Clue gets meaningless OT win, 6-5.
Mike Uretsky did all the work, but
Richard Breed got credit for the OT goal. Here we go.
After scoring on his own goal early and finishing regulation minus 5
Richard Breed was the hero as he scored in OT to give the Blue Clue
a come from behind victory over Red Candyland. Richard started the
scoring by knocking one into his own net to put Red up 1-0 on the
first shift of the game.
A second goal by Steve Iannetti and a third by JA on a sweet pass
from Blue's Joe Surette had Red up 3-0 before Murph came out of the
Blue got two back by Todd Nichols and Dan McCarthy to make it a game
at 3-2 at the end of the first period.
Red kept the two goal lead after two periods with goals from Lloyd
and another by JA which went in off of Fuji's foot, sandwiched
around one from Brian Leslie to make it 5-3 after two. The score
would have been a lot closer if Jimmy D had converted on any of his
numerous breakaways. Story of his life.
In the third Red's George Anderson pulled a "Surette" by setting up
Blue's Andy Long who scored to make it a one goal game at 5-4.
With about a minute left Coach Rick Breed showed his veteran
knowledge by calling a timeout and writing up a play he learned in
school while skating with Eddie Shore.
"Get the puck deep, we pull the goalie, set up the point man for a
shot and we need a double tip to tie the game."
Just like he drew it up, Brian Leslie shot from the right point,
Todd Nichols in the slot tipped it over to Joe Surette at the corner
of the net who wanted to give it to JA again, but knocked it in to
tie the game.
That set up the OT situation for Breed the younger to give Clue the
win, and two points to finish (barely) over .500.
