Amazing comeback keeps Tycoons playoff hopes alive!
June 25, Hong Kong
Entering the 3rd period and trailing by a score of 7-4, all seemed lost for the Hong Kong Tycoons who desperately needed a win to stay alive in the playoff race. However two goals in the final 1:18 of the third capped off a 5 goal period and a stunning 9-8 victory over the stunned Sharks.
Elliott Steele picked up a fanned pass in the slot and made no mistake by beating Sharks goalie King Ho with a low shot to the glove side with thirty-four seconds left in the game. The Tycoons victory took the steam away from the hot-handed Jamie Stark of the Sharks who found the net four time during the game.
The Sharks remain in second place in the CIHL standings with 15 points. The Tycoons now have 14 points and the Aces who lost to the Warriors later in the evening remain at 13. It all comes down to the final week of the regular season to see which two teams will battle each other in the semi-finals with the winner advancing to the finals to play the Kowloon Warriors.
The three stars of the game:
1) Elliott Stelle (Tycoons)
2) Jamie Stark (Sharks)
3) Gordon Kean (Tycoons)
