Boisbriand, QUE. – New Brunswick took home the bronze medal of the Gatorade Excellence Challenge following a 5-4 shoot out win against Prince Edward Island on Sunday.
Milson Brendan scored early in the first to give New Brunswick the lead, but Keiran Gallant tied the game a minute later. While on the power play, Noah Griffin gave Prince Edward Island the lead when he found the back of the net for his first of the tournament.
Charlie DesRoches put one past Ethan Pearson while on the power play at 3:06 of the second frame to make it a two-goal game. However, Alexis Dube cancelled it out with an unassisted goal near the end of the period.
In the third, New Brunswick tied the game courtesy of Dawson Stairs who found the twine following a perfect pass from Josh Lawrence. However, two back-to-back penalties put Prince Edward Island up two men on the power play and Ed McNeill took advantage of it to score his first of the tournament as well as give his team the lead once again. In desperate need of a goal, New Brunswick pulled their goaltender to get the extra attacker on the ice and it paid off as Connor Richard sent the game to overtime with a perfectly placed shot.
Five skaters for both teams tried their hand in the shoot-out, but it wasn’t until the last attempt from New Brunswick that a shot hit its target.
Matt Jelley made 33 saves in Sunday’s shoot out loss, whereas his counterparts, Ethan Pearson, made 13 saves and Matthias Savoie made 12.
For New Brunswick, the player of the game was Dube, whose goal got the momentum going for his team’s comeback.
On New Brunswick’s side, Richard was named player of the tournament, accumulating four points consisting of two goals and two assists, including the goal to tie the game in the bronze medal match.
