Holy Ghost Prep-Malvern Prep Matchup A Big Step for the APAC

Wednesday night’s matchup between Malvern Prep and Holy Ghost Prep at the Wells Fargo Center was another step forward in the evolution of the Atlantic Prep Athletic Conference.

The Friars emerged with a 3-2 overtime win in front of a large and enthusiastic audience.

Holy Ghost Prep Athletic Director Jim Stewart spoke with Hockey Happenings Wednesday night and celebrated the evening’s success.

“It’s a great evening,” he said. “It’s a great opportunity for both programs, especially in the first year of the APAC it’s certainly an experience that the kids playing tonight will never forget, having the chance to play on the ice of the Philadelphia Flyers and it says something about the connections that are being made between the schools in the APAC so far. We’re working to give the kids a great opportunity for competition.”

Stewart noted that the vison the four member schools had of what the league should be is, to this point, being realized.

“There has been really good competition,” he said. “We set out to begin this under the leadership of a couple of the coaches at LaSalle and Holy Ghost Prep and we put some goals out of there of what we wanted to achieve this year in terms of ice time, schedule, varsity and JV play, and it has worked out great.”
