Apollo Tops Breck In Overtime For First Tourney Win In School History [AUDIO]
The Apollo Eagles boys hockey team topped Breck 1-0 in overtime to cap an exhilarating evening at Xcel Energy Center. The Eagles advance to take on top-seeded Hermantown on Friday afternoon (1 PM, AM 1390 The Fan).
After a scoreless regulation, the Eagles got the game-winner from Brandon Bissett with 2:53 left in the first overtime. Gino Lucia gained the zone for Apollo before slinging the puck to a wide-open Bissett, who buried the puck to give Apollo their first-ever win in the state tournament.
After the game Bissett said it was always a dream of his to score a goal in the state tourney, which he grew up watching on TV.
