Wednesday Night Comeback


Ottawa ON

The lone Wednesday night match up had Pembroke travel Highway 7 on route to visit the Jim Durrell centre.  Ottawa (1-3-0-0) would be chomping at the bit to secure a home victory as they entertained the 3-1-0-0 Lumber Kings. The first featured two fiesty teams combining for nine penalties. Pembroke out shot OJS 11-9 but it was Samuel Hatto’s 2nd of the year that gave the Jr. Sens a 1-0 advantage heading into the break. The 2nd was tight and Ottawa successfully killed off a Colin Marhshall kneeing minor just shy of the midway point of the 2nd. Shortly after, Adrien Bisson was able to convert on his first of 2018. Less than a minute later, Elie Boulerice continued his strong offensive start this fall burying his 3rd and giving the Jr. Sens a sizable 3-0 lead.

Michael Douglas got on the board with a powerplay goal. ’98 born Malcolm Arseneau’s timely tally with 26 seconds left in the frame morphed the momentum in Pembroke’s favor as they once again entered the intermission down a goal. The Lumber Kings were able to properly channel and utilize their oncoming momentum just 1:05 into the final period – Arseneau made good on his 2nd of the game. The teams remained deadlocked until Connor Warnholtz completed the comeback with a powerplay goal in the back half of the 3rd. An empty netter from Renfrew’s Jacob Collins sealed it for PLK who improve to 4-1-0-0. Jake Smith got the win making 18 saves.
