Junior hockey: Docter, Wilderness top Minotauros in overtime
Both goalies play well before teams break through for goals in the third period.
Grant Docter’s goal 4:05 into overtime lifted the Minnesota Wilderness to a 2-1 victory over the Minot Minotauros in a North American Hockey League game Saturday night before 650 at Northwoods Arena in Cloquet.
After two scoreless periods, Blaine Warnert’s goal at 4:11 in the third period gave the Minotauros a brief 1-0 lead before Jacob Herter of Hermantown knotted it up 1-1 at 9:49 in the period with an unassisted goal.
That set the stage for Docter, who scored on assists by Christian Galatz and Mikol Sartor.
Jacob Zacharewicz had 20 saves for the Wilderness while Carter Clafton had 29 saves for the Minotauros.
