The 6-3 Moriah hockey team came into a tough 7-2 Ramaz building needing a win. The 1st period was very intense and tight, both teams trading good chances, but excellent play by both the defense and goalies kept it scoreless going into the 2nd.
Early in the 2nd, Sammy Volodarsky of Moriah got the ball off of a turnover and shelved it past the Ramaz goalie to break the ice and give Moriah the 1-0 lead. Most of the period proved to be like the first until Max Kraft found the back of the net again for Moriah off of a rebound in front. Ramaz came out hard in the 3rd, needing to put one in the net, but stellar play by Moriah’s goalie Ethan From and their penalty kill prevented the Ramaz offense from scoring. From finished with a fantastic shutout, sealing Moriah a home playoff game after back-to-back victories. The Moriah team is going into the playoffs hoping to become champions again.
