North Royalton faced off against Riverside in NCHSHL action on December 20th and the two teams skated to a 3-3 tie. The Bears finally showed some moxie as they fought back from a three goal deficit, out shooting the Beavers 37-20, to earn the tie. The Bears found themselves in familiar territory as Riverside scored early to take the lead. The Beavers added two more before North Royalton answered with one of their own, a power play tally scored by Cam Cook assisted by Timmy Orlosky. The Bears cut the Riverside lead to one with just over three minutes left in the middle period when Paul Jablonski netted his 1st of the game assisted by Dylan Kovach and Mike Ambrose. Jablonski scored his 2nd of the game midway through the final period, tying the game at 3 apiece, assisted by Nicolai Kolasinski and Nick Magro. Despite many chances in the final frame and in OT for the Bears, they couldn't get the game winner and were forced to settle for a split. The Bears now sit at 3-3-1 in the North Coast HS Hockey League and 10-5-2 overall. Next up for North Royalton- the Lake Catholic Cougar Holiday Extravaganza- in Mentor, OH, December 26-28th.
