Flyers Edge Waterloo In Overtime
The Leamington Flyers completed their first two games of the season in Brantford, and did so in winning fashion. They closed out the GOJHL showcase tournament with a 4-3 overtime win over Waterloo.
Leamington overcame early undisciplined play and a pair of ejections on their way to the victory.
Throughout much of the game, Leamington trailed in shots and on the scoreboard as it was 1-0 after one period then 3-1 after two periods. Shots read 28-15 in favour of Waterloo.
In the third however Leamington came out flying tying the game in a two minute span forcing the extra time.
In OT, much of me frame was spent in their defensive zone, but Leamington was quick to capitalize on a turn-over as Griffin Robinson scored on a breakaway as Leamington prevailed 4-3. Robinson finished with a goal and a pair of assists while Zach Guilbeault, Cody Schneider and Blake Bain rounded out the scoring.
The Flyers host the Vipers on Thursday night. Lasalle lost 5-2 to Listowel yesterday at the Showcase tournament, with Brandon Soto and Brett Vorshuk scoring for the Vipers.
