2 Teams Named Ohio Hockey Champs After 7 Overtime Game


UPDATED: Monday March 10, 2014 8:55 AM

Nobody lost - and two teams were declared winners - after a marathon, seven-overtime high school ice hockey state championship game in Ohio.
    
Cleveland St. Ignatius and Sylvania Northview fought through regulation and seven overtimes tied 1-1 on Saturday.
    
Then, according to the sanctioning Ohio High School Athletic Association, both head coaches, school administrators and the OHSAA decided the game at Nationwide Arena would end in a tie because of concerns about player safety for the two worn-out teams.
    
There is no shootout procedure in Ohio high school hockey.
    
David Marsh had a championship-game record 77 saves for Northview (17-13-2) in the longest title game in state history. Dylan McKeon had 31 stops for St. Ignatius (30-4-6).
