The Melville Millionaires earned their 8th win of the season on Wednesday night as they came back to beat the Humboldt Broncos 3-2 in overtime.
After the scoreless 1st period, the Broncos would get on the board half way through the middle frame as Logan Schatz would pick up a loose puck after a broken play and slide it across to Logan Hunter who would one-time home his team-leading 10th goal of the season to give the home side a 1-0 after 40 minutes.
The Mils would even things up just a dozen seconds into the 3rd period as rookie defenceman Daniel Liberty would walk across the blue-line and let one go that would find its way through goaltender Jacob Wasserman for the Edmonton product’s 3rd of the year to make it 1-1. But just over 3 mins later, the Broncos would regain their lead as Mathieu Gomeric with a nice drive play would back-hand it home over the left pad of Colby Entz to make it 2-1 Broncos. The Mils would once again respond though, as Issac Embree on a 2 on 1 would elect to shoot and he would sneak it five-hole for his 6th of the season to tie it up at 2-2 and send it to overtime.
In the overtime, for the 2nd time this season Cory Schillo (pictured above) would be the hero. The Kasson, Minnesota product would sneak it through the legs of Broncos defenceman Bryce Fiske and then go top shelf on Wasserman for his 6th goal of the campaign to give the Mils the 2 points.
Churchbridge product Colby Entz made 27 saves for the Mils to earn his 6th win of the year while Jacob Wasserman made 22 saves in the losing cause.
