Nov 20, 2014 12:37 AM
Max Goen scored the shootout winner Friday and the #14 ranked Matadors tied #13 Long Beach State 4-4 officially but picked up an extra point in the WCHC standings.
After a scoreless first period a problem with the glass forced the game to be moved to the olympic sheet at the Iceoplex. Long Beach took advantage and scored three times in the second.
In the third the Matadors started their comeback on a power play goal from Andrew Monesi. Max Goen and Branden Casillas went in on a 2-on-1 a little over a minute later. Goen's first shot was stopped by Corey Jones but Casillas fired home the rebound. Elan Dunaev scored his hat trick goal to increase the Long Beach lead to 4-2. Goen then scored to narrow the gap to one again. Monesi evened the score at 6:17.
In overtime the Matadors had to kill off a full two minute penalty to Eric Roberts. Long Beach then took a too many men on the ice penalty with ten seconds left but the Matadors didn't get a great scoring chance.
In the shootout Alex Reints scored first and then Zac Zomaya tied the score. In the second round Monesi scored but Ian Hoang was stopped by the left leg of Kevin Noonan. Goen won the game with the next shot.
Matt Jolliff and Dunaev with two goals opened the scoring for Long Beach in the second.
