Cheers from the sidelines erupted Sunday evening at the Fort Coulonge arena, as the Pontiac Senior Comets’ Adrian Moyes ended a tense overtime period with less than 30 seconds left on the clock.
It was a game filled with back and forth action, some fisticuffs and plenty of penalties, but the Comets narrowly overcame the Maniwaki Forestiers at the home team’s second exhibition game.
While first period saw the Comets hit their stride from the get-go, leading 2-1 for the majority of the game, the third period proved a rougher go. Minutes in, the Forestiers outpaced the Comets, taking a two-point lead.
The Comets’ Joshua Snider, assisted by Matt Sarazin, proved the team’s redeemer, scoring 15 minutes into the third. Two minutes later, Stephane Paré fired in another, leveling the playing field, with an assist from Francis Desforges.
