CORPUS CHRISTI, TX - Saturday night may not have been as easy for the Corpus Christi IceRays, however, Rudy Sulmonte provided the goal they needed in overtime to cap off a sweep of the Kenai River Brown Bears 3-2 inside the American Bank Center.
Perry D'Arrisso kick started the scoring on the power-play just 4:22 into the game from behind the goal line as he banked the puck off the back of goaltender Sean Healy for a 1-0 IceRays lead.
In the second period, Dylan Meier knotted the game at a goal apiece. After an interception, Meier wristed a shot past goalie Ben Myers to even the score 1-1.
The Brown Bears took the first lead of the weekend off the stick of Alex Jackstadt with 3:46 to go in the second. After a pile up in front of the net, Jackstadt found the loose puck and beat Myers for the lead.
That lead didn't last long when Charles Baldwin put on the boosters going right around the defender and finding a seam through the pads of Healy just 21 seconds after.
No scoring in the third period forced overtime.
Rudy Sulmonte capped off the victory only 25 seconds into overtime ripping a shot top shelf for the 3-2 win.
Ben Myers stopped 32 of 34 shots in the victory.
The IceRays are on the road next Saturday night and Sunday afternoon as they take on the Amarillo Bulls. Puck drops at 7:00PM, coverage begins at 6:45PM with the IceRays Pregame Show on 91.1FM KSGR.
