Story Provided by Steve Besaw
The Canton Golden Bears moved to 12-2-1 on the season with a hard-fought 4-3 overtime win against the TI-ABay Islanders, on Wednesday night in Clayton. The game started roughly for the Bears, as they were forced to claw their way back from an early deficit after the Islanders took a 2-0 lead midway through period one.  Kyle Gionet got the ball rolling for the Islanders with an assist from Mike Wetterhahn at the 1:17 mark.  Then Gionet set up Riley Youngs for the Islanders’ second goal at 7:10 of the period.  The second goal seemed to wake Canton up, as the Bears would net their first goal of the contest at the 8:34 mark when Jake Mattice scooped up a loose puck at the top of the left face-off circle and wristed a shot past Islander goalie Noah Crandall to make it 2-1 after one period play. The second period saw a shift in momentum as Canton, after killing off the remainder of a short power play to start the period, began to attack the Islanders’ defensive zone.  Sticking to a grind-it-out game plan by dumping the puck deep at every opportunity, the Bears kept steady pressure with a strong forecheck.  The plan would eventually pay off with Sam Martin's first of two goals on the night at the 4:56 mark, assisted by Mark Mahoney, knotting the score at 2-2. Canton took the lead later in the second period when Josh Huiatt would net a wrister, on a feed from Cole Moore at the 12:00 mark.  The second period ended with Bears up 3-2. Canton continued to apply pressure throughout the third stanza, but it was TI-ABay that would do the only scoring in the period.  Dan Gionet ripped a shot from the high slot that went off Bears goalie Jerad Burchell's glove and into the net to tie the score.  Despite the Bears continuing to attack the Islander net, the game found its way into overtime tied at 3-3.  After outshooting the Islanders 4-0 through the first four minutes of overtime, the Bears eventually iced the game when Sam Martin pounced on a loose puck in the slot, following a shot by Isaac Thrasher and wrist it over a fallen Crandall for the 4-3 win. Jerad Burchell stopped 23 of 26 shots in net for the win for the Bears.  For the game, the Bears were 0 for 3 on the power play and were a perfect 3-for 3 on the penalty kill.  The Bears now have the weekend off before a grueling week where they play host to St. Lawrence Central, ranked #1 in the New York State Division II poll, on Monday night at 5:00 pm, followed by a Wednesday night showdown with Potsdam at the Canton Pavilion at 7:30 pm, and a huge Friday night tilt in Massena with the #5 ranked Red Raiders at 7:00 pm.
