Kings settle for tie despite record-tying performance by Zach Masterson

Posted: May 16th, 2014 @ 2:10am

Zach Masterson tied a modern Kingston junior record Thursday night but it wasn't enough to get the Kingston Kings past the Gloucester Griffins in an Ontario Junior C Lacrosse League game at Centre 70.

The Kings blew a pair of one-goal leads in the final five minutes of the third period, and a two-goal lead in overtime as they settled for a 12-12 tie before a home-opening crowd of about 120.

Masterson's five-goal, five-assist performance matched the modern team record of 10 points in a game set in 2009 at Clarington by Tim Bergin and tied last July at Gloucester by Josh Smith. The all-time Kingston junior record, 13 points, was set by Bryan Alexander in a game July 27, 1975, against St. Regis.

Masterson's fourth goal of the game, an unassisted shorthanded effort at 11:00 of the third period, launched the Kings on a four-minute flurry during which they scored three times to turn an 8-6 deficit into a 9-8 lead. The teams then traded goals until Gloucester's Tony Dillon scored with just 38 seconds left in the period, with Griffins goaltender Ryan Ogden on the bench for a sixth attacker, to force overtime.

Masterson assisted on two Kingston goals in the first three minutes of the 10-minute extra period, by J.P. DiFilippo and Josh Smith, but the Kings couldn't hold the lead. Gloucester's Curtis Smith scored his third goal of the game at 4:13 and Francis Alberti-Brunet tied the game for the Griffins just 36 seconds later.

The game was scoreless the rest of the way.

DiFilippo had a career game for the Kings, with three goals and three assists. Smith also had a six-point night for Kingston, including a pair of goals. Kaleb Bingley and Logan Rose scored the other Kingston goals.

Besides Curtis Smith's three goals, Gloucester got three goals from Josh O'Connell and two from Zack O'Gorman. Ryan Lafranchise, David Plots, Dillon and Alberti-Brunet scored the other goals for the Griffins. O'Gorman and O'Connell each enjoyed six-point games for the visitors.

Both teams were 4-for-6 on the power play, with a shorthanded goal against. For the first time this year the Kings outshot an opponent, 69-47, including 11-8 in overtime.

For Gloucester, the tie ended a 31-game losing streak in league and playoff competition. The Griffins are winless since June, 2012, save for three exhibition victories over Kingston the last two preseasons.

Kingston, 1-1-1 two weeks into the season, resumes play Thursday, May 22 against the Whitby Warriors.
