PLATTSBURGH — Hunter Provost scored the tie-breaker at 1:12 into the overtime period of a Champlain Valley Athletic Conference hockey game, Thursday, pushing Saranac past Plattsburgh High, 3-2.
The Chiefs scored first, from Landen Duprey at the 2:41 mark, assisted by Ryan Maggy. Then, the Hornets answered at 15:40 when Hayden Colburn scored off an assist from Jace Lacey.
In the second, Plattsburgh added to their lead, with Bostyn Duquette scoring with help from Evan Kay at the 9:54 mark. But, in the third, Saranac tied it up once again, with Evan Patrie scoring on a power play, assisted by Ethan Barnes and Ashtyn Catlin.
“It wasn’t pretty, but we found a way to win tonight,” Saranac coach Robby Knowles said. “We had a solid third period where we played smart and had good effort.”
“Plattsburgh did a good job taking care of sticks in front of their net and not allowing us to get many second chances. They have a couple of defensemen who can join the rush and that put us back on our heels at times.”
