Another OT win leaves Jr. B Wolves a win away from second round

Rylan Ball the hero in overtime for Westshore squad

Thanks to a 4-3 overtime win at The Q Centre on Wednesday night, the Westshore Wolves have the Saanich Braves on the ropes in Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League playoff action.

Rylan Ball scored the winner from Quentin McShane at 1:52 of the first overtime period. His goal came shortly after teammate Tyler Smith tied the game at three with just 48 seconds to go in regulation time.

It was the third time this week that the teams have needed overtime to determine a winner. Westshore has won the two games in Colwood, while the Braves won at Pearkes Arena on Monday.

Spencer Preece opened scoring for the Wolves in the second period last night, but goals by Saanich’s Evan Horvath and Jack Rachwalski gave the visitors the lead by the second intermission.

Clay Carson made it a 2-2 game 1:24 into the third, but Seamus Maguire restored Saanich lead less than two minutes later. Carson later set up Smith for the 3-3 goal.

The Wolves can wrap up the best-of-seven series with a win in Game 6 tomorrow night back in Saanich. Game time is 6:30 p.m.
