Fast and Friendly Alumni Game Ends in 7-7 tie and Shootout

With evenly matched benches filled with a combination of alums and current players, the 12th annual Madison Warhawk Alumni game was fast paced and remained close through all three periods. The teams repeatedly swapped leads and neither team was able to get more than a 2 point lead. Team Light moved ahead with just a minute to go in the third but Team Dark would not be denied. Spurred on by a visit to the bench from former head coach, Ed Cass, Team Dark alumni led a last ditch drive ending in a goal at the buzzer to tie it up 7-7. During a lengthy shoot-out sequence Team Light prevailed with their final shot, winning 8-7.
