REPLAY # 2: Trenton vs. Detroit Catholic (hockey)

REPLAY Season 2 involves a classic high school hockey rivalry in Hockey Town, USA (Detroit). The Trenton Trojans and the Detroit Catholic Central Shamrocks are two hockey powerhouses with a rivalry so intense they still meet to play twice a year despite being part of different state classifications. One of their storied match ups took place in 1999. In their second meeting, with the score tied at 4-4, Trenton player Kurt La Tarte had his jugular accidentally slit open by another player’s skate, a tragedy that almost cost him his life. The two teams convened on the ice to pray for their fellow athlete, and the game ended in a tie.  Catholic Central went on to be State Champs that year, while Trenton’s team never recovered from the shake up and their season hit the skids. Ironically, Catholic Central’s only loss that year was their first match up with Trenton.  In order for these old wounds to heal, it’s time to settle the score once and for all.
