One night after an 11-goal outburst by the Wellington Dukes, the team relied on solid goaltending and timely offence to beat the Mississauga Chargers.

Julien Jacob ripped home the double-overtime winning goal and Jacob Osborne made a season-high 49 saves in a 2-1 Dukes victory on Saturday.

Osborne and Mississauga netminder Braedon Shaikh faced a combined 106 shots and made some brilliant stops to keep the game low-scoring.

Steven Li beat Osborne for the game’s first goal off a rush at the 16:47 mark of the first period and that lead stood for the bulk of regulation until Edward Moskowitz tied the score in the third.

Moskowitz muscled his way to the net to score on an unassisted wraparound for his seventh of the year at 14:01 to force overtime.

Late in the first overtime period, the Chargers took a penalty and Jacob took advantage just 44 seconds into the fifth period of play with his second goal of the season from Jacob Vreugdenhil and David Campbell to give the Dukes the extra point.

For the second straight game, the Dukes debuted a new defenceman, JH Lages, who came from New Jersey in the Eastern Hockey League.

The Dukes finish the Thanksgiving weekend with four points in the bank and a 6-4 record.

They will play Haliburton County at home at 7:30 p.m. Friday.
