2013 OHSAA Ice Hockey State
Nationwide Arena, Columbus
March 8 & 9, 2013
State Championship Game
Shaker Heights 3, Sylvania Northview 1
Shaker Heights Wins Fourth OHSAA Ice Hockey State
Red Raiders win first title in 12 years, defeat
Sylvania Northview 3-1
COLUMBUS, Ohio Fourth-ranked Shaker Heights held off No. 5 Sylvania
Northviews offensive pressure to defeat the defending champions 3-1 in the
2013 OHSAA ice hockey state championship game Saturday evening at Nationwide
Arena in Columbus.
The state championship victory gave the Red Raiders (28-7-0) their fourth
title in 11 state tournament appearances. Shaker Heights last championship
came in 2001. Four championships propels Shaker Heights into sole possession
of third place on the all-time ice hockey champions list behind Lakewood St.
Edward (11) and Bowling Green (6).
Two first period goals put Shaker Heights in the drivers seat from the
onset, despite continued pressure from Northview. The Red Raiders scored
first, just three minutes into the game, on a goal from senior Jonathan
Greenberg. Northview answered with a power-play goal just a minute later in
the period. The Wildcats goal was scored by senior Nick LaPlante, assisted
by senior Zander Pryor and junior Kooper Carter.
Shaker Heights senior John Longman gave the Red Raiders back the lead for
good later in the first period with a goal on a good crossing pass from
teammate Connor Siwik. The senior Siwik would score Shaker Heights third
goal, assisted by senior Jacob Shick and junior Max Yauch, on a 5-3 man
power-play advantage with 9:13 remaining in the game. Yauch was credited
with two assists in the game.
Red Raiders senior goaltender Eric Sterin weathered consistent offensive
pressure from Northview, stopping 25 of 26 shots on the evening, allowing
only the one goal. Shaker Heights totaled 23 shots on goal offensively.
Northview, playing in its third championship game in four years, finishes as
state runner-up for the fifth time in program history. The Wildcats were
runners-up in 2010 and now 2013, winning the schools one title in 2012.
Northview finishes the season at 27-8-0.
