The MYHA 19U Girls suffered a heartbreaking loss in the final game of the District Finals on Sunday against a very talented Nashville Jr Predators team. They took a 1-0 lead early in the first period but Nashville scored during the second period to tie it up. Nashville scored again to lead 2-1, off an unlucky deflection on a MYHA defenseman’s arm.
With 10 minutes left in the third period MYHA scored to tie it up, 2-2. Nashville then scored with 2:07 left on a power play goal. MYHA pulled the goalie with 1 minute left but an empty net goal made the final score 4-2.
It was the end of the best season these girls have ever had, and the end of an era for the 7 seniors. The MYHA community is very proud of their achievements!
On Friday, MYHA defeated the Carolina Jr Hurricanes 6-5 in overtime and on Saturday they beat Florida Alliance 5-2 and lost to Nashville 6-0. MYHA then lost to Nashville 4-2 in the District Finals.
