BLOOMFIELD HILLS — Bloomfield Hills Cranbrook Kingswood exploded for six goals in the second half of a Division 3 regional title game to claim the Cranes fourth straight regional championship with an 8-3 win over Warren De La Salle at Wallace Ice Arena on Saturday.

The Cranes offense was powered by CJ Regula who netted half of his team’s goals including one with the man advantage and one while short handed.

“It feels great (to score),” Regula said, “but it feels even better to win. If I score, I score, but all that matters is that we won.”

The game was tied at two midway through the second period until Joe Sasson and Kyle Gierman assisted on a Blake Johnson to give the Cranes the lead for good. Including Johnson’s tally, Cranbrook would score the game’s next six goals before De La Salle got a third goal with less than a minute left in the game.

“In the second period (De La Salle) hit the crossbar down here and the puck laid in the crease. tkcoach said. “Somehow our guy picked it up out of the crease and we went down and scored. I thought that was the turning point in the game.”

Stephen Friedland made nine saves to earn the win for Cranbrook while Harrison Griffin stopped 22 shots in the Loss for De La Salle.

The Pilots (14-12-0-1) have little reason to hang their heads about finishing with a winning record despite returning just four players from a year ago.

“We only came back with four guys from last year’s team,” De La Salle head coach tkname said. “It was nice for those guys to build up these guys. They were all new guys coming into the MIHL; they were all new guys coming into this league. For those four to take on that leadership role with this young team, I thought it was great. We had a great season.”

Cranbrook (18-10) is the defending Michigan High School Athletic Association Division 3 champion, and advances to the quarterfinals at Farmington Ice Arena where the Cranes will face the winner of Allen Park and Novi Detroit Catholic Central on Wednesday.

“I haven’t seen either play,” Weidenbach said. “I understand Allen Park is 20 and something this year. They’ve only lost one or two games. I not seen them play. I have not seen Country Day play. That doesn’t matter because both teams are formidable opponents, and whichever team wins it’ll be a barn-burner.”

As is often the case with a defending champion, the Cranes have plenty of new faces playing significant roles this year as they graduated 16 players from last year’s squad. After a rough stretch early in the year, Regula credits Weidenbach with getting the team playing well heading into the state tournament.

“(Winning a regional title) shows that you can’t count us out,” Regula said. “At the beginning of the year, we lost 16 seniors, and hats off to coach, a great coach. We were struggling at the start of the year and we listened to what he said. We just had an 8-3 win in a regional final. It says a lot about how he can coach and how we can listen.”
