BOYS GAME 2: East 4, West 4 (tie)
No one scored in the first 20 minutes of the final game of the day until the East got a goal at the 19:54 mark of the first half when Tristan Vickers of Wood Memorial powered in a goal for a 1-0 advantage.
A little less than nine minutes later, the East increased its advantage to 2-0 when Austin Lindzy of Lowell kicked the ball into the net 10:56 before halftime.
The West avoided being shut out in the opening 40 minutes when Aaron Wills of Beech Grove powered the ball into the twine 3:18 before intermission, cutting the East lead to 2-1 at the break.
Almost 30 minutes passed before a goal was scored in the second half, but William Rubino of Michigan City broke the ice at the 10:41 mark to boost the East advantage to 3-1.
That two-goal lead lasted exactly 73 seconds until Jay Pike of Northwestern scored with 9:28 left to trim the West’s deficit to 3-2. Tristan Vickers got his second goal of the game with 6:16 remaining to give the East a seemingly safe 4-2 advantage.
But Pike scored goals at the 3:16 mark and with 1:20 left in the contest to complete the hat trick and pull the West into a 4-4 tie, which is the way the game ended.
Jake Price of Wood Memorial and Rhiggs Thomas of Michigan City shared goalkeeper duties for the East, and Connor Donaldson from Michigan City Marquette Catholic was goalkeeper for the West.
Postyourt would like to thank the players, parents, sponsors, and fans in attendance for another successful event.
