Okanagan Hockey Academy 3 - Pursuit of Excellence Hockey Academy 4
SAHARCHUK GETS WINNER, POE EARNS FIFTH PLACE
CALGARY, Alta. – Matt Saharchuk scored the game-winning goal with 8:11 remaining, breaking open a 3-3 tie and helping Pursuit of Excellence claim fifth place at the 2011 World Sport School Challenge with a 4-3 victory over Okanagan Hockey Academy on Friday night.
Dylan Bowen scored twice and Josh Bowes added three assists for POE, which won bragging rights in an all-B.C. match-up.
Pursuit of Excellence came out flying in the opening 20 minutes, outshooting OHA 12-3 and taking a 2-0 lead on goals 2:16 apart – Spencer Hewson redirected a shot from the point to open the scoring before Bowen wired a slap shot top corner to double the lead.
Bowen made it a 3-0 game just 2:10 into the second period before OHA woke up and dominated the remainder of the middle frame, outshooting POE 16-4 and pulling even on goals from Riley Stadel, Dylan Gamble and Sebastian Barrette.
The third period was a defensive struggle, with scoring chances few and far between until Saharchuk pounced on a loose puck in the slot and snapped a shot past Chris Skeates to provide the final margin of victory.
