Down 2-1 at the start of the second period, the Vees turned back on the play that has led them to their 15 wins this season as they netted the next two goals with the first three minutes of the second frame.

The game’s late hero, Tyler Ho, picked up his second goal of the season off an interception to put the Vees up 4-3 with less than two minutes remaining. Jay O’Brien would then add an empty-netter for the Vees.
