Chase Winter, who recently finished his playing career as a Johns Hopkins midfielder, had four goals and an assist and was named Most Valuable Player of the Men's Open 1 championship game at the Lake Placid Summit Classic in North Elba, N.Y. on Sunday.
Winter led Power-Tek, a team that featured 2012 Tewaaraton Award winner Peter Baum and several other players with Colgate ties, to a 13-10 win over the Big Red Steelheads for their second straight Open 1 title. It was Winter's first time playing in the event, which has been held annually since 1990.
In the Men's Master's 1 final, recently hired Cornell assistant Peter Milliman scored three fourth-quarter goals and then the overtime winner for Graph Tex, which beat two-time defending champion Burnt Orange, 9-8. Graph Tex got a coaching boost from Maryland's John Tillman, who was unable to play because of a shoulder injury.
