It was a wild finish in Vernon on Wednesday night!
After going down 5-4 with only 1:07 left to play in the third period, Holden Katzalay scored a late game-tying goal with only 15.9 seconds left and Riley Hayles notched the winner in overtime. It is the second time the Eagles have beaten the Vipers in overtime, after a 2-1 OT win at the BCHL showcase earlier this season.
Three Eagles also scored their first BCHL goals in the game: Max Mohagen, Austin Herron, and Matthew McKim. Andrew Clark, an affiliated player from the Creston Valley Thunder Cats, also recorded his first BCHL point in his first game with an assist on Herron’s goal.
