After 60 minutes of regulation and 5 minutes of overtime the game between Team White and Team Red remained tied. A shootout would determine a winner. Here's what two key players had to say.
“It is something I have been working on a little bit. I just kind of build up my speed and then when the goalie kind of reads your speed ....at the last second I fire on the brakes and really slow down and try and beat him. . .I think it is a pretty strong move and I was lucky today that it happened to go in.”
“Well it was a little bit of pressure since if I score we win if I don’t then it goes on to another shooter. But up at school we do shootouts every week, and I always go in slow like that and it really rattles the goalies. So I thought I would try it with him and it worked out pretty well....Guys were joking around that it looked like I was walking on the ice. It is what I do. It works, so I’ll stick with it. ...If you are not crafty and you are a little guy like me you are going to get tossed around there going against guys like Joe Finley, who are huge.
Miele's goal won the game for team white.
