A furious third-period comeback by the Goderich Sailors fell just short as they dropped a 5-4 Western Junior C Hockey League decision to the Mitchell Hawks at MRC.

The Sailors end the regular season in last-place as they prepare to face the first-place Walkerton Hawks in their best-of-seven opening round playoff series.

Eli Adair and Josh Martel put Goderich in front 2-0 in the first period on Sunday with assists from Tom Bedour, Evan Rivett and Brandon Priestap.

Mitchell's Brent Kipfer set up Andrew Davis who cut the Sailors' lead in half late in the opening frame.

The second period was all Mitchell as Jade Maxwell, Jalen Aitcheson and Davis put the Hawks up 4-2 through 40 minutes of play.

Tyler Masson scored what turned out the be the game-winner for the Hawks early in the third before the Sailors stormed back to make it close.

Sam Feagan scored twice late in the final period assisted by Martel, Priestap and Shawn Moore.

Goderich Head Coach Mark Uniac says any credit for a big comeback belongs to Mitchell for converting a 2-0 deficit into a 5-2 lead.

The Sailors face the Walkerton Hawks in the first round of the playoffs with Game One of the best-of-seven at MRC Friday at 8:30 PM.

Kincardine faces Wingham in another opening round set which opens in Wingham Wednesday at 8pm.

Hanover visits Mitchell for each team's last regular-season game tomorrow at 7:30 PM.

Walkerton hosts Wingham in their last game of the regular season Wednesday at 8:30 PM.

Both are make-ups for games postponed by bad weather on Saturday night.

The schedule for last opening round pairing will be announced after completion of Wednesday's game.
