TROY — The Troy hockey team claimed victory in a key league matchup Sunday night during its “Pink in the Rink” game at Hobart Arena, holding off visiting Mason in the final minute for a 4-3 victory.

With the win, Troy improved to 4-5 on the season and 2-1 in Southwest Ohio High School Hockey League Gold Division play.

Ian Kuntz had two goals and two assists in the game, Mike McGuirk had a goal and an assist, Zach Uhlenbrock scored a goal, Austin Strong had two assists and Connor Sexton had one. Goalie Scott Riedel made 14 saves to make the lead stand up in the end. Troy held a 4-2 lead in the final period when Mason scored with roughly a minute to play after pulling its goalie for an extra attacker — but the Trojans were able to hold on from there.

Troy will play in the Dayton Mayor’s Cup Tournament this weekend at South Metro, starting off by facing Beavercreek on Friday.
