Liberty came back and tied Eds.

US and Toledo St. Francis tied 3-3. St. Francis led 3-1 in the third, and US scored twice in the last ten minutes to tie it. Neither team looked particularly impressive. TSF didn't have a great offensive attack, but US did a terrible job at clearing the puck from their own end, they left a lot of rebounds in the slot. That accounted for all three TSF goals.

Seems as though the top of Ohio high school hockey is wide-open this year and, possibly, for the first time in forever, a team from south of US 30 might be in the mix (O. Liberty).

I was just thinking that as I read yesterday's scores. There is a ton of parity, more than I can recall in a given year for the past 12.

Been saying this all year so far, and could not agree more. Going to be a fun few months of hockey

Props to Padua for getting so many of the state's top teams together for one tournament- this is really a stacked field.
