Guy Martinson scored the deciding Overtime Shootout goal to give the Adelaide Redwings a 4 - 3 win over the Tigers in Senior B League play last Sunday at Thebarton.
The goal was Martinson’s second of the game, after he opened the scoring early in the first period. Chris Lee, and Matt Gaspari also replied for the Wings. Jeremy Klein, Mark Yeager, and O.P. scored for the Tigers.
Both teams were tied 1 - 1 after the opening period, then Yeager’s goal near the midway mark of the second period put the Tigers in front 2 - 1 after two frames.
Lee’s goal tied the game early in the third, and then Gaspari put them in front, before O.P.’s goal with seven minutes to play tied the game, and sent it to the tie breaking shootout.
Martinson’s deciding shootout goal was on the fourth shot after both teams scored a goal apiece in the first three shoots.
The win gives the Redwings a 5-1-1-0 record for 17 points and a four point lead over the Tigers who sit in second place with a record of 4-2-0-1 for 13 points. The Blackhawks and Falcons are both back in third position on 6 points.
The Redwings outshot the Tigers 39-20 with Johnny Cousins getting the win in goals for the Wings, while Justin Ruston blocked 35 of 39 shots for the Tigers.
Both teams return to action in the Senior B League on Sunday 4 June when the Tigers meet the Falcons in a 3:45 pm match, with the Wings facing off with the Blackhawks at 5:15pm.
