Ontario Reign win in Las Vegas for first time in nearly two years

Ontario Reign at Wranglers ECHL MayorsManorThe following report was filed for MayorsManor by Scott Coffman…

Paced by a Gordie Howe hat trick from the returning Brodie Sheahan, the Ontario Reign held on for a 5-3 victory against the Las Vegas Wranglers on Friday night in Nevada. Sheahan, a 5-foot-11 forward from Lethbridge, Alberta, is playing his first season for the Reign and had missed the previous six games.

Red-hot Colton Yellow Horn scored just a 1:34 into the game, giving the Reign an early lead. Sheahan assisted on that goal and then added a marker of his own later in the opening period.

Ontario was comfortably ahead 4-0 when a few minutes into the second period the Wranglers started to fight back. Geoff Paukovich scored their first goal of the night and later in the period the Wranglers scored twice in a 56-second span, making it just a one goal game.

The final few seconds of the middle stanza were marred by several fights between the two teams, including Shehan completing is Gordie Howe hat trick with a scrap and an extra 10 minute misconduct for good measure. He also earned the number one star of the game for his efforts.

Mario Lamoureux scored the final Reign goal of the night with time winding down in the third period, extending the Reign lead to 5-3.

Chirs Carrozzi had a strong third period in net for the Reign, turning aside all 15 shots he faced over the final 20 minutes and securing the victory.

A rematch will take place tonight in Las Vegas at the Orleans Arena. Ontario then returns home for a Sunday matinee game vs Bakersfield.
