Satellites make huge comeback in Provost, control the game at home to take a 2-0 series lead on Provost
Tofield Satellites took a two-game-to-nothing lead on the Provost Blades in their best-of-seven Battle River Hockey League (BRHL) semi-final series with two massive wins over the weekend.
The first game was on the road in Provost Friday evening, and it set the tone for the whole series from a Tofield perspective.
Things started out a little grim for Tofield, as Provost scored two quick goals early and then Satellites’ goalie Christopher Roy had to leave the game after a collision in the crease. But Jeremy Thom came in and had a strong game and Tofield’s Jake Quast scored with 2:40 remaining in the first period to get Tofield to within a goal. In the second period, Greg Holmberg connected on a powerplay goal at 7:59 to tie the score.
But less than three minutes later Provost recaptured the lead and took a 3-2 lead into the third period.
