Report filed by Scott Coffman for MayorsManor…

Colton Yellow Horn scored 27 seconds into overtime completing the Ontario Reign comeback on Friday night at the Citizens Business Bank Arena beating the Stockton Thunder 5-4. Yellow Horn took a pass from defenseman Paul Mara and fired a shot beating Stockton goalie Cody Reichard high over his left shoulder finishing a frantic rally by the Reign which saw them score three times in the final 7:06 of the third period.

The Reign’s rally was started by rookie Mario Lamoureux who had two goals on the night. It was Lamoureux’s second goal of the night started the comeback for the Reign. Brady Calla threw a shot towards the front of the net leaving a rebound for Lamoureux to put home.

“I just stopped in front and had must have been three or four whacks at it,” said Lamoureux “I actually didn’t see it go in but I heard everyone cheer so I just assumed it was in.” Lamoureux’s eight goal of the season proved to be the catalyst behind the comeback.

CJ Stretch tied the game up a couple minutes later deflecting a shot by Captain Derek Couture that trickled past Reichard. After a late power play goal by Stockton’s Harrison Reed, his second of the night, the Reign pulled goaltender Chris Carrozzi.

With the extra attacker on the ice, a point shot from Justin Pender was kicked out by Reichard but the rebound sat there for defenseman Chris Huxley who took his time and buried the rebound tying the score at 4.

The Reign had trailed in the game since late in the first period when Reed scored his first goal of the game on a rebound play in front of the net where the puck snuck by Carrozzi to make it a 2-1 game. Nathan Deck scored early in the third period to extend the Thunder’s lead by two goals. Yannick Reindeau started the scoring in the game sneaking a one handed shot past Carrozzi, Lamoureux scored for the Reign to tie the game at one 6 minutes later

Reign defenseman Cameron Burt was ejected early in the second period after he threw a hit against Thunder forward Matt Reber. Reber was injured on the play as he slammed into the boards in front of the Reign bench. Reber did not return to the game with an undisclosed injury. Burt was given a 5 minute major penalty for interference along with the game misconduct.

Locked out Los Angeles King forward, Kyle Clifford, finished the night with one assist.
