The North Royalton Bears are the 2013 Jr. Jacks Thanksgiving Turkey Bowl Tournament Champions. The Bears defeated the Riverside Beavers by the score of 5-3 earlier today, December 1st, in Cleveland Heights, OH to earn the title. The Bears jumped out early scoring just 16 seconds into the opening period when Cameron Megazzini buried a beautiful feed from Timmy Orlosky; Angelo Nero also picked up an assist on the goal. Riverside tied the game at a goal apiece a few minutes later however the game didn’t remain tied long as North Royalton responded scoring two goals in a 31 second span to take a two goal lead, a lead they would not relinquish. Branden Walsh netted the Bears 2nd goal, on the power play, with assists being awarded to Aaron Schmitt and Jeremy Gripp followed by Timmy Orlosky blasting a slap shot past the Riverside keeper the Bears 3rd goal. The Bears held a 3-2 lead midway through the middle frame when Michael Dzoba’s hard work earned him a rebound goal with assists given to Schmitt and Walsh. Unfortunately for the Bears, they ended the 2nd just like they did the 1st giving up a goal to Riverside in the final minutes of the period. The Bears entered the final period up 4-3 and didn’t waste time adding their 5th and final goal scoring just 90 seconds into the period. The goal was scored by Angelo Nero who set up in the slot and finished a brilliant feed from Orlosky; Megazzini also picked up an assist on the goal.
