    Slightly before 7:00am the Lapeer Storm hockey team hit the ice for the consolation game of the Fall Colours tournament. This game wound up being a rematch of their third game of the tournament, against the St. Jude Knights, the team from Illinois. The previous contest between these two teams wound up with the Storm suffering a 6-3 defeat, including a goal by Drew and an empty netter from the Knights. This morning's game ended up being a much different contest, as the two teams played a tight game throughout the entire game. In fact, the entire first period was scoreless, as both teams played tough defense and got some excellent goaltending. The Storm team got on the board first, with Drew finding a loose puck in front of the goal and roofing it to put the Storm up 1-0. Two minutes later the Knights countered with a power-play goal, knotting the game at a goal apiece. The Storm found themselves shorthanded once again later in the period, but this time they found themselves the aggressors, scoring a short-handed goal to take a 2-1 lead into the second intermission. The third period was another close one, as the two teams traded chances. It was the Knights who finally capitalized midway through. Neither team could capitalize on their remaining chances, and the game ended with a 2-2 tie. While we would have preferred a victory, the team was happy to suffer another defeat and play this team much closer in their rematch.
