Maybe some of the Wings fans here were a part of this ?

Fox Sports Network will broadcast the premiere of the “Gatorade REPLAY II”, airing nationally Sunday, June 20.

This season’s REPLAY featured a Classic rematch between the 1999 teams of two Detroit area hockey powerhouses, the Trenton Trojans and the Detroit Central Catholic (DCC) Shamrocks. 

REPLAY the Series, Fueled by Gatorade, re-stages classic games between some of the nation’s biggest high school sports rivalries.

BACKGROUND:

Trenton and DCC were unable to finish their second match-up of the 1999 season after a life threatening injury forced an early end to the game with the score tied 4-4.  After this game, the Trenton players were unable to fully recover from their teammate’s injury and ended up losing in the first round of the state hockey playoffs.  However, DCC went on to win the state title, but had one loss on their record thanks Trenton’s win during their first game. 

The Trenton DCC rematch took place in Detroit on May 9, 2010 with crowds of fans, friends and family cheering the teams on.  The players were also joined by some of the biggest names in hockey including Gatorade REPLAY game day commissioner, Mr. Hockey, Gordie Howe, as well as Scotty Bowman and Brendan Shanahan who served as honorary coaches for Catholic Central and Trenton, respectively.
