Flivvers iced in overtime, 3-2
NEGAUNEE — Brandon Borlace was credited with a goal that ricocheted off a Kingsford defender’s skate, 3:14 into overtime, as Negaunee defeated Kingsford 3-2 in a Great Lakes Hockey Conference game Friday at the Negaunee Ice Arena.
“We did not play well,” said Kingsford head coach Greg Wadge. “Evan Anderson did play great in our goal however.”
The Flivvers, who dress 12 skaters for each game, were without senior Kobe Gordon due to an injured wrist.
Iron Mountain student David Juul got the Flivvers on the scoreboard first, lighting the lamp 2:47 into the contest. Jack Perpich was credited with the helper on Juul’s goal.
The Flivvers’ Carter Kreski tied the game with 36 seconds remaining to force overtime. Hunter Fortner was credited with the assist.
