Eric Tuori scored on a terrific pass from Griffin Sinden 11 minutes into OT to lift the Vets to a 4-3 victory on Friday night at Southwood Arena over the New Hamburg Firebirds before over 1100 fans.
Sinden was the star of the game for the Vets … scoring twice including the tying goal midway thru the 3rd period to go along with the OT assist.
