Embrun, Ontario – Michael Gallivan’s overtime winner gave the Ottawa West Golden Knights (10-5-1) a 2-1 victory over the Embrun Panthers (5-11-3) on Friday night at the Embrun Arena.

Just 32 seconds into 3-on-3 overtime, Marc Brosseau turned over the puck in the Ottawa West zone, Daniel Startis took it up the ice, dropped it for Max Bush at the point who drove the net on his backhand and gave Michael Gallivan a perfect backdoor pass for the winner.
