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

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.
