The Wallaceburg Lakers needed a shootout to get past the Wheatley Sharks 4-3.

The Lakers were leading 3-1 late in the game, but Wheatley scored two goals in the final minute to force the extra frame.

“We gotta go even harder when it comes to the last 2-3 minutes of games and close it off, we wouldn’t have even been in a shootout,” says Wallaceburg Assistant Coach Mike Oliveira. “But these guys will learn and they’ll respond. Step-by-step we’ll do what we can to teach ’em.”

The loss is the Sharks’ fifth straight.

Wallaceburg is off until Saturday night, while Wheatley is back in action on Friday night.
