Moon has not qualified for the playoffs since 2013, by already the Tigers seem to be ready to make a run for a spot this season.
Through four games, Moon is 3-1-0, tied with North Hills for second in the PIHL Class AA West Conference and is playing an incredibly tight brand of hockey. The Tigers have only scored 14 goals in their four games – led by Josh Scott with four and Brayden Lange with three – but they are 1-1 in one-goal games, including a 3-2 loss to Cathedral Prep in the season opener.
Though Moon may not be blowing teams out, it is winning and keeping teams close thanks to a solid defense led by senior defenseman Austin Murphy. It also helps that goaltender Ryan Durkin has been stellar.
