The Finnbilt ‘BB’ Novice team had the Dorchester Dragons come to town on Monday, Jan. 15.
The boys were expecting a challenge and got just that in Game 2 of their round-robin playoff series.
It was a fast-paced game, going back and forth, until the Dragons were able to slide one past St. Marys goalie Vaughn Barr. Ending the first period, the Rock team was down 1-0, until Nick Brintnell found a pass from Donovan McGregor and Cody King to tie up the game.
The second period went scoreless, and the teams entered the third period deadlocked 1-1. Dorchester stole the puck a few minutes into the final frame to take the lead, however St. Marys answered back when Ethan Henderson fired one past their goalie, on a powerplay, to tie the game yet again. Assists on the Henderson tally came from Grayson Gerber and Hunter Pickel.
The Finnbilt team needed one more for the win and found the victory when McGregor received a pass from Brintnell and Kolton McAllister and put the Rock ahead 3-2.
McGregor and Brintnell both finished the game with two points.
The Finnbilt Novices travelled to Mt. Brydges to take on the Cougars on Thursday, Jan. 18 for their next OMHA playoff game.
