U15 Cariboo Cougars win a thriller

The U15 Cariboo Cougars ended their weekend in thrilling fashion.

Sunday morning at Kin 1, they beat the Greater Vancouver Canadians 3-2 in overtime on a goal by Lucas Woodbeck.

The teams were tied 1-1 after the first period and 2-2 after the second.

Woodbeck also scored in regulation time, and Grady Gustafson had the other goal for the home team. Brett Peebles had assists on all three Cariboo goals.

Kaleb Miller was the winning goaltender.

Sunday’s victory came on the heels of a 3-2 Saturday loss to the Canadians. In that one, Preston Pierre and Brody Wood drew the Cougars into a 2-2 tie in the second period but James Lin scored the eventual winner for the visitors later in the middle frame.

The Cougars now have a 1-2-0-1 record, good for fifth place in the 10-team division.

They don’t play next weekend.
