Mariners get OT win over Amherst

By Kevin Northup Jan 15, 2024 | 12:46 PM

The Yarmouth Mariners needed overtime for their first win of 2024.

Michael Marquez scored his first goal since returning to the team earlier this month, as they beat Amherst 4-3 at Mariners Centre Sunday.

Marquez fired the winner home 17 seconds into the extra frame, after the Ramblers tied it with less than a minute to go in the 3rd.

The California native says it means a lot to him to be a Mariner.

“We never give up. That locker room, that logo and this town mean so much to us. To win that game, it raises our spirits up to a whole other level,” said Marquez.

Will Chisholm, Jared Pitman and Nathan Carter also scored for the Mariners, who snapped a 3-game losing streak.

Next up for the team, a rescheduled road game in Truro on Wednesday night.

The team will then host Pictou County on Friday and division-leading Summerside on Saturday night.
