WILLISTON -- Every time the Dickinson boys hockey team tried to gain the lead, Williston had an answer.

The Midgets had a goal to open scoring in both of the first two periods, but allowed Williston to respond both times as the two times battled to a 2-2 overtime tie on Saturday.

"The first three periods were awesome," Dickinson co-coach Dave Hanneman said. "Overtime was hideous."

After neither team scored in the third period, the Midgets wasted two golden opportunities to win the game in overtime. According to Hanneman, not scoring on a pair of power-play opportunities wasn't the most embarrassing part.

"We didn't get any shots off (on the power play)," Hanneman said. "We kept giving them the puck. We weren't talking. There was no communication. (Goalie) Grant (Kovacs) made a couple of big saves in overtime and got us the tie."

Dickinson forwards Kevin Burke and Cole Frenzel each scored a goal. Kovacs finished with 37 saves.
