KIJHL: Leafs fall in double overtime

Golden Rockets score four in a row to come back and win 4-3.

The Nelson Leafs let a big lead slip through their fingers, dropping a 4-3 overtime decision to the Golden Rockets on Friday night.

The match was the first of a three-game road trip for the Nelson squad.

After a scoreless first period, Nelson’s Rayce Miller opened the scoring to give the visiting Leafs the lead. Robson Cramer also scored in the second to give Nelson a 2-0 cushion entering the final frame.

The game looked to be well in hand when Aaron Dunlap scored to make it 3-0 but golden battled back.

James Gaume, Cole Mckechney and Matthew Krusky scored to tie the game at three.

It took two, five-minute overtime sessions before Nic Noseworthy scored to win it for the Rockets.

Joey Karrer stopped 37 of 41 shots in the loss while Golden goalie Mark Becica earned the win, stopping 32 of 35 shots.

The Leafs play again on Saturday night, this time in Kimberley.
