The Alvinston Killer Bees stung the Stratford Irish 6-5 win in extra time Saturday.

Carson Perry opened the scoring on a penalty shot in the first period but the home team came back with three straight goal to take a 3-1 advantage into the first intermission. The Bees registered goals by Dawson Winchester and Jacob Chantler 32 second apart midway through the second period but the Fighting Irish scored a late goal to a 4-3 advantage into the dressing room after 40 minutes. In the third, James McEwan scored twice in the final four-and-half minutes to give the Bees a 5-4 lead before Stratford sent the contest to overtime with a tying goal in the final minute of regulation.
