On the brink of elimination, the Chatham Maroons staved off another strong performance from the London Nationals to win a tight game four, 5-4, and force game five.

London kicked off the attack with a powerplay goal from Justin Murray midway through the first period.

After recovering from a broken finger, Guelph Storm prospect Levi Tetrault tied the score netting his first playoff goal in his first game, scoring an unassisted marker to knot things at 1-1 entering the first intermission.

In the second, it was all Chatham, as Teddy McGeen and Jared Dennis scored to put Chatham up by two heading into the third.

After Brennan Feasey scored four minutes into the third to put Chatham up 4-1, the Maroons let up enough to allow London to fight back.

London scored an incredible 3 goals in 45 seconds between 5:36 and 6:19 of the third period to tie things up 4-4.

Chatham then got the last burst of offense they’d need, as Steven Beenackers potted the eventual game winner prior to the midway point in the period.

Chatham gave the start, and got 43 saves from netminder Bo Bessette in the victory.

Chatham will host London for game five on Friday. Puck drop is at 8:30pm.
