My Demonz Post-Game Recap from October 18th, 2014

Demonz Rally with a 4-3 OT Win Over Danville


By Lee W. Mowen

DAYTON, OH. – The Dayton Demonz come away with two wins on

Opening Weekend against the Danville Dashers, winning just

mere seconds into the overtime frame 4-3 on Saturday Night.

Dayton started off more aggressive, moving the puck forward

and creating chances against Danville’s goalie Matt

Anthony. Danville would not back down, as they also counted

with some smart looks on Curtis Martinu. The Demonz and

Dashers went back to the locker rooms scoreless after one.

At the 3:08 mark of the 2nd period, it was Jared Hicks

recording his first goal of the young season, with some help

from the starting line of Ahmed Mahfouz and Roger Tagoona.

However, Danville answered back, twenty-four seconds later

in fact. Andrew Harrison notched his first of the year, with

Justin Levac and former Demon Jonathan Juliano helping the

Dasher cause.

Danville struck again for their first lead of the season,

with Gehrett Sargis scoring his 2nd of the road trip at the

13:46 mark. J.D. Gordon was the lone assister in the Sargis

score. In the later moments of the middle frame, Robert

Vanwynsberghe scored his first goal, unassisted. Two periods

in, fans had a 2-2 barnburner on their hands.

Jared Hicks scored his second goal of the night very

quickly, just forty-three seconds in and with some help from

Mahfouz. This lead for Dayton looked to stay, as the

Danville Dashers failed to convert on a four-minute double

minor to Tagoona. However, it was Brad Denney tying the

match up again at the 17:39 mark. Denney’s first goal was

assisted by John Scully and Nicola Levesque. Sixty minutes

weren’t enough to settle the score, we would need overtime


The Demonz started off the OT frame right, winning the

faceoff and controlling the puck. As Ahmed Mahfouz took the

puck to the slot, he would not be denied and sent the

hometown fans back home happy with a 4-3 OT win, 16 seconds

erased from the Hara Arena scoreboard.

Robert Vanwynsberghe was the third star of the game, with

one goal. Ahmed Mahfouz was the second star, with a goal and

two assists. Taking the number one star of the game, was

Jared Hicks with his two goal performance. Curtis Martinu

picks up the win in his first ever start with Dayton,

recording 30 saves. Matt Anthony suffered the loss,

recording 29 saves on the contest.
