Ice Hawks open series with win
The Delta Ice Hawks opened the first round of the Pacific Junior Hockey League playoffs with a 4-3 overtime win against the visiting North Vancouver Wolf Pack in Game 1 of their best-of-seven series.
North Van were on the board first just three minutes into Tuesday's game. After trading goals in the opening frame, the score was 2-2 headed into the second period.
The Wolf Pack again took the lead in the second period, before Brent Chreptyk scored midway through the third period to tie the game at 3-3.
That sent the game to overtime, where Aaron Merrick scored his second goal of the night to give the Ice Hawks the win.
Anthony Brito was the other Delta scorer, while Mitchell Walter, Mak Barden, Spencer Schoen, Brito, and Merrick each tallied assists.
Delta goalie Alexander Ahnert made 20 saves as the Ice Hawks outshot the Wolf Pack 44-23.
