Ross Krieger recorded the overtime winner to complete North York Rangers 3-2 come back victory over the Mississauga Chargers on Sunday afternoon (Oct. 28) in the Hebert H. Carnegie Centre.
The Chargers are the only team that have beaten the Rangers in regulation this and they got off to a quick start on the first shot of the game. Less than a minute in Kyle Lewis’ backhander hand cuffed Rangers goalie Jett Alexander.
North York wasn’t able to respond until around the midway point of the second period. Aidan Casey took Austin Brimmer’s pass and immediately went top corner to even up the score. Mississauga’s captain Brandon Yeamans took upon himself to respond for his team. He made a quick move around AP call up Jacob Im to create a partial breakaway and beat Alexander short side.
The Ranger weren’t able to beat 16-year-old Matthew Sbrocca until the final two minutes of the third. With the extra attacker on the ice, Joey Maziarz point shot somehow got through everyone to find the back of the net. The team’s need overtime to decide a winner.
Only 65 seconds into the extra frame, Krieger tipped in Ryan Radisa point shot for the game winner.
North York extended their winning streak to 11 games with the victory. The team continue their three game home stand against the Stouffville Spirit on Friday November 2nd. Puck drop is set for 8:00 p.m.
