Mile One Centre, St. John's, NL -
The Clarenville Caribous are back where they were this time last year; within a game of capturing the Herder Memorial Trophy on a Sunday afternoon at Mile One Centre in St. John's.
Forty-five seconds into the second overtime period, Derrick Kent blocked a shot at the point giving him a breakaway chance on Freddy Diamond. Diamond made the initial save but Brad Crann potted the rebound for the game winner.
The game could have ended 20 seconds earlier in favour of the CeeBees. One shot was rifled off the post, Jason Churchill made a sprawling save on the rebound attempt and a third puck trickle just wide of an open cage.
Final shots on goal were 55-38 in favour of the Caribous.
Other goal scorers for the Herd Saturday night were Chris Mooney, Travis Chapman, and Andrew Pearcey. Netting markers for the CeeBees were Chris Sparkes, Matthew Thomey and David Duffett.
The Caribous can wrap up the Herder with a win in tomorrow, 2 p.m., in Game 5 of the Telegram Herder Memorial Trophy Championship Series.
