Archibald’s OT winner lifts Comets past Checkers


Darren Archibald delivers for the Comets.

He scores the game-winning overtime goal to lift Utica past the Checkers 4-3 on Tuesday night.

The Comets led 2-0 in the second period, only to see Charlotte respond with three unanswered goals to jump in front.

With 54 seconds remaining in regulation, Reid Boucher broke through to send the game to overtime, where Archibald scored off a feed from Brendan Gaunce to end it.

Thatcher Demko made 33 stops to pick up the win in net.  Overall, the Comets have now won five of six.

They return to action on Friday night against the Springfield Thunderbirds.
