It wasn’t exactly the outcome the Moose were hoping for on Sunday afternoon against the Milwaukee Admirals, but no one could doubt Manitoba’s effort.

The Moose showed great resilience in front of a sold out crowd of 8,812 at the MTS Centre by responding with a goal each of the three times Milwaukee pulled ahead for a lead.

The final Moose goal was a seeing-eye puck off the stick of Jay Harrison to tie the game with just 2:26 remaining in the game.

The fans were treated to an entertaining three-on-three overtime session, where each goalie made big saves to keep their team alive.

In the end it was Milwaukee’s Vinny Saponari who scored the lone shootout goal in the fifth round to give the Admirals a 4-3 win.

Josh Morrissey and Ryan Olsen had the other goals in the game for the Moose.

For Morrissey it was his first career AHL regular season goal. He scored two goals in the 2014 Calder Cup playoffs while with St. John’s.

The Moose are now 3-0-0-1 against the Admirals this season and have now earned at least a point in four of their last five games at the MTS Centre.

Eric Comrie stood tall for the Moose yet again making 34 saves as Manitoba was outshot 38-28.

The Moose wrap up their home stand with a pair of matches against the visiting San Antonio Rampage with the first taking place this coming Wednesday, Dec. 16 at the MTS Centre. Puck drop is scheduled for 7 p.m.
