The first time David Cirba crossed paths with Garhett Dawson they were dressed up for trick-or-treating.
Dawson went as Obi-Wan Kenobi. Cirba was Darth Vader. They were 6.
Cirba was convinced they were destined to become mortal enemies because of their conflicting costumes. They became close friends by the time they reached middle school.
One thing they had in common was hockey. They played together until eighth grade before knee injuries kept Dawson off the ice.
This season was supposed to bring a much-anticipated last hurrah. Dawson felt fully recovered. The rising senior was ready to finally play for the Exeter/Gov. Mifflin co-op in the EPSHL.
