Park senior captain Nate Youso netted the game-winner for the Wolfpack, stuffing home a rebound to beat the buzzer, and the Raptors.

Youso's goal was the third-straight for Park, which trailed 3-1 after the second period.

In the game, after Park (3-9-1; 2-5-1 SEC) took a 1-0 lead on a goal by senior Luke Vogelgesang with 8:18 remaining in the first period, East Ridge (3-11-1; 0-8-0 SEC) reeled off three consecutive goals bridging the first and second periods to take a two-goal lead.

However, goals by Youso and senior Brandyn Graff tied the game 3-3 with 7:37 remaining in the third period, allowing Youso to provide the heroics in the game's final seconds.

For Park, Youso had three points -- all in the third period -- on two goals and an assist, while Vogelgesang had a goal and an assist.

For East Ridge, sophomores Easton Halbert and Braedon Hyland each had two points on a goal and an assist and junior Tim Wegleitner had one goal.
