Brett Foy scores in overtime as Steelheads win 4-3 over Brampton Battalion

BRAMPTON, Ont. - Brett Foy scored his second goal of the game in overtime as the Mississauga Steelheads rallied for 4-3 win over the Brampton Battalion in Ontario Hockey League action Monday.

The Steelheads opened the scoring on the power play at 16:59 of the first period when Dylan Smoskowitz pounced on a loose puck and beat Matej Machovsky with a quick shot.

The Battalion took over in the second, starting with a beautiful effort from Nicolas Foglia. The centre skated in from the neutral zone, cut around defenceman Trevor Carrick and fired a wrist shot past Spencer Martin.

Brampton took the lead less than five minutes later as Barclay Goodrow fed Brenden Miller, whose shot from the point was redirected past Martin.

Goodrow made it 3-1 two minute later with a perfect snapshot from the face-off circle.

Mississauga curbed the deficit to one near the midway point of the third period as Foy redirected a low point shot from Eric Diodati.

Mississauga tied it shorthanded with just 31 seconds remaining in regulation as Riley Brace snuck a low shot through Machovsky’s legs.

Foy's shot from the hash marks at 2:51 of OT was his second goal of the season.

“It’s great to get the win and get the monkey off my back as far as scoring goes,” said Foy. “This team is able to overcome deficits and we did just that today.”

Martin made 31 saves for Mississauga (3-3-1), while Machovsky stopped 21 of the 25 shots that he faced for Brampton (2-3-2).

Quote of the Day

It was a different game in the past, that's for sure. It's not exactly what I was expecting but I think the experience paid off for a lot of our guys that realized what it takes in a Game 7. Realistically the effort we put forward, we might not even had to put 60 [minutes], but we just couldn't get a couple bounces to go our way and we just kept pushing.
