COLUMBUS, OHIO – The Miami RedHawks turned the tables on Ohio State by scoring the tying goal with 13 seconds left and adding the game-winning goal 1:03 into overtime to shock the Buckeyes by a final score of 4-3.

%^$It was on November 20 that Ohio State defeated Miami with the exact same formula. In that game, Ohio State trailed, 1-0, with five seconds remaining in the game when a goal by Ryan Jestadt (Jr., Western Spring, Ill.) tied it up. The Buckeyes eventually won the game in overtime, 2-1.

%^$In this game, Andre Signoretti (So., Manotick, Ontario) got the Buckeyes on the board in the first period when he scored a shorthanded goal. The goal was Signoretti’s third of the season.

%^$Things got exciting late in the second period when RedHawk defenseman Josh Harrold was whistled for freezing the puck in the crease, meaning that Ohio State would be given a penalty shot. The Buckeyes’ Hugo Boisvert (Jr., St. Eustache, Quebec) did the honors and came up big, sliding the puck past Miami goalie Andy Marsch to give OSU a 2-0 lead.

%^$MU’s power play allowed them to tie it up in the third period. Just over six minutes into the period, Ernie Hartlieb scored a power-play goal to make it 2-1. Six minutes later, the RedHawks tied it up at 2-2 by again scoring on the man advantage.

%^$Ohio State bounced back, however. Boisvert’s second goal of the game with 2:04 remaining in the third period gave the Buckeyes a 3-2 advantage.

%^$But that was the last piece of good news for Ohio State. Miami pulled their goalie with just under a minute left, a move that paid off when Josh Mizerek scored to tie the game with 13 seconds left. Mizerek has always saved his best games for the RedHawks’ in-state rival. He came into the game Miami’s leading scorer against OSU. The goal that tied the game was his first of the season.

%^$The two teams went into overtime, which ended after one minute when Mark Shalawylo scored the game clinching goal.

%^$Ohio State continues on the road later this week when they travel to Ithaca, New York, for non-conference action against Cornell University on Friday. The road trip ends Sunday with another non-conference matchup with Colgate. OSU returns home on January 21 against Ferris State.%^$
