MV Colts Closing In On First Ever HJHL Championship
As heard on Tuesday, March 22nd on 96.5 CKFM a shorthanded goal by Ryan Klink jumpstarted a four goal outburst in the second period for the Mountain View Colts.
That helped them rally from a 3-1 deficit to claim a 5-4 road victory in Cochrane.
Mountain View now leads the best of seven HJHL Championship Series three games to two.
After the Colts fell behind by two goals, Head Coach Gord Olsen called a timeout and forward Tyson Schmidt explains how that helped them start the comeback.
Schmidt had a pair of assists in the Game 5 victory. Evan Ingram's shorthanded goal accounted for all of the scoring in the first period. Keaton Perigny and Austin Pedersen netted even strength markers. Colton Anderon's second period power play goal stood up as the game winner.
