The Manchester Monarchs began their trip to Virginia with a pair of wins, but leave with a loss after falling 4-3 in overtime to the Norfolk Admirals on Saturday.

Jordan LaVallee-Smotherman got Manchester on the board just under three minutes into the game with his fifth goal of the year and Cory Ward put the Monarchs up 2-0 just a few minutes later.

Norfolk’s Michael Young and Manchester’s Zac Lynch traded goals before the first intermission, but that would be it for Manchester’s offense despite once again outshooting their opponent, something they’ve done in every game this year to date.

Tommy Schutt added his second goal of the series in the second period and Grant Besse tied the contest up on a 5-on-3 power play early in the third period.

Angelo Miceli broke the deadlock with an unassisted goal 3:21 into overtime.

The game-winning goal was Miceli’s second point of the contest. Michael Young also ended with two points for Norfolk., both in assists. For Manchester, LaVallee-Smotherman added an assist on Lynch’s goal.

The Monarchs (5-3-1-1) return to SNHU Arena on Friday, Nov. 10 for a 7 p.m. matchup against the Jacksonville Icemen.
