The Newfoundland Growlers dropped a 5-4 decision to the Worcester Railers Thursday night at the Mary Brown’s Centre.
After falling behind 4-1, a pair of goals from Jackson Berezowski and an equalizer from Tate Singleton with under three minutes remaining had overtime looming large. However, Ashton Calder ruined the party as he sniped one home on the powerplay with 1:47 left in regulation to seal a 5-4 Railers win.
The two square up once again Friday night.
Meanwhile, original Growler Todd Skirving was named team captain prior to last night’s game. Goulds native James Melindy returns to the team as an assistant captain.
Meanwhile, top scorer Zach O’Brien is on his way back to St. John’s from Europe. He will suit up for the Growlers. O’Brien consistently ends up in the top five in ECHL scoring.
