HOW IT HAPPENED 

  • On a feed from Radenberg from behind the net, Brush whipped Emerson's first goal past Hayward from within the right post to put the Lions on top 1-0 at the 13:48 of the opening frame.
  • Starting at 12:59, Mount Ida erased its one goal deficit and whipped four unassisted goals past Kennedy over the next four minutes to give themselves a three-goal cushion at 4-1.
  • Emerson, however, answered and took control of the final 8:06 in the first quarter, putting in three straight goals from Doyle, Brush and senior James Monroe-Chausse (Cape Elizabeth, Me.) as the score was squared at 4-all entering the second. 
  • Within the second quarter, Emerson dominated on the offensive end and outscored Mount Ida 3-1 to carry a two-goal lead of 7-5 into the half. 
  • Franklin kicked off Emerson's scoring at 11:11 with the go-ahead 5-4 goal off a feed from Meyers before Mount Ida tallied its only goal of the quarter from Donahue at 6:29 to even the score again at 5-5. 
  • A pair of markers from Radenberg, including one unassisted at 5:16 followed by a man-up net at 3:57, helped push the Lions ahead entering the half. 
  • Even though Mount Ida outshot Emerson 11-7 within the third, the score once again was in a lock at 9-9. 
  • The Mustangs fired in the third's first trio of nets, including a pair from Donahue, to erase the Lions' two goal cushion and knotted the score 7-7 with 11:09 on the clock. 
  • Goals from Brush and Radenburg broke up Mount Ida's scoring streak and put in a pair of nets that ultimately put the Lions back on top, 9-8, at the 4:36 mark. 
  • Eason spoiled Emerson's lead a little over three minutes later with the visitors ninth goal, yet again evening the score at 9-9. 
  • Mount Ida held its biggest advantage since 9:23 of the first quarter and maintained a lead of two goals at 12-10 after Gengarelly sent in the 12th Mustangs goal at 5:14 of the fourth. 
  • Meyers gave the Lions life deep into the fourth and kept the hosts in striking distance with the Lions' 11th goal at the 2:05 mark with the score now down to 12-11. 
  • With regulation time winding down, Emerson capitalized on a costly unnecessary roughness penalty committed by Mount Ida as Radenberg fed Brush for the equalizing net at the .14 second mark that sent the game into extra periods at 12-12. 
  • Both teams registered two shots within the first overtime, but were unable to find the back of the net as the game entered a second overtime. 
  • Mount Ida was slammed with an offside call at 2:21 that gave the man-up advantage to Emerson as time winded down. 
  • At the 1:58 mark and still on the man- up advantage, Emerson capitalized as Meyers sent in the game-winner past Hayward to give the Lions the 13-12 double overtime win.
