Onto the second period, with Swan Valley leading 2-1, Nico Labossiere potted his 9th of the season to tie it at 2’s. 40 seconds later, Connor Barley scored to put the Steelers ahed 3-2.
Empty nets became the theme in the third period as the Barley boys (Carter and Connor) each scored 1 of their own to end the game 5-2. Hayden Dola was between the pipes to get his 14th win of the season, making 28 saves on 30 shots.
