Livonia Over AQ in OT

- NOTES: Livonia took the game into overtime to defeat Aquinas 5-4. The Bulldogs got their sixth win in the past ten years over the Little Irish (20 wins). Holding Aquinas to only four goals is the strongest defensive performance in the records. Livonia used two, two-goal runs to secure the win. One was in the first and one was in the third. The Little Irish scored three goals in the second quarter. Both teams were held scoreless in the fourth quarter.

Going into overtime, both teams had shots at the goal. Aquinas won the face off when Tyler Olbrich picked up the loose ball. They did not get a shot on goal before giving up the ball to the Bulldogs. Livonia took four shots in overtime (missing the first three). Reid Mattle took his fifth shot of the game as time expired in the first overtime period to score the game winning goal for Livonia. Livonia goalie John Stockslader finished with nine saves and Aquinas goalie Tony Deleo finished with three saves.

Livonia Head Coach Brett Wood says, "I give a lot of credit to our kids tonight especially our defensive effort. We never gave up and hung around to keep things close. Each team had two possessions and both coaches used a timeout in OT and with one second left Reid Mattle picked up the ball right in from of the goal for the game winner."
