A Difficult Loss

Nolan's hockey team competed in a holiday hockey tournament this weekend.  They won all three of their scheduled games which secured them the second spot in the semi-finals!
The won their semi-final game by a landslide and advanced to the finals.
The boys were so pumped for this game.  They were beyond excited.  The team they were playing in the finals had won all of their games and by a large margin.  They also had a bench of at least ten players to our bench of 5. 
The first period of the finals are boys played the defense.  The score at the end of the first was 1-0.  We were losing.
The second period our boys came alive and scored 2 goals.  The score at the end of the second was 2-1, us!
No score in the third until there was 5 seconds left and the other team scored, tying the game at 2-2.
In sudden death overtime, the other team scored and won the game.  It was a very disappointed loss.  There was not a dry eye in the locker room after the game.  I felt horrible for the boys, but the recovered quickly.  And bottom line, they played an amazing game.  I am so proud of Nolan.  He played hard, very hard!
