JAMESTOWN – On Monday, the Jamestown Raiders hockey team took home the 2020 State Championship with a 6-2 victory over Lancaster at Northwest Arena.

Going 2-0-1 in the preliminary round, the Raiders picked up a victory in the Semi-Finals Monday morning to advance to the Championship Round, defeating Syosset 6-4.






Less than a minute into the championship game, the Raiders drew first blood via the first of two goals by Raiders defenseman Alex MacCallum.

MacCallum would extend Jamestown’s lead to 2-0 after netting his second goal of the game in the second period, a lead the Raiders would not relinquish.



In the losing effort for Lancaster, Devin Clemons did score a goal to cut the team’s deficit to 2-1 with under six minutes left in the second period.

Jamestown responded with a 4-0 scoring run after Clemons’s goal, with two goals by forward Cooper Bergman and goals by forwards Cooper Bergman and Tristan Spillane. Jared Voelker scored the other goal for Lancaster with the game out of reach.











Named the MVP of the championship game, MacCallum went into the championship game with just one goal scored in 16 games played this season.

In the regular season, Bergman was the team leader with 22 points, scoring eight goals and adding 14 assists.

Spillane averaged one point a game during the 2019-2020 regular season, scoring nine goals and 18 points in 18 games.
