The Muskegon Lumberjacks scored three goals in the final period to force overtime and the eventual 5-4 victory over the Green Bay Gamblers Friday night at the Resch Center.
Jesse Tucker got the Gamblers on the board first with his second goal of the season in the final two minutes of the first period before helping on the team's third goal. Mason Lohrei made it 2-0 before Cam Thiesing extended the lead just four minutes later. The Lumberjacks would go on to score four unanswered goals before Lohrei's clutch gene showed up again. He sank a shot with just three seconds left on the clock to tie the game at four for his second goal of the game and his ninth of the season. After a scoreless overtime, the Lumberjacks' David Hymovitch scored the only goal in the shootout to secure the victory for the visiting Lumberjacks.
The two teams square off again at the Resch Center at 7:05 p.m. Tobin Meyer will have the call on 104.1 WRLU and on NEWRadioSportsNetwork.com.
