Game #4

9:45am
Troy Sports Center - Troy 1st 2nd 3rd Final
Novi FireCats       1 1       1 3
Troy Sting 1 1   0 1 1   4
Today's game was a rematch from yesterday, as the two teams travelled to Troy to do battle once again. Unfortunately, the FireCats didn't appear to be awake yet, and found themselves down two goals in the first three minutes. Once they settled in a bit, they began to look like they belonged. They kept attacking, and finally found themselves on the scoreboard with just under 3:30 to play, bringing the score to 2-1 as the period came to an end.

The second period was a back and forth affair, but neither side was able to generate any puck luck, until once again the FireCats struck with just under 3:30 remaining in the period, knotting the score at two goals apiece.

The Sting regained their lead about a third of the way though the final period, and opened it back up to two goals after Drew got called for boarding, earning a two minute penalty plus a 10 minute misconduct penalty for the hit. The call seemed questionable, as Drew seems to get calls any time a smaller kid goes down near him. Perhaps the penalty was warranted, but not the extra 10. Needless to say, the FireCats did their best to overcome the call, and scored with just under five to play to make it a 4-3 game. They did everything that they could to earn a tie before time expired, but alas it wasn't meant to be...
