Big Samoan comeback ends with OT loss, 8-7.

It was a high scoring game here in week one, where leads were lost, and hearts were broken.

Trailing 6-2 after two, someone close to the team predicted a comeback, AND a George Anderson assists.

All of that came true, but despite the comeback, the Samoans would give it away in OT.

It was 3-0 navy after one period, and it looked like gold was all done. Navy took a 6-2 lead into the final period, and there was no way gold could score four, right ?

Well, Jim Wilkinson had something to say about that. Gold would score 5 of the next 6, the last one coming with a minute left to tie it at 7-7.

The game went to OT, where Flanagan went coast to coast to save the game for navy with an 8-7 OT win.

"Usually 7 goals is good enough for a win, even with Fuji in net," said Wilkinson. "But we'll take the point.."
