LCAHL Playoff Quarterfinal Game

Allen Park Civic Center - Allen Park 1st 2nd 3rd Final
Novi FireCats 0 0 1   1 (1)
Plymouth Stingrays 0 0    1 1 (2)


Drew and his Novi FireCats teammates advanced to the quarterfinal stage of the LCAHL playoffs, pairing up against the Plymouth Stingrays in this mornings contest.

The two teams battled back and forth, but the defense and goaltending by both teams was just too strong, as both period one and two ended in 0-0 ties. With just over 10 minutes remaining in the third period, the FireCats finally broke the ice, scoring on a tip in after a big scramble in front of the net. With the way the game had been going up until now, it seemed as though that might be the lone goal of the game, but the Stingrays managed an answer with a little over 6 minutes remaining. They managed a 2 on 1 breakaway, and some back and forth passing got the FireCats goalie out of position, and just like that the game was tied. That would be it for the scoring, as the game would end tied 1-1, and would the overtime period.

The game would be decided in a shootout, and (unfortunately) it was basically over before it started. Most of the Novi FireCats parents knew that they would struggle to score based on who was lined up to shoot, and that fear became reality as the shootout unfolded. It would be the Stingrays who would score, and they would walk away with a 2-1 victory, sending the FireCats home after a heartbreaking defeat.
