Juicy Fruit chokes in 7-6 OT loss.

The Gold Juicy Fruit team had this game in the wrapper, until they allowed five 3rd period goals, and then lost in OT.

The undefeated Juicy Fruit team was guilty of reading their own press, and could not hold a late lead.

Kellogg had a pair of goals to put the gold team up 2-0, then Thompson scored on a breakaway for a 3-0 lead in the 2nd. Phatt Deskin scored for red, but at the time it looked like they would just break the shutout.

In the third though, it was an old west shootout, with 8 goals being scored, 5 coming from the Big Red team, including two in the final 1:04 to force bonus time.

Then in OT, Big Red completed the comeback when Chewie scored his 4th of the game and that was that.

"Technically we haven't lost in regulation, so as far as I'm concerned, we're still undefeated," said John Gambale.

Mike Cormican, who had very little to do with the comeback, said, "You can never count us out, especially when we put Jimmy D. on the bench."

Bill Osbahr made his return to the BBHC, and his team promptly took 3 penalties, the first by him.

"I don't remember the refs calling this many penalties," said Osbahr.
