GALLERY: Rock rallies in 3rd to knock off Gold Miners

TIMMINS, Ont. – The Timmins Rock rallied from a third period deficit by striking four times in the final frame to upend the red-hot Kirkland Lake Gold Miners 5-2 in a Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League match-up Wednesday at McIntyre Arena.

Gregory Trudeau-Paquet gave the visiting Gold Miners the lead with the lone goal of the opening 20 minutes as he picked up his ninth marker of the campaign at 2:33.

Kirkland Lake then went up by a pair 4:07 into the middle stanza thanks to a Hunter Foreshaw power play goal.

However, Timmins countered just 50 seconds later to commence their comeback compliments of a Derek Sequin effort.

Seguin’s second of the night and ninth overall drew the Rock level 5:43 into the third to knot the score at 2-2.

Timmins came right back as well on the next shift and picked up the eventual game-winner from A.J. Campbell.

A late two-man advantage strike from Keegan McMullen allowed the home side to add some insurance in the latter stages of the contest before Riley Brosseau’s fourth iced it for the Rock moments later to complete back-to-back power play prowess.

Riley Robitaille had two assists for the Rock in the triumph as did Alex Elie for Kirkland Lake in the setback.

Tyler Masternak made 11 saves to record the win while Dawson Rodin faced 29 attempts in a losing cause.

With the outcome Timmins won a for a sixth straight outing while Kirkland Lake lost for the first time this month as their seven-game winning streak came to a close.
