Huskies Win Four Overtime Thriller

Parker Thomas' goal 6:11 into the 4th overtime period lifted the #2 ranked Saskatchewan Huskies over the #7 Carleton Ravens by a 3-2 score in the longest game in University Cup history this afternoon/evening in Halifax.

Levi Cable (12:40 into the 1st period) and Kohl Bauml (5:58 of the 2nd) had the other goals for Saskatchewan, who never trailed in the game. Brent Norris (2:11 into the 2nd period) and Brett Welychka (15:20 of the 2nd) replied for the Ravens.

Jordon Cooke showed why he was named the CIS Goaltender of the Year by making 59 saves. Patrick Kileen was the hard luck loser despite stopping an amazing 68 shots.

The Huskies will now advance to Saturday's 12PM semi-final where they will meet the winner of the upcoming St. FX/Alberta game, which will begin in an hour.
