Up 2-0 with under 5 minutes to go. Looks like this ones in the bag for Team Manitoba. And a loss for BC in the second game of this year’s Western Canada U16 Challenge.

That is until Manitoba takes a penalty and BC rolls out a desperate power play unit. Seconds later, provincials winning NSWC captain Dante Hannoun (Delta) pots one on helpers from former BWC rival Jake Kryski (Vancouver) and Tyler Jost (PoE).

Four minutes later, with the BC net empty, and six skaters pressing, Kryski scores to tie, on helpers from ex-BWC captain Dante Fabbro, and Josh Anderson, (Cowichan Valley).

Then with seven seconds left in OT, Kryski scores again on another set up from Fabbro to give BC an incredible  game two win.

The team defeated Team Saskatchewan 5-4 in the opener Thursday.

Team BC’s next match-up will be against Team Alberta with puck drop at 10:00 am PST tomorrow (Nov 2).
