RIDGEFIELD — Sweet passes, sprawling saves, big hits … the first game of a home-and-home series between the Ridgefield and Darien boys hockey teams had something of everything.

Even a game-winning goal in overtime.

Will Forrest scored just 25 seconds into the eight-minute extra session to give Ridgefield a 3-2 victory on Friday evening at the Winter Garden Ice Arena. Forrest collected a loose puck in the slot and beat Darien goalie Henri Pfeifle with a backhand into the top of the net.

“All the credit to my linemates,” Forrest said, referring to fellow seniors Nick Cullinan and Matt Walker. “They forced a turnover and I was able to capitalize.”
