Keith Barnes profiles the Moon hockey team.
"Moon had everything it could have hoped for heading into its showdown with Erie Cathedral Prep earlier this month.
Not only were the Tigers riding a three-game winning streak, they were playing some of their best hockey of the season and were riding, statistically, the best goaltender in the classification.
Only Cathedral Prep wasn't just any other team and they made Moon (10-4-0) pay a steep price as the Ramblers scored three third-period goals, including two 46 seconds apart in the first four minutes, to take both a 4-2 victory over the Tigers at Mercyhurst and a stranglehold on first place in the PIHL Class AA Western Conference.
"We didn't play very well, we were flat and it's become a tradition for us to go there and not play so well," Moon coach Scott Kubatka said. "[Cathedral Prep] played well. They played a good game against us and we had some good takeaways from the game, things we can improve on, and it was a reality check for us at this point in the year.""
