January 29, 2014 - Putting the final touches on an OAA Red Division championship wasn't easy the past week as the Dragons couldn't get the final victory to clinch the title.

Lake Orion had a great effort last week against Rochester United on Friday night before settling for a 2-2 tie. The Dragons outplayed Rochester for much of the game.

The game was a strong test for both teams. Rochester entered the game ranked fifth in the state in Division One while Lake Orion was ranked eighth.

Rochester needed a goal with 3:48 left in the third period to tie the game at 2-2. After an eight-minute scoreless overtime, the teams settled for the draw.

A victory against Clarkston on the weekend could have secured the division championship but the Wolves shut out the Dragons, 4-0, in LO's final league game. The Dragon's finished 4-1-1 in league play which should be enough for at least a share of the title.

The Dragons sit atop the OAA Red but it is possible that Berkley United could secure a tie for the league championship with victory over Rochester United. The game was scheduled for Wednesday.

The Rochester United game saw a packed house at the Onyx and some solid play from both teams. RU netted the first goal but Ben Brock scored on a pass from Jason Grieb to tie it at 1-1.

Alex Giwa put the Dragons ahead 2-1with an assist from Drew Casey in the third period but RU tied the game with 3:48 left in regulation.

Lake Orion's goalie, Logan Aldrich, played well throughout the game and made some big stops in overtime to secure the tie.
