ALLEN, TX (May 2) - Spencer Asuchak scored a pair of goals, including the game-winner early in overtime to help Allen knock off Wichita on Sunday afternoon by the final score of 4-3 at the Allen Event Center.
Anthony Beauregard and Jay Dickman each had a goal and an assist and Dean Stewart had two helpers.
Collin Shirley got things started early in the first. He drove up the right wing and beat Hayden Lavigne over the shoulder with a backhand to make it 1-0. Beauregard tallied his 22nd of the year at 12:40 to tie the game at one. He found a rebound near the net and buried it on the power play. Asuchak tallied his first of two at 14:52 to regain the lead for the Americans. He redirected a shot from Brett Neumann on the man advantage to make it 2-1.
In the second, Dickman caught a pass across the slot at 5:54 and beat Jake Paterson to tie the game at two.

In overtime, Wichita was assessed a questionable too many men on the ice penalty. Asuchak made the Thunder pay with his second of the game at 2:13 as he tipped home a shot from Matt Register to win the game.
Wichita netted two more play goals against Allen, which is the third time this season the Thunder have two or more in a game on the man advantage. Allen went 3-for-7 on the power play.
Stewart extended his point-streak to 10 games. Beauregard has goals in three of the last four and points in seven-straight.
