The St. Charles Chill held Wichita to just 23 shots and Steve Makway snapped a wrist shot past Thunder goalie Taylor Nelson at the 3:22 mark of overtime to send the Chill to their second win of the season by a final of 2-1.
After a scoreless first period, Wichita (1-4-2) took a 1-0 lead in the first three minutes of the second on Matt Robinson’s fourth goal of the season but the Chill (2-4-1) tied the game quickly. Jordan Fox buried a one-timer after a cross-crease pass from Kyle Kraemer less than four minutes later to even the scored at one apiece.
Chill keeper Robby Moss pitched in with some timely saves but it was the defense that was impressive, keeping shots from getting to the net and controlling the action for most of the night leading to 45-23 advantage in shots for St. Charles.
