In a game "Coach" George Demaio likes to call The Brunch Special, it was East Haven Co-op visiting West Haven in an early afternoon thriller at the Edward L. Bennett Rink. The game was scoreless after the first 2 periods with East Haven's goalie Matt Twarowski and West Haven's Logan Cole leaving everything out on the ice.
Early in the 3rd period The Co-op's Dave Amatruda managed to break through and score the game's first goal. Halfway through the 3rd, it was the Westies' EJ Pacapelli racing out of the penalty box and right to the far post where the puck would find him, and he found the back of the net for the game tying goal!
Regulation time would expire resulting in the first overtime game of the season setting up another thriller at "The Bennett".
It wouldn't take long as East Haven Captain Zach Paquin would take a breakaway pass from Alec Spears and go top shelf for the 2-1 overtime game winner!
The win is the 4th in a row for East Haven improving them to 4-2-1 and the loss drops West Haven to 2-6 on the season.
