Lincoln Stars defeat USA U18 Team, 6-5 in a Shootout (You read that right)

The last place Lincoln Stars played what was easily their best game of the season and beat Team USA in a shootout tonight. This is a USA team with seven projected first round picks on their roster. USA lead the game 4-0 at one point in the second period after a beautiful goal from Jack Hughes.

The Stars didn’t let down like they have in so many other games, however, slowly chipping away at the lead, tying the game late in the third at 5-5, sending the game to overtime, followed by a shootout. Matthew Barbolini scored in the fourth frame of the shootout to send the Stars home happy.
