Saint Louis University High School wins the Challenge Cup 2-1 against CBC thanks to an overtime goal by SLUH's Stephen Lordo.
Saint Louis University High School's Stephen Lordo buried a rebound in the back of the net just more than 3 minutes into overtime and delivered the Junior Billikens their first-ever Mid-States Challenge Cup championship Monday night at Scottrade Center. The goal also stopped CBC from making good on the Cadets' "13 in '13" campaign as a win would have captured CBC's 13th Challenge Cup victory in the year 2013. The game was a rematch of last season's Challenge Cup matchup, which was won by CBC. That loss left bad memories lingering for SLUH's returning players. And Monday they were out for revenge. "Last year left a sour taste in our mouth," said SLUH captain Chase Berger, who helped set up the winning overtime goal by throwing the puck at …

The puck is set to drop in the Challenge Cup championship game between CBC and SLUH at 8 p.m. at Scottrade Center in downtown St. Louis.
When it comes to hockey, hot goaltending win championships. And both teams facing off in Monday's Challenge Cup championship game feel as if they have the best between the pipes.

The St. Louis Blues open the NHL season Saturday at home against the Detroit Red Wings. Is a third lockout in 20 years the last straw for hockey fans?
As fans entered Scottrade Center Sunday for the first St. Louis Blues hockey club's practice following a four month lockout, they were invited to pick up placards with the familiar "Let's Go Blues" cheer. Jack Gillette and his daughter Joanie, of St. Peters, didn't need the freebie. They came prepared with their own sign, designed by Jack's wife Michelle with a slogan that pretty much summed up fan sentiment: "It's About Pucking Time." The team estimates about 5500 fans came out to the free practice Sunday, followed by a Q&A session with players. The fans in the stands talked about the team's new Russian sensation Vladimir Tarasenko, but also how Tom Stillman, the new owner with ties to the Ladue-Frontenac area, was among the first in the …

Absolutely nothing was gained by that long protracted Lock Out.
(For instant news updates follow Patch on Facebook and Twitter.) I, for one am thrilled the National Hockey League Lock Out is over. Thank goodness, we can get back to our “biscuit in the basket” routine now. There will be some more Gus Kyle “barn burners” this winter. Hope springs eternal. Fact is, I know little, if anything about hockey. My eye sight is not the world’s best, but truth be known, I’ve never ever seen a goal be scored. I see a lot of pushing and shoving around the net, and the next moment, the horn is blaring and blinking lights are going off. I suppose viewing from the cheap seats, someone scored. How about lighting their heads? I have a novel idea; why not light the helmets of the players, so when a player scores, their …

This week the Town and Country-Manchester Viewfinder shows you how the Girl Scouts of Carman Trails Elementary brought their fathers to the school Friday night for the troop's annual Daddy-Daughter Dance.
Girl Scouts of Carman Trails Elementary invited their dads to the school Friday night for a Daddy-Daughter dance. The theme of the evening was "Heart of a Champion," so everyone dressed up as their favorite sports, teams or players. Everything from skiing to gymnastics to dancing was represented, along with the standard Cardinals and Rams fans. Chris Hosto, a Cardinals' fan, attended with his 8-year-old daughter, Kristen. "This is the first one that's actually been a lot of fun," he said. "The rest have been princess themed or something, so the dads would just sit around." Take a look at the evening in this week's slideshow.
