Norwich Edges Southern Maine in OT 1-0

Norwich Edges Southern Maine in OT 1-0

NORTHFIELD, Vt. -- Junior Tyler Piacentini (South Weymouth, Mass.) scored the only goal of the game with eight seconds remaining in overtime to give the nationally ranked Norwich University Cadets a 1-0 victory over the visiting University of Southern Maine Huskies Saturday afternoon at Kreitzberg Arena.

The win improved the Cadets record to 12-6-0 overall and 7-4-0 in the league. The Huskies dropped their fourth straight game to fall to 5-11-1 overall and 2-9-0 in NEHC play.

The teams played through 60 minutes of regulation time and were nearing the end of the five-minute overtime period when Piacentini fired a shot home for his seventh goal of the season.

USM sophomore goalie Dylan Pietrangelo (Port Robinson, Ontario), making his first start of the season, played brilliantly stopping 35 shots. Sophomore Braeden Ostepchuk (Lethbridge, Alberta) made 19 saves to earn his ninth win, and fourth shutout, of the season.

Southern Maine will continue its stretch of six consecutive road games next Friday (7:00 p.m.) traveling to the University of New England. Norwich also hits the road playing at New England College on Friday (7:30 p.m.).
