The Bucks gave new meaning to the phrase finishing strong in Thursday’s come-from-behind win. The Ghosts led 3-2 early in the second period only to see the Bucks silence their attack rest of the way while reeling off five unanswered goals. Keith Orlando spent the game setting up his West teammates, assisting on three goals and scoring another.    
Orlando found Ryan Haywood for the game’s first goal 2:34 into the opening period, but the Ghosts answered with a pair of goals. Joe Stelacio turned a Colin Bruton pass into the equalizer four minutes into the contest, and Gavin O’Donnell (Ethan Weilheimer assist) made it a 3-1 game with a late goal.  Joey DeYoung found the net with a Christian Young assist to make a 3-2 game 14 seconds into the second period, but Tommy Rourke (Gavin O’Donnell/Ryan Gosselin assists) answered with a goal for the Ghosts. It took West just 11 seconds to knot things up when Orlando scored with a Haywood assist. Ben Morris scored a goal that turned out to be the game-winner at the 10:26 mark of the period, using an Orlando assist. The Bucks, who were outshot 24-22 in the opening two periods, controlled play in the third period, outshooting the Ghosts 16-6. Morris (Orlando assist), Daniel Poliak (Christopher Trefz/Pavel Serhiayenka assists) and Matthew McCarthy (Trefz assist) each scored a goal for the Bucks. McCarthy’s came on a power play.
