Published 2:16 am Wednesday, December 2, 2009

Albert Lea’s Tyler Brackey netted the game-winning goal Tuesday on a penalty shot in overtime to give the Tigers a 4-3 overtime victory over Waseca in Waseca.

“I thought it was going to be a tight game,” said Albert Lea head coach Roy Nystrom. “I think there’s going to be a lot of these types of games.”

The Bluejays (0-1) rallied from a 3-0 deficit to tie the game at 10:47 in the third period when Brad McIntosh scored.

Albert Lea outshot the Bluejays 31 to 21.
