KENSINGTON, P.E.I. —

Chandler Wood scored twice, including the winner 6:09 into overtime, Sunday to help the Arsenault’s Fish Mart Western Red Wings land the Don Johnson Memorial Cup.

It is the first time they captured the Atlantic junior B hockey title and they did it by knocking off their arch-rival, Kensington Moase Plumbing and Heating Vipers, 4-3 in the final.

It is not the first time Wood has scored a championship-clinching goal.

The Coleman native scored 3:27 into overtime to give the Kensington Monaghan Farms Wild a 3-2 championship-clinching victory over the Charlottetown Bulk Carriers Pride in the 2018 major midget final.

Johnathan Arsenault forced overtime by scoring with 18 seconds left in the third period for the host Vipers.

Red Wings captain Chasse Gallant opened the scoring 35 seconds into the game and added another with 1:36 remaining in the second period. Chandler Wood scored his first of the game 6:25 into the second period.

Isaac Knox had three assists in the win while Silas Handrahan and Isaac Callaghan each chipped in two and Colby MacArthur one before a capacity crowd at the Credit Union Centre in Kensington.

Dylan Wheatley and Ryan Richards also scored for the Vipers. Arsenault had two assists while Richards had one.

Luke Oliver made 38 saves in the win while Caleb Coyle stopped 40 shots in the loss.

The Wings held 1-0 and 3-1 period leads.

More to come.
