In a highly anticipated battle that has waged for over 30 years.
IT WAS GAME NIGHT
LINDBERGH vs. VIANNEY.
The game started with a feeling out period for both teams with heavy hitting and puck play by the Vianney Griffin team. The first goal saw Vianney get on the board with a wheel play from the corner @ 7:01 beating Andrew Yocum high bar for the first goal. Shortly after Vianney added a second goal on a shot from the point that pinballed through 5 players and squeaked into the net @ 5:35 of the period. Lindbergh would not stay silent for long and @ 4:06 of the period Mason Budde roofed a shot over the Vianney goalie from the point. Assist to Behrens.
The second period started with a 3rd goal (12:13) from Vianney on another wheel play out of the corner and Goal #2 on the night by Gaither. Lindbergh chose to slow down the game a bit and changed goalies bringing in Junior Drew Moseley. On his first shot and hampered by some indecision on D the puck rolled up his pad into the net @ 11:07 for Vianney and a 4-1 lead. This would be the last goal of the game for Vianney as Moseley found his pace and stopped the next 16 shots over the last 2 periods.
At the beginning of the 3rd period the Flyers seemed to gain some confidence and began working the puck in the offensive zone and a back door pass lead to a goal @ 13:35 by Brian Wagner, Assisted by Kersting/M.Fischer. Roughly 5 minutes later @ 7:23 of the 3rd period the Flyers started getting some bounces and a shot from the point beat the Vianney Goalie after pinballing in the crease. GOAL - Kersting. Unassisted.
The Flyers team put on a big push and had a number of chances to even the score at the end before coming up one goal short against the Vianney Griffins.
