Herod Scores Game Winner With 8 Seconds On Clock

- In a rainy-muddy game played on Thursday afternoon, Marcus Whitman’s Ryan Herod scored the game winning goal with 0:08 left on the clock to give the Wildcats an 8-7 win over Wayne.  This was only the second time in history that the Wildcats had defeated the Eagles (the last time was 2012).  Herod was demonstrative in the game and finished with 2g-3a.  For Wayne, Nate Michel was equally as impressive with 3g-2a.  The Wildcats increased to 4-0 on the season with Wayne recording their first loss (2-1).  Both see action again tomorrow with Wayne facing Mynderse and Marcus Whitman facing Gananda.

The Wildcats led off the second quarter with their third goal of the night.  Once again Royston scored off a feed from Herod.  Wayne stopped the scoring streak with an unassisted goal from Jack Acker.  Acker ran a sweep along the top of the box, turning down the middle before scoring for the Wildcats.  After a time-out, Wayne tied the game up at 3-3 with a strong single player effort from Michel.  He drove along the left side and found a good enough angle to finish into the back of the net.  With only 15 seconds left in the half, Marcus Whitman won the face-off.  The long stick came up the field and attempted a cross; however, the pass was intercepted by the goalie.  The half ended with the teams tied at 3-3.
