On this day in 2012, the Grandview Comets completed an incredible stretch of winning championships as a member of the North Central Hockey League.
They won their fourth straight title when they beat Miniota/Elkhorn in the final. Cary Fillion was one of the goaltenders on the team and he had this to say on the feat.
"We had such a great group of guys. A whole bunch of them played junior hockey and they weren't done playing yet," said Fillion. "We had to beat some really good teams along the way. In the end, our team was so strong and so deep that we just got it done."
Grandview began the stretch of four straight titles in the 2009 season when they defeated Oak Lake. They also beat Oak Lake in 2010 and in 2011; they beat Miniota-Elkhorn in what turned out to be the first of back-to-back wins against them in the title series.
Fillion joined the team in the final two years.
"It was awesome. I remember so many great memories from the years I was with that team, we just had such a tight-knit group," continued Fillion.
In other Comets history news, on this Sunday back in 2018, the team won another North Central Hockey League title when they once again took down Miniota-Elkhorn.
