LOVISEK SCORES OT WINNER; GRADS DEFEAT PEMBROKE 6-5

PEMBROKE, ON – Veteran forward Alec Lovisek scored a power-play goal at 2:14 of overtime to propel the Navan Grads to a 6-5 win over the Pembroke Lumber Kings on Friday night at Pembroke Memorial Centre.

Check out the highlights:

The Navan Grads opened the scoring early in the first period, when Ryan Burke fired a loose puck into the open cage to give the Grads a 1-0 lead.  Pembroke responded at 7:34 of period on the power-play on a goal by forward Gabe Malek and took a 2-1 lead at 16:22 on a goal by Brady Egan.  The Navan Grads power-play went to work in the final moments of the opening frame when Danyk Drouin deflected a point shot from Alexandre Hogue to tie the game 2-2. Alec Lovisek had the other helper.

Both goaltenders made several big saves in the second period but it was Pembroke that would take the 3-2 lead on a goal by Max Martin at 18:15.  The Grads evened the score at 3-3 at 19:25 of the 2nd period on goal by forward Devyn Orpana; linemates Nolan Forster and Ryan Burke had the assists.

In the third period, Owen Parsons gave the Grads a 4-3 lead; Drouin and Cayden Faust had the assists. The Lumber Kings would tie the game at 4-4 on a goal by Brady Egan and take the lead a few minutes later on a goal by Jack Stockfish.  The Grads refused to give up and tied the game at 5-5 when veteran defender Alexandre Hogue toe dragged a Pembroke defender and beat goaltender Reece Proulx.

In overtime, the Grads wasted little time on the power-play as Alexandre Hogue found Alec Lovisek for the one-timer and the Navan Grads celebrated the 6-5 win on the road.

The Navan Grads are back in action on Sunday afternoon at Navan Memorial Centre when they host the Brockville Braves at 3:30PM for a Halloween matinee. Kids will receive free admission on Sunday if they wear a costume or minor hockey jersey to the game.
