In the ninth annual Knoch Hockey Spring Tournament, the Knoch varsity team salvaged a 2-2 tie and picked up three points against Butler Wednesday night at Belmont Ice Complex in West Kittanning.

Phil Jancosko buried a goal on an assist from Jamie McCandless with 3:32 left in the game to make the score 2-2.

Jancosko was named Knoch’s game MVP.

From the outing, the Knights picked up three points in the postseason tournament – one each for winning the first and third periods and one for getting a tie.

The two teams with the most points in the eight-team varsity tournament will square off in the championship contest, which is set for 6 p.m. Sunday.

Jon Chiplock scored Knoch’s other goal in the first period.

Last year, Butler won the varsity tournament and Knoch finished second.

The freshmen portion of the tournament opens 6:15 tonight with Kittanning taking on Pittsburgh Central Catholic. There are four teams competing for the freshmen title.
