On a snowy Thursday night the section rivals OLSH and Ringgold took to the ice for their last meeting in the regular season. The game was played at the RMU Island Sports Center on Neville Island at 8:30 PM. No different from most games, the OLSH boys controlled the tempo of the game. The Ringgold Rams had a hard time adjusting to the Chargers’ speed, and hard-hitting game.The hitting was started by one person, Mark Zukowski ‘17 who sent a Ram forward airborne into the visitor’s bench. In the first period, the Chargers outscored the Rams 2-0, but in the second period the Rams surged to score two goals. After the Rams had tied the game, the Chargers answered with two more goals. However, the game would end prematurely. The officials called the game soon after Ethan Weisser, ‘18 laid on a clean, hard hit on one of the Ram defenseman, and knocked him out cold. Soon after Ringgold parents started calling the student body names, disrespecting the school name, and threatening to call the school to get students in trouble. The Ringgold parents attempted to start a verbal jousting match to get the students kicked out of the game, but the students ignored the parents. Recognizing that the students were intentionally ignoring the parents to stay out of trouble, the RMU security guard warned the Ringgold parents that they would be kicked out of the arena, if the behavior continued, but the parents kept yelling at the OLSH students so the security guard kicked them out. However, they refused to leave. While all of this is happening, the knocked out Ram was still laying on the ice just starting to come to as the EMT’s arrived.. The referees finally called the game after the Ram parents refused to leave the arena giving OLSH the win 4-2. It was a wild night for OLSH hockey.
