Scrimmage #1

12:15pm
Midland Civic Arena 1st 2nd 3rd Final
Novi FireCats 1         1    1 1 1 5
Midland Northstars    1 1 1  1 1 1 6
Drew and his '05 Novi FireCats teammates took to the ice for their first scrimmage of the fall season, travelling to Midland to take on the host Northstars.

Things were looking good early, as the FireCats found the back of the net first, scoring less than a minute into the contest. Despite some good offensive chances, they weren't able to add on to their lead. A Midland power play goal evened things up at a goal apiece with 10 minutes remaining, and that is how it appeared that the first period end... until Midland snuck one past the FireCats goalie with 2.3 seconds left in the period, which gave the Northstars a 2-1 lead.

The two teams battled back and forth for half a period before Midland finally broke through with a score, giving them a two goal lead. The FireCats wouldn't quit, however, as they came back with an answer a mere 6 seconds later with a goal of their own. Midland would expand their lead further with two goals in the final four minutes, but once again the FireCats weren't about to give up. They found the back of the net once again, this time in the final 30 second of the second, narrowing the gap to 5-3.

After scoring to end the second period, the FireCats came out hot, scoring once again 30 seconds in to the third period. This made it a 5-4 game, and they FireCats were looking to build on their momentum. A few minutes later the Northstars widened their lead once again, scoring their 6th goal of the game with less than 12 minutes remaining. Novi answered back, scoring 6 minutes later to close the gap once again. Unfortunately that would be it for the FireCats offense, and the game came to an end with the score 6-5 in favor of Midland.
