Last minute heroics earns Carmeuse Lime juvenile rep Express the win

The Carmeuse Lime juvenile rep Express found themselves in a two-goal deficit to the visiting Tavistock Titans as the final minute of the first period counted down Oct. 28 at the Ingersoll District Memorial Arena.

That deficit was cut in half at 00:01, when Tanner Shnickel, unassisted, put the puck past the Tavistock netminder.

After allowing the Titans two successful powerplay opportunities in the first period, Ingersoll began to settle into a more disciplined style of play. Each team would take only one penalty. The Express would once again save the best until last as Tyler Goyette, assisted by Colin Wellar-Burgess, scored the only goal of the period at 39.8.

Each team had won a period and the score showed 2-2, as they returned to the ice for the third period. The final 15 minutes were filled with pure hockey; there were no penalties. Ingersoll’s netminder Ryan Calder, who hadn’t allowed a goal since 7:26 of the first period, remained sharp in net as his team worked to create offensive opportunities. Ingersoll’s efforts were rewarded at 42.4, when Max Shelton, with some support from Mitch Graham scored the final goal of the night, claiming the first regular season win for Carmeuse Lime juvenile rep.
