Lady Caps Fall In Double OT
The Oahe Lady Capitals fell in double overtime on Saturday afternoon to the Rushmore Thunder by a score of 3-2 in the consolation semi-final of the state hockey tournament.
The Lady Caps would tally the first two goals of the game in the second period. Destiny Barry would find Traci Corcoran for the first goal of the afternoon to make the score 1-0 Lady Caps. Four minutes later Caryn Brakke would score from the right point to increase the Lady Caps lead to 2-0. The Rushmore Thunder would answer three minutes later with the Caps still holding a 2-1 lead after the second period.
In the third period, the Lady Capitals were denied a 3-1 lead after the officials waved off a goal due to a player being in the crease. The disallowed goal allowed the Rushmore Thunder to tie the game with 8 minutes remaining. Neither the Lady Caps or Thunder found the back of the net the rest of third period or the first overtime session.
In the second overtime, the Thunder would score with 28 seconds remaining in the period on the odd man rush to advance to the consolation championship game on Sunday. Lady Capitals goaltender Madison Bogue stopped 22 of 25 shots as she logged nearly 71 minutes of ice time. The Oahe Lady Capitals will look for a 7th place finish at the state tournament against Mitchell at 8AM on Sunday. KCCR will have live coverage of the contest beginning at 7:45AM.
