CAMPBELLFORD, ON – Sunday was the second of back to back games in the quarter final series between the Panthers and Rebels. Coming off a 7-1 victory at home the night before, Port Hope was looking to continue their scoring ways into Sunday’s game.

Despite outshooting the Rebels 28 – 6 in the first period, the game remained scoreless and Port Hope was unable to capitalize on their lone powerplay.

Panthers continued to press in the second and were eventually able to break the unbelievable play by Rebels goaltender Logan Carter thanks to a Dailen Fousek shot, his first of the post-season, just prior to the 10-minute mark of the period. Captain Isaac Langdon had an assist on the play. His first point in what would be a 5 point game for #25.

The score remained 1-0 after 40-minutes, with the Panthers once again outshooting the Rebels by a lopsided tally of 23-6.

It didn’t take long for Port Hope to get a little bit of breathing room once the puck dropped on the third period as they finally found a way to get the puck behind Rebels netminder in what would be a dominant performance.

0:29 seconds into the frame, Langdon took a shot from the high slot to begin the teams shift in shot results and notch his first of the game, on the powerplay. Tyler McGarvey and Nate Burelle assisted on the play. Langdon would strike again less than two minutes later when he beat the defence to the outside and found the back of the net through the five hole. Burelle with the lone assist.

Three minutes later it was Burelle’s turn to get in the goal column off a cross crease pass from Langdon. Fousek also with an assist. Burelle’s second goal came 10-minutes later with assists going to Langdon and Hunter Wright.

Andrew Roberts would get his first of the post-season from Braxton Mullins and Spencer Eriksson before the Rebels found the back of the net thanks to another Eriksson, Andrew, as he buried a lose puck in front.

Panthers final goal, seventh of the game and sixth of the period, came off the stick of Carter Chadwick as it was deflected in off a Rebels defenders skate. Josh Sainthill was credited with the assist.

Final shots for the night, Panthers 74, Rebels 21.

Game four goes Thursday night, back in Campbellford, where the Panthers will look to close out the series.
