Team captain Tyler Young tied the game up for the Leafs, before Falmouth native Bailey Peach, an affiliated player with a Cole Harbour AAA midget team, scored what would be the game-winning goal.
“In this game, Clokie kept us in it. We tightened up defensively and we found a way to win,” said Brett Fletcher, an assistant coach with the Leafs, following the game.
“Clokie stood on his head; he kept his composure, which is key. The young call-up from midget, Griffin Abbot, he played really well, held his own on defense, played very steady.”
Fletcher said this is a playoff series where either team could come out on top.
“It's kind of what happened last year. We were down two games in this (same) series against Sackville,” said Fletcher.
Affiliated player Bailey Peach, No. 9, of Falmouth, is congratulated by his teammates Sean Anderson and Brody McCarron on scoring the Leafs' second goal of the evening.
