KENT – Although not by design, University School found a new formula for getting a goal in a hockey game when it is key to score one – 1) commit a penalty late in a period of play, go down a man, and score a short-handed goal just at a time when the opponents’ expectations are high. 

STATE HOCKEY TOURNAMENTS

Two late period/early period goals turned the tides twice in Friday night’s sectional semifinal game here in the Kent State University Ice Arena, as the No. 1 seed sputtered early but then dandily dashed through the second and third periods to a 7-0 win over Chagrin Falls.

The Tigers put up a good stand at the onset, skating to a 0-0 tie with the vaunted Preppers through the first period. 


Despite getting outshot, 16-2, in the first period by the Preppers, Chagrin held its own, plugging up the middle so that the No. 1 Kent District seed could not get any players near the crease or the puck in any of the holes around the tender.

Sophomore goaltender Don Jackson stopped everything the Preppers fired his way, which was mainly from the points and the tops of the circles. There was one scrum in front of the net in the first period, but the Preppers were able to kick it out after better than five seconds of congestion.

They skated at even strength through most of the first period, at least up until the final period when elbowing was called on US, creating a break --- for US.

The Preppers killed the remaining seconds of the first period and then came up with the proverbial hockey momentum shifter in the opening seconds of the second period. 
Preiser

It wasn’t long before the Preppers made it 2-0, with the White Line doing the honors, Tyler Dalton scoring the goal at 2:30 with assists coming from Kevin DeGulis and Jared Rubin.

Another even-strength goal made it 3-0 at 3:17, Preiser scoring the goal and Robertson and George Chapman assisting.

During a line change, US was called for too many men on the ice. Again in the final minute a US mistake created a break – for US. 



Robertson scored the beauty of a goal just a few seconds into penalty on an odd-man rush at 14:49 of the second, making it, 4-0.

The Preppers, better than 80 percent this season on the penalty kill, doused the rest of the minutes in the carry over to early in the third period.

The Chagrin special teams killed a US power play in the middle of the second period and two power plays midway through and third period. However, both third period kills took some energy out of the Tigers as US quickly scored after both

Just a couple minutes after Chagrin killed the third-period US power play, the Preppers’ Red Line put up goal No. 5, with Connor Clemens scoring and Preiser and Robertson assisting. 
Rubin

Then after the second power play, it was the Blue Line of Jack Linderman (goal) and Brad Marshall and Rubin scoring at 10:41 and then nine seconds later Clemens coming through again with help from Robertson and Joey Ryder. 

Jackson had a busy day in goal for Chagrin, saving 58 shots on goal.

Sam Althans and Andrew Megerian shared the shutout in goal.
