The buzzer goes off to start the 3rd period and we come out with fire as Chad Rowe blasts 2 quick ones in from the point and we go on to nip the Jets 5-4."

4-3 OT loss to heavily favored Houghton in the Regional Champ game. They score to tie the game with 1:17 left in the fame to tied - we're running a perfect lock vs them. Richie Storm's breakaway in OT fails vs Ron Wiitanen and they return rush for the game winner. Dan Juopperi finishes a great career with 2 goals and an assist."

Lassi Katavisto (Finnish transfer from Helsinki) is one of the best D-men we have had. Karl Maki pulls off his magic again in the State Tourney -3 straight shutouts en route to the Finals. Lots of adversity, sticks/equipment stolen off the bus in Flint -- 15 of 17 return!"
