Hawks lose at Seattle, 6-5, on goal with less than second left in overtime


The Portland Winterhawks picked up a point, but lost a high-scoring Western Hockey League game to Seattle, 6-5 in overtime Saturday at ShoWare Center in Kent, Wash.

It was a tough loss — Seattle's Scott Eansor scored with less than a second left in the five-minute overtime.

Earlier, Caleb Jones appeared to score a goal and give Portland a win, but the play was overturned after a video review.

Portland (28-25-3-0) blew an early 2-0 lead, but Alex Schoenborn's goal at 7:51 of the third period gave them a 5-4 lead. But Ryan Gropp scored his second goal at 11:57 to tie it.

Seattle moved to 30-22-3-0.

Alex Overhardt, Rodrigo Abols, Evan Weinger and Keoni Texeira also scored for Portland.

Adin Hill gave up six goals on 54 shots. Logan Flodell made 28 saves for Seattle.

The Hawks play at 4 p.m. Monday against Victoria at Veterans Memorial Coliseum.
