Toronto, ON - The Utica Comets saw a 2-0 lead turn into a 3-2 overtime loss to the first-place Toronto Marlies at the Ricoh Coliseum, Thursday.

The Comets struck first on a goal by Jalen Chatfield after a pass across the ice by Tanner MacMaster wound up in the back of the net to make it 1-0.

Utica would double that lead with a goal by MacMaster, himself, off a rebound on a shot by Lukas Jasek, three and a half minutes later.

Pierre Engvall scored a one-timer power play goal in the second to make it 2-1, then Vincent Loverde put a one-timer of his own home in the third to tie it up.

With 32 seconds left in overtime, Adam Brooks scored the game-winner as the Comets get a point but fail to notch the second.

Richard Bachman finished with 39 saves in the game, but falls to 13-13-4 with the loss.

These two teams return to Utica to square off at the Adirondack Bank Center on Friday. Puck drop is at 7 p.m.
