Jared Petty scored six goals, including the game-tying goal with 13.1 seconds remaining to force the OT.
Holy Ghost led 8-3 at intermission but didn’t score for the first 23:09 of the second half, by which time Pennsbury had rallied. It was 8-5 at the end of the third and 8-6 before Petty tied it with two goals 26 seconds apart midway through the fourth.
Holy Ghost’s Greg Price made three saves – two on Petty – to keep the score tied. The last came with just under a minute to go and led to transition the other way, which resulted in a Sean Terry goal from Michael Kirby to make it 9-8 with 51 seconds left.
Pennsbury’s Greg Lichtenstein won the face-off, though, and Petty then tied it with 13 seconds left. Price then made another save on Petty as regulation expired.
Matt Rueter won the overtime face-off, and Ghost called timeout. Major, a St. Joe’s commit, bounced one in to end it.
Pennsbury freshman Ben Abraham made 14 saves and was sharp all day in goal.
