Cat Nipped

by Coach Elliott on February 18, 2009

The Wildcats were riding a wave of momentum heading into the final game of the regular season this past weekend. At stake was a league championship as the Cats hosted the St. Johns Titans on senior night.

Unfortunately the Cats produced their only magical moments before the drop of the first puck as Seniors Jordan Keefe, Cody Ramm, Jake Thornton, Nile Culver, Matt Duvall, Bob Napierala and Kyle Hymore were all honored for their dedication to the Northview family.

As far as the game, the Cats played more like the team from December through Mid-January rather than the team that had rattled off 5 straight wins to earn a chance for the league crown. 6 unanswered goals by the Titans produced a lop-sided win and the Cats settled for a 2nd place finish in the NHC. On a bright note the Cats have now finished either 1st or 2nd in the league for 4 consecutive seasons, including 2 league titles. Furthermore their 38-10-2 record over the past 5 years is good for a 79.2 winning % best in the league. Since the start of the decade Northview has finished lower than 2nd just 3 times in 9 years, 2 of those being 3rd place finishes.

Northview will move on to postseason play this Thursday as they host Ottawa Hills @ 6 o’ clock at Tam-o-SHanter. Good luck in the post season Cats.
