Northview completes comeback; returns to championship

Northview hockey celebrates a comeback win in the state semifinals.

The Northview hockey team will have the opportunity to play for a second straight state championship Saturday night after scoring four unanswered goals in the semifinals against Olentangy Liberty.

The Wildcats found themselves down 2-0 after 1 period, but it wasn't enough to knock them out.

Northview squared things up in the 2nd after Drew Crandall and Zander Pryor lit the lamp.

In the third period, Nick LaPlante blasted a slap shot past freshman goalie Cam Perry for the game winner.

The state championship will be Saturday at Nationwide Arena against Shaker Heights at 7:00.
