Neuqua Valley took a break from the Illinois West Cup Final for its second round matchup in the Blackhawk Cup against New Trier Green. Neuqua Valley started the game without its starting goalie and that is not what you want against this Trevians offense. Fortunately, the Wildcats got on the board first, Kevin Wik from the point got help from a screen by the defenseman. Trevians responded quickly, John Huber tied it up just three minutes into the game.
Brandon Boies in net to start the second down 3-1, but New Trier able to put three more on the Wildcats in the period including two shorthanded goals. John Huber scored a hat trick in the 7-1 win for the Trevians. Neuqua Valley falls out of the Blackhawk Cup, but still has the championship game of the Illinois West Cup still to play against York.
