With 12 Super 8 titles heading into the 2008- 09 season, Catholic Memorial was the king of the MIAAs most elite hockey tournament. But something was wrong. The Knights hadnt won the title since 2005, a streak that no one was happy about on Baker Street. But after beating Burlington, 5-1, in the final at the Garden, order is restored. CM is back on top. It was a tough year, physically and emotionally, said coach Bill Hanson. I cant enough about what they accomplished. TJ OBrien will never forget the end to his season. A hat trick at the Garden doesnt happen every day.
