ANCHORAGE - The Bulldog's Kyle Schempp scored the game-winning goal in overtime as Ferris State won, 3-2 over the Alaska Anchorage Seawolves with three power-play goals in a Western Collegiate Hockey Association game at the Sullivan Arena Friday evening.
The Bulldogs (5-4-2, 4-3-0 WCHA) used man-advantage strikes in the first, second and overtime to dispatch the 5-3-1 Seawolves (2-2-1 WCHA). Ferris State moves into third place in the WCHA standings with the win, while the Seawolves are tied for fifth with five points.
UAA was plagued with penalties throughout the game, being tagged for a season-high 11 infraction and serving 41 minutes in the box. UAA offered FSU eight power-play attempts throughout the 65 minutes of play. Meanwhile, the Seawolves - who killed off a 5-minute penalty early in the third - were scoreless on four power-play attempts.
UAA wasn't able to find the net with the extra attacker, but managed to pick up its first shorthanded strike of the season. Tying the game 3-3 at 9:51 in the third period was sophomore defenseman Jarrett Brown. Brown picked up his first goal of the season after he converted on sophomore forward Tad Kozun's handiwork in front of the net.
The night started when the Bulldogs struck first at 13:48 of the opening stanza, taking advantage of a 5-on-3, 26 seconds into the power play. Freshman forward Corey Mackin picked up his fourth on the season and 10th collegiate point. Assists were credited to Gerald Mayhew and Chad McDonald.
UAA sophomore forward Anthony Conti knotted the game at 14:47 of the second with a wrister through traffic. The goal - which was assisted Brown for his first career multi-point game - went to review and was upheld after senior Blake Tatchell was pushed into the netminder right after the goal. The strike was Conti's fourth of the season, tying him for team lead.
Returning the lead to FSU was senior defenseman Simon Denis at 17:57 of the second with his second on the season. Shempp and Mackin picked up the helpers. Mackin ended the game with a goal and two assists.
The Seawolves were kept to a season-low three shots on goal in the first period, before finding the net eight times in the second and in the third. UAA's one shot on goal in extra minutes was an excellent save by goalie Darren Smith, who used his blocker to dismiss Kozun.
Smith (18 saves) got the win, while sophomore netminder Olivia Mantha (20 saves) drops to 4-3-1 on the season. FSU outshot UAA, 23-20.
The teams unite tomorrow evening at 7:07 p.m. at the Sullivan Arena.
