The Power picked up four points on the weekend after winning in dramatic overtime fashion 3-2 Friday at Kettle Moraine Ice Center and holding on for a 2-1 victory in Tomah on Saturday.

Friday it was the visiting Woodsmen who got on the board first at the 10:42 mark when Tristan May-Robertson was able to get one past Power netminder Gavin Wohlmacher.  He was assisted by Viktor Budik and Hunter Nelson for the only scoring in the in period.  Max Mudge tied up the score at 2:58 of the second period, assisted by Jace Fitzgerald and Teagan Scheurer.  It stayed that way until there was just 2:24 to go in the game when the Woodsmen’s Hunter Nelson put the visitors on top off assists from Viktor Budik and Hugh Deninema.  In an exciting final minute of regulation with Wolhmacher pulled, Riley Planey was able to tie it up and send it to overtime with just 40 seconds remaining in the game.  He was assisted by Jace Fitzgerald and Max Mudge.  The 3-on-3 overtime went up and down the ice with both teams grinding hard, including a sprawled out body stick save by Zach Wolverton to keep the overtime alive, until 2:12 when Andrew Butler took the puck from Max Mudge and Cole Fenske to score and give the Power the overtime victory.  Gavin Wohlmacher saved 36 of 38 Woodsmen shots on the night.
