On Friday January 28, over 600 fans crowded into the Ice Vault in Wayne, NJ to watch the Indian Hills Braves upset the favorite, the Ramapo Raiders, in an exciting second match-up of the season for the two teams. While this game did not draw as many spectators as the pre-Christmas game earlier in the season, students still packed the stands to cheer on their team.
After the first two periods, the two teams were tied 0-0. While Ramapo out shot Indian Hills throughout the game, neither team dominated the other overall. Indian Hills team members clearly came out well-prepared, learning from their mistakes in the 5-1 loss to Ramapo earlier in the season. The Indian Hills hockey team was ready to put up a good fight against Ramapo, and that is exactly what it did.
Late in the third period as the clock ticked down, it seemed like the two teams would end in a tie. But finally, with 2:49 to go, Trevor L. crossed the puck to T.J. T. who put it away in the back of the net. The Braves side of the bleachers went crazy, leaving Ramapo fans in a state of shock. Braves supporters continued to gain hope with every tick of the clock until with ten seconds left, they began to count down, and the Indian Hills Braves completed an astonishing upset over its rival, Ramapo High School.
