More than 50 shots had been fired on goal through three periods of the Division 3 Hockey Final on March 8, 2008. But none had found the back of the net as Flint Powers Catholic and Calumet headed into overtime at Compuware Sports Arena.
To that point, Powers had outshot the Copper Kings 31-20 as the Chargers sought their first MHSAA Finals championship in this sport. But Calumet turned the tables in the extra period, outshooting Powers 5-1 and burying the game’s lone goal when Logan Rastello scored unassisted 4:18 into extra time.
For the game, Tyler Junttila made 32 saves for the Copper Kings, who locked up the sixth championship in program history.
Said Rastello after to the Flint Journal: “I just shot at the net, went and got the rebound and buried it five-hole," Rastello said. "That was a great win. I don't know how to describe it. I'm shaking.”
