ThunderCats dodge Bullet

Lancaster Aquarius ThunderCats 5  P.E.I. Stars 4 O/T
Lancaster leads Best of Five Atlantic Cup Final  1-0

The Lancaster Aquarius ThunderCats dominated early, watched Prince Edward Isand take control through the middle stages, but prevailed 5-4 in overtime to win Game 1 of the best-of-five Atlantic Cup final over the visiting Stars.
Game 2 is Saturday at Cahill Stadium in Summerside, PEI.
In front of 1,869 fans at the Lord Beaverbrook Rink, Lancaster's Tim Jones tipped home a Wes Jarvis powerplay point blast to tie the contest 4-4 forcing overtime.
In the extra session, PEI swarmed the ThunderCats and goaltender Nadew Befekadu. A Stars' defencemen gambled from the blueline to fire a shot from the high slot only to have the puck hit Lancaster forward Jason Underhill on the shinpads.
The play created a Lancaster three-on-one with Underhill holding on to the puck deep in PEI territory. His cross-crease pass was banged home by David Reynolds at 2:18, the re-direction beating goaltender Kendall Palmer, who was sensational in the Stars' net.
Palmer faced 44 Lancaster shots while Befekadu saw 27 steered his way.
Former Saint John Flames' winger Kevin Baker had a pair of goals for Lancaster. Other singles went to Paul Andrea and Jones.
Mike MacDonald, Rob Bennett, Mike Kennedy and captain Stacey Smallman replied for PEI.
The ThunderCats led 2-1 after a period and the teams were deadlocked 3-3 entering the third.
