OAA Red final up next on MIPrepZone

Earlier this year we had our first hockey broadcast on MIPrepZone - Lake Orion vs. Clarkston.
This Saturday night we'll be at it again, as we're set to broadcast the OAA Red Tournament championship game between Rochester United and Stoney Creek.
You can listen to the game live and come back after it ends to watch our video broadcast. I will be posting the story - with the broadcast in it - to MIPrepZone Saturday morning. So check back in then.
The two teams have split their season series, with Rochester beating Stoney Creek 5-2 back in November and the Cougars topping the United squad, 3-0, late last month.
