Then it was the Monarchs turn to score a couple goals.  Simonis continued to share the wealth, and got the Monarchs back within on when he found Joe Alvarado on the crease for his third assist of the night.  Nick Sando tied the game at sixes when he redirected a pass from Southron into the back of the net.

The score remained deadlocked until Newberry intercepted a clearing pass in overtime and waltzed in to the ball in the open net for the win.
