15-12 end for Friday game

It came down to an overtime period to decide the winner of Friday (July 1) night’s OJALL game between the Orangeville Northmen and the Six Nations Arrows.

The Northmen jumped out to an early lead in the first period outscoring the Arrows 4-2 including a pair of goals from Adam Charalambides.

Charalambides got his third of the game early in the second period to give the Northmen a 5-2 lead.

Six Nations fought back scoring four in a row – two of the goals on powerplays – to make it a 5-5 tie game at mid period.

O-ville finished off the frame with three goals from Andy Campbell, Lucas Ducharme, and a shorthanded effort from Matt Gilroy.

The third period was a battle for control of the game when the visitors scored three to take a one goal lead.

Orangeville’s Scott DelZotto and Lucas Decharme both scored to again tie it up with just over half a period remaining.

The last half of the period saw the Arrows score three to Orangeville’s two goals and the third period ended in a 12-12 tie to force the game into overtime to decide the winner.

The game ended with a 15-12 loss for the Northmen when they failed to score in the OT period.
