US gets late Alt goal to turn away Hildebran, Bombers

KENT — University ran into a brick wall Feb. 20 in a Kent District quarterfinal against Kenston – and had the scars of frustration to prove it.

The brick wall came in the form of Bombers goaltender Jason Hildebran, who gave his squad a serious chance at a stunning upset between the pipes in an epic 47-save evening.

But the Preppers kept chipping away, and Tyler Alt found a slight crevice to get US to the other side, adding another name of the honor roll of the heroes of Hunting Valley in the process.

Alt’s goal with 36 seconds left afforded the Preppers a breakthrough to survive, 1-0, and overcome a performance by Kenston that was the personification of guts.

US (17-15-2) will take on archrival Shaker Heights, a 4-2 winner over Lake Catholic, in a Kent District semifinal at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 23.

It was only the second meeting ever between the fellow News-Herald coverage area squads and first since 2009 at the Kent District.

After this, the Preppers likely won’t want to see a Round 3 for a while.

“I thought our guys didn’t flinch in the third period,” US coach Andy Gerow said. “It kind of gets down to it here. For those seniors, it could be their last game. Sometimes, you don’t know how they’re going to react to that. Our guys came out there, and I thought they kept working at it, kept chipping at it, kept going in the third period and finally punched through there.”
