The Green team took to the ice on Saturday needing a win to guarantee 2nd place and also give them a chance at first.
Harry Jones (Berman) got Green going with a wrist shot over the Prairie Ridge goalie’s shoulder just 2 minutes into the game to give Green a 1-0 lead. That quick start didn't last as PR scored 90 seconds later to tie things up.
PR took a 2-1 lead just minutes into the 2nd period. A bad defensive step up allowed PR to go in on an odd man break. Green answered while short handed as Senior All State forward Matt (Soul train) Solberg received a great pass from All State defenseman Jack Dolby and beat the Wolves goalie to tie the game at 2-2.
In the 3rd period, it was Solberg again, this time from Berman who made a beautiful centering pass. The Berman / Solberg duo were not done as this time Berman stuffed one in from Solberg with a helper. The game ended 4-2. Shots on goal were 39-25 in Green’s favor. Green finished an impressive 19-4-1 and finished just one point out of first place. The same night, GBN defeated St. Viator in a shoot out 3-2. Had Viator won the shoot out, Green would have finished in first place.
Green opens up first round SHL playoff action vs #7 seed GBS on Thursday evening in a best of 3 series.
