Wild Flurry of Goals snaps 3-3 tie late

It was a wild finish Sunday afternoon at the Dan K. Stevens Memorial Arena in Eskasoni.  The hometown Jr. Eagles and Liverpool Privateers were locked in a 3-3 draw with only 3:05 left in regulation time when Daniel Kline put the Privateers ahead 4-3.  It took another goal 59 seconds later from Kayden Nickerson, his second of the afternoon which proved to be the game winner.  The Jr. Eagles Thomas Simon then scored his second of the afternoon 18 seconds later to make the game a one-goal affair at 5-4 but the Jr. Eagles were unable to tie the game as Kline with his second of the afternoon and 5th goal of the weekend put one into an empty net to give Liverpool a 6-4 win.  Kline besides his 2 goals also added an assist giving him 7 points in two games during the Privateers road trip into Cape Breton.  Alec Howie also scored once and added a pair of assists while Matt Ormon scored once for the Privateers.

Thomas Simon besides his two goals also added an assist and Matt Ormon of the Privateers collected a pair of assists.  Liverpool outshot Eskasoni 41-34.  Both teams are now off until this Friday, Oct 8 when the Privateers visit the Capstone Colts at CFB Shearwater and the Jr. Eagles play their first of two games against the re-launched Cumberland County Blues.
