WINCHESTER – After falling behind 1-0 in the first period, the South Dundas Major Midget B Lions turned it around here Monday night (October 21) to claim a 4-2 win over the North Dundas Demons.
The Demons went up 1-0 in the first period on a Patrick Gibson goal assisted by Spencer Carruthers, and that was it until the Lions regrouped in the second.
Nash Nesbitt got it rolling just a little over one minute into the second period with help from Trey Suddard.
The 1-1 tie held until the final minute of the frame when Jordan Smail struck to put the Lions up by one with help from Riley Black.
The game remained close, and although the Lions carried the majority of the play, they had trouble staying out of the penalty box in the third period.
That provided the stage for a Demons power play goal from Gibson (his second) which tied the game 2-2.
Then the Lions took over.
Smail added his second of the game (again with help from Riley Black), to give the Lions a 3-2 lead with 2:59 left on the clock.
Thirty-six seconds later, Evan Mullin (assisted by Riley Barry) beat Demons goaltender Cashelle Baldwin for the insurance.
The game ended with 1:13 remaining on the clock (game running time had expired).
Josh Martineau was in net for the Lions win.
The Midget B Lions are at home to Alexandria tonight, Wednesday, October 23. Game time is 8 p.m.
