The Cornwall Colts turned disaster into triumph, and are now one win away from the Central Canada Hockey League title.
The Colts blew leads of 4-1 and 5-3 in Game 5 of the CCHL final series, and needed a double overtime goal from Mark Borkowski to win 6-5 on the road Wednesday night against the Nepean Raiders.
The win gives Cornwall a 3-2 series lead, with a chance to capture the league title at home Friday (7:30 p.m.).
Mark Rath opened the scoring for the Colts in the first period, which ended 1-0. Cornwall expanded that lead to 4-1 after 40 minutes with goals from Tylor Spink, Kyle Baun and Marly Quince.
But a third period of mistakes nearly cost the Colts. Nepean closed the lead to 4-3 before Quince scored his second of the game to make it 5-3. That's when the wheels officially fell off and Nepean got two goals in the final 6:45 to tie the game.
Colts goalie Lukas Hafner stopped nine shots over two overtime periods before Borkowski scored at 5:49 of period five.
