Huskies Pass Comets in Race for Second

Chris Clegg Writer

Josh Peters’ fourth goal of the night with 31 seconds left in the third period lifted the visiting Grimshaw Huskies to a thrilling 5-4 win over the Falher Pirates Saturday night.
The win puts GRIM in second place in the East Division, one point ahead of the Manning Comets and sets up a showdown between the clubs in GRIM Friday, Feb. 1. A win by either club clinches second place and home ice advantage in their upcoming playoff series. MAN does not need to win, however. A loss in overtime or a shootout and they can still clinch second with a win in High Prairie Feb. 2. GRIM is idle that night.

Peters scored in the first period, Brian Sommers in the second and the clubs were tied 1-1 heading into the third.
Peters gave GRIM a 2-1 lead before Darren Kramer tied the game. Jeff Chalifoux then gave FAL a 3-2 lead. The battle continued when Kyle Richardson tied the game, then Sommers gave FAL a 4-3 lead with 5:16 left. Peters’ third of the night, on a power play, tied the game with 2:35 left before he added the game-winner in the waning seconds. Lowen Lambert and Ty Wiebe each drew assists on the game-tieing and game-winning goals.
