MT. CLEMENS - Mitch Morris’ second goal of the season gave Novi Detroit Catholic Central a nice send-off to Canada.

Morris scored an unassisted goal 21 seconds into the third period to lead to Catholic Central to a 4-2 Michigan Interscholastic Hockey League victory over Warren De La Salle on Wednesday night.

Morris, who at 145 pounds is the lightest player on the Shamrocks’ roster, broke a 2-2 tie and Jared Lee added an insurance goal about 13 minutes later as Catholic Central improved its record to 5-1-1 in the MIHL and 7-1-1 overall before the team embarks on a weekend trip to Toronto.

“There was a faceoff win, I saw the puck and just tapped it in,” Morris, a sophomore, said of his goal. “It was big win for us, especially on the road.

“It was a difficult game. They fought hard, but we fought a little bit harder.”

Catholic Central, ranked No. 1 in the state in Division 1, will play two games in Toronto this weekend.

Gregory Pine had two goals for De La Salle, but the Pilots fell to 4-2-1 and 8-3-1 by losing their first game after knocking off Brother Rice. The Warriors are ranked No. 2 in Division 2 and have a victory over Catholic Central this season.

“I thought we were a step behind the whole game,” Pilots coach Craig Staskowski said. “We didn’t put much pressure on them.

“Some of the things we did well against Brother Rice weren’t there tonight.”

Lee scored with 3:13 left to give the Shamrocks a two-goal cushion. Nicco Zervos and Patrick Brandemihl assisted on Lee’s goal.

De La Salle was unable to score during a five-minute power play that started in the second period and carried over for 32 seconds into the third.

A Shamrock was called for a major penalty for cross-checking Thomas Hernandez, who had one of the De La Salle assists.

Hernandez was helped from the ice after he was injured with 4:28 left in the second period, and Staskowski said the senior forward might be “out for a while.”

Pine’s second goal of the second period tied the game 2-2.

Pine’s even-strength goal off an assist by Josh Goyk created the tie with 4:56 left in the period, and it followed consecutive goals by the Shamrocks.

Ryan Hausman and Zach Sprys-Tellner scored less than three minutes apart to push Catholic Central into a 2-1 lead after Pine had opened the scoring with an even-strength goal.

Sprys-Tellner, who was called for a pair of minor penalties in the first period, got the Shamrocks on the board at 7:57 of the second when he converted an assist from Brendan West while Catholic Central had a man advantage.

Hausman, a junior defenseman, scored an even-strength goal at 10:35 off an assist by Carter Korpi.

De La Salle, ranked No. 3 in Division 3, had three power-play opportunities and Catholic Central one in a scoreless first period.
