Anchorage, Alaska | 2/24/23 | Isaac Smoldon
The Anchorage Wolverines picked up a single point in the Midwest division standings on Friday night, but were unable to beat the Fairbanks Ice Dogs in a competitive bout that ended 4-3 in the Ice Dog’s favor. Shane Soderwall made 29 saves for Anchorage in the game, while Revy Mack led the team in scoring thanks to a two-point game.
Mack was the lone goal scorer in the 1st period, putting the Wolverines up by one late in the frame. The middle period was a back-and-forth affair, with both teams scoring two goals apiece. Fairbanks tied the game before Mack scored his second of the night halfway through the 2nd, and Aiden Westin would respond for Anchorage following the next Ice Dogs goal to keep the Wolverines in the lead after two. Fairbanks would tie the game at three goals apiece just 50 seconds into the final frame however, and score the game winner at the 4:12 mark of OT.
Anchorage still is just one point out of a playoff spot following the loss, and remains on top of the Club 49 Cup race with 24 points to the Ice Dogs 17. The Wolverines and Fairbanks will play once more this weekend, Saturday at 7:30 p.m. AKST. The game is available to watch exclusively on HockeyTV.
