Stoneman Douglas hockey team pulls upset, wins state title

Parkland, Florida’s Stoneman Douglas High School claimed a state championship in hockey on Sunday.

The South Florida school won two games on Sunday, including a big upset over the tournament’s top seed, to claim the prize.

“Marjory Stoneman Douglas High has won the Lightning High School Hockey League Tier 1 state title with a 7-4 victory Sunday over Jesuit,” an ESPN report said. “Fourth-seeded Stoneman Douglas upset top-seeded East Lake 3-1 in an elimination game Sunday morning before rolling to the victory over Jesuit later in the day.”

The championship, of course, comes close on the heels of the tragic shooting at Stoneman Douglas, during which 17 people were killed.
