Game Recap

#2 ranked Forest Hills Central continued their bid for a state title as they faced off against the #1 ranked team in the state Flint Powers Catholic in front of a packed house in the State Quarter Finals. The Rangers path has been very challenging having to beat state ranked East Grand Rapids, Jackson Lumen Christi and always tough Grand Rapids Catholic Central in their previous games. Flint Powers came in firing on all cylinders beating their opponents by a score of 25-0 in their three playoff games. Flint Powers Catholic scored the only goal of the 1st period after a tightly contested physical battle by both squads. Forest Hills Central would take the lead with two powerplay goals as Zak Currie and Mackey Withey would score within a couple minute span to take a 2-1 lead after 2-periods. The Rangers would take a delay of game penalty with a couple of seconds left in the 2nd and Powers Catholic would capitalize and score early in the 3rd tying the game at 2-apiece. Forest Hills Central would be denied by the cross bar late in the game and Ranger netminder Carl Mielock would stop a breakaway with 3-minutes to go sending the game into overtime. Two years ago as Sophomore Brendan Smith would score in overtime to beat the Rangers 3-2 sending Powers Catholic into the State Semis. Fast forward 2-years later Smith now a senior year would once again find the back of the net beating Ranger Netminder Carl Mielock for a 3-2 Powers Catholic victory. With the win Powers Catholic improves to 29-1. The Rangers coaches, families, school and community can be very proud of these young men as they came within one goal of moving on towards a state title; batting the best team in the state down to the wire. The Rangers finished a fantastic season as Conference and Regional Champs and a 24-3-2 overall record.
