Milton 6, Plattsburgh 5
This was definitely a team victory. Despite the rain and poor field conditions, the Yellowjackets pulled out a 6-5 comeback victory with Cole Heisler netting the game winner with :20 to play.
Although Milton started the game off sluggish, the team found its stride behind Chris Lefebvre’s superb goaltending (14 saves). Lefebvre saved his best play for last with many doorstep stops to keep the game close. Owen Perry and Dylan Forkey each had two goals and Jackson Ehler had one of the most important goals of his young career as he tied the game with just over two minutes to play. With an aggressive Gomo, McQuinn and Andrew Karlin playing smart defense and forcing a late turnover, our offense was able to capitalize with an excellent feed from Tim Boucher to Heisler.
MHS is happy to end the losing streak, but they were right back to work as they prepared for Spaulding on Friday, April 27 at home.
