Written by Ken Wunderley on .

Canon-McMillan senior Brendan Furman made it four out of five against Kiski Area junior Isaac Reid, including the one that mattered the most.

Furman (47-3) capped his high school career with a 5-3 victory over Reid in the 285-pound final, thus closing out the 2017 state championships. It was the fifth time the two met this season and Furman won four times, including wins in the WPIAL and PIAA finals.

"Normally, in any other match, I feel butterflies," Furman said. "But I didn’t have any out there tonight. He meant business. He tried some different stuff but I found my way."

Who is Alex Wilbert?

In the end, he showed everyone who he was and led Peters Township to a state title in the process.

On a whim, Indians coach Rick Tingle replaced all-star goaltender Wesley Kaylor with the freshman Wilbert, who was a less-than-thrilling 2-3-1 with a 2.67 goals-against average and a .903 save percentage in six regular season games.
