The Yarmouth Mariners brought home the MHL Cup on Saturday.

Hundreds of fans lined up to take pictures with the players and the trophy.

The Mariners finished off the Edmundston Blizzard with a 5-1 win Friday night, goalie Joey Lovullo was named playoff MVP.

The New York native said the fans are everything.

“It’s unbelievable, the fans are great. It’s so amazing that everyone came out for us, it’s unreal,” said Lovullo.

Lower Wedgeport’s Ryan Semple, who had seven goals and 18 points in the playoffs says it was a special group.

“We couldn’t have asked for a better year. This group of guys just went to war every night,” said Semple.

The Mariners are off to the Centennial Cup, starting May 11th in Manitoba.

Head Coach and GM Laurie Barron says they’ll get back to work Tuesday.

“We’ll get to practicing again, and start watching some video. We’ll soon know what teams we’re going to play. We’ll be getting ready for our opener against the Alberta league champion,” said Barron.

Even though the team went 12-0 in the playoffs, the only team ever to accomplish that feat, Barron added that each series against Pictou County, Truro and Edmundston was tough.
