Union squeaks past MHOCK in overtime, 4-3

by Joe Barbito

An overtime goal from Union Captain Cole Maier gave the Dutchmen a 4-3 win in Historic Matthews Arena.

Scoring opened just four minutes into the first period when Brandon Hawkins found Lincoln Griffin with a quick pass from behind the net to set up a tough angle shot that snuck past Union goaltender Darion Hanson. Just two and a half minutes later Tyler Madden scored his third goal of the season, tipping home a shot from Jeremy Davies at the blue line.

Brett Supinski scored back to back goals at the end of the first period, the second of which came on a Northeastern power play.

Liam Pecoraro would put the Huskies back up 3-2 off a feed from Davies in the slot on the power play. That would be the only goal in the second period.

Barely two minutes into the third period, the Dutchmen tied it up again in the dying moments of a power play. Supinski found himself on the scoresheet gaining his third assist of the season setting up Sebastian Vidmar. After a hard fought third period, the game would go to overtime.

23 seconds into the extra frame Maier scored to send the fans to the doors.

Northeastern will face Union again on Saturday, 10/20 at 7pm. WRBB will begin pregame coverage at 6:45pm.
