Clippers Dash Red Devils Hopes With Late Comeback
Unfortunately for the Wallaceburg Red Devils, it was the Clippers who rallied, coming back from a 10-8 deficit heading into the third period to win 13-11, and knot the opening round Ontario Junior B Lacrosse playoff series at 2-2.
Now, the teams will prepare for a fifth and deciding game Tuesday, July 8 in Windsor.
Saturday, the Red Devils got solid performances yet again from late season acquisitions Connor Smith, Kevin Conroy, and Dan Charlton, as well as hometown product Mike Myers, who is the Red Devils’ leading playoff scorer.
Myers had five points including the opening goal of the game in the loss.
Smith had two goals and an assist, while Charlton had two goals and two assists, and Conroy had a goal and three assists. Other Wallaceburg scorers included Parker Gilhuly, Mitch Burton, and Mitch Gagnier.
