Baldwin High School's varsity defenseman Max Milan scored a shorthanded goal with 3 minutes, 22 seconds left in the third period to narrow Indiana Area High School's lead to 3-2 in the teams' outdoor ice hockey game at Penguins Pond at Highmark Stadium on Monday.
But Indiana's forward Camden Lydick put the Highlanders away with an empty-net goal with four seconds left, snapping Baldwin's four-game unbeaten streak with a 4-2 defeat.
Baldwin (7-3-1 and tied for first place in Section 4 of the PIHL's Open Class) outshot Indiana over the course of the game, 28-20, but three unanswered goals from the Little Indians (10-2-1 and alone in first place in Open Section 3) in the middle of the game proved to be too much.
Indiana has now won seven of its past eight games.
Monday marked the first of two meetings between Baldwin and Indiana during the 2012-13 regular season, but it was a rematch of a 2011-12 PIHL Open Cup quarterfinals game, which was also won by Indiana, 5-3.
Forward Anthony Alaimo assisted on Milan's shorthanded goal. Also scoring for Baldwin was forward Dylan Davey, who finished off helpers from Alaimo and defenseman Kenny Dee on the power play to open the game's scoring in the second period.
But Indiana's forward Dominick Glavach scored less than three minutes later at even strength off of assists from forward Jess Bartholow and defenseman Thomas Petro. Petro then found the net on a power play—unassisted—late in the second period, and teammate and defenseman Noah Moody made the score 3-1 with an unassisted marker at even strength shortly before Milan's goal.
The game-clinching empty-netter was unassisted.
Baldwin's Ryan Beermann made 16 saves in goal. Indiana's Austin Moody made 26.
Baldwin returns to action with a home game at Castle Shannon Borough's Ice Castle Arena on Thursday at 8 p.m against winless Connellsville Area High School. Indiana next plays on Wednesday against Keystone Oaks High School.
