VANCOUVER, Wash. — The Tahoe Icemen hockey team delivered its first sweep of the season on the road Nov. 4-6, and did so in dramatic fashion. The Icemen produced three overtime victories over the Seattle Totems in a WSHL Northwest Division series at Mountain View Ice Arena — for the club’s first three-game sweep in two seasons.

Tahoe took the series opener 5-4 in double overtime on Friday, Nov. 4, on a game-winning goal from forward Artem Verbenko. The Icemen forced overtime after forward Samuel Stewart scored with 40 seconds left in regulation, and prevailed after a scoreless first overtime period.

In a back and forth contest Saturday, Nov. 5, the Icemen delivered a second straight double overtime win. Forward Ivan Radetskyi netted the game winner with 3:34 left in the fifth period — his second of the game — as Tahoe won by a 5-4 margin.

The Icemen completed the sweep Sunday, Nov. 6, with a 4-3 victory in overtime. Tahoe scored the first three goals of the game before Seattle answered with three of its own — with 2:11 left in overtime, defender and Stateline native Jackson Oleson scored on the power play to secure victory for the visitors.

In the three-game series, Tahoe’s Ukrainian duo of Radetskyi and Verbenko each tallied five goals and one assist. Defenseman Phil Heisse recorded a team-high seven assists for the Icemen.

Tahoe (6-9) moved into fourth place in the Northwest Division standings after the sweep. The Icemen return to action this weekend at Vancouver, with a three-game series starting Friday, Nov. 11.
