PHN’s Best Shots of the Game: Missouri Mavericks @ Fort Worth Brahmas 02/22/13 Perrin's OT score give Mavericks 2-1 win over Brahmas

PHN_BSOGNORTH RICHLAND HILLS, Texas – Defenseman Jesse Perrin scored just 11 seconds into overtime to give the Missouri Mavericks a 2-1 win over the Fort Worth Brahmas Friday night at NYTEX Sports Center.

Perrin finished with two points on one goal and one assist and Mavericks’ goaltender Mike Clemente stopped 26 of 27 shots for his league-leading 20th win of the season. Forward Colt King scored Missouri’s first goal and it marked his fourth straight game with a goal and fifth goal in those four games.

“Incredible team win tonight,” Mavericks’ Head Coach Scott Hillman said. “We just wore them down by the end of the game, and we played a great defensive hockey game.”

Fort Worth scored their only goal of the game in the first period on an unassisted goal by Shawn Szydlowski at the 10:05 mark. The Brahmas held a 13-8 lead in shots after one period as well.

Missouri turned it on in the second period and King was the recipient of a nice pass by Trevor Kell. King blasted his shot past Brahmas’ goaltender Brad Fogal at the 6:13 mark of the second period and the teams were tied, 1-1.

The game remained tied until 11 seconds into the overtime when Perrin scored his second goal of the season and sent the visiting team home with a win. Perrin was assisted by Brandon Smith and Sebastien Thinel, and the Mavericks improved to 2-1-0 against the Brahmas this season.

Neither team was able to score on the power play with the Mavericks going 0-for-5 and Fort Worth 0-for-4. Missouri finished with 29 shots compared to 27 for the Brahmas.
