Weekend Full of Overtime

Three games go to OT for junior programs

After a stellar start to the season at home, the Revolution EHL Premier Jr. A team was poised to get back on the ice and keep riding the momentum from their victories a week prior over the Nighthawks. Unfortunately, it did not start out that way.  

It was a back and forth tilt for the first two periods, but it remained scoreless due to great performances by Cyclones goaltender David Altman and Revolution goalie Nick Donofrio, who had 19 saves at that point. The Revolution would strike first with a goal from Guy Roby, but the with an extra attacker on the ice, the Cyclones would come back with a last-minute goal to send the game to overtime. In the extra frame, the Cyclones end it, and the Revolution fall 2-1.

The Revolution took the ice the next morning and bounced back with an overtime win of their own, this time over the Philadelphia Little Flyers. Between both teams, there was a total of 28 penalty minutes. The Revolution were able to take advantage of these mistakes, scoring both of their regulation goals on the power play; the first coming off the stick of Sean Condra, and another tally from Matthew Doran. The Little Flyers were able to break through getting two goals of their own which would send this game to overtime. A goal from Bryce Witman would seal the victory for the Revolution 3-2, getting that bad taste out of their mouth from the night before.

The Revolution U19 Elite team also had a strong opening weekend and were ready to continue the great play after their two blowout wins. The game did not start out very well, as their opponent the Philadelphia Jr. Flyers would put up three goals in the first period. With their backs against the wall, the Revolution would respond with three of their own in the second period from Josh Sklar, Alex Pelletier and Blake Hallman. The high-scoring affair would calm down in a scoreless third period, leading to another game that needs overtime. The Jr. Flyers put in their first goal since the opening period and beat the Revolution 4-3. 

The last game of the weekend for the U19 Elites would be a different story. Playing away against the Jr. Flyers this time, the Revolution come out as victors 5-1 with goals from Davin Van de Zilver, Luke Aquaro, Josh Sklar, Cameron Tobey and PJ Breslow. Goaltender Trevor Babin was perfect through 37 minutes of play, stopping all 23 pucks that came his way. His partner Chad Simmerman came in after that and made 10 saves on 11 shots.
