Solon natives EMack Bentley (left) and Connor Kucharski reunited on the ice when Emack’s Middlebury Panthers played Connor’s Williams College Ephs in Vermont.  Both are captains of their respective college hockey teams.

When Middlebury College and Williams College met for a home-and-home hockey game series, it was two Solonites leading their respective college teams.

EMack Bentley captained the Middlebury Panthers and Connor Kucharski the Williams Ephs. Both hockey players grew up in Solon, even playing at the same rink as 4- and 5-year-olds, but went their separate ways in youth hockey, junior hockey and now college hockey.
