Trojans topple Knights

The Findlay Trojans came to play. They played the best hockey they have played all year doing all the right things with the puck. This allowed them to skate to a 3-2 over time victory.
This game was tied until just after the midway point in the 3rd when the Trojans found the back of the net on a beautiful shot. The knights ended up on their heels but reeled back and got in the fight. Then with 58 seconds to in regulation and face off in the Trojans zone, the Knights called for time out. They pulled goalie Davis to add the extra attacker. After the the drop the Trojans worked hard but alais with a net surrounded with bodies from both factions, a Knight drove in the tie goal. Then with just 4 ticks left on the clock the Trojans had a chance with a face off in the Knights zone. Electing to not pull their goalie, the Trojans were unable to score.
Over time was exciting. A Trojan was working hard to break away with puck and drew a penalty on the Knights. Down a man the Knights were at the mercy of the Trojans, nearly clearing the puck before final blow was delt.
Is off to the district championship for the Trojans, where they will be hosted by the Wildcats.
