The Charlotte Hounds lost 13-12 in a crucial game against the Ohio Machine on Saturday night, as Tom Schreiber scored 4 minutes, 59 seconds into overtime.

With the victory, the Machine moved into a two-way tie with the Boston Cannons for the fourth and final playoff spot.

The Hounds fall to 4-7 and remain fifth in the standings. Schreiber was named player of the game for his four points, including the winning goal. The Hounds’ effort was led by Justin Ward with three goals and Ryan Young with two, including the equalizer to force the extra period.

While three goals were scored in the game’s opening three minutes, defense was the story of the first half. The Machine’s Eric O’Brien won the opening faceoff to set up Logan Schuss with a goal just 41 seconds into the first quarter.

Mike Chanenchuk answered just over a minute later, but Peter Baum followed with a goal of his own to put the Machine back in front 2-1. The next 6:54 went scoreless, with big saves on each end from goalies Adam Ghitelman and Brian Phipps, before Derek Maltz found space and got a shot off to give the Machine a 3-1 lead after one.
