Sartell-St. Stephen, ranked No. 9 in the Class 1A state coaches' poll, rallied from two goals down to beat Minneapolis 4-3 in overtime Thursday at the Parade Ice Garden in Minneapolis.
The Sabres (13-5-0, 6-2-0) got a game-winning goal from senior forward Jack Henneman with 36.3 seconds left in overtime. Henneman bounced back from a slow start where his first-period penalty led to a power-play goal by Minneapolis sophomore forward Francis Lindgren.
Minneapolis (7-10-3, 1-1-0) couldn’t sustain the two-goal lead it built in the first period.
Sartell-St. Stephen scored twice in the first period to make it 3-2 before tying the game 3-3 in the third. Sabres senior forward Nick Plautz scored the third goal to force overtime.
