Play­ing on home ice in the sec­ond over­time pe­riod of the cham­pi­onship game, the Pla­cen­tia Lions found a way to pull through and win.

Brady Judge scored just over one minute into the sec­ond pe­riod of over­time to give the Lions a 6-5 vic­tory over the Mount Pearl Blades, giv­ing his team the Hockey New­found­land and Labrador Ban­tam E Pro­vin­cial Tour­na­ment win. Owen Edi­son and Blake O’Keefe as­sisted on the dra­matic game win­ner at Unity Parc Arena.

The vic­tory capped off a great three days of hockey for the ban­tam Lions, who went un­de­feated in five games. The team opened the tour­na­ment Thurs­day, April 5, with a 14-3 thrash­ing of the Clarenville Cari­bous, be­fore end­ing the day with a 7-7 tie against the Bon­av­ista Cabots.

On Fri­day, the Lions de­feated the Blades 9-3 and shutout the Bay Arena Rovers from Bay Roberts 5-0. That was the team’s last game prior to Satur­day’s cham­pi­onship face off against the Blades.

The Rovers had a 1-3 win-loss record in the six-team tour­na­ment, win­ning their fi­nal game Satur­day against the Cari­bous by a score of 4-2.
