Windsor - October 14, 2012 - Steven Shipley scored the shootout winner, as the Niagara IceDogs escaped the WFCU Centre with a 4-3 victory Sunday afternoon.

Kerby Rychel (4, 5) scored a pair of goals and added an assist, while Josh Ho-Sang scored for the second consecutive game for Windsor (4-3-0-3).

Rychel's first at 3:07 of the second period tied the game at 1-1. His second gave the Spits the lead less than four minutes later.

The second period ended 3-2 Windsor, after Ho-Sang and Trevor Peterson exchanged goals in a 16-second span.

Held off the scoresheet for the first 52 minutes, Niagara star centre Ryan Strome tied the game on a constroversial play at the 12:07 mark of the third. After Brady Vail was knocked down by Dougie Hamilton bidding for a loose puck, the rangy defenceman collected the puck and spotted Strome, who rifled one past Jordan DeKort (34 saves) to tie the game.

The Spits failed to convert on a power play chance in the final two minutes of overtime.

Michael Clarke and Ho-Sang missed their shootout attempts, while Shipley scored first and Luke Mercer sealed the win for Niagara (6-4-0-0).
