When teams from the PIHL take to the ice at the Penguins Pond at Station Square, it allows them to go head-to-head in a unique setting.

Chartiers Valley made the most of its outdoor appearance.

The Colts rolled to a 9-2 win last week over Moon, recording two more points in the tight PIHL Class AA standings.

Chartiers Valley didn't take long to score as Rich Monti found the net off an asset from Tyler Stevenson just more than a minute into the game. From there, it was all about the Colts.

Cullen McMahon completed his hat trick in the first period — two goals on power-play opportunities —and Stevenson added one of his own as the Colts led, 5-1, after the first frame.

Kevin Kocak pushed the lead to five when he found the net early in the second period. Anthony Franks scored three straight goals — one off the power play and another unassisted — from the second period into the third to round out the Colts' scoring.

Franks led the team with seven points. McMahon added five, Stevenson finished with a goal and two assists.

The Colts outshot the Tigers, 37-18.

The win — along with a 5-4 victory over Pine-Richland —gave the Colts 17 points. That is second to only Bishop Canevin's 18 in the PIHL Class AA standings. The Section 2-AA rivals played earlier this season, and the Crusaders won, 6-5. The teams are scheduled to face off again Feb. 11.

Chartiers Valley also claimed the top spot in individual points as McMahon and Franks are tied for first with 39. McMahon has 27 goals and 12 assists, and Franks has 19 goals and 20 assists. Only three other Class AA players have 30 points so far this season. Pine-Richland's Zach Richey is second with 35.

Chartiers Valley has an extended break until Jan. 28 when it travels to Center Ice to take on Kiski. The puck drops at 6:30 p.m.
