The Pine-Richland ice hockey team took the top trophy during the St. Margaret Foundation Fall Face-Off Hockey Tournament.

The team won the championship round of the two-week, 16-team competition by beating Greater Latrobe 6-4 at Alpha Ice Complex in Harmar on Sept. 18.

Other teams that competed were Bethel Park, Mars Area, Baldwin, Armstrong, Seneca Valley, Shaler Area, Upper St. Clair, Butler, Canon-McMillan, Franklin Regional, Hampton, Central Catholic, Montour and North Allegheny.

Proceeds from the event help “fill in the gaps with hope” for patients served by St. Margaret Foundation, said foundation President Mary Lee Gannon.

“St. Margaret Foundation is honored to have these fine young athletes from 16 local communities share their time and talent to give hope to our patients,” Gannon said.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
