Following the opening period of their best-of-seven series in the GOJHL Western Conference playoffs, the first place Chatham Maroons and eighth place Lambton Shores Predators have been dead even.

The Maroons took game one, but in game two, in front of their home crowd, the Lambton Shores Predators squeaked out a 3-2 win to even the series 1-1. The win was the first in franchise history for the Lambton Shores Predators.

Ferdinando Colella scored in the first period to give Lambton Shores an early lead.

In the second, Maroons captain Sean Myers tied the game, with the assist going to All-Rookie team member, Brayden Hopkins. On the powerplay, Kyle Brothers, who was one of the GOJHL’s top scorers this season, scored to retake the lead for Lambton Shores.

After Brennan Feasey again knotted the game to open the third period, Predators forward Nick Sproveiro potted the game winning goal for Lambton Shores. Morpeth’s Jim McKinlay, who played last season for the Dresden Kings, assisted on the game winning goal.

Thamesville’s Dillon Liberty and Ridgetown’s Bryan Boersma, as well as former Wallaceburg Laker Sam Jasmin, also play for the Lambton Shores Predators.

Game 3 is Sunday night, 7:00pm, at Memorial Arena in Chatham.
