The Port Hope Panthers ended their November schedule with a disappointing loss on Monday night against a hard working Campbellford Rebels team. The Panthers took a lead with 3 seconds remaining in the second period when Evan Wright tapped a rebound home. The goal was fourth of the season for Wright, and was the result of a hard forecheck by the speedy winger.
The Panthers fell into penalty trouble in the third, eventually giving up a goal to Cobourg local Connor Macgregor that evened the score four minutes into the period. With neither team being able to find the back of the net the rest of the period, the game was pushed to overtime. Campbellford forward Adam Klaas ended it for the visiting team with a goal at the 3:37 mark of the final frame, earning the Rebels the extra point.
The loss on Monday night ended the Panthers November schedule, and was the only blemish on Port Hope’s record for the entire month, earning them a record of 5-0-1-1.
The Panthers have an exciting month ahead, with 6 games and various community initiatives and events to look forward to. Details will be released in the coming days.
The Panthers look to get back on track on Saturday, as the second place Amhertsview Jets are in town. Puck drop at the Jack Burger is set for 7:30 pm.
