FAIRBANKS, Alaska - The Alaska Nanook hockey team was able to earn a much-needed victory on the road on Saturday night down in Bemidji Minnesota.
The Nooks defeated the Bemidji State Beavers 2-1 in overtime.
The Nanooks drew first blood with a goal 7 minutes and 44 seconds into the game.
They held that lead for the vast majority of the contest, but the Beavers were able to force overtime, finding the back of the net with a little more than two minutes left in regulation.
The overtime period began and then quickly ended when Justin Young lit the lamp less than a minute into the extra time, securing an extremely clutch first goal of the year.
Ryker Leer accounted for the other Nanook goal while Steven Jandric, James LaDouce, and Troy Van Tetering provided the assists.
Anton Martinsson earned the win in goal, stopping 29 shots in 65 minutes between the Pipes.
The Nooks are still in seventh place in the WCHA, now sitting at 5-15-2 overall and 5-10-1-1 in the conference.
