DAWGS TAKE OUT ICE FLYERS IN SHOOTOUT, 4-3

PENSACOLA – Mac Jansen’s third period goal forced overtime and Jeff Jones scored twice in the shootout as the Rail Yard Dawgs came from behind and beat the Pensacola Ice Flyers, 4-3, Friday night at the Pensacola Bay Center. Jacob Caffrey made 34 saves and stopped six in the shootout to earn the win in net.

With the Dawgs trailing, 3-2, in the third period, Alex Adams took a slap shot from the point. It was redirected in front of the net by Jansen and skipped between the legs of Brian Billett, tying the game at three.

The score remained tied through the remainder of regulation and the two teams moved into overtime. Pensacola registered four shots in the frame, all of which were turned aside by Caffrey. Roanoke had a chance in the final seconds but Colin Murray’s pass skipped off the stick of Cam Owens and the horn sounded, pushing the two teams to a shootout.
