There was a 10-minute sudden death overtime played following this game. This was determined by the league to finish game one of last week, which ended in a 9-9 tie….Both goalies made some huge saves early in the OT period, but Marsahll Powless of the Arrows, with an outside screenshot, put the winner in to split the season series with Burlington 1-1.
As predicted, this came down to the final games to see who would make the playoffs.
Congratulations to Whitby, Mimico, St. Catharines, and Brampton for persevering through this whirlwind season of 44 games played in just two weeks (eight games each).
