The PBCN Selects fired 53 shots at the Cross Lake Islanders yesterday but came up a little short and dropped a 5 to 4 decision at the Whitney Forum.
Keecan Beaulieu was sensational and was able to keep a lot of the Selects big goal scoreres at bay for much of the afternoon.
Cross Lake scored a couple of powerplay goals in the first period and never looked back courtesy of Micah Emiktowt and Bobby Orr Roulette.
The Selects got on track in the second and third with goals courtesy of Kobe Tanuyak,Kalin Roy, Mathis Bacon Labbe and Laryn Chaboyer but couldn't get the equalizer.
Specialty teams were a big part of the game with the Islanders going 2 for 2 while PBCN ended up 0 for 5.
This was a tough loss for the Selects who could of taken over sole possesion of second place over the NCN Flames who remain one point ahead and both teams have played 28 games.
The weekend wasn't a total loss as the Selects beat the first place Peguis Juniors in OT 5 to 4 on Saturday courtesy of the OT winner from Israel Maktar.
