67’s bat away Battalion in OT
The 67’s came out on the winning end of a back-and-forth affair in North Bay on Thursday night, downing the Battalion 4-3 in overtime.
The two teams traded goals all night long, with the 67’s taking the lead early only to have the Battalion tie things up three times throughout the game. But it was Ottawa who scored the final goal of the contest, with Mathieu Foget scoring his second of the game just 25 seconds into overtime.
The 67’s got the early lead when Foget scored his first of the night and third of the year before the game was seven minutes old. It wouldn’t last long though as Daniel Walker scored for North Bay just 12 seconds later to even things up.
The game would stay tied until the second period when Kody Clark gave Ottawa the lead back at the 12:58 mark. Once again, the Battalion pulled even as Brandon Coe notched his first of the year with three minutes to go in the middle frame. The teams would trade goals once more in regulation as Graeme Clarke scored for Ottawa before Justin Brazeau’s goal for North Bay forced overtime.
Olivier Tremblay got the win in goal for Ottawa, turning away 27 of 30 shots.
