Wahlin OT Winner Completes Comeback Vs. Iowa

WICHITA, Kan. (Nov. 12) – Wichita mounted a late comeback on Saturday night, pulling out a 3-2 overtime victory over Iowa at INTRUST Bank Arena. 

Jake Wahlin scored just 16 seconds into the extra session to help the Thunder climb out of a 2-0 deficit for their third-straight overtime win. 

Jay Dickman and Michal Stinil recorded goals while Stefan Fournier and Billy Constantinou each had helpers. Evan Buitenhuis claimed his second-straight win, stopping 30 shots. 

After a scoreless first, Tommy Parrottino put the Heartlanders on the board at 10:58 of the second. He redirected a pass from Michael Pastujov and beat Buitenhuis to make it 1-0. 

At 17:23, Cole Stallard stole a puck behind the Wichita net and tucked home a shot to make it 2-0. 

Stinil cut the lead to one in the third with a power play tally. Wichita moved the puck around the perimeter. He unloaded a shot from the left circle to beat Hunter Jones for his first of the season.

Buitenhuis was lifted for the extra attacker with over a minute left in regulation. The Thunder pulled even at 18:59 when Dickman found a loose puck near the edge of the right circle and beat Jones to tie the game. 

Just 16 seconds into overtime, Wahlin received a pass from Timur Ibragimov at the right circle and tallied his second of the season.
