A common creed for all sports teams is to take advantage of whatever your opponent gives you.

The Lincoln-Way district hockey team certainly did that in Game 2 of the Illinois West Founders Cup finals.

When Sandburg was assessed a five-minute penalty, Lincoln-Way exploded for four goals during the extended power-play to take control of the game on its way to a 5-3 win, completing a sweep of the series to clinch the Founders Cup on Sunday, Feb. 23, at Willowbrook Ice Arena.
