OHSWEKEN – The Southern Counties’ Six Nations Novice C’s mounded a third period comeback to tie Tavistock 3-3 at the Gaylord Powless Arena Sunday afternoon.
Tavistock scored first with Carter Stillings beating Tristan Garlow in the Six Nations net, but Averee Sault evened the score from Mace Anthony and Crosby Anderson to finish the first period tied at 1-1.
Tavistock pulled ahead 3-1 in the second with Skilling’s second of the game and Alex Michiels. Jake Hauss added another in the third to make it 4-1 with 10 minutes left to play.
Six Nations’ Trinity MacDonald began the comeback with the 4-2 goal from Sault with 6:20 remaining. But Six Nations did not throw in the towel and instead, turned it up a notch pressuring Tavistock in their own end until Sault made it a one-goal game with a high shot that found its target, assisted by Ryker Martin with 1:10 left on the clock.
That goal put Tavistock on its heels as Six Nations poured it on pulling the goalie for an extra man. The move worked as Crosby Anderson scored a highlight reel goal from Chaz Hill and Sault to tie the game at 4-4 with 11 seconds left, to steal a point from Tavistock with a never-say-die last minute effort by Coach Dennis MacDonald’s Six Nations Novices in an exciting Minor Hockey matchup.
