14U Ice Dawgs Split Weekend Games
The 14U Ice Dawgs hosted two home games at the Valley Event Center Feb. 18 and 19. The girls snatched an exciting win on Saturday in an overtime thriller against the Dickinson Lady Outlaws.
Both teams waited until the final period of the game to do anything offensively. Glasgow lit the scoreboard up for the first time with less than eight minutes remaining in the contest when Kylie Lagerquist, assisted by Zoey Crater and Brooklyn Schmidt, capitalized on a power play to score.
Proving that a game isn't over until it's over, the Lady Outlaws evened things up with just 2.4 seconds left on the game clock and sent the contest into overtime.
Glasgow finally brought the nail-biting extra period to an end when Mayme Collins found the back of the net, assisted by Crater, to clinch the win for her team with a final score of 2-1.
Crater served one penalty for the Ice Dawgs in the third period when she was called for tripping. In the net, Lizzie Nyquist had 25 saves.
In their second game of the weekend, the 14U girls faced the tough Watford City Oilers Sunday morning.
Glasgow shook up the Oilers by scoring the first goal of the game when Crater scored late in the first period with an assist from Shanice Lagerquist.
Watford City answered with three consecutive goals to finish the first period ahead of the Ice Dawgs 3-1.
The Lady Ice Dawgs dominated the second period to tie things up 3-3. K. Lagerquist scored assisted by Tatum Provencher and Collins, and Emma Cook found the back of the net with an unassisted goal of her own.
Although Glasgow carried their momentum into the third quarter and took the lead with an unassisted goal by K. Lagerquist, the Oilers quickly overcame the deficit by scoring four consecutive goals to win the game 7-4. In the net again, Nyquist stopped 23 shots.
Serving two-minute penalties for the Lady Ice Dawgs were Provencher for tripping and Crater for interference.
The season is winding down for the Ice Dawgs. They'll play Williston at home this Sunday, Feb. 25 at noon, then will have a few weeks before they head to Bismarck March 10, 11, and 12 for the NDAHA State Tournament.
