Game 1- down a goal with a minute left, score with goalie pulled, then add two more goals - 5-3 win
Game 2- 1-1 late in the third- score shorthanded and win a nail biter 2-1
Game 3- win and we are in the finals- lost 5-2 to a team with a 2010 birthyear phenom (we are 2008’s) He did things we’ve never seen before, including the michigan goal!
Game four- do or die- great back and forth game-tied at 2, opponent pulls their goalie (again we are tied) because they need win to be in the mix for goals against tie breaker. Last minute they took it to us but we staved them off to be in the mix!
Tie breaker is goals against- tourney director says we are in finals!
Championship game go up 2-0 in first period, then controversial goal against makes it 2-1. Stayed the course and then the gloves were in the air!
Coaches want to thank the families for all the support. And most importantly, the kids, never let up, ever, and they were rewarded in the end! There’s no better feeling, in my opinion.
