JACKSONVILLE, FL (WCSC) - A defensive battle ended with an overtime goal from Brendan Harris as the Jacksonville Icemen (22-9-2-1) squeezed out a victory over the South Carolina Stingrays (12-19-4-0) by a final score of 1-0 on Saturday at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena.

A goaltending clash from start to finish got chippy as the teams headed into overtime. After a scrum, the Icemen headed to their fourth power play of the evening.

Abbott Girduckis fed Harris for a one-timer at the top of the circle, where he found the back of the net.
