Mangos leads Dundas past league leaders
DUNDAS—Dundas Real McCoys with a total team effort snapped a nine-game winless streak as they edged the first place Stoney Creek Generals 4-3 in overtime, in Allan Cup Hockey action tonight in the JL Grightmire Arena. Tonight was “Pink in the Rink” night as the McCoys, and Com/Choice Realty played in support of Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre Foundation with a portion of all tickets going to support the CIBC Breast Assessment Centre. Prior to the contest, the McCoys paid tribute to the 2014-15 Dundas Blues Peewee Rep team which was honoured with the Ontario Minor Hockey Association’s Home Town Excellence Award.
Dundas rallied from a 2-0 deficit to tie the Generals, and then grabbed a 3-2 lead before Stoney Creek’s Jordan Morrison tied the score with a one-timer past goalkeeper Neil Clelland with eight minutes to go in the third period. In overtime, both teams had their chances, but the McCoys were the opportunists. With 40 second gone in the extra frame, Ryan O’Mara lost the puck in front of the McCoys net with Clelland at his mercy. Dundas grabbed the puck, raced down the ice, and defenceman Simon Mangos fired a wrist shot past Generals goalie Daniel Svedin at 55 seconds of overtime.
For Mangos, the goal capped a three-point night, while Chris Hulit added a goal and an assist. Jordan Foreman and Matthew Bragg added single goals. Jarrett Konkle, Nathan Pageau (on a penalty shot), and Morrison replied for the Generals.
