Tyrone junior Dalton Berry loves hockey and feels that he and his fellow players don’t always get the recognition they deserve.

Of course, Tyrone does not have a varsity hockey team, so Berry is one of five Tyrone junior boys who play for the Bishop Guilfoyle Marauders. Trevor Fink, Noah Taylor, Jack Lehner, and Wyatt Miles are the other four members of the Tyrone class of 2019 who plays for Marauders.

“The Dawg Pound is there for every other sport, why not get some Tyrone students to our games?” said Berry.

My schedule revolves around hockey, but I just fell in love with it.”

Berry, Taylor, Lehner, and Fink have been playing as a team for approximately four years. Miles has just recently joined them on the rink.

‘These kids bring great attitudes to our team and their parents should be proud,” said BG team manager Ken Partner, “We are also proud that their parents are part of the Marauder hockey family. Our sense of community is not unlike that of the Tyrone community when it comes to sports.”

Berry also plays for the Mid-State Mustangs AA and Altoona Trackers AA.

Hockey takes up a most of Berry’s free time. He practices his stick handling and his shooting every day. On Wednesday and Sunday nights he has ice time.

“My schedule revolves around hockey,” said Berry, “but I just fell in love with it. I started playing competitively because of [Tyrone alumni and former BG player]Ambrose Aquadro.”

Defenseman Trevor Fink also plays for the Marauders, and with Berry on Altoona Trackers AA as well.

Fink doesn’t spend nearly as much time as Berry does practicing, but still spends about three days and eight hours a week on the ice.

“[I like] how demanding the sport is,” said Fink.

Trevor has been playing hockey for seven years.

“Hockey is a very enjoyable sport. I joined because Dalton and Noah played we all played roller hockey together prior to ice hockey, so I thought I may as well join too,” said Fink

Left or right wingman Wyatt Miles plays only for the Marauders.

I like the physical aspect of the game. [The] checking or hitting the opponents. I also like it because it’s an awesome feeling when you get a goal”

— Jack Lehner

Miles practices at least once a week on Sunday, and sometimes more.

“I enjoy pretty much everything about [the sport]. The thing I like the most is the history of the sport,” said Miles.

He has been playing hockey for about a year and a half. Roller hockey for a year and ice hockey for about 5 months.

“[I] joined mostly because Noah and Dalton play, but I would happily continue playing even if they quit,” said Miles.

Forward Noah Taylor joins them on the Marauders. He has been playing with Berry and Fink for about four years and with Wyatt for one year. Taylor has been playing for a total of five years.

Like Miles, Taylor practices every Sunday for an hour and a half. Taylor said that Berry is the reason that he got into hockey.

Winger Jack Lehner is also on the Marauders and has been playing hockey for a total of seven years.

“I like the physical aspect of the game. [The] checking or hitting the opponents. I also like it because it’s an awesome feeling when you get a goal,” said Lehner.

Lehner got into hockey because his grandparents were big fans of the Pittsburgh Penguins.

All five of the boys are looking forward to their last two years of playing as Marauders.
