Omaha Mavs Bring Home Junior Hockey Title

WAYNE, N.J. — Christopher Wilkie scored the game-winner on a pass from Jack Suter with four seconds remaining in the USA Hockey national championship Sunday, and the Omaha Jr. Mavericks Bantam AA's won 4-3 over the Southern Rhode Island Jr. Rams to claim the title in the 14-U 2-A Tier II division.

Wilkie scored twice and Suter and Gunnar Rowswell also scored for the Mavericks, and goalie Jason Bruckner made 26 saves.
