End of the second, with a 4-2 lead.
Goal number 5. A shpt from the point by Jason Kean.

Goal 6. This one by Clark Jones.
It's been a while since the Union side had that number on it.
Goal 7 - Jason Ralph picks up another assist, this one on a Jeff Sproat goal.
It was Sproat's first of the year, and came shorthanded.
Looks like a safe lead.
And Union holds on for the 8-6 win, after allowing two late power play goals to Colgate.
