The Uxbridge Bruins needed nearly every second of their match-up against the North Kawartha Knights on Saturday, Nov. 8 to come away with a win, as Daryl Thomson scored with just 15 seconds remaining to give the Bruins a 2-1 come-from-behind victory in Apsley.
The Bruins would fall behind 1-0 through the first period. But, Marco Mastrangelo would tie the game, with an assist credited to Korey Brand, almost eight minutes into the second period.
The teams would trade chances in the third period, and the game appeared headed for extra time before Thomson converted a pass from Connor Evans into the winning goal. Uxbridge product Jake Joosten earned his third victory of the season in goal for the Bruins.
The win on Saturday night came on the heels of a 3-1 loss at home against the Lakefield Chiefs on Friday, Nov. 7.
Mastrangelo had the Bruins’ lone goal, assisted by Evans and Jarett Smith.
