Culver A Goes Back-To-Back In 4A State Finals
The Carroll Chargers tried to go back to back in two different state brackets but unfortunately fell in Double OT.
Adlee Scheerer deflected the puck from a snipe from Max Fiedler. The first period went by quite quickly.
Culver headed off for interference but then called it. As would repeat from the first period, the second period went by without a whole lot of fanfare.
Culver’s Adam Trumble got called for a penalty. Brody Burge almost had the game on his stick and had an amazing opportunity at 8:01. Afterwards, Finn Cupp headed to the box for a boarding call. Culver would tie the game up on the PP as the sophomore Schubert buried the rebound. Cupp had another chance of his own but was unable to score. Culver’s Adam Hagerman had a penalty in the dying moments of regulation. Carroll took their timeout.
Carroll started with a power play. They had a 5-on-4 opportunity. In the first OT, state rules show a five minute, 4-on-4 period. They could not capitalize and the game went into a second overtime.
Double Overtime looks like a 10-minute period that is 3-on-3. There could be as many extra overtime periods as this until someone scores. But someone did score in this second extra frame. Sam Watson for Culver snuck behind the defence as Carroll was headed off for a line-change. He managed to shoot the right side and bury the puck.
