Ravenwood rallied from a 2-0 deficit in the final 5 minutes to defeated rival and defending state champ Brentwood 3-2 in a GNASH hockey league Friday night.

The Raptors (12-1), tied with the Bruins before the match at A-Game, took the lead in the Gold division standings with its first victory over BHS in the last six games. The Bruins (11-3) had won in  last year's finals and all three regular-season games last year as well as the first Battle of the Woods this season.

Tommy Miller scored a goal to pull RHS within 2-1, then Clayton Williams tied it at 2-2. Caleb Muncie scored the game-winner for Ravenwood with a little less than a minute to play.

"It was a well played game by both teams," first-year Raptors coach Al Rooney said. "I was real proud of my guys. They stuck to the game plan and never wavered or doubted. They battled the whole game and earned themselves a big win.

"The tying and winning goals were scored by our third line unit who really worked their tails off for us tonight. It's a real compliment towards the depth this team has that we beat a very good Brentwood team tonight without any goals from our top four scorers."

Ravenwood, which won the Greater Nashville Area Scholastic Hockey postseason tournament in 2010, and Brentwood will play again Feb. 10 at 6:40 p.m. at the A-Game 1 rink.

"It's a game we can enjoy for the weekend but we still have eight games left on the season to get ourselves ready for the playoffs," Rooney said. "But I'm happy for the guys that they showed up and got a good 'character' win tonight."
