St. John’s captain Andrew Kurowski scored two goals and the Cadets held off a late rally by defending champion Landon to defeat the Bears, 4-2, and win the school’s first MAPHL AA title before a raucous crowd at The Gardens Ice House in Laurel on Friday night.
It was a rematch of the 2020 championship game (the MAPHL cancelled the 2020-21 season because of the COVID-19 pandemic), but with a different winner and the first season since 2009 that the MAPHL’s top flight title was not won be either Landon (five titles) or Gonzaga (six titles).
Kurowski took advantage of a defensive miscue just over six minutes into the game, intercepting a pass directly in front of Landon’s goalkeeper Leo Quattrone and scoring on a nifty move to open the scoring. Andre Serra increased the Cadets’ lead to 2-0 three minutes later with an unassisted, power-play goal.
Kevin Fou got Landon on the board with a power-play strike at 6:30 of the second period. Owen Calderone and Zaakir Khan picked up assists on the play. Just 29 second later, however, St. John’s regained a two-goal lead with Connor Hall scoring the eventual game-winner at 7:59.
It looked as if the two-goal lead would hold up but a mad scramble in front of the Cadets’ net resulted in a penalty shot being awarded to Landon with just 20 seconds remaining in the game. Calderon took full advantage by deking the Cadets netminder Chase Hornbecker and making the score, 3-2.
Landon couldn’t muster the tying goal, with Kurowski capping his sterling performance with an empty net tally with 13 seconds remaining.
The Bears outshot the Cadets, 32-18, with Hornbecker making 30 saves and Quattrone stopping 15.
St. John's Captain Andrew Kurowski holds the MAPHL Cup after scoring two goals in the Cadets' 4-2 victory over Landon.

DeMatha captain Jeremy Wilson drew the Stags even with a power play goal of their own just under four minutes later. Dylan Hendrix and Jay Harwood assisted on the goal.
It appeared the teams would go to the locker rooms at the end of the second period tied, but Grisius scored with 11 seconds to go to put St. John’s up, 2-1. Power play goals by Grisius and Carter Johnson early in the third period extended the Cadets’ lead to 4-1, putting the game out of reach for DeMatha.
With four minutes remaining in the game, Foster scored his second of the game to get the Stags within two goals. But after DeMatha pulled its goalie for an extra attacker to get them within one, Grisius completed his hat trick with an empty net goal with 2:22 left in the game.

Host Mt. St. Joseph and St. John’s squared off in the opening game of the MAPHL season at The Gardens Ice House in Laurel on Monday night and treated fans to a high-scoring affair in the first league action in nearly 20 months.
St. John’s Andrew Kurowski stole the show by kicking off his senior season with a hat trick in the Cadets’ 7-2 victory.
The Gaels took a 2-1 lead into the first intermission after Liam Nilan opened the scoring four minutes, 31 seconds into the game. The Cadets’ Connor Hall tied the score at 6:43 before EJ Goveia gave the Gaels its last lead of the game.
Kurowski struck just 21 seconds into the second period to tie the score and start the Cadets’ string of six unanswered goals. John Carney notched the eventual game-winner on the power-play nearly six and a half minutes later and the rout was on. Kurowski completed his hat trick with consecutive goals—including a highlight reel tally that saw the Cadets’ captain burst around two defenders, go forehand to backhand and flip the puck past Gaels’ goalie Matt Pistner—before the second period was over. Charlie Benjamin and Reilly Doherty tallied goals in the third period to complete the scoring.
Chase Hornebecker made 23 saves on 25 shots on goal for St. John’s, while Pistner faced 38 shots, making 31 saves.
