Blenkhorn scores two goals for the Doors

AMHERST – Colson Overhead Doors has taken a 1-0 lead in their best-of-three championship series against J&K Electric.

Colson took the lead after beating J&K 3-2 during Amherst Adult Hockey League action Sunday night at Amherst Stadium.

The win wasn’t without controversy.

With only a few minutes left in the game it looked like J&K may have tied the game 3-3. It appeared the puck may have hit the underside of the top mesh of the net, and then quickly popped back out.

J&K teammates began to celebrate what they thought was a game-tying goal but play continued, and confusion ensued.

After the next whistle, J&K complained to the referees but their protests fell on deaf ears.

Brad Blenkhorn led Colson with two goals followed by Bill Jobes with one goal. Matt Colson had two assists, while Mark Bennett, Jarrod Fraser, Ryan Reynolds and Corey Robichaud had one assist each.

Adam MacDonald and Shane O’Byrne scored for the Electric, with Dan Anger, Brad Linkletter and Justin Matthews getting one assist each.

J&K dominated the second half of the third period, peppering Colson goaltender Steve Brown with shot after shot. He ended up making 26 saves on 28 shots, while his counterpart the J&K net, Scott Clarke, made 14 saves on 17 shots.

Game 2 in the best-of-three series is Tuesday night at Amherst.

J&K’s Matthews and MacDonald lead the AAHL playoff point race with four goals and four assists each, with the Doors Ryan Reynolds in third place with four goals and two assists.
