PLYMOUTH, Mich. — Facing a deficit is nothing new for the Rockford hockey team after coming back from a 3-2 deficit in the state quarterfinal against Grandville and had to score four goals in the third period to comeback in the state semifinals.

However, on Saturday in the Division 1 state championship against Detroit Catholic Central, it was too much to overcome.

The Rams fell down 4-0 in the game before getting on the board late in the third period with a 5-1 final.

Rockford finishes as state runner-up in their first trip to the state championship.
