CASTLE SHANNON, Pa. — The Bishop McCort Crushers grabbed a leg up in the Class-1A Southeast division with a 6-3 win over South Park, thanks in part to Adis Ultanbekov’s four goals.

Ultanbekov traded two goals apiece with South Park’s Justin Mettrick in the first period, taking a 2-2 tie into the first intermission.

A power play goal by Nikita Zapolski early in the second and a goal by Bryce Bair late gave the Crushers the lead for good, 4-2.

Ultanbekov completed his hat trick just two minutes into the fourth and then traded goals with Garrett Brecosky of South Park to get his four-goal performance and give Bishop McCort the 6-3 win.

Shane Peremba made 37 saves in the losing effort for South Park. Nicholas Yost made 21 saves for the win.

Bishop McCort is one win from clinching a playoff berth. The Crushers travel to Kirk Nevin Arena on Thursday, Feb. 13 at 7:15 p.m. to play Greensburg-Salem. Bishop McCort will end the regular season by hosting Norwin on Tuesday, Feb. 18 at 6 p.m. at 1st Summit Arena and “visiting” 1st Summit against Westmont Hilltop on Tuesday, Feb. 25 at 6 p.m.

South Park clinched a playoff berth, despite the loss, due to losses by Chartiers Valley and North Hills. Char Valley fell 12-4 to Thomas Jefferson and North Hills lost 3-2 to Norwin. The Eagles will visit Chartiers Valley at Mt. Lebanon Ice Center on Monday, Feb. 17 at 9:10 p.m. and will host North Hills at Ice Castle on Thursday, Feb. 20 at 9 p.m.
