Last year it took 5 over time sessions for Team Toledo to down Team Cleveland for a Championship birth. This year it takes one partial stanza for Sylvanias Andy Martin to find the twine, and send the Leafs to the title game.
The Championship is being played in Lansing, at Suburban at 12:30. Its a great opportunity to see a great group of players compete for a National Title.
Nate Gay is Sylvania's MVP. Entering this game the big goalie has played 157 min in 3 games faced a recorded 95 shots and stopped 93 has a save percentage of .979
The trend here is that for the last two years Northwest Ohio has won two State titles. The for the last three years been dominate on the National level. This game marks the second National Title match in a row. The 96 Cherokee are following on the same path the 93's were on. We can only expect that quality youth programs, developing players with skill, that NW Ohio is well on its way to reestablishing the regions Hotbed status.
