Dimond skaters sneak past Service in OT

Anchorage Daily NewsJanuary 22, 2014 

Walker Hamilton’s power-play strike in overtime snuffed Service’s comeback and delivered Dimond’s 3-2 Cook Inlet Conference boys hockey victory Wednesday night at Ben Boeke Arena.

The league-leading Lynx improved to 11-0 in conference. Spencer Penman and Brandon Sakumoto assisted on Hamilton’s game-winner.

Dimond raced to a 2-0 first-period lead on goals from Tyler Dunn and Sakumoto, with Sakumoto’s power-play marker coming just nine seconds before intermission.

After that, though, Service goaltender Angus Klancher made 26 saves from the second period on — until Hamilton’s goal, of course — and that stinginess permitted the Cougars (4-7 CIC) to stage a comeback. Service received a second-period, power-play goal from Blaine Sharrock and forged a 2-2 tie on Michael Stephens’ goal roughly midway throught the third period.

Dimond goaltender Ashton Good stopped 24 shots. Klancher made 37 saves.
