·1 min read

Tennessee notched an overtime victory over South Carolina Friday night.

The Ice Vols outlasted South Carolina, 4-3 in overtime, at the Knoxville Civic Coliseum as Drew King scored the game-winning goal.

Tennessee (2-3) darted out to a 3-0 lead only to see the Gamecocks force overtime with three unanswered goals in regulation of the South Eastern Hockey Conference game.

Kieran Ogle scored a power play goal for the Ice Vols and Andrej Buchko tallied twice for Tennessee and scored a short-handed goal in the Ice Vols’ home opener.

It was the second overtime win for the Ice Vols, who beat Florida on Sept. 26. King had the game-winner to help Tennessee salvage a split with the Gators in Wesley Chapel, Florida.

The Ice Vols opened their 2021-22 season against Kentucky, where they were swept in Lexington.

Tennessee and the Gamecocks will conclude their two-game series Sunday in Knoxville at 3:30 p.m. EDT.
