Lakeshore takes 3-2 series lead

It looked as though the home team was destined to lose another game in front of their fans. Essex took a 2-0 lead early in the second period on goals by Mike Smith and Jacob Cruickshank. "It's a crazy series. You don't see that everyday." said Lakeshore head coach Anthony Iaquinta.

The Canadiens broke through at 9:22 of the middle frame as Marco Sladoje took a favourable bounce in the neutral zone, broke free from a defender to create a breakaway. The 18-year old beat Essex netminder Jakob Knowles glove side cutting the lead in half.

Less than nine minutes later Adam Pizzo pounced on a dump in and centered a pass to Kyle Walker who tied the game at two.

Trevor Larue scored on the powerplay at 8:55 of the third to give Lakeshore the lead. With time running out Tycen Chittle sprung Karson Beuglet down low. His one-timer was picked off by Habs' goalie Trevor Heslop with 2.1 seconds left on the clock to preserve the win.
