MSD hockey ties NBP in first game of the decade

Coming off the winter break, many sports teams at MSD pick up their season and aim to do so at the same strength at which they left off.

This is the case for the MSD varsity hockey team whose impressive 10-4 start has put them in prime position to make a playoff push this season.

With many seniors, as well as underclassmen, who may leave for prep school or minor league hockey programs next year, MSD wants to capitalize on their talent this year.

The first opportunity for Douglas to extend their success in the new decade came on Monday, Jan. 6 against foe North Broward Prep.

With the game being held at the Ice Den, fans for both teams packed the stands as these two division rivals squared off.

The game was a defensive battle throughout but it was MSD who got on the board first, mounting a one-goal lead.

It is uncommon that MSD can beat NBP, a team filled with European superstars and local talent. So, this one-goal lead, while vulnerable, was prideful and joyous for the Eagles 

However, the one goal spread eventually collapsed as NBP slipped one past the goalie with just a minute and ten seconds left in the game.

“It hurt to watch,” senior Sam Hendler (13) said. “This is my last year here and we wanted to grab this win real bad, and it just slipped away so late. It’s tough to swallow.”

The game ended just over a minute later in a 1-1 tie.

The effort for MSD was valiant and surely worthwhile, but a win here would have been a huge opportunity to prove this season is different than the others.

MSD will look to grab a big victory on Friday, Jan. 10, back at the Ice Den, against the Cypress Bay Lightning.
