Beast Battle Back But Lose Game 4-3 in Overtime
BRAMPTON, ONTARIO - Jackson Leef had a goal and an assist but the Beast would fall in 4-3 in overtime to the Adirondack Thunder on Sunday afternoon.
The Brampton Beast took on the Adirondack Thunder Sunday afternoon in the second game of a back-to-back.
Brampton, who was coming off a win yesterday, was looking to make it two in a row for the first time this season.
Adirondack was able to find twine first however, off the stick of defenseman Jake Linhart. With the Beast on the penalty kill, Linhart lined up his shot and was able to beat Beast starter Jake Paterson at 11:55.
Brampton wouldn't be deterred, and fought back to even the score a few moments later. Anthony Beauregard found Nathan Todd in the slot and the skilled forward was able to shovel it past Thunder starter Colton Phinney at 14:14.
Brampton would head into the first intermission tied up 1-1 but behind in shots by a count of 10-6.
It was back and forth second period for the two teams, but the Beast would emerge with a 2-1 lead courtesy of Jackson Leef. The hard-working forward would take a beautiful pass from Matt Petgrave and send a backhand shot into the top corner of the Thunder net.
That gave the Beast a 2-1 lead at 1:57. Brampton would keep that lead after 40 minutes of play. The shots on goal favoured the Thunder after two periods, to the tune of 21-11.
Adirondack started the third off on the right foot and were able to score a quick couple goals on Paterson in order to take a 3-2 lead early in the third frame.
The Beast fought back and tied the game up at 16:09 with the goal by David Vallorani. The talented forward took the pass from Matt Petgrave and was able to find twine and tie the match up late in the third.
With less than a minute remaining in overtime, Denis Kravchenko took the drop past and aimed a perfect shot past Paterson in order to secure Adirondack's overtime winner. The final score of the game was 4-3 and the shots were 26-25 in favour of the Beast.
Notes: Molson Three Stars: 3) Ward (ADK) 2) Todd (BRA) 1) Leef (BRA) Brampton went one-for-two on the man advantage. Adirondack finished the contest at one-for-two as well. The Beast next play on Saturday October 27th. It's a 4:00 PM game against the Newfoundland Growlers.
