two evenly contested games that saw the final result take place after
regulation both nights.
On Friday, November 6th, the Tigers jumped out to an early 2-0 lead in the
first period. It wasn't until late in the first period that the Rebels got
on the scoreboard with a shorthanded goal scored by William Hagerman
assisted by Jon Tietjen with 1:49 left to play in the period. This momentum
catapulted the Rebels offense in to the second period. Ole Miss went on to
score three more unanswered goals by Taylor Casey, William Hagerman, and
Cody Johnson in the second period before heading in to the intermission with
a 4-2 lead. In the third period the Rebel's momentum and offense fizzled as
they were only able to attain five shots on goal. This lack of offensive
production opened the door for LSU to come back late in the third period
with the equalizing goal scored with only 3:42 to play in regulation. In
overtime, the Rebel's offensive woes continued as they only garnered two
shots in the extra five minutes, allowing the Tigers to take advantage.
With 1:54 left in overtime Brandon Holy of LSU sealed the deal to give LSU a
5-4 overtime victory over the Rebels.
Saturday, November 7th, saw the Rebels again stumble out of the gate
succumbing to a 1-0 deficit early in the first period. However, after only
trailing for 1:26 Colin Knight got the Rebels offense started with a blast
from beyond the blue line that was followed up later in the period by a goal
from Raynor Clifton. Quickly thereafter, LSU came back to tie the game at
two heading in to the first intermission. The second period again saw both
teams trading the lead as the Rebels started the scoring with a goal from
Taylor Casey before surrendering the lead to two LSU goals scored within
twenty seconds of one another. Cody Johnson scored with 1:53 left in the
second period to tie the game at four before the intermission. The Rebels
were quick to regain the lead in the third period as Pat Schnurr scored
early in the third period. However, the Rebel defense was unable to close
the door in the third period as LSU again scored late to force a second
straight overtime in as many days. Overtime again saw the Rebel offense
sputter as they only managed one shot in the extra time. Rebel goaltender,
Sean Eaton, played a clutch role in overtime stopping six LSU shots to help
Ole Miss send the game to a shootout. Ole Miss was unable to capitalize in
the shootout after Eaton helped the Rebels force two extra shooters as LSU
Tiger captain Mike Mayeux scored the deciding goal in the second extra round
of the shootout to give LSU a 6-5 victory.
