Jack Panting scored twice, and Greg Gairns scored the winner on a power-play with 50 seconds remaining in the third to give the Alumni team a 4-3 win in the 2015 Razzy's Junior C All-Star Game on Tuesday night in Pownal.
Panting gave the Alumni a 3-1 lead midway through the third period, but the Junior C All-Stars stormed back late with a neat backhand goal by Joel MacIsaac of the South Side MacDonald's Excavation / EF MacPhee Lynx and a point shot from Curtis Gant of the North River Island Excavators Flames that snuck through to tie the game at three. However, after a late hooking call to the All-Stars, Gairns capitalized with a quick one-timed shot from the corner of the crease for the winner.
Despite the difficult road conditions after Monday night's storm, the game was able to raise almost $4,000 for Dave "Hippie" MacDonald who is recovering from triple-bypass heart surgery.
