Icecats defeated by Carmel in OT

The Icecats gather before the game and have a brief talk.

On Wednesday, Dec. 5, the District 128 boys hockey team, the IceCats, faced off against local rival Carmel  in the “Battle of 176” as it’s known, referring to the street that separates Libertyville and Carmel Catholic High Schools. In a hard-fought game, the IceCats lost in an OT shootout, 3-2.

With the score tied at the end of regulation, the game was sent to a shootout. Carmel drove in the first shot, and then senior Kyle Junkunc and freshman Sean Goldberg both narrowly missed. The next shot, made by Carmel, was the winning shot. The IceCats look to bounce back against Warren next week, on Monday, Dec. 10.
