GM Ice Dogs edge Lakers after lengthy shootout

MARATHON, Ont. – Troy Williams had the lone goal in a shootout that went seven rounds and 14 shooters as the Dryden GM Ice Dogs slipped past the Fort Frances Lakers 3-2 Thursday evening in a Superior International Junior Hockey League neutral site preseason contest held at Marathon Arena.

Alex Rezansoff continued his torrid offensive pace for the Lake in exhibition action as he put Fort Frances up 1-0 after one period of play.

After a scoreless middle session Dryden tied it in the third off the stick of Blake Berg.

Mark Bouchard of the GM Ice Dogs and Bowen Alcock of the Lakers then traded markers later in the frame to force OT.

After a five-minute extra session solved nothing a lengthy shootout ensued before Dryden eventually prevailed thanks to Williams’ lone effort.

Josh Martin and Tate Sproston were the Dryden goaltenders while Devon Tappenden and Ryan Ferguson were the Fort Frances netminders.

The shots on goal were unavailable.

The SIJHL preseason then concludes Sunday as Fort Frances travels to Ear Falls to tangle with the English River Miners at 3 p.m.

The Iron Rangers then went in front thanks to Evan Erickson at 3:39 and Seth Chumley midway through the session.

Fort Frances would pull within one at 11:10 when Mason Meyer finished off the work of Nic Proulx and Nick Sherbinin.

Making use of a seven-minute power opportunity the Lakers tied it at 13:53 thanks to Bryson Jasper then got the game-winner from Alex Rezansoff with 2:35 to go to complete the rally.

Stirling Wright went the distance in net for the winning side making 27 saves.
