[ Game Statistics ]

COLUMBUS, Ohio — The 2012 OHSAA ice hockey state tournament began Saturday afternoon at Nationwide Arena with two state powerhouses facing off. After handing record-setting No. 1 Cleveland St. Ignatius its only loss of the season last Saturday in the district finals, Lakewood St. Edward found itself trailing Hunting Valley University School 2-0 after two periods and relied on an Alex Norton goal in the last two minutes of regulation to force a sudden-death overtime and win 3-2 in the first semifinal game of the day.

Much like the previous eight tournament games these two teams played where they allowed a combined seven total goals, the first period was dominated by defense and ended in a scoreless tie. However, University School wasted no time getting on the scoreboard in the second when senior assistant captain Connor Judson scored on a power play just 1:16 into the period. He was assisted on the goal by Kevin DeGulis. Preppers’ senior captain Matt Wipper then scored another power play goal, with the assist coming from Judson, 3:13 into the period. The remainder of the period featured 13 saves recorded by seniors Sam Althans (7- HVUS) and Logan Galati (6-LSE). Althans and Galati would finish the game with 20 saves apiece.

After the second intermission the Eagles found their offense when senior Matt Geib found the back of the net 2:50 into the third period of play. He was assisted on the goal by junior Gabe Lampron and senior Christopher Hoy. With time running out, Eagles’ senior Alex Norton scored the tying goal with 1:19 left in the game to force a sudden death overtime. With 21.2 remaining on the clock, Lampron sent the Eagles back to the championship game for the second consecutive year with an unassisted goal.

University School, which was making its 10th state appearance, finishes the season 23-10-3. Lakewood St. Edward, the 2011 state runner-up, returns to the state championship game and will play the winner of Sylvania Northview and Lewis Center Olentangy Orange, Sunday at 11:00 a.m.
