Thief River Falls 3, East Grand Forks 2 OT
Kent Peterson scored the game-winning goal 23 seconds into overtime to lift Thief River Falls over East Grand Forks Senior High on Tuesday.
Thief River Falls led 2-1 entering the third period. Macauley Useldinger scored 46 seconds into the final period on assists from Jake Useldinger and Henry Gutierrez to force overtime.
“We battled back from a 2-1 deficit and got the opportunity to go into overtime,” Senior High coach Cory Chupka said. “We worked hard, we battled along the boards and we’re heading into the section tournament with a good feeling.”
Lucas Dillon scored the lone goal of the first period for Thief River Falls. Senior High’s Nick Ohman and the Prowlers’ Peterson picked up second-period tallies.
“They have some skill up front, but for the most part I thought we played pretty well,” Chupka said. “The shots didn’t indicate how we played.”
Kyle Storbakken had 33 saves for the Green Wave, while Thief River Falls’ Zane Gothberg had nine stops.
Senior High dropped to 9-14-1. The Minnesota Section 8A tournament begins Feb. 26.
