Norfolk Sails Away – Penguins Lose In OT

Gibbons with a nice Wrister from just above the face off circle giving the WBS Penguins the early lead With 13.16 left in the first pens leading in goals and shots still 1-0 Pens SOG WBS 3 Norfolk 1.

WBS gets first power play of the game as Norfolk’s Guentzel sits for hooking, the WBS Pens get some quality shots but no goal. WBS Penguins get another chance on the power play as Norfolk sits for a slash. No joy again on the power play for WBS.

Farnham sits for interference with less than 5 seconds to go that will be a carryover power play for Norfolk end of the first still 1-0 WBS Penguins.

Norfolk with a few good chances in the opening minutes of the second period but the Pens remain in the lead,  Zatkoff holding his ground. Just after the action in front of the WBS goal the Admirals Wagner would score on the pens at 6:06 of the second making it one all.

Halfway through the second score still tied at one each Norfolk now out shooting Pens 19- 12. WBS Penguins pick up the play a bit in the second half of the period Norfolk dominated the first half then Norfolk’s  Peter Holland scores on a breakaway making it 2-1 Norfolk.

WBS Penguins would score off a faceoff and bang bang play and it would be Jayson Megna getting the goal making it 2 all late in the second period.

Third started Norfolk on the power play WBS kills it some good end to end action WBS Penguins getting some good chances Trevor Smith walked in bit was robbed at the door step.

WBS Penguins continue to get great cances the Megna, Gibbons , Smith line really getting things moving but not getting the goals. Gibbons with a nice feed to smith but no connection at the net.



Late in the third WBS goes on the power play but no goal for the Pens tonight’s regulation would end 2-2 heading to OT.

It would be Norfolk getting the better of the OT as referee Geno Binda finally found his whistle and decides to use it in OT of all of the times nevermind the missed calls , yes on both siudes that he couldn’t find his whistle for during regulation but to call a hook on Ferriero in OT really ? well needless to say it cost us the game was it the right call? to me it looked questionable but thats me any way that was the game Norfolk won in OT 3-2
