Matt, Mark and Leo Lynett, of Neumann High in Williamsville, N.Y., led their team to the Loyola Hockey Tournament championship in Montreal, the first squad from the United States to win the event in its four-year history. In Neumann's 8-3 triumph over Riverview of Sydney, Nova Scotia, in the finals, Mark, 17, a senior center, scored four goals and Leo, 15, a sophomore center, scored three as both were named to the all-tournament team. Matt, an 18-year-old senior defenseman, who was knocked unconscious in the second period of the final and played no more, was named the tourney's MVP. Last winter Matt competed on the Amherst (N.Y.) team that won the national juvenile championship. The three brothers are playing together this year for the first time since their Pee Wee team won the Buffalo city championship seven years ago.
