Black Bears Sneak Past Sea Wolves in OT
Binghamton, NY – The (0-0-1) Mississippi Sea Wolves collected a point in their Federal Prospects Hockey League debut Friday night after a 4-3 overtime loss to the (3-0-0) Binghamton Black Bears.
Vinnie Susi scored the first Sea Wolves goal at 17:50 of the first period on an assist from Chris Leveille. The power play goal pushed Mississippi out in front 1-0.
In the second period, the lead was doubled to 2-0 courtesy of Denys Honcharenko (7:59) on a backhand shot from the crease. Leveille earned his second point of the night on the rush.
The Black Bears responded with a pair of goals just 1:15 apart between Tyler Gjurich and Geno DeAngelo to tie the game at two apiece. Gjurich’s tally came on a 5-on-3 man-advantage while DeAngelo struck during even strength.
Chris Hunt’s centering feed from Yaroslav Yevdokimov gave the Sea Wolves back the lead 2:34 into the third period. The Sea Wolves were unable to hang onto the edge as Austin Thompson scored point-blank on Mississippi goaltender Blake Weyrick with four minutes remaining in the game.
In overtime, Thompson proved to be the hero of the night after burying a pass behind the net off the stick of Cameron Yarwood for a 4-3 Binghamton victory. The Sea Wolves and Black Bears will meet again to close out the two-game series on Saturday, Oct. 22. Puck drop is scheduled for 6:00pm Central Time at Visions Veterans Memorial Arena and the action will be available for viewing on the Mississippi Sea Wolves YouTube channel.
