The Greenway boys hockey team on Tuesday made a run at becoming the first Section 7A rep to knock off Hermantown since December 2012, but the Hawks overcame a 2-2 third-period tie with goals from Blake Biondi and Tyler Watkins to hold off the Raiders 4-2 in a nonconference game at Hodgins-Berardo Arena in Coleraine.
Top-ranked Hermantown led 2-0 after Watkins' first goal, but Wes Johnson halved No. 3 Greenway's deficit in the second period and Christian Miller forged a 2-2 tie 12:31 into the third. Biondi's game-winner followed less than two minutes later as the Hawks took the rematch of last year's section final.
