(NEW) EASTVIEW HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS VARSITY HOCKEY FALLS TO BURNSVILLE 3-2 

No puck luck for the Lightning. That summarizes the outcome of the section semifinal, a hard-fought 2-3 overtime loss to Burnsville. Lauren Johnson was spectacular in the nets, turning aside 43 Blaze shots.

The Lightning struck quickly, at :12 of the first period. Avery Chesek and Mikayla Kelley executed a perfect two-on-one with Chesek finding Kelley on the edge of the crease for the goal. Nora Stepan assisted, as well. The Lightning hit again at 2:48 when Kelley scored her second of the game. Assists to Chesek and Stepan. The Blaze scored late in the first when Blaze sticks were flying above Johnson’s head and the puck was directed into the net. The period ended 2-1.

There was no scoring in the second and the Lightning were left shaking their heads over a quick whistle that nullified a goal.

At 8:19 of the third, Burnsville tied the score. There were many opportunities for both teams, but the goalies were stout. 2-2 at the end of regulation.

The game ended with more sticks flying in front of the Lightning goal. 2-3.

The season ends with the Lightning’s record at 18-7-2. Thank you to everyone who supported the girls this season. Despite the end, it was a great ride. #ChallengeAccepted Go Lightning!!

NIGHT OF ANCIENT TALES- EASTVIEW’S WINTER AND ONE ACT PLAYS

Join us for a Night of Ancient Tales, as Eastview’s Performing Arts Department presents two plays; Antigone  and Tales From Odysseus.  

Performance dates are February 20, 21, and 22 at 7PM in the Eastview Performing Arts Center.  All tickets are general admission and are available at the Box Office starting one hour before showtime.  Ticket prices are Adults: $7 and Senior Citizens/Students: $5.

Antigone: 

It takes guts to stand up to the most powerful man in the country. Especially when you’re 15. After both of her brothers kill each other in opposing sides of a war, Antigone dares to defy her uncle, King Creon, by burying her ‘traitor’ brother. When Creon discovers that Antigone has performed the burial despite his command, he orders her to be walled up in a cave alive thus starving her to death. Creon does not listen to the pleadings of Ismene, Antigone’s sister, nor his son Haemon, who is engaged to Antigone. Haemon goes to Antigone’s cave, sees that she has hung herself and kills himself as well. Hearing this, his mother also takes her own life at the fateful end of this Greek tragedy.

The Search For Odysseus:

The Search for Odysseus tells the story of the Odyssey, from the point of view of Telemachus, his son. After the Trojan War, Odysseus does not return with the other soldiers, and Telemachus sets out to find him and in so doing embarks on a voyage of self discovery.
