Dexter jumped to a quick 5-1 lead after one quarter, only to have the Panthers battle back to take the lead at the half.
The regular game was tied at 10-10 after four quarters sending the match into overtime. Jasper Howell scored the game-winner for the Dreadnaughts.
Mason Loudermilk led Dexter with four goals. Gabe Waldrup had two goals and two assists, while Howell and Ryan Lotz finished with two goals each. Cam Palmer added a goal and Evan Chapell picked up an assist. Cooper Howatt made 15 saves in net for the Dreadnaughts.

Canton jumped to a 9-0 halftime lead and cruised from there.
Dexter tried to rally in the second half, outscoring Canton 4-2, but it wasn’t enough.
