Sharks Earn First Win

In the Provinical Jr Hockey League, it took seven games but the Wheatley Sharks finally earned their first win last night by nipping Essex 2-1 in overtime.

Cole Butler scored the winner, at 2:52 of the overtime session.

The game was tied at one after a period, with Carter Mastronardi giving the Sharks a 1-0 lead at 13:28, but Adam Gaiarin got the equalizer a minute and a half later.

It stayed deadlocked at one until Butler's overtime tally.

Dylan Zelco made 24 saves to earn the win in goal for the Shark, as they are now, 1-5-0 and 1 on the season.

The 73's fall to 4-1-0-1 and they'll host the Admirals this evening.
