The London Knights edged the Niagara IceDogs 3-2 in overtime on Friday.

The IceDogs were quick to score early in the first period, but Nathan Dunkley added one for the Knights with just under two minutes left in the frame to tie things up.

Niagara retook the lead with a goal just over five minutes into the second, but again London was able to tie the game thanks to a goal from William Lochead after 16:32.

After no scoring in the third period, the game was forced into overtime where Josh Nelson scored the game-winner for London after 2:40.

London goalie Jordan Kooy made 38 saves out of 40 shots on net.

The Knights are back on the ice on Sunday to take on the Erie Otters. The puck drops at 2 p.m. in London.
