' "The team was really up for the game. I felt like I let them down in the middle of the second, but we never gave up. It was a. team effort entirely. When you can come back like that and win, you know you're the best!," according to Mandra. A tight game from the onset; the lead changed hands several times and was tied at five apiece late in the third, apparently destined for sudden death overtime when Bruin Co-Captain Jeff Campos exploded for his second goal of the night with only 42 seconds remaining. "It was nothing," explained Campos. "Just a lucky shot." Daley opened the scoring at 7:29 in the first period when Spencer Kalker pushed an unassisted shot past Titan goalie Gary Losik. Campos picked the puck up from the blue line and skated it in alone for the second Bruin goal at 3:59.

The Bruins tallied their only goal of the second early when rookie John Ruane picked up a pass from Eddie Sobczak and Jeff Kirsch in the slot and put it into the opposite corner of the net for the third Daley goal. MVCC dominated the remainder of the period as Jeff Pipala scored two of his three and John Sarsfield scored once in four minutes to put Moraine in the lead, 4-3. The third and fourth goals were power play efforts, as the Bruins boasted a total of six penalties in the period, four of them in the last three minutes. Third period scoring opened with Spencer Kalker taking a pass from Don Dybas at the blue line and slapping it in to tie the game at 4 all. Just over a half of a minute later, Dybas scored his own as he picked* the puck from the back of the net and deflected it off of Losik's glove. Late in the period, Pipala completed his hat trick when he had another power play situation at 1:18 and scored to tie the game once more on a boomer shot. With 0:42 remaining, Kalker centered the puck in front of the net and Campos bpped the winning shot be tween the Titan goalie's legs. "There was no question of sudden death overtime," the winning coach declared "We would have won anyhow! At the end of the second period, we did some careless things, and the guys were frustrated. We should have blown it open in the beginning of the period. I explained that they would have to work out their frustrations and play their best because this would be the last period of hockey of the season. They worked hard that period, the mark of a good group of men that can come through in the clutch and won the game. What more can I say?"
