The Thrilla At East Chapel Hilla

I think the title of this story says it all. Cross town rivals squaring off to see who is the best team in Chapel Hill. The setting couldn’t have been any better for a game that lived up to all the hype. Chapel Hill Tigers opened up with the first goal of the game and neither team was up by more than 2 goals. East scored the next one while Chapel Hiil added one more to end the 1st quarter 1-2 Chapel Hill. The 2nd quarter went in favor of our Wildcats who outscored Chapel Hill 4-3 going into halftime all tied up at 5’s. Both teams determined to be the victor came out scrapping in the 3rd with neither team scoring ending the 3rd quarter still tied up 5-5. The 4th quarter was a battle from the first time they blew the whistle. The teams both had multiple possessions and both teams each scored 1 goal ending the game in a 6-6 tie. Here comes OT everyone. The first OT Chapel Hill HS had possession most of the time. Both teams had there chances to score but neither did with the first OT period going scoreless. The 2nd OT period was a short one with East Chapel Hill Senior Chris Cox scooping up the groundball and heading straight for the goal. He ran past a couple of people, then spun past one more and it was Cox and Hornik the goalie from Chapel Hill one on one. Cox made a fake a stuck it over Horniks left shoulder just 12 seconds into the 2nd OT. Game over East 7 and Chapel Hill 6 in double OT. Great game guys.
