Morrissey scored with 16 seconds remaining in regulation time to break a 1-1 tie, and lift the Regals to a 2-1 win over the Pownal Red Devils.
The Red Devils still lead the best-of-five P.E.I. Midget AAA Hockey League championship series 2-1, but the Regals will have a chance to pull even in Game 4 at the Jacques Cartier Arena in Alberton on Tuesday. The opening faceoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
At the Pownal Sports Centre, the teams played a scoreless first period, and Keaton Horne’s power-play goal opened the scoring for the Regals at 7:35 of the middle frame. The score remained 1-0 until Grant Koughan tied the game with one minute left in the third period.
Tyson Arsenault, Isaac Callaghan, Silas Handrahan and Chandler Wood earned assists for the Regals. Barrington Duffy and Brian Leslie assisted on Pownal’s goal.
Winning goaltender was Bronson Banks. Colby Landrigan was between the pipes for Pownal.
