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.
