The Cariboo Cougars season ended in heartbreaking fashion in Calgary last night. The Cougars lost 3-2 in overtime to the Calgary Buffaloes to lose the Pacific Regional championship series 2-0.

Booker Daniel scored for the Cats early in the first period to give them an early lead. Calgary tied it up with a goal from Jayden Grubbe in the second before Curtis Hammond gave the Cougars the lead with just over 10 minutes to play.

Calgary again tied it up with a goal from Justin Ross to send the game to overtime. 

Jayden Grubbe scored 46 seconds into overtime for his second of the game to win it for the Buffaloes.

The loss marks the end of a great run for the Cougars who won the BCMML title and were two wins shy of the Telus Cup.
