HOW IT HAPPENED 

  • In a mere 31 seconds, Emerson found themselves on top first as O'Rourke potted his first of two goals off a feed from Celotto to start off the first. It was at the 11:34 mark when Bouley slipped Wentworth's equalizer past McGrath and was followed a minute later by the go-ahead goal by Vogt.
  • Within the final five and a half minutes of the first, Emerson found the back of the net two more times. Celotto's goal at 5:24 leveled the game at 2-all before LeBlanc snuck in a goal at 4:46 to put Wentworth back on top at 3-2. After the Leopards went up, sophomore Birk Swan sent in a man-down tally as the quarter ended at 3-all. 
  • The opening five minutes of the second saw Emerson and Wentworth exchange goals as two ties occurred. After Celotto sent in the 5-all net at 10:22, the Leopards strung a pair of goals together from Bouley and Madden to take the two-goal 7-5 lead. 
  • 14 ticks left in the half was enough time for Emerson to put in one more goal as O'Rourke helped inch the Lions back within one at 7-6 at the break. 
  • Out of the gate of the third was when Wentworth gained their biggest lead of three at 9-6. Bouley started off the Leopards' scoring streak that was followed with a marker from Vogt at 7:36. 
  • The remainder of the third belonged to Emerson, for the Lions fired in three consecutive goals past Monroe to lock the score at 9-all. In a span of just over three minutes, an unassisted tally from Franklin followed by goals from Celotto and Fulgione knotted the game up at nine. 
  • Despite being narrowly outshot by Wentworth, 8-6, in the fourth, Emerson turned four of their six shots into goals. 
  • Celotto potted the go-ahead 10-9 goal 34 seconds in to give the Lions their first lead, a lead which they never surrendered through the rest of regulation. The help of goals from Eldredge, Celotto and Fulgoine gave Emerson its biggest lead at four at 13-9. 
  • At 6:47, McKenna sent in Wentworth's final goal to move the score to 13-10. Wentworth attempted three more shots through the final six and a half minutes, two of which were stopped by McGrath to help Emerson hold on to the 13-10 comeback victory.
