Park City might have viewed itself as the underdog going into Monday night's win-or-go home Utah high school hockey game against Murray at the Steiner ice rink.
But the Miners certainly didn't play that way as they used an aggressive start to capture a 4-0 victory over Murray.
The win forced a winner-take-all Wednesday night game at Steiner for the state title between these same two teams and gave Park City all sorts of momentum.
"We know the situation we are in," said first-year Miner coach Josh Angevine. "We were taking on the underdog role and running with that underdog role."
