TEAM PITTSBURGH'S NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP GAME
Team Pittsburgh is a girls hockey program. There official website is www.pittsburghaviators.com . Both U12 and U16 made it to Nationals this year and there U12 team made it to the championship game vs. Assabet Valley from Boston. With 1min and 24sec left to go in the 3rd period, the score 1-0 Assabet, Team Pittsburgh pulled there goalie Taylor Cestra, and put out six players, Christina Zalewski, Kristin Lewicki, Morgan Mckim, Stephanie Lemieux, Gracen Hirschy, and Jane Pagano. With 50sec to go Team Pittsburgh's Stephanie Lemieux made the score 1-1 on a rebound shot from Christina Zalewski and was also hit by Morgan Mckim! The girls tackeled Stephanie and cheered with joy. The teams took a 5min break, and went into over-time. The teams played eight over-times (the game lasted 4hrs 22min) and Assabets Kara Violette scored. :( Assabet thought the game was going to be as easy as stealing candy from a baby. They were wrong. The scoreboard might've said 2-1 Assabet at the end, but in Team Pittsburgh's hearts it was 2-1 them. Team Pittsburgh knew how much they had accomplished and done that year, and they were proud of themselves for making it that far! GO TEAM PITTSBURGH!!!!
