The team played scoreless periods in the first and third quarters, but Curley forged a 4-3 lead at the half. Glenelg Country fought back from two-goal deficits twice in the second half to send the game into overtime.
Josh Knapp added two scores for the Friars, while Scott Kahl, Noah Kellner, Brandon Smith and CJ Pentz all scored once each.
Glenelg Country received hat-tricks from Nelson LeQuang and Riley Schmidt, while Cameron Martin added two goals and one assist. Mikey Welsh also scored for the Dragons and Grant Banister had an assist.
In goal, Brayden Franey had 12 saves for GCS, while Curley’s Alex Sholz stopped 10 shots.
