With less than three minutes to go, AA Richard found the back of the net and hung on for the 3-2 win.

In third, the Ventures got on the board, but an empty-net goal late in the period sealed the 3-1 win for the locals.

The nine-goal attack Saturday night against Cabrini was highlighted by two goals and three assists from Ames and a pair of goals and assists from Hodgson and two goals by Riney.
