Mils drop OT decision to the Hounds in Midale


The Melville Millionaires lost their 6th overtime game of the season on Monday night, 4-3 to the Notre Dame Hounds in Midale. 

The Hounds got on the board first just over 4 minutes in, when Antonie Saint-Onge pounced on a rebound for his 1st as a Hound to make it 1-0.

Then just over 6 minutes later, Kevin Anderson walked in and went top-shelf on Alexis Giroux for his 11th of the season to give the home-side an early 2 goal lead. 

But late in the 1st, the Mills cut their deficit in half as Ryland Maier sent it on net and it went off a leg and in for his 1st SJHL goal to make it a 2-1 ND after 20 minutes.

The Moneymen got off a quick start in the 2nd as just 37 seconds in, Jake Spak banged him his fourth to tie it up before Zach Cain finished off a nice passing play for his 8th to give the Mills their first lead.

But just 73 seconds later, Kevin Anderson got the equalizer for his 2nd of the night to make it a 3-3 game through 2 periods. 

After a scoreless third, it would be the Hounds getting the OT winner as Oliver Bend finished off a nice drive play to give his team the extra point.

Ryley Osland made 34 saves for the Hounds in the win while Mils' G Alexis Giroux turned aside 31 Hound shots in the losing cause.
