CLOQUET — Joe Cesario struck in overtime on Friday, Sept. 30 as the Minnesota Wilderness marked their return from a two-week break with a 3-2 North American Hockey League victory over the Anchorage Wolverines.

Beau Janzig (Hermantown) scored his first goal for the Wilderness to tie the game with 4:34 to play. Cesario's fifth goal of the season came from Ren Morque's (Grand Rapids) eighth assist.

Reid Daavettila had a first-period goal for Minnesota (3-3-1), which got 22 saves from goaltender Isak Posch.

The teams will meet again Saturday in the second game of a three-game series at Northwoods Credit Union Arena.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
