Staskowski said. “They knew what the task and they knew it wasn’t going to be easy. We had four really good days of practice. They weren’t selfish. They weren’t playing for themselves.”

DLS headed into the Christmas break playing its worst game of the season, a 4-0 loss to Trenton.

“It was the total opposite,” Staskowski said. “We played good defensively, we forechecked, we took away their time and space.”

Matthew Pelto scored two goals and goalie Andrew Grewette made 28 saves. Nicholas Aiello and Joe Jenkins (assist) added the other tallies for the Pilots (4-1-0 MIHL South Division, 8-2-1 overall).

The Warriors were also ranked No. 1 in the Super 10, which is the ranking of all teams combined.

The Pilots, who are ranked fifth in Division 3, got assists from Thomas Hernandez, Ollie Bezick, Gregory Pine and Austin Scott.

“We didn’t talk much,” Staskowski said of the Pilots’ loss to Trenton. “We moved on. We were relaxed.

“During break we had a fun scrimmage,” Staskowski added. “We told them when we get back from break we were going to amp it up. We really do feel we have a good team and have a chance of a playoff run.”
