Levi Cable's overtime winner moved the University of Saskatchewan past York at the University Cup.
One year ago, the Saskatchewan Huskies needed four overtimes to advance from the quarterfinals at the University Cup.
In 2017, it took just 1:01 of extra time to beat York University 1-0 and advance to the U Sports final four of men's hockey.
Levi Cable was the hero, his wrist shot from the top of the right-hand circle found a way through Lions goalie Mack Shields.
“It was a nice bounce, gave us a 2-on-1, I shot low glove and it trickled across the line,” said Cable.
Goalie Jordon Cooke was the player of the game for the Huskies, earning a shutout with 24 saves. His performance included a goal line save with 0.5 seconds left in the first period, getting his glove on the puck with the net gaping.
The Huskies will face either the StFX X-Men or the McGill Redmen in Saturday’s semifinal.
