The Peninsula Panthers took a tough overtime loss against the Westshore Wolves last week.
On Wednesday, Dec. 18 the Panthers traveled to Bear Mountain Arena and had a promising start against the Wolves.
The team trailed for most of the first and second periods, but opened up a 5-3 lead very late in the final minutes of the third.
Unfortunately for the Panthers, Wolves sniper Kyle Richter put one past Panthers goalie Stephen Heslop with two minutes remaining in the game and then, with less than two seconds remaining, Wolves Brett Lervold shot one past Heslop sending the game into an extra frame.
Wolves’ Tyler Smith completed the comeback beating Heslop at the 4:33 mark of overtime and finishing the game with a 6-5 loss for the Panthers.
Connor Logan led all Panthers scorers beating Chester twice and picking up a helper and was named the night’s second star.
Also scoring for the locals were Tate Coughlin, Nick Kean and Grayden Hohl who was picked up from the Saanich Midget AA team for the game.
