WESTVILLE ROAD - The Junior A Crushers rallied late and salvaged a point in a 4-3 overtime loss on Friday to the Yarmouth Mariners.
The game had a see-saw ending; with the teams tied at 2-2, Yarmouth’s Derrick Johnson scored at 18:50 of the third period to give his team a lead.
But a mere 24 seconds later, Crushers captain Michael Dill scored to force overtime, where Logan Timmons ended it in the Mariners’ favour in the three-on-three extra session.
Nick Jessome and Jaden Mason had the other Crusher goals, Matt Smith and Brent Broaders countered for Yarmouth.
The Crushers, who went 2-1-1 in their final four games prior to the holiday break, are tied with the Valley Wildcats for fifth place in the South Division, although Pictou County has a game in hand.
