AUSTIN, Minn. – Three separate Bruins registered multiple-point nights and Frank Dovorany sealed the win in overtime as the Bruins beat the Janesville Jets 5-4 on Sunday.
Despite falling down two goals in the first period, the Bruins never gave-in. A little over twelve minutes into the opening frame, Alex Trombley found Travis Shoudy in the high slot who fired a shot over Janesville netminder Riley Sims to cut the lead in half, 2-1. Janesville managed to add one more in the opening period and the Bruins found themselves in a 3-1 hole heading into the first intermission.
In the second period, Austin began their first climb up the mountain, managing to tie the game with back-to-back goals. Eleven and a half minutes into the middle period, Peter Jacobs scored his fourth goal of the season, his third against Janesville on the weekend, to get Austin back within one, 3-2. Less than five minutes later, Hunter Olson worked his way into the offensive zone and muscled a shot past Sims to even things at 3-3. Despite owning the momentum, the Bruins surrendered a goal to Janeville’s Jake Sacratini, and much like the end of the first period, the Bruins found themselves heading to the locker room down, 4-3.
Out of the gate in the third, the Bruins weren’t able to register their first shot on goal until the ten-minute mark, but in the final two minutes, with the goalie pulled, Austin evened the game. Kyle Oleksiuk fielded a pass at the center point and snapped a wrister toward the net. The shot ricocheted off a skate and landed on the tape of Barrett Brooks who slid a shot between the legs of Sims and forced overtime.
It was in the overtime where the Bruins showed poise and control. With time winding down, after getting numerous chances already, the Trombley walked into the zone along the right-wing boards. The forward turned on the jets and cut to the net getting a shot off the pads of Sims and leaving a juicy rebound. Smartly, Bruins defenseman Frank Dovorany followed up the play and pounded home the rebound, earning the victory for the Bruins 5-4.
Along with Trombley who had three assists, Dovorany and Brooks each recorded multiple-point nights. Dovorany logged a goal and an assist while Brooks notched a goal and an assist. Tyler Shea earned the victory in net for the Bruins stopping 34 of 38 shots from the Jets while Riley Sims was saddled with the loss. The Bruins improved to 3-1-1-0 on the season after the win and won two games of their 3-in-3.
