MARINERS RALLY TO STUN RAILERS IN OVERTIME

WORCESTER, MA – February 9, 2024 – Down 4-1 with just under 13 minutes left in regulation, the Maine Mariners made an improbable comeback and defeated the Worcester Railers 5-4 in overtime on Friday night at DCU Center. Wyllum Deveaux scored the final two goals of the third period to force OT and Ryan Mast netted the game-winner.

The comeback began midway through third period as the Railers led 4-1 after an early goal by Riley Piercey gave them a seemingly comfortable lead. At 7:06, Maine’s William Provost ripped a shot into a vacated net from the right circle after Railers goaltender John Muse collided with Tyler Drevitch just outside his goal crease. Still down two, Ethan Ritchie sent Wyllum Deveaux in on a breakaway at 15:39, and Deveaux beat Muse with a wrister to bring Maine within a goal. Deveaux’s heroics weren’t finished as he then netted the equalizer with 1:19 left and the Mariners net empty. Brooklyn Kalmikov found him in slot and he slid home the game-tying goal to force overtime.

The sudden death session was hectic, with both teams generating good chances. At 3:08, Mariners defenseman Ryan Mast broke in alone and after Muse stopped his initial bid, cleaned up the rebound to complete the comeback. It was Mast’s fourth goal of the season, giving him goals in back-to-back games.

The Railers built a 3-1 lead through 40 minutes with a pair of goals in the first from Jake Pivonka and Ashton Calder, and a second period tally from Anthony Callin. Alex Kile scored a shorthanded goal in the first to briefly tie the game at one, but Calder's power play goal answered it just 1:02 later.

In goal, Kyle Keyser made 34 saves to earn his 3rd win of the season, making several crucial saves early in the 2nd period. Muse stopped 19 of 24 in defeat. The Mariners claimed a 3-2 lead in the VIP Rivalry Cup with five games remaining.
