Late goal salvages tie for Hornets.


It took a heroic individual effort by DeFellippis to tie the game with 12 seconds left to get the Hornets a 4-4 tie with the Phantoms.

Most of the scoring took place in the first period, as Navy took a 4-2 lead after one. Six different players scored the six goals.

About the only thing that happened in the 2nd, was a too many men call on Navy, which happened a 2nd time in the 3rd period.

That confusion opened the door for the Yellow comeback.

Joe Smith scored midway through the third to cut the lead to 4-3.

Then with time running out, JA slid the puck over to DeFellippis, who whacked it by a stunned Ben Minsk to tie the game at 4-4 with just 12 seconds to play.

"I was playing shot all the way, that guy never passes," said Ben.

In OT Brian Leslie had the best chance to win it, and he even reenacted the play in the shower after game, but in both cases, did not score.

These teams will meet up next week to see if we can get a winner.
