Tartan came on strong near the end of the second period and into the third period to beat the Red Wing boys hockey team 8-5 Tuesday in Oakdale.
Jake Jackson took control of the game for the Titans during that time and scored all four of his goals from the later half of the second period to the early part of the third period to give Tartan a 7-4 advantage after it trailed 4-3 in the second period.
“Again, one of those growing games where we had to fight through some adversity,” Wingers head coach Mike Belisle said. “I think our biggest nemesis tonight was we probably gave up three, if not four really soft five-on-five goals. We’re better than that, there’s no question about that.”
The game went back and forth throughout. The Wingers got a goal from Marcus Noesen in the first period to take a 1-0 lead and the Titans tied it up with 4 minutes, 23 seconds left in the period.
Red Wing and Tartan traded goals in the second period as Jack Strusz, Taylor Hanson and Alex Rezansoff all scored. Rezansoff’s goal with 10:55 left in the period put the Wingers up 4-3, but that lead didn’t last long.
Jackson struck from his first goal a little more than a minute later and then added another with 3:12 left in the second to give the Titans their first lead of the game.
Jackson made sure the lead help with a pair of goals to start the third period. Hanson scored again to make it 7-5 but Eric Olheiser scored for Tartan for the 8-5 final.
The Wingers outshot the Titans 39 to 34.
