A wild start to the 2016-17 CCHL League play began this Saturday for the Redwings against St. Rita. Both games required overtime to determine a winner.

The JV team lead off the day with a 3-2 overtime victory in an incredibly entertaining back and forth match-up.

The Varsity Redwings game was a heart-stopper. After going down 3-2 with just over 30 seconds left in the 3rd period, the Redwings came back and tied it up with a mad scramble in front of the net. The game tying goal entered the net with just over one-tenth of a second left on the clock. The Redwings were able to close out the victory in overtime with a final score of 4-3.

CCHL play continues this week with the Varsity team taking on Fenwick at Ridgeland Commons Friday night. Both the JV and Varsity teams will take on Brother Rice in back to back games next Saturday, 10/8.

Come out and show your support!

Go Redwings!
