The Shady Side Academy hockey team dominated play in its game Sunday against St. Mary's Prep Hockey of Orchard Park, Mich. until well into the third period, before suffering a heartbreaking 2-1 loss.

The Indians started out of the blocks fast. They had two first-period goals waived off before Jake Lydon finally got the first goal of the game scored at 6:52 of the second period, with assists from Jake Kleindl and Keaton Baum.

The game remained 1-0 deep into the third period when St Mary's tied it up.

The Indians had a number of chances and near misses in the third, but were unable to pull out a goal.

Finally, with under a minute to go and the game tied at 1-1, St. Mary's scored the game-winner.

Scott Trellis played a strong game in goal, stopping 42 of 44 shots.

The Indians will be hosting their annual Thanksgiving tournament this Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
