MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. — Cheshire’s Michael Flynn played in his 104th and final hockey game for Trinity College on Saturday night.
Man, did he and the Bantams go out in style.
Lifted by Ethan Holdaway’s goal that snapped a 2-2 tie with 3:52 left to play, and then salting it away with two empty-net goals, Trinity beat Wisconsin-Stevens Point 5-2 in the NCAA Division III final at the University of Minnesota’s Ridder Arena.
It was the first national ice hockey championship for the Bantams. For that matter, it was their first appearance in the national final.
Flynn, a defenseman, was on the ice for the final minute and a half as Wisconsin-Stevens Points, scrapping to re-tie the game, pulled its goalie. Instead, the Bantams scored twice into the empty net in the final 35 seconds to seal the crown. The victory capped a Final Four weekend in which Flynn was named Third Team All-American for a second straight season.
