Updated: December 17, 2012

The Grand Falls-Windsor Cataracts showed they were a team to be reckoned with in the Newfoundland and Labrador Senior Hockey League (NLSHL) on Sunday.  After the first period of play, the Cataracts found themselves in a deep hole, down 4-0 against the Caribous.  The Cats pulled within 3 goals at one point but soon found themselves down four goals again when the score got to 5-1.

The Cataracts never gave up and battle back to tie the score at 5-5 and eventually went on to win 6-5 in a shootout on what fans were describing as a spectacular goal by Andrew Pearcey.

Brad Gallagher scored three times for the Cats, while Andre Gill and Brandon Nicholas chipped in singles.  The Caribous goals were scored by Dustin Russell, Steven Oates, Brandon Roach, Andrew Sweetland and Steve Yetman.

Elsewhere the Western Royals came up with a 6-4 win against the Gander Flyers on Sunday, after dropping a game on Saturday night.  The Western Royals goalie made the difference in this game, coming up with some big saves, especially late in the third.

Mark Robinson, Scott Doody, Brett Morrisson, Darren Langdon and Cory Blackmore scored for the Royals.  Chad Locke, Tyler Gale, Spencer Corcoran and Andrew White chipped in goals for the Flyers.

The Royals win puts them up 2 points for third in the standings with the Gander Flyers and Eastlink Cee Bee Stars nipping at their heels.
