After last night's game featured just one goal, offense was in higher supply Saturday as the Jimmies and Williston State College Tetons completed their weekend series at Wilson Arena.
Eric Buckley (FR/Penticton, British Columbia)'s power play goal with 1:32 left in the third period was the game-winner for Jamestown, which saw leads of 2-0 and 3-2 get away.
Brandon Kayter scored for Williston State to make the game 3-3 with 7:28 left to play.
The Tetons were whistled for too many men at 16:46 of the third, allowing the Jimmies to go on the power play. UJ converted with 18 seconds left on the man advantage, as Buckley found a loose puck and put it past Williston State goalie David Krejcik. Cole Zimmerman (FR/Lone Butte, British Columbia) and Brandon Schaber (FR/Kelowna, British Columbia) earned the assists.
Buckley had a hand in the first two Jimmie goals of the night, teaming with Cameron Todd (FR/Burraneer, Australia) to set up Jason Richter (FR/Cranbook, British Columbia) at 6:58 of the first. Todd then scored the first of two UJ power play goals at 13:13 from Buckley.
Williston State responded with two goals in the second, the first coming from Jacob Hepburn at 9:36, then a game-tying power play goal from Blake Zabinski at 18:33.
Jackson Fulton (FR/Kelowna, British Columbia) broke the tie 1:48 into the final period on assists from Zimmerman and Ned Simpson (FR/Kitchener, Ontario) before Kayter's tied the game at three just under 11 minutes later.
Tyson Brouwer (FR/Lethbridge, Alberta) made 25 saves in net while his counterpart Krejcik made 34 stops. UJ had a 38-28 edge in shots.
The game featured 27 minor penalties, with 13 going to Williston State and 14 to the Jimmies. Jamestown was 2 of 5 with the man advantage while the Tetons were 1 of 6.
UJ has a home-and-home series with Minot State next weekend to close out the season. The #1 ranked Beavers will be in Jamestown Friday, then the Jimmies travel to Minot Saturday. Friday is Miltary Appreciation Night, and all service members will be admitted to the game with their military ID.
