Reid Wilson's OT winner caps Jimmies 4-3 comeback at UMary
The Jimmies got their first overtime win since they beat Minot 3-2 in a shootout earlier this year on Jan. 17
The University of Jamestown hockey team started slowly coming off a ten-day break but Reid Wilson took the most important shot of the night at the University of Mary. Wilson went tape to twine as the Jimmies (7-6-4) took down the Marauders (10-2-3) 4-3 in overtime on Dec. 1.
The Jimmies got an early chance when Keaton Cline took a shot from the corner and it flies up in the air and is caught by the Mary goalie. With 13:08 to in the first period, the Marauders Garrett Freeman attempted a wrap-around and it bounced out front to Zach Garrett, slotting it home to put the Marauders up 1-0. After the Jimmies sent the puck out of the zone, the Marauders' Marshall Tschida chased it down in the neutral zone and skated in and sniped one stick side past goalie Tyson Brouwer to make the game 2-0 with 6:22 to go in the opening frame.
With 6:40 to go in the second period, the Jimmies won a faceoff and Jordon Kromm set a pick at the faceoff dot after passing the puck to Jason Richter whose shot trickled through goalie Conan Hayton and just managed to find its way across the line before Andrew Heckman was able to clear it out of danger. Later in the period, the Marauders extended their lead back out to two when Riley Scanlon took a shot that snuck through Brouwer who elbowed the puck into the net. With 70 seconds left in the period, Logan Berggren dug a puck out of the corner and found Marquez Ginger in front who one-timed it in to make it a 3-2 game in favor of the Marauders.
With 10:51 to go in the game, the Jimmies’ Bo Cornell took a shot from the point that hit the skate of Tschida as he was trying to get his foot out of the way and past Hayton to tie the game up at 3. After the goal, Hayton smacked his stick on the goal post out of frustration.
The Jimmies started the overtime on the power play and Wilson took the shot from the point through traffic that found its way past Hayton for the 4-3 win.
The Jimmies were happy with the way they played in this game despite giving up three goals, with head coach Dean Stork wrapping the game up in a very succinct way.
“We dominated the game. They capitalized on three mistakes,” Stork said.
