SCUGOG: The Port Perry MoJacks closed out the month of November with a win and an overtime loss.
On Saturday, November 27th, the MoJacks faced off with the North Kawartha Knights in Apsley.
Through all three regulation periods of that game, there were no goals scored by either team. So the game was decided in overtime. Four minutes into the overtime frame, the Knights found the game winning goal, sending Port Perry home with a 1-0 loss.
However, a solid MoJacks effort paid off in their next game, against the Clarington Eagles at Scugog Arena, on Sunday, November 28th. Despite leading in shots in the first period 14 to 9, the MoJacks would surrender the only goal of the first period. 16 minutes in, the Eagles put the puck past goaltender Gavin Bradt, and Port Perry went into the intermission trailing 1-0.
But, seven and a half minutes into the second period, Justin Jacobs rifled a wrist shot past the Eagles’ goaltender, tying the game at 1-1. Almost six and a half minutes into the third period, Jacobs scored his second goal of the game, giving Port Perry the advantage 2-1. A minute and a half later, Cameron Marshall extended the lead to 3-1 with a goal. Brayden Roberts added an empty net goal later in the period, and Port Perry won the game 4-1.
