Overtime sinks Dawgs 4-3

KNOXVILLE, Tn. – Marcus Ortiz scored twice, the second of which tied the game at three and forced overtime, but the Knoxville Ice Bears scored in the extra session to beat the Rail Yard Dawgs, 4-3, Saturday night at the Knoxville Civic Coliseum.

With the Rail Yard Dawgs trailing, 3-2, and just under seven minutes to play in the third period, Austin Daae carried the puck to the slot. He steered a backhander on net that was stopped by Joe Murdaca but Ortiz muscled his way in for the rebound and flipped it into the net, tying the game at three.
