Jarventie and Sogaard lead Belleville Sens past Bears

March 19, 2022

Roby Jarventie delivered the game-winner with 57 seconds left in overtime as the Belleville Senators defeated the Hershey Bears 3-2 on Friday night at CAA Arena. 

Belleville opened the scoring through defenceman Jonathan Aspirot who marked his return to the lineup after a four-game absence due to injury by blasting home his second season on the power play at 10:27 of the first period. Hershey forward Michael Sgarbossa tied the contest on the man advantage with 7:27 remaining in the frame. 

Early in the second period, Aliaksei Protas gave the Bears their first lead of the contest, 1:27, into the frame. The Senators evened the score just past the mid-way point of the stanza when Egor Sokolov connected on a pass from Jake Lucchini as once again the two-sides headed to the intermission tied.

A tightly contested third period saw the game head to extra time as neither team could pull ahead in regulation. After the Senators began overtime with a vital penalty kill, Belleville turned to rookie forward Jarventie, who scored the winner with a quick snapshot from the slot.

Head Coach Troy Mann on first star Mads Sogaard:

“I thought he was excellent; quite frankly, I thought both goalies played very well when the momentum shifted, whether it was for us or Hershey, both goalies were required to make some saves, and Sogaard was excellent in the overtime, obviously with the 4-on-3 power play, and even though Aspirot came out of the box, they had a couple looks there before he was able to freeze the puck.”

Goaltender Mads Sogaard:

“I didn’t feel that great at the beginning of the game. I think as the game went on, I worked my way towards it and got better and better and got plenty of support from the team overall real happy with the points.”
