Game Recap

Ferguson stellar in Belleville Sens debut win

February 26, 2023

Dylan Ferguson made 38 saves and Cole Reinhardt delivered a decisive game-winner in overtime as the Belleville Senators defeated the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins 2-1 on Saturday night at Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza.

Following an excellent end-to-end rush from defenceman Lassi Thomson, Belleville opened the scoring with 2:42 remaining in the first period when Roby Jarventie capitalized on a rebound to give the Senators a 1-0 advantage heading into the intermission.

After a scoreless middle stanza, a late Wilkes-Barre/Scranton push would force extra time as Tyler Sikura equalized on a wrap-around attempt with an extra attacker on the ice at the 17:52 mark of the frame.

In overtime, Reinhardt found the back of the net with his seventh of the campaign helping the Senators secure a crucial road victory.

Belleville returns to action tomorrow afternoon when they visit the Hershey Bears, with puck drop scheduled for 3:00 p.m from Giant Center.
