This one surely ranks as a comeback for the ages. Trailing 5-1 with just over 10 minutes to play in the third period, the Kam River Fighting Walleye staged an epic rally to remain unbeaten atop the standings of the Superior International Jr. Hockey League.
Playing on the road against the reigning SIJHL champion Red Lake Miners, Kam River scored four goals in a span of three minutes, four seconds in the third period to force overtime. Then, at the 2:29 mark of OT, forward Holden Woodcroft scored his fourth goal of the season to cap a frantic comeback for the Fighting Walleye.
The 6-5 win for the Fighting Walleye improved its record to a perfect 5-0-0 in the early going of the SIJHL season. Kam River and Red Lake face off again tonight in the second game of the weekend set.
