Bennett scores late to give Wild a road win over Pride


CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – Bennett MacArthur scored with 9.6 seconds remaining to give the Kensington Monaghan Farms Wild a 2-1 win over the Charlottetown Bulk Carriers Pride Sunday at MacLauchlan Arena.

The goal came moments after a Pride cross-ice pass resulted in an icing during New Brunswick/Prince Edward Island Major Midget Hockey League action.  Landon Clow and Keiran Gallant had the assists on the game-winning goal.

Noah Griffin gave the host Pride the early 1:39 into the game with assists going to Luke Garnhum and Jacob Squires.

Ryan Richards capitalized on a Pride turnover 25 seconds into the second period to tie it. Dixon MacLeod had the lone assist.

Chad Arsenault made 25 saves for the victory while Erik MacInnis stopped 25 shots in the loss.

Kensington won its seventh straight to improve to 12-2-1-0 while Charlottetown dropped its third straight to fall to 6-7-1-0, including 2-6-1-0 on home ice.

Both Island squads will compete in the Monctonian Challenge beginning Thursday in the Hub City. Charlottetown is in a division with St. John’s, N.L., Valley, N.S., and College du Mont-Saint-Anne while Kensington’s division includes Pictou County, N.S., Ajax, Ont., and College St-Hilaire.
