CBA/J-D hockey drops semifinal in two OTs

Brothers fall, 3-2, to Auburn on Orlando goal

— Though the Brothers had the majority of shots in that period, regulation ended in a 2-2 tie. So did the first overtime period, where Durkin got a breakaway chance to end it, but Brendan Entenmann turned him away, one of 31 saves on the night.

Decker, for his part, had a quieter evening, only making 18 saves, but as the game went into the second OT, he, and every other CBA/J-D partisan, recalled how the Brothers had used multiple OT’s to knock off Skaneateles in this same round a year ago.

Auburn wanted a different ending, though. And early in the second OT, Sean Lattimore shot at the net, and saw the puck bounce off two players (one from each side) before it caromed to Orlando, who was charging at the net. Before Decker could react in time, Orlando pushed the puck past him to end the night.
