Algonquin coach Andy McGowan and captains Joe Sullivan, Alex DiPaduo, Mike Tascione and Justin O’Connell receive their trophy.

Boston – There were telltale signs along the way that pointed to this season being memorable, more so than all heretofore, for the Algonquin Regional High boys varsity ice hockey team.

The first glimpse as to what was to come has been seen by many as coming at the 9:47 mark of a scoreless double-overtime back on Dec. 19 in the finals of the annual Borough’s Cup tournament. That’s when senior co-captain forward Justin O’Connell ended it all in dramatic fashion scoring the only goal of the contest to seal the title, the team’s first crown since 1997, that jump started things for the Tomahawk skaters.
