MADISON, Wis. -

Saturday afternoon at the Alliant Energy Center, Verona won its first boys hockey state championship as the team defeated Onalaska 6-1. 

The Wildcats dominated for the entirety of the game. In the first period, Brogan Baker collected a Verona rebound and backhanded it into the goal to give the Wildcats a 1-0 lead. 

In the second period the flood gates opened. Phillippe Fromberger fired a wrister from the point that found the back of the net to make it 2-0 Verona.

Four minutes later, Fromberger scored again. This time he took the puck on a breakaway, avoided a defender, and scored to make it 3-0 'Cats. Charlie Parker added another goal to make it 4-0 Verona at the end of the second. 

Onalaska managed to get on the board in the third period with a Luke Tepp goal, but Verona tacked on two more in the third to win it 6-1. It is Verona's first ever Boys Hockey State Championship.
