Trailing 2-1 heading into the third period, the No. 2 Duluth East boys' hockey team scored three unanswered goals to defeat No. 11 Wayzata 4-2 in the Greyhounds' home opener at the Heritage Sports Center on Saturday.
Haney Porter scored his first career goal with the Greyhounds to draw first blood five minutes into the game. That 1-0 lead stood until the Trojans scored the equalizer five minutes into the second period.
After another goal from Wayzata to end the second period, the Greyhounds started the third period with a game-tying goal from Ricky Lyle. Garret Worth then scored to give Duluth East a 3-2 lead halfway through the third period. Ryder Donovan sealed the win for the Greyhounds with a empty net goal late in third period.
With the win, Greyhounds head coach Mike Randolph now has 598 for his career. Duluth East (1-0-1) next travels to face Bemidji on December 7.
