Hampton mounts big comeback to defeat North Hills Hampton coach Craig Clontz took over the ranks for the Talbots this season and was looking to see how his young squad would fair against Penguin Cup AAA Semi Finalist North Hills. North Hills was up to its old trick as the Indians raced to a 3-0 lead in the games first 8 minutes on goals by Derek Stein, Ryan Costello and Dan Peters. NH continued its pressure on freshman goaltender Lindsay Bonasso with 14 first period shots, but she came up big and kept the Indians from further damage. The teams traded goals in the 2nd period as Bonasso was pelted with 11 more shots and the teams went to the break with North Hills in command 4-1. As the teams left the ice, North Hills looked as they didn't even need to show up for the third only surrendering 9 shot through two periods. Then Hampton struck quickly in the third as Dave DiSanti and Neil Kluber tallied to bring the Talbots within 4-3. Then the magic continued as Chris Faith played a bank shot and tied the score at 4-4 with 5:43 remaining. North Hills almost regained the lead as Dan Scelfo just missed at the 5:02 mark. In the same motion Ben Daniels sent Mark Persic in alone and he made no mistake beat the NH goaltender between the legs on the ice to but Hampton in the St Margarets final for the first time ever !
