Flags stay alive with overtime victory

 

The Mooretown Flags are still alive in the Junior C playoffs with a 3-2 overtime victory in game four against Belle River.

 

Mooretown, playing for their season, opened the scoring just thirty-five seconds into the gane, as Donny Bowling scored to make it 1-0. Despite being outshot 15-9 in the period, the Flags were able to keep the Canadiens off the boards and hold the lead heading into the second period.

 

In the second, Josh Teschke scored his 9th of the playoffs 1:04 into the second period to make it a 2-0 game for the Flags. But Belle River would finally respond, as Branden Larocque cut the lead in half with his early second period goal. Before the end of the period would go out, the Canadiens would erase the 2-0 deficit, as Nik Dobrich scored to make it a 2-2 game after the second.

 

In the third, neither team would get the go ahead goal, as the Canadiens outshot the Flags 11-9.

 

Overtime would be needed and in overtime, it didn't take the Flags long to put the game away, as Mike Burns scored on the first shot of overtime, twenty-six seconds into the period to give the Flags a 3-2 victory.

 

Jordan Gladwish made 36 saves in the victory.

 

With the win, Mooretown stays alive in the series, but still must win out to move on as they are down 3-1. Game five goes March 11th in Belle River.
