The Dexter hockey team came off the holiday break in a big way with a pair of overtime wins to improve to 4-8 overall on the season.
The Dreadnaughts opened the week by taking out Troy United 3-2 in overtime Wednesday night.
Troy opened the scoring in the first period and it would stay that way until the final minute of the second period when Austn Hutchison took a crossing pass and lifted it into the net to tie the game at 1-1 after two periods.
Jeremy Schroeder put Dexter on top with 1:49 left in the third when he deflected a shot by Cameron Enyedy that trickled across the line to put the Dreads up 2-1.
Troy tied the game up less than a minute later when they knocked home a crossing pass to make it 2-2 and send the game into overtime.

Huron tied it up in the second but less than a minute later Schroeder found the net again to put Dexter back on top 2-1.
The game would be tied at two when Huron scored early in the third and it stayed that way until the overtime period.
