Stingrays Win Fourth Consecutive Melting Ice Pilots 4-3 In Overtime

By: Mike Kelly

PENSACOLA, Fla. – Brendan Bernakevitch scored his second goal of the game in overtime to give the South Carolina Stingrays a thrilling 4-3 win over the Pensacola Ice Pilots at the Pensacola Civic Center.

“I’m proud of the way we played,” South Carolina coach Jason Fitzsimmons said. “The guys believe in themselves. We have a lot of drive and determination and we have proven that we can fight through adversity. We’re getting rewarded for our hard work.”

Pensacola (1-8-1, 3 points) opened the score at 1:39 of the first period.
Jason Goulet scored on the Ice Pilots first shot of the game beating Davis Parley. Assists went to Brendan Cook and Rob Rankin.

South Carolina (7-3-0, 14 points) tied the score at 1-1, as Chris Chaput buried a shot from Marc Busenburg to tally his sixth of the season.
Jamie Fraser also garnered an assist at the 5:35 mark.

With 2:44 remaining in the first period a power failure delayed action for 20-minutes and as a result the teams were sent to their respective locker rooms.

When play resumed, Bernakevitch took a drop pass from
Jamie Fraser and posted his third goal of the year at 3:43 of the second period.

Fraser then made it 3-1 for South Carolina by netting his second of the night on a shot from the left circle that beat Mole between the pads at 12:41 of the middle stanza. Chaput and
Nate Kiser drew assists on the goal.

Dan Sullivan cut the lead to one by re-directing a Mario Joly shot from the blue line on the power play. Dallas Steward also had a helper on the goal.

In the dying seconds of the third, Pensacola had the extra attacker on the ice and Goulet tied the score with just four seconds left in regulation time.
Derek Krestanovich had the lone assist.

At the 3:00 mark of overtime, Bernakevitch took a pass from
Ryan Bennett and beat Mole in close to end the game in dramatic fashion for the Stingrays.

South Carolina was unable to convert on six power play chances, while Pensacola went 1-for-8 with the man advantage.
