MADISON (WKOW) -- Verona was no stranger to close games this year, so they didn't panic on their way to a WIAA Division 1 hockey title game win over Notre Dame.
The Wildcats outlasted Notre Dame 2-1 in overtime for the school's second state hockey title.
And for the second day in a row, it took overtime to do it.
Leo Renlund secured the championship with an unassisted overtime goal.
It was Notre Dame that began the game with momentum.
Brendan Poshak put the Tritons on the board first with assists by Brenden Gruber and Michael McIntee.
Verona thought they had tied the game a short time later, however after review, the goal was disallowed because of goalie interference.
That's where the score stayed through the end of the second period with Kaden Grant of Verona making 22 saves and Bo Buckly of Notre Dame making eight.
They finished with 30 and 18 saves respectively.
Verona returned from the break with a sense of purpose.
Verona's Cale Rufenacht tied the game with an assist from Walker Haessig.
And the Wildcats thought they had the championship in hand with a score from Haessig, but that goal, too, was wiped off the board for interference.
That sent the game to overtime, where Verona was finally able to seal the win.
