Westcor 9 vs. Zero Pucks Given 7
Westcor pulled off a stunning comeback when John Kuzniar (1), Brian Przybyszewski(1), and Mark Abraham(2) added four consecutive goals in the last 2 minutes to turn the tables, as the clock ran out for ZPG. Iron man Dom Anselmo also took home his third win in four consecutive games.
