Re/Max kept a tenuous three-point grip on first place in Trail Commercial Hockey League action Sunday with a win over OK Tire.
Two-time league scoring champion Graham Proulx put his team on his shoulders, and carried Re/Max to a 5-3 victory.
Proulx netted four goals, including three first-period markers to give the realtors a 3-2 lead heading into the second.
Shawn Venturini scored the first goal of the game for the Tire to make it 2-1, and set up Shane Drake’s first-period blast to cut the lead to one.
The Tire tied it in the second as Venturini put a pass onto the stick of Mike Fudge who made no mistake at 11:11 sending it to the third period locked at 3-3.
With a victory, OK Tire would have pulled to within a point of the league leaders, but it was not to be as Dallas Stanton converted a setup from Jason Vecchio and Gabe Gaudet to net the winner with just 2:49 left in regulation. Proulx would get his fourth unassisted into an empty net for insurance with just 14 seconds left on the clock.
Re/Max and OK Tire are both coming off big wins last week, as Re/Max skated to a 6-4 win over a much-improved Firebird squad, and the Tire doused a hot Arlington team with an 8-3 win.
