PROVIDENCE â€“ Thereâ€™s only one way to describe what occurred over the final 3:46 of the final stanza at Brown University on Friday night â€“ surreal.
It seemed as if defending state champion Mount St. Charles Academy was prepared to put the finishing touches on a fantastic 2-1 victory over Hendricken High in the opening tilt of the R.I. Championship Division best-of-three series at Meehan Auditorium on Friday night, but then the unimaginable â€“ the surreal â€“ happened.
In the span of 55 seconds during that 3:46 time frame, the never-say-die Hawks notched three goals (and added an empty-netter for good measure) to post an incredible â€“ or incredibly sad for those on the hill â€“ 5-2 triumph over the Mounties.
