Kevin Robinson was having quite a night through three periods of Fairfield Warde/Ludlowe’s Division II state championship boys hockey game with East Catholic of Manchester at Yale’s Ingalls Rink on Wednesday night,
He scored twice in the first period to give coach Mark Pettorini’s 13th-seeded squad a 2-0 lead. And, after No. 2 East Catholic went in front 3-2 in the third period, Robinson added his third tally.
Fairfield looked to have won the game at the final horn, but Tom Kryspin’s goal in a scramble was waved off when the goal light never flashed, an indication that time had run off the clock.
The Mustangs carried their momentum from outshooting the Eagles’ 11-2 in the third period into the extra session.
When an East Catholic player fell on a loose puck in the goal crease, Fairfield was awarded a penalty shot with 5:18 remaining in the 15-minute sudden-victory overtime.
Robinson toed the red line and East Catholic’s Thomas Usseglio took his place between the pipes.
“As soon as the goalie came out I knew I had to deke him, because he wasn’t going to give me a shot,” Robinson said after he skated to the goalie’s right and tucked the puck into the empty net to provide the 4-3 final.
“It’s an unreal feeling (scoring four goals in a state final). It’s every kid’s dream.”
