Pirates’ offensive firepower saves the day

Picton Pirates defenceman Brandon Peever accepts a cheque on behalf of the hockey club from Douglas Pitt and Gary Haig of the Royal Canadian Leagion Branch 78. The legion will once again sponsor a sweater of the local Jr. C team.

The Picton Pirates almost let one go Thursday night, but managed to regain their composure before downing the Cambellford Rebels 7-6 in a shootout.
Up 6-4 with under three minutes to play, the Pirates were victimized by some laissez-faire play in their own defensive zone as the Rebels managed to score two late to tie the preseason affair.
In overtime, Picton held the majority of chances with several Pirates coming close to ending the game.
Ultimately, it was Dylan Mountaney that sent the Picton fans home happy as he made a nice move on Rebels goalie Ben Elliot to give the Pirates the win, their fifth of the preseason.
“It was tough to watch our team gag on that lead, but luckily, our offensive firepower saved the day,” Pirates GM Jason Parks said.
Picton scored seven goals for third time in four games.
Aside from the shootout winner, Mountaney had a pair in regulation while Evan Greer, Dylan Leduc, Mitch Burkitt, and Josh Fagan also scored.
Assists went to Tyler Kearns (2), Burkitt, Greer, Fagan, Pat Millington, Ryan Sizer and Eric Hayes.
Picton will take on the Rebels in their final preseason game on Saturday night at RCAF arena in Trenton.
The Pirates will have a bust Saturday as members of the team will be at the Milford fair, participating in the dunk tank from 1-3 PM.
