The Screaming Squirrels advanced to their second consecutive championship game Tuesday with a 4-3 victory against the fourth-seeded Renegades in a shootout.
The Squirrels took a 3-1 lead after two periods behind Tom Fischer’s hattrick (two on the power play), but a late two-man advantage gave the Renegades a fighting chance before they tied the game up with 15 seconds remaining.
The teams skated to a scoreless overtime before the shootout, when Tony Richelsen and Mark Tessar scored, and Nabil Allaoua made four saves to seal the win.
The Squirrels will play on Thursday at 9:20 on Resor against the Piranhas, who beat Fat Daddy in overtime, 4-3. This is the second consecutive season the teams will face each other for the championship.
