Mathews won last Thursday’s game in overtime, with Chris Barnhardt slipping in the winning goal. Will Sease made it possible for the Devils to take it to overtime with the team’s only goal during regulation play.
As a team, Mathews had 18 shots on goal, led by Sease (eight), Barnhardt (four), Grant Avery (three), Glenn Musgrove (two) and Brandon LaPointe (one). Sease provided the assist on the overtime goal.
Carter Vrooman played an outstanding game in goal with 11 keeper saves, including four in the last 10 seconds due to a corner kick from Middlesex.
