The Wranglers didn’t give up and late in the third Virgil Kennedy made a wicked tip-in off a hard shot from Colby Glen and an assist from Alex Kuyek to get on the scoreboard.
Then with only one minute left on the clock, the Wranglers kept digging and Kyson Hopson lifted the puck over the goalie’s pad to add a goal with an assist by Elias Moore and Colton Huber Hopkins.
