     Goalie Cody Levitan is having a pretty good week.

     Two days after winning the state high school hockey title, the WoodRiver senior was between the pipes as Yoga College of India defended its Gund Cup Senior Hockey League championship Tuesday night.

     In the 30th annual Gund Cup title game at Sun ValleySkatingCenter, YogaCollege defeated Sun Valley Auto Club/Grumpy’s by a score of 6-1. It was Yoga’s fourth Gund Cup title in the last six years.

     Surrendering only two goals in the Gund Cup tourney games, goalie Levitan earned Most Valuable Player honors.

     Pete Prekeges twined two goals. Tate Mills, Clint Lightner, Kris Webster and Taylor Rothgeb singled for the winners. Brad Dredge carved out a three-assist playmaker.

     For Grumpy’s, John McGuone scored off a Charles Friedman pass. And Chris Edwards played most of the game in the net in place of Dave Stone, who reinjured his groin on the first goal.

     Before Tuesday’s 2010-11 season finale, the Gund Cup titles between Yoga and 2005, 2008-09 champ Grumpy’s stood even at three apiece in the last six championships. Tuesday’s victory gave second-seeded YogaCollege (8-6 season) a 4-3 edge over seven years.

     Regular-season league champ and top-seed SV Auto Club ended with a 9-4-1 mark.
