|This morning Drew and his Novi FireCats teammates would face off
against their fellow Novi team, the IceCats. Some of the players
from each team have played on the same tea in the past, so neither
side wanted to lose this battle.
The FireCats players were
definitely ready to go today, as they jumped out to the early lead
by scoring a power play goal just past the five minute mark. Later
in the period, the two teams found themselves playing in a 4 on 4
situation after some more penalties, and once again the FireCats had
some success, scoring again to make it a 2-0 game. Less than 30
seconds later they would tack on their third goal of the period to
widen the lead once again. The 3-0 score would stand when the period
came to an end.
After the scoring outburst in the first, it took a while for
things to get going in the second, but it was the FireCats who once
again broke through, scoring their fourth goal of the game with just
over a minute to play in the period. They would head into the final
fifteen minutes with a 4-0 lead.
It was the IceCats who finally got on the scoreboard in the final
stanza, scoring their first goal of the game at the 10 minute mark.
They seemingly scored a second goal, but for reasons unknown to
everyone in the arena the referee waived off the goal, leaving the
score at 4-1. That score would stand for the rest of the game,
giving the FireCats the victory over their in-house rivals.
