Before the game started, all the players that were not seniors went onto the ice and stood there waiting for the seniors to come out. As the seniors came out, the crowd and students got really loud because the fans knew it was going to be a good game. The students talked to all the seniors and wished them well. As the game started, you could hear the students and parents cheering for their favorite player. After the puck was dropped, Kenston won the faceoff and pushed for the first shot. Kenston missed, but Valentino recovered the puck and put in for a Kenston Bomber goal. That goal started the whole massacre of the Bombers tearing apart the Orange Lions. During the game, Valnetino was able to score seven out of the nine goals for Kenston, the other two goals being scored by Remington. As the game went on, the Lions tried to come back from the 9-0 deficit but they could not score because of the Bombers stellar defense and their amazing goalie Jason Hildebran. The Kenston Bombers came away with a victory on senior night with a shutout over the Orange Lions.
