Third period rally carries Ice Wolves past Bantam T-Birds

By Jim den Hollander


Baraboo T-Birds bantams made the trip to Dodgeville Jan. 17 and dropped a 9-4 decision to the host Ice Wolves at Harris Park Ice Arena.

The Wolves scored two goals, 20-seconds apart just past the halfway mark of the opening period and carried the 2-0 cushion into the middle frame.

T-Birds got on the board with a Jordi Beale marker, set up by Colin Mattson 3:51 from the end of the second. Dodgeville restored the two-goal cushion with under 30 seconds to play in the frame, but Beale notched another with just over 10 ticks on the clock from Nathan Gneiser and Reese Olson.

An avalanche of third period goals included one from Gneiser and the other from Thomas Sarnow with helpers for Beale, Olson and Wyatt Jost.

Brayden Goyett-Fuller turned in a 24-save effort in goal for the T-Birds who fired 34 against the Wolves’ goaltender.

The loss snapped a three-game winning streak for the T-Birds and leaves them at 9-8 on the season so far.
