Sioux City would capitalize on an early period Crusaders penalty when Teagan Doleman would increase the Metros lead
to three. With time running out, the Crusaders desperately want to pull their goaltender but constant pressure from Sioux
City makes that impossible and a late in the period Blaze Bauer’s second goal of the game cements the victory and a trip
to the championship

Jackson Pinney                                                                  Caiden Patrick

The second frame is a total reversal-both teams hit the ice knowing that not scoring, isn’t gonna win any one a championship.
This is a up and down the ice affair with tons of offence, fast breaks and great saves however, it;s East Islip scoring first
and grabbing and holding the game’s momentum for much of the period. However with just over two minutes Hunter Echter
would tie the game and just twenty second later Teagan Doleman give the Metros the lead. But the high scoring Chiefs don’t
go away and quickly counter sending the teams to the locker rooms knotted-up at two.

The third period is another battle between to terrific teams. This period offers-up twenty-three total shots on goals and a pair
of un-successful power-plays for both teams. Just when everyone is thinking overtime – Karson Fitch breaks the tie and fifteen
seconds later Nate Solma gives the Metros a two goal lead. As time runs out for the Chiefs they go with the extra attacker, and
after some initial pressure to tie the game, Karson Fitch is able to corral an errant pass and find the empty net securing a
Championship win for the Metros.
