TRAVERSE CITY — For the second time in three days the Traverse City West Titans found themselves fighting for a win in overtime.

Only this time it was double overtime and karma worked in their favor.

Much like Thursday night, the Titans had a chance to win the game in the final seconds of the overtime period. Only difference is that Erich Springstead buried the game-winning goal off an assist from Josh Reece with six seconds left before the conclusion of the second overtime.

TC West took the 4-3 overtime victory over Midland at the Scott Miller Memorial Tournament at Centre Ice Arena on Saturday afternoon.

Midland jumped to a 2-0 lead before Michael Schermerhorn put the Titans on the board with just under three minutes to play in the first period. Midland responded to make it 3-1 to end the first and the teams went scoreless in the second period.

Tyler Esman put the Titans where they needed to be with two unassisted goals in the third period. Tyler Herzberg took the win in net for the Titans with 32 saves. The Titans will host Gaylord on January 4.
