OHL Roundup: Foy scores in OT as Steelheads win 4-3 over Brampton Battalion

A rare multi-goal game from Brett Foy capped a stunning comeback by the Mississauga Steelheads.

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

Trailing 3-1 in the third period, Foy scored to cut the deficit to one goal. Riley Brace then scored short-handed with 31 seconds remaining to send the game to overtime.

The goals were Foy's first two of the season, and marked just the second time he has scored more than one goal in his junior career.

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

The other two Thanksgiving afternoon games in the OHL also needed extra time. Oshawa beat Belleville 4-3 in overtime and Sarnia edged Windsor 3-2 in a shootout.

At Brampton, Ont., 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.

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 as Brace snuck a low shot through Machovsky’s legs, setting up Foy's winner 2:51 into overtime.

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).

Generals 4 Bulls 3 (OT)

At Oshawa, Ont., Scott Laughton scored the game winning goal 2:16 into overtime to lift the Generals (6-1-0) over Belleville (3-2-1).

Sting 3 Spitfires 2 (SO)

At Windsor, Ont., Reid Boucher scored the shootout winner as Sarnia (3-3-1) defeated the Spitfires (3-3-2).

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
