Olmsted Falls and North Olmsted Skate to 3-3 Tie in HS Hockey Action

Less than 24 hours after a 6-1 win over the Orange Lions, the Olmsted Falls Bulldogs were back on the ice Sunday afternoon, as they and the North Olmsted Eagles skated to a 3-3 tie in Brooklyn.

The tie sets the Bulldogs at 4-1-1 on the season, the Eagles with the tie move to 1-4-2 on the year. The Eagles dropped a 4-1 decision to the Strongsville Mustangs on Saturday.

North Olmsted led it 1-0 after after they were able to convert on a power play, but the Bulldogs scored to tie it at one apiece with the Bulldogs goal going to Mike Kirth-Gruszczynski.

The first period saw the Eagles get another goal, making it a 2-1 game after the first 15 minutes of play.

The two teams played to a stalemate in the second period with either team able to convert. North Olmsted got a goal to go up 3-1 in the third, before Olmsted Falls rallied.

They got a goal from Zach Henley to make it a 3-2 game with 3:46 left in 3rd, and then with 19:3 left to play, Kirth-Gruszczynski found the back of the net for his second goal of the day, with an assist from Jacob Kerkay.

That’s how it would end, with the two teams skating off with the 3-3 tie.

The Bulldogs will be back on the ice on Saturday as they will play at at Avon Lake in Rocky River at 4:15pm. The Eagles will also play on Saturday as they will play the Hudson Explorers at Kent at 2:10pm.

    My cousin plays for North Olmsted and this article is bogus. They wore Black Jerseys tonight and played Olmsted Falls, not Normandy. Also, this article doesn’t mention a single Eagles player. It’s clear Mr. Loede WAS NOT at this game.

      Hi Bob,

      Thank you for your comment. Our article was nothing more than a short recap for Sunday’s game, we never claimed to be on site for the contest (there’s no Brooklyn byline indicating as such) and unfortunately we were not able through various sources to get any information on any of the Eagles goals, therefore all we had information wise was what OFalls tweeted out about the game.

      We will be on site for plenty of games involving the Eagles moving forward and into the new year and will make sure they are well represented on the site. Thank you again and Happy Holidays!
