During Saturday’s earlier consolation game, Windsor defeated Mount Saint Joseph by a score of 3-1.

This was the first year that Black River High School did not field a team. Instead, two of their players, seniors Alex Kirdzik and Bowen Stark, played with the Green Mountain team.

Black River High School, the traditional host of the Josh Cole Tournament, is closing in June of 2020. According to BRHS Athletic Director Joe Gurdak, discussions are already underway to have another school host the event so it would continue at Dorsey Park.
