Stony Plain Eagles win in OT, tie Senior AAA Provincial series at 1

STONY PLAIN– The Stony Plain Eagles showed some resiliency in Game 2 of the Senior AAA Provincial final.

Trailing the Lacombe Generals 3-1 early in the third period, the Eagles notched two power-play goals late to tie the game in regulation.

Richard Kelly scored at 6:11 of overtime to earn the 4-3 win for the Eagles and tie the best-of-seven series at one game apiece.

The Generals jumped ahead in the first with a goal from Kyle Bailey, before Dylan Nowakowski made it 2-0 early in the second.

Lucas Isley cut the deficit for Stony Plain but Nathan Deck pushed the Generals ahead with a power-play marker in the third.

The two power-play goals for the Eagles in the third were scored just 47 seconds apart.

Tyler Bunz was solid in net for the Eagles and made 36 saves to pick up the win. Steven Stanford stopped 23 shots in the loss.
