North Allegheny answered two minutes later with a marker by Michael Kramer, assisted by William Rahenkamp and Dawson Richard, to trim the score to 2-1.  Peters Township’s Evan Opeka scored with just two seconds to go in the period to give the Indians a 3-1 lead.  With a quiet third period, the Indians held on for the two goal victory.

Peters Township outshot North Allegheny 31-18 in the game.  Indians goalie Brian Baker made 17 saves and NA net minder Bradford Thornburgh stopped 30 pucks on the night.
