The Cedar Kings dominated most of the game against Burnaby, leading 4-0 after one and 9-0 after two.

Mission returned to action on Sunday in Langley, and picked up a 7-6 overtime win over the Port Coquitlam Hitmen.

The back-and-forth contest saw the teams tied at two after one, and the Hitmen jumped out to a 5-3 lead after two.

The Cedar Kings tied the game at five, but then fell behind only to have Makowsky send the game to overtime with three minutes to go.

Makowsky was the overtime hero, scoring eight seconds into the extra frame to give Mission the win.
