Game Story

The Monarchs kept their season alive after a 2-1 overtime victory over the Newfoundland Growlers at The Rinks at Exeter in New Hampshire Friday night.

The Monarchs started the game with some pace, outshooting the Growlers 13-7 in the first period. Both Michael Garteig and Charles Williams would have perfect first periods to keep the game at a scoreless tie after 20 minutes of play.

In the second period Manchester did manage to beat Gartieg, on the powerplay, 11:30 seconds into the period after DavidKolomatis smacked a rebound behind the Growlers goalie to give the Monarchs a 1-0 lead.

It took Zach O'Brien 3 minutes and 3 seconds to respond for the Growlers, making good on a partial breakaway to deke the puck into the cage behind Williams to tie the game at 1.

While the Growlers outshot the Monarchs 16-6 in the third period, nothing else would get past the Monarchs goalie as the game shifted to overtime where Pierre-Luc Mercier deflected the puck into the Growlers net, just 2:16 into the extra frame to force the series back to Mile One Centre for game six Monday night.
