Connor Mann set a Lansdale Catholic School record with nine goals on Monday to lead the Crusader host to a 14-7 win over Pope John Paul II in the first liver disease awareness game from Cole’s Goals.

Cole’s Goals was created to help raise awareness of biliary atresia and other liver diseases and to raise funds for the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) Liver Research Foundation.

Cole Joseph Princehorn, son of LC coach Mark Princehorn, was born on November 30, 2020 and during his 2 month appointment it was learned that he has biliary atresia. The rare congenital condition, which afflicts infants, causes blockage of the ducts that carry bile from the liver to the gallbladder.

Cole underwent 7-hour surgery and made great progress while undergoing treatments for 15 months. He still has his native liver and the Princehorn family and the LC community would like to thank the CHOP team.

In Monday’s game, Dan Curran won 15 of 20 faceoffs and Patch Flannery had two goals and an assist while Pat McKeever had a goal and three assists. Mikey Kleinert and Pat Cooney each had a goal and an assist. Jack Kennedy (5 saves) and Carson Schroding (3 saves) handled goalie duties.

The Cole’s Goals event raised over $4,000 in donations. Other donations can be made to him on the fundraising page.
