Game Recap

Johnson, Exter Lead Warriors In 3-3 Tie With Mavericks

Friday, November 29, 2002

Omaha, Nebr. -- Matt Johnson scored a pair of goals and Brent Gough assisted on both as Merrimack (3-5-3) skated to a 3-3 tie with Nebraska-Omaha (4-7-2). Brendon Clark also scored for the Warriors and Joe Exter made 34 saves in front of 8,314 at the Omaha Civic Auditorium.

Johnson started things 3:15 into the game with a power play goal. Gough took the puck down the left boards on a 2-on-1, feeding Johnson in front and the freshman finished for his second collegiate goal.

The Warriors upped their lead to two goals 58 seconds into the second period. From the right point, defenseman Bryan Schmidt fed Gough at the left circle and he whipped the puck to Johnson in the slot. Johnson then wristed it past UNO goaltender Dan Ellis for his second of the game.

UNO responded with a pair of unanswered goals, the first coming at the 7:20 mark. After Dan Hacker's initial shot bounced off the chest of Exter, the sophomore put back his own rebound for his first goal of the year. Josh Weeks evened the score at 2-2, finishing from in front of the net at the 18:28 mark for his first of the year.

The Warriors regained the lead at the 4:31 mark of the third period. Tony Johnson fed Clark as he skated up the right wing. From the top of the right circle, Clark blasted one past Ellis high on his glove side. UNO tied it up again at 8:18 of the period with its second power play goal of the game.

Forty-three seconds into the power play, David Brisson threw the puck toward the net from the blue line and it found its way through the pads of Exter.

The teams skated through a scoreless five minute overtime, with Merrimack outshooting UNO, 6-3.

The teams meet again Saturday night in Omaha. Game time is 8:05 p.m. Eastern time.
