Hockey beats SJJ, heads to Frozen Four


For the third straight year Northview Hockey is on its way to States.

NV took on St. John’s on February 28 at Tam-O-Shanter. Coming into the game NV had beaten Bowling Green in the Semi Finals 3-0. After the win, NV was forced to play SJJ for the third straight year in the District Finals.

SJJ had a fast start in the game, taking a quick 0-1 lead off a weird goal. Seconds after that, SJJ added another goal making it 0-2 lead, ending the first period with SJJ in the lead, but NV came back fighting.

Halfway into the second period senior Caleb Rau scored making it 1-2. The second period was filled with huge saves from senior goalie David Marsh. The second period ended 1-2 with SJJ still ahead.

Partway into the third period junior Zach Galecki scored a breakaway goal making it 2-2.

Later into the period, senior Jake Koback put the puck in the net off a scrum in front of the goal with 6:39 left in the period, giving NV the lead 3-2. But Koback was not done, 17 seconds later he added to his one goal night, making it two, to let NV have a two goal lead, 4-2.

The Cats won for the third consecutive time against SJJ. The next game for the Frozen Four is March 7 at 1pm at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, against Columbus St. Charles
