Konrad Steck, 14, who recently helped Lafayette High win the state Group 3A championship in cross country, broke his older brother’s all-time Colonial Road Runners record for the 14-and-under age group.
In Saturday’s Governor’s Land 5K in the Williamsburg area, Konrad finished in 16:18, third overall among males. Kurtis Steck’s previous record was 16:42 set in 2009.
The Norfolk Admirals looked as if they would sweep Portland in a two-game AHL series at Scope, but the Pirates overcame a late two-goal deficit to force overtime, then won 4-3 by taking a shootout 3-2 over five rounds.
The Admirals (9-6-0-4), who won Friday's game, took a 3-0 first-period lead in Saturday's rematch on goals by Chris Wagner, Charles Sarault and Dave Steckel. But the Pirates broke John Gibson's shutout 8:13 into the second period, thanks to Lucas Lessio, then pulled even on third-period goals by former Admiral Brandon McMillan with 3:04 left in regulation and Andy Miele with 1:24 to go.
In the shootout, Miele, Brandon Yip and Ethan Werek scored for the Pirates (7-5-1-2) -- the Phoenix Coyotes' top affiliate -- on Gibson. The Admirals went 2-for-5, with Rickard Rakell and Chris Wagner converting.
