Wenatchee completes sweep of Bellingham to claim Cascade Cup

The Wenatchee Wolves completed a series sweep of the Bellingham Blazers on Friday, April 1, at the Sportsplex to claim the Northern Pacific Hockey League’s Cascade Cup championship with a 2-1 Game 3 win.

The Wolves jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first period. Blazers defenseman Kevin Duncan cut the lead in half with seven minutes left in the game, but Wenatchee goalie Bronson Moore kept Bellingham at bay the rest of the way.

Bellingham lost in the Cascade Cup for the second straight year after winning titles its first two years of existence in 2013 and 2014.

“I am proud of the effort our boys showed,” Blazers coach Mark Collins said in a team release. “They came a long way this season and showed a lot of heart all year.”
