Verona's Charlie Parker scored 53 seconds into the second period and then Brogan Baker added another second-period goal.

"This group they defiantly come together as a family one of our best lines tonight was our third line which in previous games have not got a whole lot of ice time," said Joel Marshall, Verona head coach.

"After the first goal we all got the good confidence and stuff and that quick goal in the second was huge and everyone is getting up. We knew it would be a tough team and we didn't know the outcome and we worked hard and we buried our chances," said Phil Fromberger, Verona senior.

"The team played outstanding. It was a great group effort by every player every line and everyone contributed and we were able to get the win so it's great," said Charlie Parker, Verona senior.
