The Growlers have a two games to none lead in the best of seven Kelly Cup ECHL final with two weekend overtime wins over Toledo Walleye.

Sunday night at 16:01 of the overtime session Scott Pooley fired a shot that went in to give the Growlers the win before 5689 fans at Mile One.It was the second goals of the game for Pooley.

Saturday night again in overtime and the Growlers won that one 4-3. Josh Kestner had the winner in that game. Now the next three games will be in Toledo .

 

Kevin Tansey of Toledo was assessed a five minute major and a game misconduct for an elbow hit to the head of Growlers forward Josh Kestner. Kestner was taken off on a stretcher and later word came he was alert but did not move for several minutes after the hit.

The first game of the Kelly Cup ECHL finals should have been one the Newfoundland Growlers should have won in regulation time. They let a 3-nothing lead in the third period slip away and let Toledo tie the game at three all and force overtime.

 

The hometown crowd of 6261 jumped to their feet as Josh Kestner fired home his second goal of the game at 4:48 of the extra session to give the Growlers the 4-3 win and a 1-nothing lead in the series.

 

Zack O’Brien and Hudson Elynuik had the other goals for the Growlers.

 

Michael Garteig was again stellar in goal for the Growlers making 30 saves many from close in.

 

Game two goes Sunday night at seven at Mile One and if game one is any indication this is going to be a great series. Action was fast there was some heavy hitting and great goal tending.
