Maroons Stage Dramatic Comeback For Game Two Win
The Chatham Maroons dug themselves a big hole in game two of their opening round of the playoffs with the Lasalle Vipers. By the end of the first period the Maroons were trailing the Vipers by a score of 3-0, and it could have been worse.
The Maroons replaced starting goaltender Bryce Walcarius with Kevin Linker to start the second period. Linker made several big saves in the period, and although Chatham still had not scored, there was more play in the Vipers end.
The score remained 3-0 after two.
The Maroons got on the board when AJ Ryan scored while on the powerplay at the 2:03 mark. This created some fire in the building and a little over two minutes later Evan Wells of the Maroons scored to make it a 3-2 game.
Chatham really had the Vipers on their heels as they tried to protect their one goal lead, but two minutes later Cam Symons tied the game at 3-3. Chatham out shot the Vipers 19-9 in the third, but the score stood to force overtime.
At the 0:53 mark of the overtime period, Maroons captain Dallas Maurovic capped off the comeback, scoring to give the Maroons a win and tie the series at 1-1.
The Maroons resume the series in Lasalle Saturday night, and then return
home for game four, Sunday night, 7pm.
