But, the Dragons dug deep and with their recent playoff comeback as inspiration and controlled the second period. The boys got 2 goals, one from Jacob Doring assisted by Michael Eno and another by Isaac Burtis. With the score tied 3-3 at the start of the third period, Cape scored again but the boys did not go away quietly as they answered with a beauty of a backhander by Jacob Doring assisted by Liam Hemberger.
